covid 19 thailand update

Thailand has reported no new infections or fatalities today, for the first time since the country recorded its first COVID-19 case four months ago.

There were no new cases of Covid-19 over a 24-hour period, or any deaths, Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin, spokesman of the government’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, said on Wednesday, May 13.

Since May 3, the number of new Covid-19 cases reported daily had been in single figures,  except for May 4th, when new infections jumped to 18, all among illegal immigrants at a detention centre in the southern province of Songkhla.

Dr Taweesin cautioned that no fresh cases did not mean Thailand had completely rid itself of the virus. People should not become complacent as there might be infected people who have shown no symptoms yet.

Cumulative infections, to date, remain at 3,017 while recoveries have increased by 46 to 2,844 today.  Over the previous 24 hours, 46 more patients have recovered, raising the total recovery cases to 2,844, while 117 patients remained at hospitals.

50 provinces have reported zero new infections for the past 28 days or more, while new infections have been reported in the other provinces in the same period.
