BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand confirmed 11 new coronavirus cases on Friday and no new deaths, taking the number of infections to 3,076.

 

The new cases were all patients who had arrived from Kuwait and were in quarantine, said Taweesin Wisanuyothin, a spokesman for the government's Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration.

 

The coronavirus has killed 57 people in Thailand since it was first detected in January.

...and so we slowly move to the new normal. Pattaya's beaches to reopen at the start of June and the lifting of the at the start of July, including a resumption of international travel. Face masks, frequent hand cleansing, social distancing and Thai Chana will all remain a part o four lives for the foreseeable future though. Let's hope nothing goes wrong between now and July 1st.

Zero Covid-19 risk in Thailand as long as you don't get near someone who came from somewhere outside of Thailand.

Yes dormitories are risky places in the best of times for contagious diseases , I've stayed in dormitories but only 4 beds and I sleep with a mask on.

Funny how they seem to fail to mention that rather pertinent detail.

Are they not in a Naval/ Army  base or quarantine hotel? So therefore kept away from the general population.

 

Are you sneaking into the Naval bases ? Nothing like a fellow in uniform.
