The Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) announced 249 new coronavirus cases nationwide while 224 of them were domestic infections in the past 24 hours, according to CCSA spokesman Taweesin Visanuyothin this morning, January 11th.
The domestic cases were confirmed in Samut Sakhon 37, Bangkok 36, Nonthaburi 31, Ang Thong 19, Chonburi 8, Ayutthaya 2, Chanthaburi 2, Nakhon Sawan 1, Pathum Thani 1, Chiang Mai 1, and Kanchanaburi 1.
About 48 more cases of both Thai and migrant workers were found during provincial proactive screening, particularly in Samut Sakhon 43, Nonthaburi 4, and Bangkok 1. They are now in quarantined areas with no public exposure and most of them are asymptomatic, according to the spokesman.
This makes the number of cumulative Covid-19 infections in Thailand reach 10,547 cases since the major first outbreak in 2020.
Thai people are being reminded to wear face masks, strictly perform social distancing and other health measures issued by the Public Health Ministry, and download ‘Thai Chana’ and ‘Moh Chana’ applications to potentially trace Covid-19 infection.
The Pattaya News notes numbers the CCSA announce for places like Chonburi differ to Chonburi counts due to different cutoff times on reporting. The Chonburi numbers tend to be more recent which is why we use those for our official reports. Chonburi reported twenty cases directly today, almost all in Si Racha.
Meanwhile, the Samut Prakan governor has recently ordered the highest and strictest control measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19, under the regulations of the CCSA.
Similar to the strictest Covid-19 measure in Chonburi, those who wish to travel in and out of the areas must provide a travel authorization document from the provincial office. Health checkpoints are required to be installed in the transport routes, with monitoring by a number of officers in the police department, health department, and related agencies in the area.
