Panprapa Yongtrakul, assistant spokeswoman for the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, said local infections comprised 52 confirmed at hospitals and 41 found in communities.

Samut Sakhon province, the only maximum and strict control zone in the country, logged 54 new cases, 58.06% of the new local cases. Of them, 40 were found at hospitals (26 Thais and 14 Myanmar) and 14 during active case finding in communities (12 Myanmar and two Thais).

Bangkok and Ang Thong recorded two new cases each at hospitals, all of them Thais.

Nonthaburi logged three cases -- two in communities (a Myanmar and a Cambodian) and a Thai at hospital.

Also at hospitals, two Myanmar cases were found in Tak and one each (Thai) in Nakhon Pathom and Ayutthaya.

The two imported cases were quarantined arrivals from the United Kingdom -- a British company employee, 51, and a 16-year-old Thai student.

Of the 25,599 total cases, 24,446 (95.5%) recovered, including 85 discharged over the past 24 hours and 1,070 were at hospitals. The death toll remained unchanged at 83.
