Thailand reported 138 domestic infections among 166 new Covid-19 Coronavirus daily cases in the past 24 hours, the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration announced this morning, February 14th.
A total of 89 out of 138 domestic cases were discovered in Pathum Thani with 67, Samut Sakhon with 11, Tak with 7, Rayong with 3, and Nonthaburi with 1 during proactive case findings in major factories and local communities, particularly in migrant workers’ dormitories. All of them are now at provincial state quarantine and field hospitals under the supervision of public health authorities.
Rayong authorities announced that the three domestic infections in the province are office workers who were colleagues and all connected to an earlier confirmed case on February 11th. The three went camping together which led to them contracting the virus. All of them are asymptomatic and are being treated at Rayong hospital and Memorial Hospital Sirindhorn, according to Rayong provincial health office. Their close contacts are also being identified and quarantined but officials said they had limited broader contact and restricted timelines as most of their work in their company was done at home. Officials have asked residents not to lower their guard and continue to mask, social distance, and take other precautions but do not believe the new cases are a reason for people to panic.
The other 49 infections were hospital/contact tracing cases that were discovered in Samut Sakhon with 33, Bangkok with 11, Saraburi with 2, Nakhon Pathom with 1, Samut Prakan with 1, and Nakhon Ratchasima with 1. All of the patients are now isolated at local hospitals for treatment.
As of today, 931 people fully recovered in the past 24 hours and have been released from field hospitals and quarantine centers. Thailand has now reached a total of 24,571 cases with 22,111 recoveries and a total of 80 deaths since the start of the pandemic.
