Thailand national figures for Covid-19 patients – May 4

Today Dr. Taweesilp Visanuyothin, the spokesperson for the Centre for Covid-19 Administration has revealed the number of Covid-19 infections in the past 24 hours in Thailand. There were 18 new cases of Covid-19 patients, bringing the total to 2,987 patients.

Of the 18 cases, (17 are female and 1 male) all came from the Songkhla Quarantine Centre and all cases were reported as being imported, not local infections.

• 1 additional patient discharged from hospital

• Total number of recovered patients is 2,740 cases

• 193 patients are still in hospital receiving medical care.

• No additional deaths today, total remains at 54 deaths

But there is a possibility that the Songkhla cases could be removed from the tally. Initial test results from the testing lab in Songkhla were positive, but a second round tests turned out to be negative.

Dr. Taweesilp says the samples are being sent to the main testing labs in Bangkok to check for accuracy. The results are expected within days.

The highest number of infections are in Bangkok and Nonthaburi, totalling to 1,697 people, with an average age of between 20-29 years (763 cases).

There were no new cases announced in Phuket today.
