The meeting reported current situation of the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) on 28th April 2020. In Bangkok, 3 new COVID-19 cases were confirmed with the total confirmed cases of 1,484. 2 patients were recovered and discharged and the total recovered cases were 1,354. 106 patients were undergoing treatment in hospitals with 1 additional death, which brought the total number of deaths to 24.
As the spread of COVID-19 situation shows a declining trend, the BMA then decided to cancel all COVID-19 screening checkpoints, which was effective on 28th April 2020, from 20.00 hrs. onward. This change will allow police officers stationed at the checkpoints to facilitate and protect lives and property of citizens as well as to keep order and supervise procedures for relief supplies donation.
