1 New Imported Coronavirus Case as Thailand Prepares More Easing

Thailand heads into the fourth phase of its economic reopening having recorded no locally transmitted cases of the coronavirus for 20 days.

The government’s Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration on Sunday reported one new case but, as has been the case for 20 days, it was someone already in quarantine.

The returnee arrived back from the United States, which is seeing a spike in cases around the country that still is in the first wave of its epidemic.

As of June 14, the total number of confirmed cases in Thailand stood at 3,135 – 2,444 domestic cases and 198 imported – 90 are under treatment, 2,987 have recovered and been discharged, and there have been 58 deaths.

Early Sunday marked the end of the national curfew in Thailand and, on Monday, a new round of business openings will take place as Thailand slowly emerges from its coronavirus lockdown.
