Another 24 provinces remain on the list because they contain areas where rabies is still suspected.

Originally, zones in 38 provinces were announced in January, with the observation period expiring on Tuesday (Mar 20).

DLD Deputy Director-General Jeerasak Pipattanapongsophon said that, as of yesterday (Mar 21), 14 provinces had been removed from the list.

The provinces whose status has returned to normal are Bangkok, Ayutthaya, Chantaburi, Chonburi, Buriram, Surin, Amnatcharoen, Nakhon Phanom, Mahasarakam, Roi Et, Loei, Nongkhai, Krabi and Phattalung.

Mr Jeerasak said that a DLD survey estimates that there are about 10 million cats and dogs in Thailand. The DLD aims to vaccinate 8.24 million of them.

Between October last year and this week, 2,720,822 dogs and cats have been vaccinated.

He said that by May this year, the remaining 5.52 million animals are expected to be vaccinated.
