The PPHO report, marked as accurate as of 8pm last night, but posted online at 12:31am today, reported three new infections among Sandbox tourist arrivals but no new infections among non-Sandbox arrivals from abroad.

The report also marked no new deaths attributed to COVID-19, leaving the total number of deaths in Phuket attributed to COVID-19 since Apr 3 at 121. After 55 COVID deaths in September, officials marked 44 deaths in total for the month of October.

Meanwhile, the 50 new local infections bring the total number of new local infections reported on the island in the past seven days to 410, as follows:

  • Oct 28 - 68 new cases

  • Oct 31 - 62 new cases
  • Nov 1 - 53 new cases
  • Nov 2 - 57 new cases
  • Nov 3 - 50 new cases

The current total of 15,426 people infected in Phuket since Apr 3 does not include 10 infected with COVID-19 in other provinces and 35 returning from other countries and testing positive.

The current Phuket tally also does not include 42 COVID patients brought back to Phuket under the “Bring Phuket people home” policy, or the 205 Phuket Sandbox arrivals who have tested positive for the virus after landing on the island since the Sandbox scheme began on July 1.
