Bangkok (People's Daily) - Thailand on Thursday confirmed 54 new cases of the COVID-19, bringing the total to 2,423.

1,451 patients remain hospitalized and 940 have recovered and returned home, according to Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health. 32 died from complications related to the disease.

Thailand has enforced a national curfew from 10 pm to 4 am since Friday to better curb the spread of the pandemic due to the rising number of infections, according to Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha.

All nationals, except medics, emergency workers and personnel delivering medical supplies and patients, were urged to stay at home.

The Thai government has also restricted traffic and human activity, and banned people from entering the country until April 18 to control the pandemic.
