No new coronavirus infections or deaths were reported on Saturday, leaving the countrywide tally at 3,025 cases and 56 deaths.
Of all patients, 2,855 have recovered and have been discharged from hospitals while 114 are still under treatment, Dr Taweesilp Visanuyothin, spokesman for the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, said on Saturday morning.
"Today there are two zeroes ... thank you to all Thais who have given their cooperation," he said.
This is the second day since March 9 that the country has reported no new daily Covid-19 cases. New cases have been in the low single digits almost every day for the past three weeks.
The areas with the most cases are Bangkok and Nonthaburi (1,703), followed by the South (726), Central Plains (390), Northeast (111) and North (95).
The government on Sunday allow malls and department stores to reopen as part of a further easing of emergency measures. It will also shorten the nighttime curfew by one hour, to 11pm to 4am, from 10pm to 4am.
