The number of Covid-19 patients in the country increased to 2,258, with 38 new cases confirmed over a 24-hour period, Taweesin Visanuyothin, spokesman for the government’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, said today (April 7).

The cases can be divided into three groups:

The first group of 17 had close contact with others previously confirmed as infected.

The second comprised 16 people, three of whom had just returned from abroad, seven (most from Phuket) who worked in crowded areas or close to foreigners, three who visited crowded areas, and three medical staff.

The third group of five are being investigated for the source of infection.

Meanwhile, 31 people have recovered and returned home.

A 54-year-old man without any chronic disease and who had attended some parties in entertainment venues died of respiratory failure yesterday.

Of the 2,258 confirmed cases, 1,408 are under treatment, with 23 in a critical condition, 824 have recovered and been discharged, and 27 people have died.

Globally, there are more than 1.3 million confirmed Covid-19 cases and around 74,000 deaths.
