Thailand’s single-day confirmed cases hit a new high
Bangkok, April 11 The number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Thailand has continued to rise recently, and 967 new cases were reported on the 11th, a new high of confirmed cases in a single day.
Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, added 236 new confirmed cases on the same day, the largest number in the country, followed by more than 180 new cases in Chiang Mai and Chunburi provinces. At present, a new round of epidemic since late March has affected 70 provinces in Thailand.
As of that day, Thailand had a total of 32,625 confirmed cases, of which 28,214 were cured and 97 died.
Thai Ministry of Health officials said that the new outbreak in Thailand is related to the mutant virus found in the United Kingdom. The health department has observed that some confirmed patients have different symptoms, such as red eyes, runny nose and skin rash, but no fever. The health department hopes that people in the above situation will see a doctor quickly.
Due to the severe epidemic situation in Bangkok, the number of beds for COVID-19 patients in the local area began to be tense.
To this end, Thai Prime Minister Prayut has asked Bangkok hospitals to tap the potential for admission and prepare relevant hotels for the treatment of mild patients. At the same time, Prayut also ordered the health department and the military to prepare for the establishment of square cabin hospitals, which can quickly improve the admission capacity once the number of confirmed cases surges.
