Covid UPDATE: 1,390 new infections, 3 new deaths

Tim Newton



Thailand’s CCSA has reported a total of 1,390 new Covid infections today, tallied from Thailand’s 77 provinces in the past 24 hours. The tally is a welcome drop in new case reports after the last 5 days’ record levels of new infections. Yesterday there were 1,767 new infections reported by the CCSA.

3 more people have died of Covid-related illnesses, 14,851 people remain under state supervision. Bangkok had 293 new infections and the surrounding provinces 210.

After Bangkok with 293 new infections, Chiang Mai reported 197 cases, Chon Buri 98, Samut Prakan (south east of Bangkok) 82, Nonthaburi (directly north west of Bangkok) 39, Nakhon Pathom 38, and Samut Sakhon 32 and Songkhla 32.

Thailand’s total has now reached 43,742 people since the start of Thailand’s outbreak on January 13 last year. Only 6 of today’s new infections were imported.

Meanwhile, the next school term, scheduled to kick off again next month, could be deferred until June due to the current situation. Thai Education Minister Treenuch Thienthong says the proposed postponement will be discussed with the Office of the Basic Education Commission today.

The Ministry of Interior has just updated their ‘List of Provinces with Entry Restrictions’ bringing the new total to 47. The message from the government is that if you’re in the red zone you should try and stay. At least not leave your province.

Here’s the latest list of colour-coded provinces relating to their entry restrictions with English list underneath…

    Unbridled panic by the Press should be tempered with cool heads.

    Seems like Thaiger is afraid of the truth since my post from the this morning is missing.
    It’s a pity because the link would have brought the truth of the Covid hoax to Thailand.
    Never mind, try Twitter instead – at least the link will be there.
    The truth will find its way to Thailand gradually I guess
    No thanks to leftist censorship

    @john Flynn Write it again and see if it goes through. I sent a link yesterday thinking it wouldn’t pass but happily it did.
