Six new confirmed COVID-19 cases have been reported today, with zero new deaths. The authorities are still concerned with the relaxation of lockdown measures leading to an increase of population movements, which may spark a resurgence of cases. The general public is asked always to wear a face mask, and to fully cooperate with disease control measures.
The Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin in a daily briefing today announced the six new cases of confirmed COVID-19 infection, raising the cumulative number to 2,966.
Meantime, 13 more patients have recovered and been discharged from hospitals, raising the total number of recoveries to 2,732. There are now 180 active cases at the hospital, and no new deaths in the past day.
Among the six new patients, one in Phuket and one in Bangkok were in close contact with confirmed patients. Two patients have been discovered from active case contacts in Choeng Thale subdistrict of Phuket. Two more patients are Bangkok residents returned from abroad, one from India and one from Japan, diagnosed during arrival procedures.
Most of the patients are of working age, at 39 years old. The CCSA is urging the local authorities to monitor the increase in inter-provincial travel, as the country begins to ease lockdown measures.
