Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health confirmed 91 more coronavirus cases on Friday with one more fatality bringing the total death toll to five.
The total number of confirmed cases stands at 1,136 patients. Today’s toll was the lowest reporting number in six days.
Of that number 11 people are in serious or critical condition, ministry spokesman Dr Anupong Sujariyakul told reporters at a daily press briefing.
The new fatality was an individual from the southern province of Narathiwat.
Anupong said that the virus has now spread to 52 provinces with 88.3 per cent (1,003 patients) of cases being Thai nationals while the rest (133 patients) being foreign nationals.
Anupong said the people most at risk were those with diabetes, high blood pressure, and people with respiratory conditions like asthma.
Anupong said that if citizens accepted and respected the current measures by the government, then the curve would flatten soon.
