Thailand records lowest daily COVID-19 tally in more than a month
BANGKOK: Thailand recorded 19 new COVID-19 cases on Tuesday (Apr 21), a senior health official said, the lowest daily tally in more than a month.
A 50-year-old taxi driver accounted for the latest death, said Taweesin Wisanuyothin, a spokesman for the government’s Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration.
Thailand’s 19 new cases make up its lowest daily increase since it reported seven cases on Mar 14, preceding a surge in new cases that prompted the prime minister to enforce an emergency decree and order a partial lockdown.
