The Department of Disease Control told the press that accumulated cases of Covid-19 in Thailand today (February 19) stayed at 35, the same as yesterday's.

“The number of confirmed infected patients currently under care stands at 18, while 17 have fully recovered and discharged,” said department director Dr Sopon Iamsirithaworn. “Thailand is among countries with highest percentage of infected persons who have fully recovered and returned home”.

Out of the 18 still in hospitals, Sophon said, two are in serious but stable condition. “Their fever has gone down but the patients remain under intensive care around the clock,” he added.

As of Wednesday (February 19), Thailand had 957 suspected cases with 100 still being monitored while 857 were discharged. Most of those discharged were diagnosed with seasonal flu and not the Covid-19 pneumonia.

“Of the 100, 45 per cent are Thais, 45 Chinese and 10 per cent from other countries,” he said, adding that: "most Thais under monitoring had made contact with tourists from high-risk areas”.
