The 50 new local infections did not include one Phuket Sandbox arrival testing positive for COVID-19.

As such, the 50 new cases bring the total number of new local infections on the island in the past seven days to 192, as follows:

The current total of 1,073 infected in Phuket since Apr 3 does not include eight people infected with COVID-19 in other provinces and four returning from other countries and testing positive.

The current Phuket tally also does not include 18 COVID patients brought back to Phuket under the “Bring Phuket people home” policy, or the 30 Phuket Sandbox arrivals who have tested positive for the virus after landing on the island since the Sandbox scheme began on July 1.
