Thailand records 4 new COVID-19 infections

People stand in line to enter the Siam Paragon shopping mall as it reopened after restrictions to halt the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus were lifted in Bangkok on May 17, 2020.

After none having been reported yesterday, there are 4 new COVID-19 infections in Thailand today, all in state quarantine after their return from abroad.


CCSA spokesman Dr. Taweesin Visanuyothin said that all 4 are asymptomatic, had come from India and are currently in isolation in Thailand’s eastern province of Chon Buri.

One case is a 39-year old Thai woman domestic worker.  She arrived in Thailand on June 4th and entered state quarantine.  Five days later she tested positive for COVID-19.


Two cases are Thai workers and the fourth is a masseuse.  They all arrived from India on June 5th and tested positive for the contagion while in state quarantine.

Thailand’s cumulative infections, to date, are 3,129 and 2,987 have recovered, with 84 others still in hospital.  The country’s death toll remains unchanged at 58.


9 out of 186 Thai citizens, who arrived on two flights from Taiwan yesterday evening at Suvarnabhumi international airport, had fevers and were immediately sent to hospital for monitoring, while the rest were taken to quarantine facilities in Chon Buri province.

6 Taiwanese, who traveled on the same aircraft, were also placed in state quarantine for 14 days, as mandated for all in-bound travelers.
