Bangkok, Aug 27 (TIWN) As the Covid-19 situation is gradually improving in Thailand, authorities were considering easing some restrictions in Bangkok and some provinces.

On Thursday, Thailand registered 18,501 new Covid-19 cases, the fifth consecutive day of less than 20,000 infections, Xinhua news agency reported.

The new daily cases raised Thailand's cumulative infections to 1,120,869, according to the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA).

The death toll also rose by 229 to 10,314, it said.

The decrease of new cases growth and a continuing surplus of daily recoveries over new infections are driving the government's considerations to ease some lockdown measures, CCSA assistant spokeswoman Apisamai Srirangsan told reporters.
