2,179 new Covid-19 cases and 15 coronavirus-related deaths were reported today by the Ministry of Public Health’s Department of Disease Control. Since the start of the pandemic last year, Thailand has reported 59,687 Covid-19 infections and 163 coronavirus-related deaths.

The recent wave of infections over the past month makes up more than half of Thailand’s total count with 30,824 people infected with Covid-19 since April 1. This month, 69 Covid patients have died.

There are now 25,973 active Covid-19 infections in Thailand including 628 people who are in serious condition and 169 patients who are on a ventilator.

Of the 15 new Covid-related deaths, 9 were in Bangkok. A spokesperson for the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration says most of the fatalities were people with pre-existing conditions of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, or asthma.

Over the past month, Covid-19 has been linked to the deaths of 69 people. A spokesperson for the CCSA says 55% of those fatalities have been people over 60 years old.

While most deaths are older adults and the elderly, recently a number of young adults in their 20s and 30s have died after contracting Covid-19. Most of those patients were obese or had pre-existing conditions of diabetes.

Disease control measures

The following provinces have an official request for people to stay home during the following times. But they’re not curfews, just requests, for now.

• Nonthaburi, 9pm – 4am

• Samut Sakhon, 11pm – 4am

• Pathum Thani, 9pm – 4am

• Surat Thani, 10pm – 4am

    In 1 week the numbers will drop. All this fear that hundreds of thousands going to die is non sense. Ignore it. Be careful out there. Team mask wants your freedoms! They don’t care about rational views of statistics. Or proper pcr reporting ct #s

    Cases from a PCR test mean absolutely nothing as at 4 cycles anything will be a case including a papaya. It is a sysop only and a criminal one and all involved will end up in jail no matter how high they are in position. Nuremberg 2 is in motion and the psychopaths with fake fear pandemic will be tried for genocide for the vax as that is the real poison
