4,059 new Covid-19 cases and 35 coronavirus-related deaths were reported this morning by the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration. In the recent and most severe wave of the coronavirus in Thailand, the CCSA has recorded 196,502 infections since April 1, making up the vast majority of Thailand’s total count since the start of the pandemic last year.

The new wave of infections started in Bangkok’s nightlife districts and spread throughout Thailand, leading to outbreaks in crowded areas like factories, construction camps and Thailand’s overcrowded prisons. Out of the new cases recorded today, 75 were found in correctional facilities, adding to the more than 30,000 inmates who tested positive for the virus in the recent wave.

More information will be released this afternoon following the CCSA’s daily briefing.

Other updates…

  • Japan is donating an unspecified amount of AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine doses to Thailand. The agreement will be signed this week and the doses will arrive next month.
  • The CCSA is no longer providing free state quarantine for Thais returning from overseas. Thai citizens must pay for a 14-day stay at an approved Alternative State Quarantine hotel.
  • Restrictions eased in Bangkok, allowing more venues to reopen and activities to resume. Swimming pools, education centres, libraries, and sporting events without spectators can reopen. Open-air restaurants can reopen and operate at 100% capacity while air-conditioned restaurants must operate at 50% capacity. Restaurants can now stay open until 11pm. Alcohol is still prohibited.
