The number of those who will become infected with Covid-19 could soon escalate to thousands if people don’t strictly follow the social-distancing measure, a top government official warned today (March 23).

The Ministry of Public Health on Sunday announced 188 new cases of the virus, officially known as Covid-19, bringing the total number of infections in Thailand to 599.

Public Health Ministry deputy permanent secretary Supakit Sirilak showed a graph representing the tendency of Covid-19 infections and said Thailand is already in the “golden period” of infections since the country now has 721 cases.

Covid-19 patients in Thailand increased by 122 on Monday (March 23), taking the total to more than 700.

“When the number of those infected reaches 100, the infection rate will escalate quickly, we will face the same situation as Europe, which has been hit by thousands of infections within a short period of time if we don’t follow the measure very strictly.”
