Bangkok (People's Daily) - Thailand on Sunday confirmed 4 new coronavirus cases, bringing the total to 3,081 since the virus was first reported in the kingdom in January. The new cases are Thai citizens returning from abroad.
A total of 61 patients remain hospitalized, 2,963 have recovered and returned home, and 57 died, according to Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health.
Thailand has enforced a national curfew since April 3. All nationals except medical workers, emergency workers, 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 June 30 as the curfew and other travel restrictions have slowed the spread of disease.
Public venues such as open-air markets and sports grounds reopened on May 3, while shopping malls, restaurants, conference centers and swimming pools reopened on May 17. On June 1 will open movie theaters, sports fields and more commercial activities, as part of a phased plan of reopening the country.
