The number of Covid-19 cases in Samut Sakhon province rose to over 4,000 cases on Saturday after the Provincial Health Office conducted proactive screening in factories.

As of 5pm, the number of patients increased by 335 to 4,359 -- 989 Thais and 3,370 migrant workers. Of the total, 636 Thais and 316 migrant workers were hospitalised.

Separately, the provincial agencies opened a fourth field hospital at Nadi subdistrict Municipality in Muang Samut Sakhon district which can treat 350 patients.

"As most patients at the first field hospital in the province's Central Shrimp Market had been discharged, we would undertake a cleaning operation before reopening the market at the end of January," the provincial officials said.
