Only about 350,000 people started the vaccination process with their first injection in the past 10 days, while fully vaccinated figures increased by 1 million in those 10 days, with 47.1 million people having received 2 doses.

COVID-19 PROVINCIAL TOTALS

COVID-19 SATURDAY: Hospitalisations double in a week, 10 million boosters | News by Thaiger

Today Bangkok overtook Chon today as the province with the most daily Covid-19 infections, though Chon Buri has been the most infected province for all but 5 days since the start of 2022. Phuket had surged for the past 2 weeks, but peaked at 513 on the 10th and has been trending downward since.

The Department of Disease Control and CCSA has revamped their data for 2022, dropping the continuous tally since the third wave of Covid-19 on April 1 (though The Thaiger still tracks it) since some call the Omicron variant Thailand’s fifth wave.

They’ve hit the reset button and total infection numbers are now from Jannuary 1, 2022. The provinces with the highest number of new Covid-19 infections over the last 24 hours are as follows:
