Coronavirus cases in Thailand increase to 14, said health officials


BANGKOK — Six more cases of coronavirus infection have been discovered on Tuesday, said the Ministry of Public Health, bringing the total number to 14 so far since the outbreak in December.

All of the six new patients were Chinese nationals; one from the city of Chongqing and five others are members of a family from Hubei province, stated Sukhum Sukpimai, permanent secretary of the Ministry of Public Health. Their age ranges from 6 to 60, Sukhum told reporters.

The additional cases place Thailand as the country with the largest number of confirmed coronavirus infection outside mainland China, Khaosod English reported.

All of the patients were visiting Thailand as independent travelers and not part of any tour group, the official said. He added that they are not in serious condition.

Five of the 14 infected individuals had already recovered and left the hospital, health officials said.
