A Thai woman from the northeastern province of Chaiyaphum has tested positive for coronavirus after initially being cured of the infection last month.
The 38-year-old woman had initially contracted the virus after returning to Thailand from overseas in March and was admitted to Phyathai 2 Hospital in Bangkok.
After treatment, she was declared free of the virus and returned to her hometown in Chaiyaphum.
However, between April 3rd and April 5th, she began feeling ill again, experiencing coronavirus symptoms. She went to her local hospital for a coronavirus test and the results showed a covid-19 infection in her throat.
This event adds weight to a study that warns of a second wave of coronavirus and concludes that lockdown measures should remain in place until a vaccine is found.
The province of Chaiyaphum had 108 coronavirus cases as of yesterday, April 8th with the local government encouraging people to follow social distancing and curfew orders to try and contain the spread of the virus.
