17,165 new Covid-19 cases and 226 coronavirus-related deaths were reported today by the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration. Another 20,059 patients were marked as “recovered” in the 24-hour period since the last count. In the latest and most severe wave of the virus in Thailand, first recorded on April 1, the CCSA has reported a total of 1,055,088 Covid-19 cases.

There are now 192,334 active Covid-19 cases in Thailand. The number has been on a downward trend over the past several days as the daily count for new recoveries has been higher than the count for new infections.

Out of the new cases, 192 were found in correctional facilities. The latest wave of the virus spread to Thailand’s overcrowded prisons, infecting more than 40,000 inmates. New cases at jails and detention centres have been reported on a daily basis.

Other updates…

  • There have been around 6,000 breaches of disease control measures recently, including those who  travelled between “dark red” and “red” zones, a spokesperson said at yesterday’s CCSA press briefing. “Dark red” zones, including Bangkok, are under maximum and strict control to combat Covid-19. Interprovincial public transportation from “dark red” zones is suspended, at least until the end of the month. Travel should be avoided, unless it is essential.
  • With numerous Covid-19 clusters reported at fresh markets, Thailand’s Public Health Ministry plans to submit a proposal to the CCSA for the testing of more than 200,000 people at every fresh market in the 29 provinces classified as “dark red” zones.
