Most of the infections were contracted either from close contacts at home, from visiting entertainment venues or red-zone provinces, and at large gatherings, said the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA).
The BMA highlighted the 445th case, a female businesswoman, who mostly stayed home and ordered food via delivery applications. However, she went out with a friend on January 3 to grab dinner. Her friend sneezed at her while not wearing a mask. After learning on January 6 that her friend had contracted the virus, she visited hospital for a test and was confirmed infected with Covid-19 on the morning of January 8.
