Thailand reported three additional cases of the new coronavirus on Sunday, bringing its total cases to 3,028 as the country relaxes local restrictions and re-opens malls and department stores. No additional deaths were recorded.

The three new cases, detected in state quarantine, were Thai students who returned from overseas earlier this month, Taweesilp Visanuyothin, spokesman for the government's Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, said on Sunday. One flew in from Pakistan and two from Egypt. 

Thailand has reported a total of 56 deaths with 116 patients still being treated.
