He was a hotel manager in the southern province of Phang-nga, said Taweesin Wisanuyothin, spokesman for the government’s Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration.
Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha said in a televised address that the government alone cannot solve the health and economic challenges posed by the pandemic, so other sectors should join what he called “Team Thailand”. (AP)
Another new case of infection in the country was of a 27-year-old female patient who had returned from Russia, Wisanuyothin said.
Thailand has reported a total of 2989 cases and 55 fatalities since the outbreak began in January.
There are 173 patients being treated at hospital and a total 2761 patients have recovered.
