As such, the total number of people in Phuket officially recognised as infected with the virus since the outbreak began stands at 227.

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 10,994 people in Phuket had been classified as at risk of contracting COVID-19 since the outbreak began, an increase of 67 on the 10,927 reported yesterday.

Of those, 10,767 were found not infected with the virus.

The PR Phuket report also noted 6,959 people had so far been classified as Persons Under Investigation.


PR Phuket today reported that 42 people remained in hospital, down eight from yesterday. The 42 comprised seven people already confirmed as infected, and 35 people still waiting for test results, down six from the 41 reported yesterday.

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.

The Phuket Provincial Health Office, which serves as the Phuket Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) Incident Command Center, in its report today maintained its standard call for all people, business service providers and the general public, to observe the “new normal” health regulations in effect to help prevent the spread of the virus, especially now that many businesses have been allowed to reopen.

You are correct about KLM and LUFTHANSA... prices on their websites are quite reasonable as well. 15-20K THB per passenger... Thats OK.

That is an option... thanks Pascale... I will look into that

@LALALA    Lufthansa,KLM or Qatar flying from Bangkok. Friends of mine drove to Surat and took a flight to Bangkok. It isn't impossible to leave Thailand.

OK...despite the fact that zero cases we have on Phuket there are 9 overall imported in Thailand... means it not looks like international flights will not be available soon... maybe Airlines should offer flights out of LOS only.. I am ready to pay the ticket price for in- AND outbound though.
