Thailand discovered 549 domestic infections out of 559 new Covid-19 Coronavirus daily cases with one additional death in the past 24 hours, CCSA spokesperson Taweesilp Visanuyothin announced this morning, April 9th.
Thailand’s 96 Covid-19 death was a 60-year-old Thai man from Narathiwat. He was reportedly in close contact with an infected patient. He was having suspicious symptoms of coughing and panting before being admitted to a local hospital. He tested for the Covid-19 test and proved positive on April 1st. However, his condition became worse and he was pronounced dead on April 8th.
The domestic infections were categorized into four major walk-in/hospital cases. The majority of 214 infections were connected to the cluster from entertainment venues in Bangkok that were found in Bangkok (85), Samut Prakan (31), Prachuap Khiri Khan (28), Chonburi (7), Sa Kaeo (6), Chiang Mai (5), Phetchaburi (3), Pathum Thani (3), Samut Sakhon (3), Rayong (3), Chanthaburi (3), Chachoengsao (2), Phetchabun (2), Nonthaburi (2), Chiang Rai (2), Lampang (1), Nan (1), Phitsanulok (1), Lop Buri (1), Ratchaburi (1), Kanchanaburi (1), Trat (1), and Samut Songkram (1).
The other 31 infections were close contacts of infected patients connected to the cluster that were reported in Chonburi (8), Sa Kaeo (5), Samut Prakan (5), Nakhon Ratchasima (4), Nonthaburi (3), Pathum Thani (1), Ratchaburi (1), Prachuap Khiri Khan (1), Chanthaburi (1), Phuket (1), and Samut Sakhon (1).
The third group of 124 local cases was hospital cases, including contact tracing, that were connected to the cluster from entertainment venues. The infections were discovered in Buriram (8), Chonburi (7), Samut Sakhon (5), Songkhla (5), Samut Prakan (4), Chumphon (4), Udon Thani (4), Rayong (3), Surat Thani (3), Sa Kaeo (2), Chaiyaphom (2), Nakhon Ratchasima (2), Lop Buri (2), Ratchaburi (2), Nakhon Pratom (1), Khon Kaen (1), Phetchaburi (1), and Saraburi (1).
The remaining 32 hospital infections were under disease investigation and were reported in Bangkok (9), Chonburi (7), Samut Prakan (6), Sa Kaeo (3), Chiang Mai (1), Pathum Thani (1), Sara Buri (1), Chanthaburi (1), Chumphon (1), Phuket (1), and Song Khla (1).
A large number of 148 cases were reported during proactive case finding in local communities, particularly in local markets, factories, dormitories, and entertainment venues in Bangkok (130), Chonburi (17), and Prachuap Khiri Khan (1).
The walk-in/hospital cases were mostly reported at private hospitals nationwide that have been currently facing issues of the lack of facilities and beds due to the rocketing number of infected patients found in the past 24 hours. Thailand requires anyone with Covid-19, including asymptomatic patients, to stay at a hospital or quarantine facility and does not allow self-isolation or home quarantine. Therefore, the Prime Minister along with related agencies will also discuss this issue at today’s CCSA meeting as well.
Additionally, the CCSA spokesperson also reannounced the order of the closure of entertainment venues, such as bars and nightclubs, starting tomorrow, April 10th, for fourteen days. This would take the closure through at least April 23rd, 2021.
