Bangkok : Thailand reported 143 new coronavirus infections on Monday and in quarantine detected its first case of the highly contagious COVID-19 variant first found in South Africa, its coronavirus task force said. Two new deaths were reported, taking fatalities to 82, with overall cases at 24,714, the majority of which have come in the past two months.

The variant was found in a Thai man who had travelled from Tanzania. He was undergoing mandatory quarantine for all arrivals from abroad. South Africa had planned to roll out the AstraZeneca vaccine, which took a halt due to safety reasons. Thailand plans to use AstraZeneca vaccine in the mass immunisation program.
