The Foreign Affairs said South Korea likely will donate Covid-19 vaccines to Thailand at the end of September.

Ministry spokesperson Tanee Sangrat said Foreign Minister Don Pramudwinai discussed collaboration on vaccines with South Korean Foreign Minister Chung Eui-yong during his visit to Thailand last week, adding that this was the first visit by Chung since his appointment as foreign minister.

The South Korean minister said his country could provide vaccines to Thailand at the end of September, after fully vaccinating 70 percent of its population.

South Korea has reported an average 1,763 new Covid-19 cases in the past seven days. Since the start of the pandemic, it has seen 249,000 cases and 2,279 deaths.
