Thailand on Thursday (July 22) reported 13,655 new COVID-19 cases and 87 additional deaths over the past 24 hours.
● 13,110 new infections
● 545 prison / prison infections
Thursday’s cases bring the total number of COVID-19 infections in Thailand to 453,132 with 3,697 deaths.
(Total infections since April 1: 424,269)
The news comes as Thailand’s National Vaccine Institute (NVI) Director Nakorn Premsri offered an apology to the public on Wednesday for the slow and insufficient national COVID-19 vaccine rollout, saying mutations of the virus were unforeseen, while promising that the country will join the COVAX program to receive donated vaccines next year.
