According to Taweesilp Visanuyothin, the spokesman for the Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration, the Buddhist-majority nation has not reported any local COVID-19 infections for the last one month, daily Bangkok Post reported.

One new imported case was reported on Wednesday after a returnee from the Philippines tested positive for the virus.
