73 new Covid-19 cases and 1 death were reported today in the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration’s daily briefing. Thailand now has 1,122 active cases. Since the start of the pandemic last year, the CCSA reported a total of 27,876 coronavirus infections and 91 deaths.

A 60 year old Thai man in Bangkok died after testing positive for Covid-19. He had underlying illnesses including lung cancer, diabetes and high blood pressure. He tested positive on March 14 and died 4 days later.

Out of the 73 new Covid-19 cases, 44 were detected in active case finding, 22 were local transmissions and 7 were detected in quarantine for those arriving in the country from overseas.

A new cluster of infections was reported in Samut Prakan, just outside Bangkok, and is said to be linked to a construction camp where workers live in crowded dormitories. Health officials are now rolling out active case finding in the area.

In Samut Sakhon, the epicentre in the recent wave of infections southwest of Bangkok, there have been more than 35,000 vaccinations with the AstraZeneca vaccine, according to deputy spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Natapanu Nopakun, who reports the CCSA update in English.

“This is a step in a very positive direction.”
