The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration logged another 9,317 confirmed Covid-19 infections and 87 coronavirus-related deaths. In the latest and most severe wave of the virus, the CCSA has recorded 334,166 Covid-19 cases since April 1.

The virus is still spreading in Thailand’s overcrowded prisons and health officials have been rolling out active testing to identify infections, even asymptomatic, and contain the virus. Out of the new cases reported today, 129 were found in correctional facilities. Over the past few months, more than 30,000 inmates at Thai prisons have tested positive for Covid-19.

More information will be released following the CCSA’s press briefing this afternoon…
