Bangkok (People's Daily) - Thailand on Friday confirmed 7 new cases of the COVID-19 coronavirus, bringing the total to 3,025 since the virus first arrived in the kingdom in January.
A total of 115 patients remain hospitalized, 2,854 have recovered and returned home, and 56 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, 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, restaurants and other public venues have reopened on May 3.
