Today was a great day for Covid-19 news as the numbers have improved from yesterday for every single metric except for infections brought in from abroad which jumped from 16 yesterday to 24 today. Daily infections and deaths are down, with deaths hitting the lowest number since the third wave of Covid-19 began in April. The total number of hospitalisations was reduced about 28% in the last 10 days, and ICU and ventilator patients continued to fall as well.

The CCSA reported 3,787 new Covid-19 infections, down 292 since yesterday, and 20 Coronavirus-related deaths, down 19 from yesterday. Since April 1, in the latest wave of the virus in Thailand, a total of 2,139,773 confirmed Covid-19 infections have been reported.

COVID-19 VACCINES

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. (The daily chart shows what the same statistics were listed as yesterday as compared to revisions made today that increased vaccines across the board.)
