PM's Office Minister Anucha Nakasai and state officials on Saturday visited Nakhon Pathom province to inspect the readiness of restaurant and prawn farmers to prevent a Covid-19 outbreak.

They also visited a restaurant where they ate seafood for lunch in front of the press to demonstrate that Thai seafood is safe.

The latest outbreak reportedly began at the Central prawn market in Samut Sakhon province, stoking fears that seafood could be contaminated by the virus.

The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration on Saturday revealed 110 cases in the past 24 hours, including 94 domestic cases and 16 in state quarantine. Of the 94 cases, 64 were Thai nationals while 30 were migrant workers living in the country.

 

Meanwhile, Nakhon Pathom reported 13 new cases of Covid-19 as of 7am on Saturday, raising the total number of patients to 30 in the latest outbreak. All of them are being treated in hospitals.
