There was one case of Covid-19 infection over a 24-hour period, the government’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) reported on Friday (July 3), the 39th day without a domestic case.

 

The new patient is a 24-year-old woman who had returned from Bahrain on June 28 and tested positive in state quarantine in Chonburi province aftee having symptoms like coughing and diarrhoea, Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin, the CCSA spokesman, said.

 

Meanwhile seven patients recovered fully and returned home, reducing the number undergoing treatment in hospitals to 56.

 

As of July 3, the total number of confirmed cases in the country since the outbreak stood at 3,180 (2,444 domestic cases and 243 in state quarantine) -- 3,066 have recovered and been discharged, and there have been 58 deaths.

 

Globally, the total number of confirmed cases reached 10.9 million, up by 179,000 in Thursday, 5.9 million have recovered while deaths stood at 523,000.

 

Dr Taweesin also revealed the number of cases of hand, foot and mouth disease, and influenza, which is also a respiratory disease mostly found in children aged 0-4 years, had decreased dramatically due to people wearing face masks. Overall pneumonia cases also tended to decrease.

 

Dr Taweesin urges Thais living abroad who wanted to return home to hasten their decision so that the government agencies could book and prepare state quarantine facilities for them, especially as there is space available now.

 

Since April 3, 51,464 people have entered the 14-day compulsory quarantine, 42,038 had already returned home while 9,426 were still at the quarantine facilities.

testing numbers please

Don't you think, the way social media runs faster than the speed of light, we'd be aware of anyone who contracted it?

No. The person making the social media post would have to have access to the aggregate data for testing and Covid 19 deaths. So, unless someone at the top makes the post, we won't know anything. Family members of individuals who are sick or who die don't become magically aware of the data that we lack.

Then why hasn’t the ‘Internal lockdown’ been lifted 100% and Thai’s are free to move around and get on with their daily lives without any restrictions ?????

 

 

Could it be that the government know their Covid-19 figures are farcical with 99.3% of the Thai population remaining un-tested for Covid?

Happy for once to agree with Richard.

Currently in Oz  they have tested almost 10% of population. Sadly Victoria showing cluster ,~80  positive today

So why has England not included Thailand on the list of countries from which people are no longer required to quarantine on arrival?

I read earlier today that UK is opening up to a number of countries, including several countries in Asia, but that the complete list will be published later today. How do you know Thailand is not on that list?

Oh my bad.

That's very odd. As far as I'm aware of, the rest of Europe has also not included Thailand. Wonder why...
