A total of 163 patients remain hospitalized, 2,798 have recovered and returned home, and 56 died from complications related to the disease, according to Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health.
Thailand enforced a national curfew on April 3. All nationals except medics, emergency workers and personnel delivering medical supplies and patients, have been urged to stay at home.
The national coronavirus response authority decided to extend the state of emergency for another month until May 31 as the curfew and other travel restrictions have slowed the spread of the disease.
Open-air markets, sports grounds, and other public venues have been allowed starting May 3.
