Thailand on Monday reported three new imported coronavirus cases, for an accumulated total of 3,320. The death toll remained at 58.
They include a maid, 26, and a male driver, 43, who returned from the United Arab Emirates last Wednesday and were in quarantine in Chon Buri.
The third case is a male student, 19, who arrived from India last Thursday and was placed in quarantine in Bangkok.
Spokesman Taweesilp Visanuyothin said the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration was concerned about a rebound of the virus, as new waves were appearing in Australia, Hong Kong, Israel and Croatia.
"We hope [any rebound] will be delayed as long as possible. It will be even better if we have no second wave," Dr Taweesilp said.
It has now been seventy days since the last confirmed case of local transmission of the novel coronavirus.
