2,662 new Covid-19 cases and 28 coronavirus-related deaths were reported today by the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration. Since April 1, the start of the latest wave of infections in Thailand, the CCSA has reported 153,685 Covid-19 cases.

Out of the new cases reported today, 534 were reported in correctional facilities. Over the past month, more than a dozen Thai prisons have reported Covid-19 outbreaks with thousands of inmates infected with the virus. New cases at prisons have been reported about everyday.

There are now 49,252 active Covid-19 cases in Thailand. Since the start of the pandemic last year, the CCSA has reported a total of 182,548 Covid-19 infections and 1,297 coronavirus-related deaths.

Cases remain high in Bangkok with 1,098 new infections confirmed today. Many clusters in Bangkok are at construction camps. In surrounding provinces, 269 new cases were reported in Samut Prakan, 75 cases in Samut Sakhon, and 77 in Nonthaburi.

While Bangkok remains the Covid hotspot in the latest wave, Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Natapanu Nopakun says the situation in other provinces has improved.
