Another record high of 13,655 new Covid-19 cases and 87 coronavirus-related deaths were reported today by the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration. In the latest and most severe wave of Covid-19, first recorded on April 1, the CCSA has reported a total of 424,269 infections. Since the start of the pandemic last year, the CCSA has reported 453,132 Covid-19 infections and 3,697 coronavirus-related deaths.

Of the new cases, 545 were reported in correctional facilities. More than 40,000 inmates at Thailand’s overcrowded prisons have tested positive for the virus in the recent wave.

In the worst-case scenario, the daily infection count could reach 20,000 to even 30,000, a CCSA spokesperson said earlier this week. Strict measures including restrictions on travel, nightly curfews, and business closures have been imposed in 13 “dark red” provinces with the highest infection rates.
