Deputy Covid-19 spokeswoman Dr Apisamai Srirangsan gave the latest figures for infection at a government house briefing yesterday.  

 

Clusters at parties, office parties, and work places in Bangkok were blamed on poor social distancing, lack of mask wearing and sharing of glasses and utelsils that have contributed to a spike in cases in the capital.

 

Countrywide there were 586 new cases of Covid-19. Of these 573 were internal infections and 13 brought from abroad. 

This brought the total to 22,644 but there were no new fatalities.

 

So far since the pandemic began 79 people have died, 15,331 have recovered, 7,234 are undergoing treatment and 7 are on respirators. 

 

Bangkok and Nonthaburi has seen 3,576 cases, the North 346, the north east 184, the south 818 and the central region 17,720.

In Bangkok there were the following:

 

1. Nine people infected at a party where there were 30 attendees. The same glass was used in alcohol drinking games and the hands were used in handling food and ice.

 

2. 10 infects amnong 13 people happened  at a party where the same glass was used and people were in close proximity in one room.

 

3. All seven people were infected at a gathering where there was dancing and no mask wearing.

 

4. All 16 people were infected at a party in one room.

 

Other infections at the workplace happened with five out of seven employees testing positive at a beauty clinic in Bangkok, nine out of ten at a company where no masks were used and people travelled to and from work together and two out of 21 people at a Samut Sakhon factory where protocols were not adhered to either.

Strange only aliens get Covid... Thai people are infected by foreigners .. so was on that party and did these stupid things?? I think it is a bs story..just to justify alcohol ban, parties and gatherings...If there is real mass testing and real figures everything would be much different. I know in my place at least 4 covid patients who are never mentioned because the authorities told everyone to keep quiet about it... bad for the image...so what is real?

Nothing at all to do with corrupt border officers letting in illegal migrants for underpaid slave labor jobs... nothing at all.

So the answer is to open the bars & ensure protocols are followed.Close midnight,,1 AM curfew

Any private parties will see jail time Job done.

Only one problem left, no one to police it

Get on with it! MASS TESTING NOW! There is zero testing in Bangkok and ~762 Covid+ since December 15. This is NOT going to just disappear!

You're right, Covid will be around for years.  Who do suggest should be tested?  Most people who get will be asymptomatic or just have mild symptoms.  Locking down isn't the answer, and causes more long-term harm than the virus.

Should be  20,000 random tests done at random BTS stations  to see the real situation.  I think hiso are thinking their lives are immune to getting the virus.

'Adult assembly required'  Does that mean it's like  IKEA?

It must have been the alchohol that infected them at the party!   Hmmm  Very small parties where at least 1 person had to already have covid to infect the others.  Meaning somewhere around 10% of the people at these small parties had covid.  Extrapolate that out and we have the potential that 10% of the people in Bangkok have covid.  Maybe some random mass testing IS in order to see how bad it really is!

What do you mean by "Alcohol drinking games". For me drinking alcohol is NOT a game. It is a dead serious matter. 😡

No its not a matter of life and death its more serious than that.

Yup I agree, drinking alcohol is a serious past time, and gets many people into trouble.

   Bad things happen to people who drink too much. Some lose their money, some their

  keys, some their brand new car arrives home with multiple dints and scratches that

cannot be explained. etc.   Be careful out there.

Geezer

Well it all depends on the person, I've been drinking alcohol all my life ( I know it is not good for me )

but what is? I am 73 now going on to 74 never had any problems with the law ,never drink and drive 

never assaulted or killed anybody just have a few glasses of wine at home at night. I did go to night

clubs in my younger years but very seldom. All my years in Thailand I never went to a bar.

(sorry I am lying) I had 1 beer in a beer bar in Pattaya last year in November. So it it not just the 

alcohol, it depends on the persons mentality.

If he did, he would have been right, it is not the fault of the Thai people, apart from the unelected "PM", and the people responsible for bringing in the Burmese for brown envelopes, and without quarantine.

No! He is right, apart from the corruption with transporting the Burmese in, it is not the fault of the Thai people.

I stand corrected, he is indeed right at all times, they were on top of the situation from last year, it was only when the migrants forced themselves to be brought across the border , knowing full well that skipping quarantine was a bad idea [although this was explained by the Thais doing the transportation] employers were also unaware that paperwork, visa and work permits would not be available but would follow in the post, they graciously gave them work so they wouldn't starve.

Thailand should go to the top of the humanitarian list.
