320 close contacts were tested through contact-tracing, and 485 people were tested proactively over the past day. All are waiting for test results. Chonburi Public Health Department officials say that almost all of the new infections are being spread by private gatherings, mostly small groups of 2 to 3 people. They continue to request that people not participate in any activities with anyone outside of their own household and continue to work from home if possible and avoid public places.

Chon Buri is releasing a Covid-19 timeline of a recent market cluster that is seeing 19 cases of the virus so far. The Chonburi Public Health Office is asking those who visited the places listed below, to notify health authorities and monitor their health for Covid symptoms.

The following is an English version of the timeline, translated by The Pattaya News:

  1. Phra Phrom Market in Nong Kham, Si Racha on May 1 from 9:30am to 11am
  2. Thong Lang Market in Khlong Tamru, Mueang Chonburi on May 1 from 3pm to 8pm
  3. Thong Kung Klong Tom Market in Na Pa, Mueang Chonburi on May 7 from 3pm to 8 pm

Yesterday, the province reported 73 infections and 1 death. No details have been released on that case yet. This week will also see wider scale testing at factories and high-risk occupations in the province.
