Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin, spokesman for the Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA), said on Thursday (September 3) that one prisoner may have tested positive for Covid-19.

He added that the test detected genetic material of the virus, which means the man had picked up the infection from someone else.

The Public Health Ministry and Department of Disease Control are expected to make an announcement at 6pm.

The suspected Covid-19 case is a new inmate who was transferred to the Central Special Correctional Institute on August 26. Though asymptomatic, he tested positive on Wednesday.

The 30 other prisoners in the institute have tested negative, while the suspect has been isolated for treatment.
