The graph above shows a promising, gradual decline from 8th April, which had 111 cases. Currently, the total number of cases amounts to 2,579 and 40 deaths, according to the Department of Disease Control website.

The safety measures taken by the government seem to be working so far. The banning of alcohol probably helped and will continue to do so during the postponed Songkran season, which means fewer chances of clusters over this week.

At this rate, it should keep going down as long as people obey curfews and stay at home.
