3,886 new Covid-19 cases and 39 coronavirus-related deaths were reported by the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration. Since April 1, the latest wave of infections in Thailand, the CCSA has recorded 140,485 Covid-19 infections with more than 40,000 of those infections in Bangkok.
Out of the new cases, 1,230 were detected in correctional facilities. Over the past month, thousands of inmates at more than a dozen Thai prisons have tested positive for Covid-19. Health officials have been rolling out active testing at prisons to quickly identify infections and contain the virus.
Disease control measures remain strict in Bangkok, the epicentre of infections in the latest wave. Closure orders on many non-essential businesses and venues will remain in effect until at least June 14.
More information will be released this afternoon following the CCSA’s daily briefing.
