"Thailand recorded 1,543 new Covid cases today, the highest number since the virus outbreak began early last year."

The domestic cases number above basically means self-reported/referred local cases. The active cases search number is those who showed positive for COVID from government outreach testing. The 3 returnees number is COVID cases detected from international travelers in quarantine.

It is steadily climbing, and one has to wonder how long ago the tests were done in order to obtain  these results.  If has been said it is taking 4 days, then these tests were from the day people started traveling for Songkran and it would be nice to know how many they have been testing daily since Songkran started.  Chiang Mai seems to have a cluster that has formed, is that from the Bangkok cluster, or is it from fleeing Myanmar folks.  The Nakhon Ratchasima cluster from a barbeque joint is also an issue, but does not seem to have been listed as a hotspot..

Thainland is only coundry to report that number!

Not sure who is happy, maybe the people who saw their home country mess up and want to be superior. I for one am not happy about it but it going as expected. I expect it to be worse after songkran. I think getting this under control wont work. The numbers will be to too high to do good contact tracing and so on. When it goes up more things will be even harder to control.

No I am not happy about seeing the forest through the trees like I could due to a true lack of clarity and transparency and testing that should have been happening by this government, and that many others could also see through.  Glad it keeps you happy that the views of others you deemed nonsensical and inane were actually spot on.  Actually I am pretty saddened to see the house of cards falling just like a Jenga game.  Stay safe folks, 

 

This was always a possibility but the Government can never plan for the unexpected and have alternate plans in place that can be gone to when the unexpected occurs.

The Thai Government and the Europeans have all been the same, REACTIVE, the UK was proactive after a while got the vaccine even before it was cleared to be used, and now look there people are going back shopping and in the pubs, but will it last.

After Songkhran it will get worse, a huge rollout of vaccinations is required soonest, and the Government need to clamp down like in France with curfews.

Yes it really was unexpected that by fudging the numbers, allowing people to travel en-masse would result in an explosion of cases, yep very unexpected that.

Very few new vaccinations for the latest day during the Song Kran holiday. Total doses administered since the beginning, along with first dose and second dose subtotals, not much different from yesterday:

Numbers of new first and second shot doses added for the most recent day:

Regarding the 1 million new doses of the Chinese Sinovac vaccine that just arrived to Thailand in recent days, the government announced that it plans to allocate the majority of those toward ensuring that all public and private sector medical staff are fully vaccinated during the coming month.

Dmaxdan is wrong - not that I am any Jeremiah or supporter of Jeremiahs. It's been obvious to me and others for some time,  that there has been something very wrong with the reported numbers coming out  of Thailand. it's also been obvious for some time that the numbers coming out of this smug and self-satisfied government have been wrong and, perhaps deliberately so.

 

This is a wake-up call, if Thailand does not do something  beyond the means of Mister Prayuth to do, then it's going to crash and burn. There will be some who will say "Som Nam Na". I'm not one of them, but I suspect that some of the people slagging off the former poster are. Or perhaps were. It seems a terrible shame that Thailand accepted an undemocratic government, but they did.  Undemocratic and incompetent,  with, I suspect, few inhibitions insofar as being creative with numbers is concerned.

Last night, the major Thai retailers announced that department stores and malls starting today would have a 9 p.m. closing time daily because of the COVID outbreak.

 

Today, it was announced that bank branches nationwide also will implement earlier closing times, and some branches in so-called "high risk areas" will be closed temporarily for the time being:

 

Banks at high-risk areas to be closed temporarily: Thai Bankers Association

 

"To maintain continuous banking services as well as reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19, the Thai Bankers Association has released the following guidelines:
 

• Bank branches at high-risk areas will be closed temporarily, though customers can still use ATMs as well electronic and online channels. Information on closed branches will be available on the bank’s website.

 

• The closing time of bank branches nationwide will be adjusted from Friday onwards:

o Branches in department stores or those that are opened for service every day must close by 5pm.

o Other branches to close no later than 3.30pm."

Fully agree, except with the last paragraph. Planning for the unexpected and creating alternative plans is exactly what governments all over the world are elected for.

UK was not pro active was one of the worst preforming countries. Because of BJ. But they did redeem themselves with their vaccination drive nobody can deny that. But to act like the UK did it good from the start is laughable. 

 

But NOW they are one of the best, also undeniably.

Do you believe this government was elected and expects the unexpected? just a question.  I don't believe they ever have contingent plans, and no long range planning in place to assist when the feces hits the fan.  TAT is one example of someone who makes long range plans and yet they are always out to lunch.

Agree. You're right of course... more's the pity.

 

Still, TIT, and only a fool would take whatever they say as being gospel.

It is worrying, but not as worrying as you might think as in Thailand everyone with positive test-results are hospitalized. This is also so even if you have mild or no symptoms. I am pretty sure the majority falls into that category.

 

What I really like to know is how many tests they have done and the positive ratio from those. I fear the numbers of tests done are limited and the positive ratio be high.

For the 7 day period 29 March - 4 April the positivity rate was 0.7%.

However that is overall, inclusive of tests done on travellers in quarantine.  I think rate would be much higher in some subsets of people tested/locations.

 

They have nto updated lab data online since 4 April and of course that is when the big surge in cases occurred. I expect we'll see an update next week after the holidays end.
