Third wave? When was the first and second wave?




From the TH Ministry of Public Health, showing from mid-Dec. 2020 through early April 2021.


I  believe, the red line reflects people who get tested and found positive on their own, whereas the tan bars reflect sporadic outreach testing.


For whatever reason, in their chart, they don't tally the two categories of positive cases together, but instead, treat them as separate/overlapping categories.


The Samut Sakhon outbreak involving Myanmar migrants earlier this year (shown in the tall tan colored bars) certainly would get counted as at least one of the prior waves.

He cited the drive-through COVID-19 screening, being conducted by the Ramkhamhaeng Hospital since April 1st, which shows that about 9% of those tested were infected, adding that most of the infected had visited entertainment venues.


Interesting factoid to casually mention.


Are these being reported in the daily CCSA figures?


How does anyone know if the infected visited entertainment areas?




Seems like a fairly big, albeit uncoordiated, push to discourage Songkhran travel/partying, without seeming too authoritarian, i.e. prayut ordering it and seeming like a army general.
