The new numbers brought the total number of cases in Thailand to 3,042 and deaths to 57 since the outbreak began in January, said Taweesilp Visanuyothin, a spokesman for the COVID-19 Administration Centre.

More than 96% of the patients, or 2,928 people, have recovered, he said. Government statistics showed an additional seven people were discharged over the past 24 hours, leaving 57 hospitalised.

The spokesman said the latest fatality was a woman, 68, who died in Chumphon province yesterday. She had been in contact with a previous patient before developing symptoms and had also suffered from diabetes, kidney failure and high blood pressure, he added.

One of the new confirmed cases was a Chinese citizen, the wife of an Italian who had been infected with the virus. Their family of five entered Phuket on March 9 and remained on the island due to the lockdown, Dr Taweesilp said.

The other new patient was a female masseuse who returned to Thailand from Russia on Wednesday and is under state quarantine in Chon Buri province.

Doctors found the two new patients were infected with the virus yesterday.
