Of the new cases reported on Sunday, two were linked to previous cases and three had travelled abroad, he said. Slowing numbers of new cases have prompted Thailand to allow some businesses to reopen after weeks of semi-lockdown.
The deadly virus outbreak has created a major stir around the world in recent times claiming the lives of nearly 280,000 people worldwide and infecting over four million people globally. The WHO has described the virus outbreak as a pandemic.
