Thailand on Wednesday reported five new imported cases of Covid-19, raising the total cases in the country to 3,232.
Dr. Panprapa Yongtrakul, spokeswoman for the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration, said the new infections were all Thai quarantined returnees.
They comprised a woman from the U.S. who is in state quarantine in Bangkok. She lost her sense of smell and had a sore throat and phlegm.
Two others were men who returned from Singapore. They tested positive during the screening at the disease-control checkpoint of Suvarnabhumi Airport. They were sent to a hospital in Sumut Prakan for treatment.
Twenty-two of the 110 passengers aboard their repatriation flight were found to have fevers when they arrived at Suvarnabhumi International Airport before 5 p.m. on Monday. The 22 were hospitalized while the remainder of the 105 Thais and five foreigners were sent to state quarantine (73) or “alternative quarantine” (15).
The two others were a man and a woman, who returned from the UAE on July 2 and were quarantined in Chonburi Province. They were asymptomatic, but tested positive to the virus on July 23.
The total recovered cases were recorded at 3,092 and 82 patients are being treated at hospitals. The death toll remains at 58.
