The highest number of new wave Covid-19 infections in Bangkok are in the western area of the city, the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) said on Tuesday.


Since December 20, 606 new cases were reported in the capital, most of whom were people who had gone to the hospital with symptoms or suspected they may have caught the virus.


Bangkok’s situation was deemed stable, with only 12 new cases reported on Tuesday and six people who are at risk who have been isolated, CCSA spokesman Taweesin Visanuyothin said.

Bang Khunthien district, which borders Samut Sakhon province, had the highest number of patients with 106, followed by Bang Khae (27), Bang Phlat (27), Chom Thong (25) and Thonburi (21). Only the only two areas in the west of the city that are free of infections are Samphanthawong and Saphan Sung.


Taweesin said Bangkok still needs to be closely monitored, especially for transmissions between family members.

This is old news now mostly and all the last few days BKK cases have been out west and supposedly contained in a small cluster - so why are hundreds of thousands of people having their lives and businesses destroyed still? 

One suspects, the govt just doesn't care and it's a very handy way of clamping down on protests (as the govt drops any pretence at being a democracy and cracks down).
