Thailand reported 2,961 domestic cases of Covid-19 with 2 confirmed cases at prisons as well as 149 imported cases, marking a total of 3,112 daily infections, with 12 additional deaths in the past 24 hours.

This makes a total of 2,200,695 cases of Covid-19 since the start of this recent round of infections in early April in Thailand.

Additionally, 2,147,304 people in total have now been released from medical care and fully recovered since this current wave began. 2,921 people were released yesterday. The chart below shows the total cases and recoveries since the original outbreak last year.

Among 2,961 local new domestic cases, excluding the cases in the prisons, the highest number of infections listed by provinces was discovered in Chonburi with 422, Bangkok with 366, Ubon Ratchathani with 304, Nakhon Si Thammarat with 128, and Khon Kaen with 100. This is the first time Chonburi has taken the top spot, driven by a surging number of infections in Banglamung/Pattaya, many of which appear to be the Omicron variant.

The fatalities were 6 men and 6 women (All Thais) with an average age between 41 to 87. All had prior health issues or were elderly, at 100% combined.

Two of them reportedly had chronic health problems. Ten of them were aged more than 60.

Thailand has a total of 104,472,167 vaccines given, with 5,993 first jabs, 9,894-second doses, and 12,111 third doses given yesterday.
