Today, the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration reported 9,489 new cases and 129 coronavirus-related deaths. Since April 1, in Thailand’s latest wave of virus, the CCSA has recorded 1,552,552 confirmed covid-19 infections.

In the 24-hour period since the last count, the CCSA has reported 12,805 recoveries. There are now 116,711 people in Thailand currently receiving treatment for Covid-19.

Out of the new cases, 269 were found at correctional facilities. Tens of thousands of inmates at Thailand’s overcrowded prisons and detention centres have tested positive for Covid-19 over the past several months.

Yesterday, the CCSA approved several measures, including…

  • Reducing the mandatory quarantine period for vaccinated arrivals. Starting Friday, fully vaccinated travellers will now face quarantine of 7 days instead of 14. Unvaccinated arrivals, or those who cannot prove their vaccination status, will still be subject to a longer quarantine period of between 10 and 14 days.
  • Shortening the nighttime curfew in “dark red” zones. In Bangkok and other provinces that are classified as “dark red” zones, the curfew will now run from 10pm to 4am, just an hour shorter than the current 9pm to 4am stay-at-home order.
  • Emergency Decree extended until the end of November. The decree has been in place since the start of the pandemic in March 2020, having been extended several times since. The order gives the government sweeping powers to impose disease control measures and restrictions. The CCSA was also established under the emergency decree. The government is currently drafting an amendment to the Communicable Disease Act to replace the order.
