Thailand Reports New Daily Record Of Nearly 10,000 COVID-19 Infections Due To Prison Clusters

BANGKOK, May 17 (NNN-TNA) – Thailand hit a new daily record with the discovery of nearly 10,000 new COVID-19 cases today, after massive infections were found in the prison system, official data showed.

The country reported 9,635 new cases, including 6,853 infected in the prison system, according to the Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA).

Excluding the prison clusters, tally of today’s infections reached 2,782.

The new infections brought the country’s total number of infections to 111,082, with more than 70 percent of the infections having been confirmed since the beginning of Apr, when the third wave began.

The death toll climbed to 614, with 25 new fatalities reported today.

The huge number of new infections came, when the country decided to relax some restrictions on dine-in services at restaurants from today.

Restaurants in the capital Bangkok, and three other provinces can provide dine-in services with limited serving capacity and operating hours. Previously, they could only open for food delivery.– NNN-TNA
