Thailand reaches 1,045 COVID-19 infections

Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) on Thursday reported a total of 1,045 coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in Thailand. There are 111 new confirmed cases as of Thursday morning. 

It is the fifth straight day that the total number of cases rose by 100 or more patients.

Dr Anupong Suchariyakul, a specialist at the Disease Control Department, said of the accumulative 1,045 patients, 953 were at hospitals, including four severely ill people, while 88 people had recovered and were already discharged from hospitals.

Dr Anupong stressed that the local outbreak soared due to transmission from visitors to entertainment places, boxing stadiums and religious ceremonies in Malaysia.

He encouraged these people to report for examination so that health officials can effectively control the disease.
