Thai media 77kaoded reported that four more people have tested positive for coronavirus in Hua Hin bringing the number of cases in the town to six. 

 

Among the latest cases were a British person back from their homeland. They described the person as a tourist who lives in Hua Hin. They are being treated at a private hospital. 

 

The second case was a Thai resident of Hua Hin back from the UK. 

 

The third and fourth were Thai Hua Hin residents who had arrived from Poipet, Cambodia. 

 

The three Thais are in Hua Hin Hospital.

 

All four are on the way to recovery. 

 

Hua Hin Hospital director Dr Niran Jantrakul announced Sunday a series of new measures to combat the spread of the virus. 

 

The Thai traditional massage clinic at the hospital will be shut from today. 

 

Strict screening and distancing will be in place for those using the hospital. 

 

All visiting of sick patients has been cancelled. People should use video to keep in touch with loved ones being treated at the hospital. 

 

People with non-urgent appointments have been urged to cancel to restrict numbers. 

 

Pharmacy hours are being extended to help ensure people stay sufficiently apart while visiting the hospital.

 

The total number of people with or who have had coronavirus in Hua Hin is 6. Two have recovered. 

 

Some 66 cases are under observation and 26 are in quarantine.
