Thailand Marks 8 Weeks Without Local Case of Covid-19

8 Weeks No Coronavirus Covid-19 Cases Thailand

Thailand on Monday marked eight weeks and more than four coronavirus incubation cycles without a locally transmitted case of Covid-19.

Dr. Taweesin Wissanuyothin, spokesman for the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration, reported one new case Monday: a 52-year-old electrician in state quarantine after returning from Singapore. He arrived in Thailand on July 6 and was asymptomatic. 

Total cases in Thailand now stand at 3,250, with 351 of those found in quarantine. There has been local case reported in 56 days.

Total recovered patients stand at 3,096. The death toll remained at 58 and 96 Covid-19 patients are still under treatment.

The consecutive-day streak continued despite last week’s health scares in Rayong and Bangkok. While almost 20 are still under quarantine for possible exposure to the virus carried by an Egyptian airman in Rayong and a diplomat at his Sukhumvit condo, no one has tested positive yet.

While the Egyptians traveled a mere four blocks and were in a shopping mall for only four others, mass panic prompted 6,501 people to get coronavirus tested in Rayong.

As expected by those who had not lost their minds, results for the all of the 6,287 tests processed by Monday came back negative. Likewise, the government has closed the case of a Sudanese diplomat in Bangkok, saying all 364 people in the Condo One X tested negative.
