Thailand on Monday reported one new imported coronavirus case, for an accumulated total of 3,250.
The new patient was a 52-year-old Thai man who worked as an electrician in Singapore, said Taweesilp Visanuyothin, spokesman for the Centre for Covid Situation Administration.
The man returned to Thailand on July 6 and was in state quarantine when a test result came back positive on Friday..
The death toll remained at 58, while 96 Covid-19 patients are currently in hospital.
Dr Taweesilp said 6,501 people who might have been exposed to the virus in Rayong had so far tested negative, along with 364 in Bangkok. Fears arose that a large number of people were exposed to the virus when a Covid-positive Egyptian who was supposed to be in quarantine while on a stopover visited shopping malls.
