Most Bangkok Residents Wear Their Masks According To Weekly Mask Survey

Bangkok residents now wear their face masks properly, and residents in the provinces are being encouraged to follow suit, the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) said.
The CCSA’s spokesman, Dr. Taweesilp Visanuyothin, reported that 99.7% of people surveyed in Bangkok by the Ministry of Higher Education Science Research and Innovation’s “AI Mask” project wore their face-covering properly.
A weekly survey shows that 0.26% of respondents wear face masks incorrectly and 0.02% do not observe disease control measures. In 29 districts, 1633 people were surveyed.
“Other provinces should follow Bangkok’s lead,” he said.
Despite the survey result, Bangkok reported the newest cases of Covid-19 to CCSA yesterday. 3,495 new cases were reported in the capital, up from 3,736 the previous day.
Thailand reported 14,403 new cases of Covid-19 and 189 additional deaths, while 15,610 Covid-19 patients were discharged from hospitals.
The second-highest number of Covid-19 cases was reported in Samut Prakan (1,037), followed by 802 in Chon Buri, 678 in Samut Sakhon, 615 in Ratchaburi, 496 in Nonthaburi, 402 in Narathiwat, 399 in Prachin Buri, 393 in Rayong, and 321 in Saraburi.
39 of the new fatalities, down from 220 the previous day, were caused by underlying health conditions, and one died at home in Nakhon Sawan province.
Among Thailand’s neighbors, Bangkok had the highest death toll with 25 (down from 43 on the previous night) while Samut Prakan (14), Samut Sakhon (12), Pathum Thani (10), and Nonthaburi (6), reported 42.
According to Dr. Taweesilp, 29 provinces continued to experience heavy caseloads even though infections were declining.
