SET Index closed at 1,568.21 points, decreased 11.80 points or 0.75% with a trading value of 93.3 billion baht. The analyst stated that the Thai stock market closed lower without a positive driver, while the coronavirus cases remained high and the death toll escalated quickly. Moreover, some speculated that the GDP outlook might be revised down due to the prolonged pandemic outbreak in Thailand.
