559 new Covid-19 cases and 1 death were reported today in the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration’s daily briefing.

There are now 2,645 active Covid-19 cases in Thailand.

There are several clusters of infections throughout Thailand, mostly involving a young adult population who frequent bars and nightclubs, according to deputy spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Natapanu Nopakun, who gives the CCSA report in English.

Additionally there were 16 new cases reported in Phuket today and 148 in Chiang Mai. Both figures will be added to the national total tomorrow.
