▶︎ Recoveries: 7,582

Saturday’s cases bring the total number of COVID-19 infections in Thailand to 2,369,814 with 22,019 deaths.

The news comes as subsequent jabs of COVID-19 vaccines may cause undesirable effects if they are administered too early, a viral expert has warned.

Prof Dr Yong Poovorawan, head of the Center of Excellence in Clinical Virology at Chulalongkorn University, wrote on Facebook that many people asked about proper doses of COVID-19 vaccination and some people even said they had already received five shots comprising the first two jabs of. the Sinovac vaccine, followed by a jab of AstraZeneca and then two shots of Moderna. Some people said they did not count their initial Sinovac jabs.
