A COVID-19 surge in Chiang Mai is considered to be a red alert after the province recorded an additional 269 COVID-19 cases on Monday, and the number of at-risk people is estimated at about 5,000-6,000.



The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) said Chiang Mai led Bangkok and Chonburi in new COVID-19 infections as Thailand logged a new daily record of 985 cases yesterday. The Chiang Mai figures included a large cluster found in the province on Sunday afternoon.

Chiang Mai governor Charoenrit Sa-nguansat said the situation is critical and the key to preventing large clusters forming was to identify and isolate those at most risk as quickly as possible.
