3,759 new Covid-19 infections and 34 coronavirus-related deaths were reported today by the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration. Since April 1, the CCSA has reported a total of 116,113 Covid-19 cases. There are now 46,150 active cases in Thailand.

Out of the new cases, 1,294 infections were found in Thai prisons. Over the past month, 14 correctional facilities have reported a total of more than 20,000 Covid-19 cases. So far, 6 inmates who contracted Covid-19 have died.

Bangkok remains the epicentre of infections with 973 new cases reported today. Many clusters reported in crowded places such as slum neighbourhoods and settlements, construction camps and markets. Health officials are rolling out active testing in high risk areas to detect and contain the virus.

“Infections are stable, but increasing,” according to Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Natapanu Nopakun, who gives the CCSA report in English. He says 59 out of the 77 provinces in Thailand have reported zero to 10 Covid-19 cases.

Since the start of the pandemic, the CCSA has reported a total of 144,976 Covid-19 cases and 954 coronavirus-related deaths.
