A total of 1,600 people received their first injection of the Sinovac vaccine at the Indoor Sports Stadium at Saphan Hin yesterday (May 9), while the campaign continues to call for people to register to be vaccinated through local channels for each major subdistrict in Phuket.

According to the Phuket Public Health Office (PPHO) the 10 new COVID-19 cases bring the total number of people confirmed as infected in Phuket since Apr 3 to 530.

The number of people from other provinces brought to Phuket to be treated for symptoms of COVID-19 stays at six.

Meanwhile, the rapid antigen testing of people arriving to enter the province continues, with medical officers yesterdaัƒ testing 334 people at the airport, 1,977 people at the Phuket Gateway and 705 people at the Phuket Check Point at Tha Chatchai. All 3,016 rapid tests gave negative results.

In total, medical officers at the entry points to Phuket have tested 51,920 people since the rapid-testing campaign began on Apr 22. During this period officials recorded 23 positive results, with five of them later determined to be ‘false positives’.

As confirmed by Governor Narong Wonciew last week, from May 15 there will no longer be any rapid antigen tests for people arriving on the island from ‘red zone’ provinces.
