The PPHO report noted that the 11 new local infections brought the total number of people infected in Phuket since Apr 3 to 807.

The report marked no new Sandbox tourists confirmed as infected with COVID-19, leaving the total number of Sandbox tourists confirmed infected after landing on the island at 10.

All Phuket Sandbox arrivals who test positive after landing in Phuket are not included in the total number of infections on the island (now 807), despite testing negative immediately after landing at the airport but testing positive after their first week on the island.

The 807 also does not include six people infected outside Phuket but brought to the island for treatment, or three foreigners who have been recorded as being infected outside the country.
