Two more Covid-19 patients in Thailand have fully recovered and were discharged earlier today (February 18), the Department of Disease Control told a press conference.

“The total number of Covid-19 cases in Thailand today is the same as yesterday at 35,” deputy director-general Dr Thanarak Phaliphat said. “The number of confirmed infected patients in Thailand currently under hospital care is 18, while 17 have fully recovered and have been discharged.”

Thanarak said the two patients are Chinese tourists who were treated at Rajavithi Hospital.

“Out of 18 currently under hospital care, two are in serious yet stable condition and need endotracheal tubes. Doctors are monitoring them closely around the clock,” he said.

“As of February 18, Thailand had 872 patients under investigation. Out of these, 82 are under hospital monitoring while 790 have been discharged. Of the total patients, 55 were hospitalised after airport screening, while 817 were walk-in patients. Most of those discharged were diagnosed with seasonal flu and not Covid-19 pneumonia,” he added.
