Thursday’s cases bring the total number of COVID-19 infections in Thailand to 2,088,327 with 20,581 deaths.
The news comes as Thailand’s Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul is urging unvaccinated people, who are waiting for Pfizer or Moderna vaccines booked with private hospitals, to cancel their bookings and get free jabs of Pfizer vaccine at state vaccination facilities.
The minister stressed the urgent need to speed up vaccinations, to reach the target of 100 million doses administered by the end of this month.
He made clear, however, that the Public Health Ministry will not negotiate refunds with the Private Hospital Association.
