The PPHO report also marked eight new local infections, bringing the total number of people infected in Phuket since Apr 3 to 797.
All Phuket Sandbox arrivals who test positive after landing in Phuket are not included in the total number of infections on the island, despite testing negative immediately after landing at the airport but testing positive after their first week on the island.
The 797 also does not include six people infected outside Phuket but brought to the island for treatment, or two foreigners who have been recorded as being infected outside the country.
Of the 797 cases recognised since Apr 3, 730 have been released from hospital care while 76 patients remain under medical care and supervision.
