Bangkok (People's Daily) - Thailand on Thursday confirmed three new cases of the COVID-19 coronavirus, bringing the total to 3,037.
A total of 84 patients remain hospitalized and 2,897 have recovered and returned home, while 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 after the curfew and other travel restrictions slowing the spread of disease.
Public venues such as open-air markets and sports grounds have reopened on May 3, while the shopping malls, restaurants, conference centers and swimming pools reopened on May 17, as part of a phased plan of reopening the country.
