Today is the fourth consecutive day that Phuket has officially recorded zero cases since the wife of an Italian engineer staying in Cherng Talaya was reported as positive for the virus on Monday.

Although the Italian engineer, who was reported as COVID-positive last Sunday, and his wife are the most recent cases added to island’s total, Phuket Governor Phakaphong on Wednesday announced that those two cases were being treated as inconclusive and awaiting confirmation by tests on samples being conducted in Bangkok.

Meanwhile, the Phuket office of the Public Relations Department of Thailand (PR Phuket) announced through a post on its official Facebook page today that so far 11,136 people in Phuket had been classified as at risk of contracting COVID-19 since the outbreak began, an increase of 84 on the 11,052 reported yesterday.

Of those, 10,909 were found not infected with the virus.

So far three people in Phuket have died as a direct result of being infected with COVID-19, including an Australian hotel manager from Khao Lak whose family lived in Nai Harn.
