The news came with the standard daily update of new infections on the island for today (June 2), posted online by the Official COVID-19 Information Center Phuket last night.

No details of the COVID victim’s death were provided.

The news follows Phuket officials marking the second death for the outbreak just yesterday, an 86-year-old Thai woman who had a hyperlipidemia and hypertension.

The first death attributed to COVID infection recorded since Apr 3 was that of a 71-year-old man who was already suffering from emphysema on May 11.

According to the PPHO report last night, Phuket officials marked six new infections for June 2, bringing the total number of people infected on the island since Apr 3 to 670, not including six people infected outside Phuket but brought to the island for treatment.

Are the 611 have been released from hospital under quarantine? The number I'd like to see is how many infected people are walking around each sub district

A clearer indication of the numbers would be if the number of new cases was in brackets after the number for each sub-district. Not difficult to update when the template is in place.
