Arrivals from Cambodia continue to be detected positive in Thailand, continuing the trend of alternation.
However, no Cambodian deaths have been reported in recent weeks, a positive sign of the conditions of Cambodian migrant workers who remained in Thailand during the height of the pandemic and did not flee to their homes in Cambodia.

The others included one from the Netherlands, Mauritius, the United Kingdom, Malaysia and Myanmar, two from Poland and two from Germany. By nationality, they were two Germans, a Dutch, a Canadian, a Pole, a Mauritian, a British citizen, a Burmese national who entered illegally and four returning Thais.
