Thailand

As of April 14, Thailand has confirmed 2,613 cases of COVID-19 and 41 deaths. The country's outbreak escalated after mid-March, with more than 100 daily confirmed cases from March 22 to April 3. In response, the government declared a state of emergency and banned all foreign tourists on March 26, a significant step given Thailand's tourism-dependent economy. Further measures came in early April in the form of a nation-wide curfew and a lockdown on the popular resort island of Phuket. In recent days, the viral spread has shown signs of slowing down.
