Thailand discovered a total of 4,059 daily Covid-19 infections with 35 additional deaths in the past 24 hours, CCSA spokesperson Taweesilp Visanuyothin reported this morning, June 22nd.
The fatalities were 25 men and 10 women from Bangkok (15), Samut Sakhon (6), Samut Prakan (5), Chachoengsao (2), Chonburi (1), Nonthaburi (1), Nakhon Sri Thammarat (1), Ayutthaya (1), Phuket (1), Suphanburi (1), and Udon Thani (1). The age range was between 28 and 94 years old.
Most of them were reported with underlying health conditions, including hypertension, diabetes, lung disease, hyperlipidemia, kidney disease, heart disease, strokes, obesity, cancer, and liver disease. One of the fatalities was a bedridden patient. Four of them did not reportedly have any health conditions.
Of the new cases, 2,257 were found in hospitals and medical services (which includes contact tracing cases), 1,706 were from a proactive approach at previously reported clusters, 75 were from prisons, and the remaining 21 were imported cases.
Regarding the non-prison local infections, the highest numbers of patients were reported in Bangkok with 1,154, followed by Samut Prakan with 696, Chonburi with 335 (driven by two large clusters at a market and migrant worker dormitories), Songkhla with 293, Samut Sakhon with 250, and Pathum Thani with 211.
A major cluster at a madrasa, an Islamic boarding school, in the southern province of Yala, has now led to 402 infections in 12 provinces, namely 111 in Narathiwas, 102 in Yala, 46 in Satun, 46 in Pattani, 36 in Songkhla, 18 in Krabi, 13 in Pattalung, 10 in Nakhon Si Thammarat, 9 in Surat Thani, 5 in Phang Nga, 3 in Trung, and 3 in Phuket.
The madrasa was ordered to close last week. Yala’s provincial public health officials are now conducting a proactive approach in the area. Students, worshippers, and their families, including those who came into contact with them, are required to report and seek a Covid-19 test to the district’s health office or nearby hospitals. They may violate the Communicable Diseases Act if they failed to do so.
