The government recorded seven new imported cases of the novel coronavirus on Monday, bringing the accumulated total in Thailand to 3,920. No new deaths were reported.

The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration said six of the cases were asymptomatic Thai returnees, and the other a Syrian man.

The Thai patients included a woman who returned from Germany on Nov 7 and tested positive last Wednesday, and a woman who arrived from Denmark on Nov 9 and was diagnosed with Covid-19 on Friday.

A Thai woman flew back from the United States via Doha on Nov 14 and tested positive for the novel coronavirus last Wednesday, while a Thai man returned from Kosovo last Tuesday and tested positive on Friday.

The last two Thai cases were a woman who returned from the United Kingdom on Nov 16 and was found to have contracted the virus on Saturday, and a woman who flew back from Qatar last Tuesday and tested positive on Friday. 

The only new foreign case was a Syrian man who flew in from Lebanon on Nov 8 after changing planes in Dubai. He developed a fever on Nov 13 and a test on Friday showed he had caught Covid-19.
