190 coronavirus related-deaths were reported today, a decline over the past few weeks as the daily Covid death count has been in the 200s and hit a high of 312 on August 18. The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration reported 14,666 new Covid-19 cases and 19,245 recoveries in the 24-hour period since the last count.

Thailand now has 171,368 active Covid-19 cases, a downward trend as the number of new recoveries continues to exceed the number of new infections. In the latest and most severe wave of Covid-19, first recorded on April 1, the CCSA has recorded 1,175,866 confirmed Covid-19 cases.

Out of the new cases reported today, 304 were found in correctional facilities. More than 40,000 inmates in Thailand’s overcrowded prisons have tested positive for Covid-19 over the past several months. Infections at jails and detention centres have been reported on a daily basis.

Other updates…

  • The Thai Cabinet approved a 4.75 billion baht budget for 9.9 million more doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine, according to the government’s news bureau.
  • Following the CCSA’s decision to ease restrictions in “dark red” zones, the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration announced they were revising the provincial order to be line with the national measures, allowing parks, sports stadiums, department stores, and other venues to reopen.
