Pubs, bars and karaoke still face stringent checks to keep Bangkok Covid-19 free

A deputy governor has urged the authorities and the people in Bangkok to not let down their coronavirus guard even though there has not been a Covid-19 case contracted within the capital for 60 days. 

 

Details have also been given of the case of the Sudanese girl of a diplomat's family who tested positive. 

 

Deputy governor Sophon Phisuthiwong chaired a meeting and said that while the coronavirus pandemic was under control in Bangkok there were more than 200,000 cases daily worldwide and the prospect of the disease coming in from outside Thailand remained very possible. 

 

It could especially happen if illegal immigrants came in. 

 

The meeting was told that places deemed to be particularly likely to result in a new spike of the disease - pubs, karaokes, bars and the like - should continue to be checked so that they are following all the rules. 

 

Limiting the number in bars and making sure that everyone was using the Thai Chana tracing app was still very important.

A total of 380 people were tested in the wake of the positive test on the Sudanese girl.

 

Seven of these were close family members and the rest were residents at the condo where the family stayed. 

 

No additional person tested positive for the virus.

 

Those in the family were undergoing a 14 day embassy quarantine while those in the condo would isolate at home for two weeks. 

 

Many used the same lift as the infected girl.

More likely to get it on the BTS or other forms of public transport, if the virus is still about after the "alleged" no Covid-19 for 60 days spiel.

If the virus is not prevalent within Thailand (As we are led to believe) and no outsiders allowed into the country exactly where is the threat ...........????

Call me dumb as a bag of bolts, but I would think the last place an illegal immigrant would visit would be a bar or karaoke..........

and what exactly are the markers that must be achieved to declare thailand virus-free?

 

the WHO/CDC define the end of a viral outbreak as twice the length of the virus' incubation period, in covid's case 28 days (2 x 14)

 

in contrast, here, no cases are defined as evidence of asymptomatic cases...not withstanding the fact that multiple rounds of asymp infections indicate that the virus has weakened to the point that people no longer get sick when infected...

 

emergency decree and masks into eternity... and beyond.....

Registration makes good sense when Covid-19 aliens are allowed inside the country, but new domestic only cases after 60 days without any seems a bit unlikely.

 

Border control must be the essential part, now when a lockdown-method have been used, and used with excellent Covid-19 success. However the price paid by a lot of the population is high, so don't spoil it and lead to another lockdown.

The price paid by a lot of the population is too high when there are no COVID-19 cases in the country.

If you believe the government, there is no local virus since about 60 days.

Incubation period is about 14 days. So what is all the caution about?

Or is there something we don't know?

Meanwhile, approximately 60 people are killed daily in traffic and how many die from Dengue and Malaria?

Holiday resorts across Spain are seeing coronavirus cases rise again following the return of British tourists.

There has been a sharp increase in new infections along the Costa del Sol, with Marbella reporting its first case in 11 days while 23 people have contracted the virus in Malaga in the last 48 hours. The city of Almeria has also seen a spike in infections, only weeks after Spain reopened its borders with the UK.

Health officials in Lanzarote are also on high alert after a British holidaymaker tested positive while staying at a hotel on the island, while fears of a second lockdown in Barcelona arose after residents were asked to leave their homes only for essential trips.

The Spanish government has insisted that the infection rate is under control amid fears that other European countries could close borders if the number of cases continues to rise.

The UK is set to review its list of travel corridors on Monday, while France has refused to rule out the possibility of halting travel to and from Spain in order to prevent a second outbreak.
