Three Thai returnees in state quarantine have been infected with the coronavirus, bringing the total to 3,282 cases.

A 23-year-old employee, who arrived from Sudan on July 10, was in a state quarantine facility in Chon Buri province. She tested positive on Tuesday but showed no symptoms, the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration said on Saturday.

The other two returnees from the US were a 14-year-old student and a 23-year-old employee who arrived on July 11 and were sent to a state quarantine facility in Bangkok. They underwent coronavirus tests on July 23. The former had a sore throat while the latter showed no symptoms, the centre said.

The new infections brought the total number of cases in the country to 3,282, with fatalities unchanged at 58. Of the infected patients, 3,109 had recovered, including two new recovering cases, or 94.73%. A total of 115 patients remained in hospitals.
