BANGKOK, May 22 (Xinhua) -- Thailand on Friday reported zero case of COVID-19 but the government's Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) warned Thais to remain cautions as "there are still infected people roaming undetected in the community," said CCSA spokesman Taweesin Visanuyothin.

"We suspect that there still infected people out there without our knowledge because ever since we launched the Active Finding Case (AFC) where we did random testing in high risk communities, we have picked up several people who have tested positive for COVID-19," said Taweesin.

The spokesman also reported that from May 8 to 21, 45 people tested positive for the disease, while 20 of them were infected in other countries and were quarantined on return to Thailand. Twenty-five caught the disease locally, he said.

Taweesin said out of the 25 who caught the virus locally, 6 tested positive from AFC testing.

As of Friday's COVID-19 daily report, there were zero new case, zero death. Total COVID-19 cases now stand at 3,037, while 2,910 had recovered and 71 patients remained at hospitals. Enditem
