The district borders Myanmar. Yesterday Tak registered 103 new infections for the remote province.

The helicopter will ferry Karen villagers in Le Tong Ku village to the Mae Chan sub-district hospital.

It took soldiers about 8 hours to reach the village due to rough terrain and poor weather.

Soldiers are also carrying out testing and to take care of Covid patients and troops are working with medical workers from Umphang Hospital. The virus is reported to have spread to 4 other villagers.

• The CCSA will decide today if they will extend the current lockdown measures. The extension of the Red Zones, with the highest levels of restrictions and curfews, have been ramped up over the past month but have seen a steady rise in both new infections and deaths, both in the key battle grounds around the city and nearby provinces, and the other provinces as well.

Yesterday Dr. Thaveesilp Visanuyothin said that the operations centre and the Department of Disease Control predict that Covid infections and deaths will increase over the next month.

“Without lockdown measures in place, the number of daily infections is expected to reach 60,000-70,000, with more than 800 fatalities every day.”

He also announced that the CCSA will discuss whether to ease some restrictions, and to allow some essential businesses to reopen on the premises of department stores, as requested by the Thai Shopping Centre Association.

• Today’s anti-government protests in Bangkok may cause disruption to traffic, especially around Ratchaprasong and Lat Prao intersections where rally organisers have announced major rallies. The Metropolitan Police Bureau is preparing to face off with protesters warning them that large gatherings of people are not permitted under the emergency decree.

Violence has broken out at recent city protests where police claim a smaller, breakaway group of protesters have set fire to police vehicles and defaced public property.
