The daily numbers of Covid-19 infections in Thailand have remained steady around the 15,000 mark, a drop from the peak and recent daily totals well above 20,000 infections. Today’s 257 deaths still remains a high figure but is expected to ease over time.

Out of 1.26 million people infected in Thailand since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, over 1 million people have recovered from Covid-19 infections while about 155,000 are still receiving medical treatment and over 12,000 have died. The 20,351 people released from treatment outweighs the 15,942 new infections, a trend that has continued for 2 weeks now, and a vital figure that helps prevent overcrowding in hospitals.

A total of over 35 million people have received at least one vaccine at this point, with just shy of 25 million having one dose and about 9.7 million receiving 2 doses. An additional 600,000, mostly frontline medical workers, have received a 3rd dose or booster shot.


Bangkok continues to lead infections in Thailand with 3,835 infections today, a figure that about doubles to 7270 when including the 5 surrounding provinces. In the North Uttaradit had the most infections with 62, As Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai reported 27 and 31 infections respectively. Nakhon Ratchasima, where yesterday police investigating a gold robbery discovered the thief was one of their officers, had the most Covid-19 infections in the Northeast with 296.

Chon Buri lead the East provinces with 955 infections, far higher than any other province, while in the West Ratchaburi had the most infections with 502 and Prachuap Khiri Khan had 130 infections as Hua Hin aims for an October 1 reopening. The South saw Surat Thani, home of the Samui Plus reopening, have 210 infections while Deep South province Narathiwat had the worst figures with 341 infections.

Other recent Covid-19 news:

  • The closely watched Phuket Covid-19 figures still hover at over 200 a day, with 242 infections being slightly lower than the record high of 257 cases seen just last Tuesday.

Now only 85 of the 26,400 Phuket Sandbox arrivals in the 2 months of the programme have been infected after arriving on the island.
