Out of the new cases reported today, 170 were detected at correctional facilities. Tens of thousands of inmates at Thailand’s prisons and detention centres have tested positive for Covid-19 over the past several months.

Vaccinations have slowed a bit in the last week, but today a drive began to give third booster shots to 150,000 people at Bang Sue Grand Station and a drive is beginning to prioritise vaccination for teachers.
