Thailand reported 189 new coronavirus cases on Tuesday.

 

Most of  the new cases (159) were again discovered during testing of migrant workers at quarantine facilities and hospitals in Samut Sakhon.

 

Of the new cases, 56 were discovered via active contact tracing, while 123 were so-called ‘walk-ins’ discovered from people reporting to hospital. 10 cases were imported from people entering quarantine.

 

Thailand’s Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) also reported that 956 people were discharged from hospital having made a full recovery.

 

5,301 people remain in hospital or held in a migrant worker quarantine centre. No new deaths were reported

 

Tuesday’s cases bring the total number of COVID-19 infections in Thailand to 23,746, with 79 deaths.

and that folks, is absolute b*ll*cks.

Out of a total of 189 there were 159 cases reported as Covid testing of migrant workers at quarantine facilities, yet there were 123 "walk-ins"? These numbers simply don't make any sense.

Success 56 were discovered via active contact tracing. Check

 

Success only 123 walk into hospital cases, down from 140 yesterday. Amazing Thailand I love you. 

 

Seems people are being responsible and following all advice given. Congratulations to Thailands Health Service.

 

Can we have an update on the number of tests for yesterday please?

This is complete 'double speak'. Someone please make sense of this. 65% are hospital presentations.

So mass testing has stopped in Samut Sakhon, and they are only testing those who come in to hospitals feeling sick? These numbers are being manipulated, believe them if you want

Sure has and everyone I have talked to here (SS) know these numbers are absolute BS. Please Prayut fan boys tell me why Thai people are saying this.

The actual rate at which people are becoming Infected has gone up.

When 10,000 tests were performed Daily there were about  800 people positive per Day ( 8% ). The rate of testing has now dropped to 2000 per Day to save Money, an there are 189 positives . This is a rate of 9.5 % positivity.

Unfortunately, yesterday's BMA chart posted by Richard Barrow makes things no clearer. We still haven't a clue if there's really any testing going on unless one shows up on the hospital steps.

We should know how many PCR tests are accomplished each day, how many rapid tests & where Covid+s are showing up.

 

All we really know is there have been 863 Covid+s in Bangkok during the second wave and 6,068 (https://covid19.ddc.moph.go.th/en) are still in hospitals nationwide, 145 of them in the capital.

 

From to total of 23,746 that looks to me like ~25% are cases serious enough to remain in hospital.

 

I'm not a maths guy but these are scary numbers. We're likely still seeing exponential growth from New Year travel & we're about to spread the virus to families in every province by Chinese New Year travel.

 

STAY HOME, PLEASE!

Positivity = 56/5000 = 1%
