Thailand Logs 3 New Covid Cases, No Deaths Monday

22 Jun, 2020

The government reported three new coronavirus cases and no new deaths on Monday, the 28th consecutive day with no confirmed local transmissions of Covid-19 and taking the total number of infections in Thailand to 3,151 with 58 deaths since January.

An additional four people recovered from the disease over the past 24 hours, leaving 71 in hospitals.

The three new cases were Thai nationals returning from India and were detected in state quarantine, said spokesman for the government's Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, Taweesilp Visanuyothin.

Dr Taweesilp said the 28-day milestone for local transmissions was important because four weeks is thought to be the maximum period of time the virus can live in a person without showing symptoms.

However, he said the country cannot lower its guard, because a single imported case -- of which there were three on Monday -- could trigger a local outbreak.

The spokesman also said the administration was coordinating with Myanmar authorities regarding 23 coronavirus cases found among migrants deported from Thailand.
