The PPHO report, marked as accurate as of 8pm last night, but posted online at 11:57pm, 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 118. After 55 COVID deaths in September, officials have marked 43 deaths so far this month.

Meanwhile, the 59 new local infections bring the total number of new local infections reported on the island in the past seven days to 518, as follows:

  • Oct 27 - 75 new cases
  • Oct 28 - 68 new cases
  • Oct 29 - 61 new cases
  • Oct 30 - 59 new cases

The current total of 15,203 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 198 Phuket Sandbox arrivals who have tested positive for the virus after landing on the island since the Sandbox scheme began on July 1.

According to the PPHO COVID situation report for yesterday, 969 people were under medical care or supervision, eight more than the 961 reported the day before.

The report also marked 14,325 people in total being discharged from medical care for COVID infection since Apr 3 ‒ 54 more than the 14,271 reported yesterday.

The report did not confirm how many people who tested positive by ATKs were confirmed infected by RT-PCR tests or how many people had been released from ATK detention at ‘COVID-19 Care Centers’ and allowed to go home.

The PPHO daily COVID situation report also marked that Phuket currently has in total 5,410 beds available for COVID patients (-455 from yesterday).
