Chulalongkorn University’s virology centre conducted genetic tests on the samples collected from Covid-19 cases in Bang Khae and Thong Lor and found the British strain of the virus.

Samples collected from entertainment venues in the Thong Lor area carried the British strain, which spreads 1.7 times faster than the normal strain and the viral load in the patient is far higher.
