Thailand’s health department has reported 13 new coronavirus (Covid-19) cases, raising the total to 2,839, and one more death. Thailand’s accumulated death toll now stands at 50.
The tally of new cases is two lower than the 15 recorded yesterday. It is the lowest since March 14, and marks the fifth consecutive day of declines. Because of limited testing, however, the actual number of infections is believed to be higher.
Dr Taweesilp Visanuyothin, spokesman of the Health Department said the lower number of new cases is good news for the Covid-19 situation in the country. However people must continue to take precautions for their own protection.
“If we lower our guard even a bit, the number of infection cases can soar to five digits like in some countries,” he said. He also said a further 78 people were on Thursday reported to have recovered, raising the total to 2,430.
