The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) on Sunday reported 198 new cases with one death in the past 24 hours.

 

Seven of the cases were international travellers in quarantine.

 

Of the new cases, 118 were exposed to the virus while visiting high-risk areas. The province with the highest number of infections was Samut Sakhon (76), followed by Bangkok (21), and Samut Prakarn (12).

 

Proactive testing led to the discovery of 73 cases, 70 of them foreigners and two Thais un Samut Sakhon, and one case in Rayong of a Thai woman.

 

Of the overseas travellers, four are Thai nationals returning from Belgium, Malaysia, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates. Also testing positive were two French nationals who flew in from their country and a Myanmar man at the screening checkpoint.

 

A woman in Samut Sakhon, 73, who had an underlying disease (high blood pressure, Alzheimers, and epilepsy) later developed pneumonia and passed away on January 23. She got the infection from her family member on January 4 and was confirmed positive on January 9.

 

Apisamai Srirangsan, assistant spokeswoman, said infection numbers nationwide had deceased from the first week of outbreak.

Thailand found infections in 39 provinces during January 3-9, in 24 provinces during January 17-23 and only in seven provinces on Sunday. At the same time, the detection rate in the outbreak area -- Samut Sakhon -- is at 7 per cent on average.

 

Meanwhile, 119 patients have recovered and been discharged.

As of Sunday, the number of confirmed cases in Thailand rose to 13,500. Of these, 11,136 contracted the virus domestically, including 4,568 who were found via proactive testing, and 2,364 are returnees. So far, 10,567 have recovered and been discharged, 2,860 patients are still in hospital and the death toll has risen to 73.

 

According to Worldometer, as of midnight on Saturday, the number of confirmed cases globally had risen to 99.33 million (increasing by 670,974), 71.37 million have recovered, 25.82 million are active cases (110,663 in severe condition) and 2.13 million have died (up by 16,743).

 

Thailand ranks 126th on the global list of most cases. The US tops the list with 25.56 million, followed by India 10.65 million, Brazil 8.81 million, Russia 3.7 million and the United Kingdom 3.62 million.

Looks like it is fair and balanced testing with nothing to see, we have attained straightening the curve once again...very serious how they are aggressively testing thousand upon hundreds of thousand to get the flattened curve.

They are testing where they need to test and finding very few positives.

That's now enough time to be statistically significant and looks like their efforts are working. But they need to keep up the pressure. Good for them.

I wouldn't say funny, more annoying. Far more positives in Bangkok but easing restrictions there. Maybe because the government is Bangkok centric?

The UN recommends that countries maintain a good ratio of tested to positive cases. According to ourworldindata.com Thailand is about 100/1, which is much better than most nations.

 

The UN does not recommend massive testing without need.

They have indeed.

 

And they have done a reasonably large amount of testing, contrary to the myth perpetuated by some on this  forum.

At the bottom of this link the CCSA guy says everyone entering Thailand must be CV-19 free. ( start at 3min. 12 secs)

Then he say to get a COE you must be Covid free, BUT do Thai's need a COE or will they continue to fly back to Thailand and ill?

Here is the link , go to the video at the bottom.

According to Worldometer

According to Worldmeter Thailand has embarrassingly low testing numbers for the size of the population.

 

The illusion of low infections mean nothing with such low testing numbers.

Correct check the lists from 220 Countries/Other Thailand is in 172 place, Gibraltar is number 1, UK 17th place

 

(Filter - test per 1 million population high to low)

Less than half of Myanmar and less than a quarter of Malaysia sound more like a reasonably small amount by comparison.

If we take a look at the fatalities it's positive, that the numbers are still so low. 

 

If the statistics followed the same curve prior to Dec 24 we would have witnessed approximately 137 deaths in total, but it's only at 73. 

 

Dec 24 total. 

5829 cases. 

60 deaths. 

 

Jan 24 total. 

13500 cases. 

73 deaths.

I wonder if in the above calculations they deducted the excess deaths, now that would bring down the % would it ?

I've miscalculated Malaysia's proportion as Malaysia has less than half of Thailand's population which would make Thailand's testing about one eighth of Malaysia's.

Never mind the amount of testing Thailand is doing, a topic that is becoming decidedly boring, how many take the trouble to have a look at the Covid 19 news tracker map?

 

What becomes immediately obvious is that the authorities are being very successful in containing the spread of the virus. A quick glance will tell you that it is confined to the Bangkok region, where it all began.

 

At its peek, in the early part of last year there were outbreaks in many parts of the country and the great fear was that it would happen all over again due to the new year holiday exodus. Well it hasn't happened and IMO it won't be long this new outbreak is over.

 

They are doing a great job.

Could some kind soul please show me the 'foreigners' column on the worldometer chart, as no matter how hard I look at the world chart I cannot see it.
