Dr Taweesilp Visanuyothin, spokesman for the government’s Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration, said 13 more patients have recovered and been discharged, raising the total number of recovered cases to 2,732. A total of 180 patients remained in hospitals.

Nine of the country’s 77 provinces have never reported any cases, and 39 provinces have not reported any cases for 28 days or more.

The six new infections brought the total confirmed cases in 68 provinces across the country to 2,966. Fatalities remained unchanged at 54, said Dr Taweesilp.

Two of the new cases were those who had been in close contact with previous COVID-19 cases. Two others in Phuket were identified during active case finding and the other two were returnees from India and Japan in state quarantine, he added.
