BANGKOK, July 1 — Thailand on Thursday reported a daily record of 57 deaths from the coronavirus, the second day in a row of record-high fatalities as the South-east Asian country struggles to quell a stubborn third wave of Covid-19 infections.

The report came on the same day as Thailand is kicking off a programme to revive tourism on Phuket, which has seen far fewer cases than the mainland after Thailand prioritised vaccinations for the population of the resort island.

Under the plan, foreign tourists vaccinated against Covid-19 can bypass quarantine requirements and freely move around the island. After 14 days, barring any coronavirus issues, they can travel elsewhere in the country.

Thailand lost about US$50 billion (RM208 billion) in tourism revenue last year as foreign arrivals plunged 83 per cent to 6.7 million, from a record 39.9 million in 2019. Phuket was hit particularly hard by job losses and business closings.

The new Covid-19 deaths reported on Thursday take Thailand’s total number of fatalities to 2,080 since the pandemic started last year.

The country’s Covid-19 task force also reported 5,533 new coronavirus cases, bringing the total number of infections to 264,834. — Reuters
