The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration reported 20,515 new Covid-19 cases and a record high of 312 coronavirus-related deaths. Since the start of the pandemic last year, the CCSA has reported a total of 968,967 confirmed Covid-19 infections and 8,285 coronavirus-related fatalities.

There are now 207,553 people in Thailand receiving treatment for the coronavirus, a decline over the past few days as the number of new recoveries, at 22,682 today, exceeds the number of new cases.

Today’s high death count is partly due to provinces reporting the number of deaths over the past several days rather than just over a 24-hour period, according to Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Natapanu Nopakun, who gives the daily CCSA report in English.

“This high fatality rate is because some provinces in the past day have reported the accumulated number of fatalities, meaning that they reported the fatalities a bit late.”

Bangkok remains the epicentre of the recent wave with 4,154 new Covid-19 cases today. Infection rates in provinces surrounding the capital are also still high with 1,820 new cases in Samut Sakhon today, 1,335 in Samut Prakan, and 756 in Nonthaburi. The case count also remains high in Chon Buri, which includes Pattaya, with 1,206 new cases today.
