3,481 new Covid-19 cases and 32 coronavirus-related deaths were reported today in the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration’s daily briefing. There are now 42,827 active Covid-19 cases in Thailand. Since the start of the pandemic last year, the CCSA has reported a total of 123,066 confirmed Covid-19 cases and 735 virus-related deaths.
Out of the new cases, 1,036 infections were reported in Bangkok, the epicentre in the latest wave of Covid-19, and 951 infections were reported at correctional facilities, adding to the thousands of coronavirus cases at Thailand’s packed prisons. A spokesperson said active case finding in high risk areas continues in “full steam.”
The State of Emergency has been extended to July 31 to help combat the spread of Covid-19. The decree, which has been extended several times, gives government the ability to set certain policies and procedures to help control the spread of the virus such as travel restrictions and closure orders.
