In the 24-hour period since the last count, the CCSA has recorded 17,936 more recoveries. There are now 163,680 active Covid-19 cases. The wave is on a downward slope as new recoveries continue to exceed new cases.

Out of the new cases today, 356 were found in correctional facilities. More than 40,000 inmates in Thailand’s overcrowded prisons have tested positive for the virus. Over the past several months, Covid-19 cases at the jails and detention centres have been reported on a daily basis.

The CCSA has mentioned using a “Green Pass” for those who are vaccinated, and a “Yellow Pass” for those who recently recovered.
  • 32.6 million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine have been administered since the start of the Thai government’s mass immunisation campaign on February 28.
