Thailand recorded 7 new imported coronavirus cases on Monday, taking the total number of infections to 3,743. No new deaths were reported.

The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration said all the new cases were Thai nationals returning from overseas, and none had shown symptoms of the disease. 

Two of the new cases arrived on Oct 18, a man who flew in from Bahrain and a woman who returned Austria. Both tested positive last Thursday.

The four other cases arrived from the Middle East via Qatar on Wednesday: a man who began his trip home in Jordan, a woman in Iraq, a woman in Turkey and a woman who embarked in Qatar. All four tested positive on Saturday.
