Cherdkiat said the Thai embassy had been informed about a Thai student suffering from a cough and fatigue about three weeks ago, and learned that the student had a lung infection.
The student was then sent to a state quarantine site, but succumbed to the infection on Tuesday. The embassy has spoken to the student’s family, who agreed to have the student buried in a graveyard in Cairo. The deceased was buried yesterday.
Cherdkiat said this 26-year-old student was the first Thai national to have died from Covid-19 in Egypt, but did not reveal the student’s name or gender.
