New COVID-19 infections rise to 15,376 with 87 deaths on Monday

Thailand reported this morning a daily record of 15,376 new cases of COVID-19, bringing the total number of infections in the country to more than half a million.

The nation’s Ministry of Public Health also announced 87 new deaths related to the virus, bringing the death toll to 4,146.

Dr Chakkarat Pittayawong-anont, director of the epidemiology division at the Department of Disease Control (DDC), said Thailand will detect more COVID-19 cases in the provinces, including family transmission and those returning home for care and treatment.

However, he explained that the situation in Bangkok is different from that of the surrounding provinces. According to the DDC, the volume of COVID-19 infections in the capital could decrease in the next four to six weeks.

He added that despite an increase in cases, the vaccination rate is relatively high, at 50 percent.
