The majority of the new infections are connected to a previous cluster of cases from Lumpini boxing stadium, ministry spokesman Taweesin Wisanuyothin told a news conference.

Seven are in serious condition, he said, while one has already recovered.

“Most of the new cases were found in Bangkok and were among young people who continue to have social activities, which can lead to more infections,” Dr Taweesin said, urging the public to stay home.

Infections in Thailand have jumped this month, prompting the government to close shopping malls, restaurants and other gathering venues to stop the pandemic. The nation’s capital imposed a partial shutdown from today. (See story here).

There has been one death linked to the virus in Thailand so far.

Still waiting for Jor12, Dek, Pascale etc, to say something, condemned so many of us, now they sit silent.

@ K. So you calling 1 linked death a lie. How you call figures in other countries like : Germany  22ooo cases/ 84 death or Austria 3000 cases /8 death ? A lot of blabla again.

Now it goes fast. Tomorrow 1000 cases. A few more days, 2000 over. That it how it goes, as seen in other countries ( China, S-Korea, Italia, Spain.). Hope thai government can get rid of that..'this is the way we are doing it'...soft thinking. It will not work.  Only 1 death linked? I dare to say that is a 'thai lie'. Who believes it may put up his finger.
