Phuket, which has now closed all points of entry by land and sea, and today closed its airport, has reported 9 new Covid-19 coronavirus cases today (Friday). That’s less than half of yesterday’s 21 cases and even lower than Wednesday’s 14. The new cases bring the total on the southern island to 170 since the outbreak began in January.

No fatalities have been reported from the disease in Phuket in the past 24 hours.

Phuket has become a hotspot for new cases and many districts now have restricted access. The government has announced new travel restrictions for the island that go into effect next Monday.

Here are the details of today’s new cases…
