Thailand ranks 4th in ASEAN region for total Covid-19 cases

Last week, the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) stressed that Thailand may hit daily cases of 10,000 in the next few weeks. However, it seems the country is reaching those digits sooner because on 15th July 2021, Thailand has officially logged 9,186 Covid-19 cases, according to CCSA.

With these rising numbers, Thailand now ranks 4th in ASEAN’s list of infected countries. Here’s what we know so far.

Thailand ranks 4th in ASEAN region for Covid-19 cases

On 15th July 2021, Thailand found itself with 9,186 new Covid-19 cases.

The numbers of cases have been consistently hitting 8,000 to 9,000 cases per day, asserted CCSA, as reported by the Thaiger.

Our country now ranks fourth in ASEAN’s list of affected countries – based on yesterday’s reports of the latest updates.

At fourth place, Thailand has 363,029 total cases – whilst Indonesia ranks first with a total of 2,670,046 infections.

In addition to that, the highest cases in the country are in Bangkok – with a total number of 103,907 cases recorded. Samut Prakan clocks in with a case count that’s the second-highest in the country – with 24,314 cases logged as reported by PR Thai Government.

But on the bright side, over 5,543 patients have already recovered.

Stay tuned for more updates on the national tally

Due to rapid infection rates, the situation requires that we keep ourselves updated with the government’s directives.

Frequent changes in Covid-19 safety measures are also to be expected in order to curb the virus and adapt to the changing situation.

Let’s stay vigilant, and we hope this global health crisis will be contained soon.
