In the 24 hour period since the last count, the CCSA has reported 5,202 recoveries, up 1,260 from yesterday. Since the beginning of the third wave of Covid-19 on April 1, 2021, a total of 2,216,343 have recovered from a Covid-19 infection.

The amount of people receiving medical care for Covid-19 has more than doubled in the past 10 days. There are now 77,368 people currently receiving treatment for Covid-19, up 2,573 from yesterday, including 527 in the ICU ( down 35 over last week) and 105 on ventilators ( down 51 over last week).

COVID-19 VACCINE UPDATES

While the official figures from the Department of Disease Control have been changed and revised frequently, with daily figures sometimes being changed by hundreds of thousands of vaccines, the below represents the most current information on Covid-19 vaccinations the DDC has released, however accurate it may be.

As Thailand focuses on booster shots over new vaccinations, yesterday the country surpassed 10 million people with their first booster shot. Only about 350,000 people started the vaccination process with their first injection in the past 10 days, while fully vaccinated figures increased by 1 million in those 10 days, with 47.1 million people having received 2 doses.

COVID-19 PROVINCIAL TOTALS

COVID-19 SATURDAY: Hospitalisations double in a week, 10 million boosters | News by Thaiger

 

Today Bangkok overtook Chon Buri as the province with the most daily Covid-19 infections, though Chon Buri has been the most infected province for all but 5 days since the start of 2022. Phuket had surged for the past 2 weeks, but peaked at 513 on the 10th and has been trending downward since.

The Department of Disease Control and CCSA has revamped their data for 2022, dropping the continuous tally since the third wave of Covid-19 on April 1 (though The Thaiger still tracks it) since some call the Omicron variant Thailand’s fifth wave.

They’ve hit the reset button and total infection numbers are now from January 1, 2022. The provinces with the highest number of new Covid-19 infections over the last 24 hours are as follows:

PROVINCE TODAY FROM YESTERDAY TOTAL
2 Bangkok 777 8,436
3 Samut Prakan 681 6,687

9 Nakhon Si Thammarat 194 2,444
8 Chiang Mai 179 2,892
7 Khon Kaen 177 3,321

 

Amid a nationwide surge in Covid-19 infections and the rapidly-spreading Omicron variant, there were no provinces to have zero new infections yesterday. Full provincial Covid-19 figures are below:
