BANGKOK (The Nation/ANN): There was only one new confirmed Covid-19 case – the lowest in months – over a 24-hour period and no deaths, Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin, spokesman of the government’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, said on Tuesday (May 5).

The number of Covid-19 patients now stands at 2,988, with 2,747 having recovered and been discharged, while 194 are under hospital treatment. The number of deaths remains at 54.

The latest new case was a diabetic 45-year-old man living in Narathiwat province. He experienced difficulty in breathing and had pneumonia, which lead to his hospitalistion and Covid-19 detection.

He had travelled for religious proposes and had earlier come into contact with a person who was infected.

Some 40 people in Yala, who were initially thought to have Covid-19 but whose samples proved negative in a second test, are still under investigation and a final report is expected this afternoon. - The Nation/Asia News Network
