3,886 new Covid-19 cases and 39 coronavirus-related deaths were reported by the CCSA. 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. The capital is still recoding nearly 1,000 new cases each day.

Phuket, racing towards its July 1 ‘reopening’ reported another 6 cases today as 6 vaccine locations today have been busily vaccinating thousands of resident, including foreigners with work permits.

Out of the new cases reported by the CCSA today, 1,230 were detected in Thai prisons. 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.

The CCSA is warning large factories that they must complete preventative measure self-assessments by June 15. The CCSA needs these assessments to support its work to contain the spread of the virus and companies will be punished if they refuse to cooperate. So far, only 650 of the 3,300 large factories across the country have completed a required self-assessment of sanitation at their premises.

Here are the provincial totals. Graphics from the NBT…

  1. Thank you very much for resuming publishing the daily provincial case numbers. My Thai friends on Phuket rely on me to fwd this info to them….because apparently it’s not available in the local Thai media….for whatever reason.

  2. What a whole lots of rubbish. This is the biggest lie of the century. Because they want to vaccinate as many people as possible using fear mongering inventing some so called Covid cases.and these journalists and reporters are participating spreading lies and they get paid for it by committing crimes against humanity.

  3. Based on how many tests? 12,000-15,000 a day? That’s what counts. Do 50,000-60,000-70,000 tests a day and now we’re talking. It seems countries have found a cheap way to keep their spot on the “chart of shame” low, extremely limited testing.

    For comparison purposes, the US has conducted about 500 million tests to date. Has China conducted 2 billion tests? They make sure to test entire few cities to grab headlines, but that’s just 100 million total. They also don’t include asymptomatic people on the chart.

  4. 3,961,589 is the total number of doses, not the number of people vaccinated. 2,727,759 million have received their first dose of which 1,233,830 have received their second dose.
