Bangkok (People's Daily) - Thailand on Saturday confirmed six new cases of the COVID-19 coronavirus, bringing the total to 2,966 since the virus first arrived in the kingdom in January.

A total of 180 patients remain hospitalized,  2,732 have recovered and returned home, and 54 have died from complications related to the disease, according to Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health.

Thailand has enforced a national curfew since April 3. All nationals except medics, emergency workers and personnel delivering medical supplies and patients, are urged to stay at home. 

The national coronavirus response authority on Monday 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. 

The opening of open-air markets, sports grounds, etc. is allowed starting May 1.
