Thailand on Thursday (May 27) reported 3,323 new COVID-19 cases and 47 additional deaths.

 

● 2,104 new infections
● 1219 prison / prison infections
 
Thursday’s cases bring the total number of COVID-19 infections in Thailand to 141,217 with 920 deaths.

 

The news comes as Thailand is modifying its coronavirus immunisation strategy to target worst-hit areas and sectors where clusters are most likely to emerge.

Thailand's 47 new coronavirus deaths reported on Thursday set a new national record for daily deaths for the second day in a row, following on the prior record 41 deaths reported Wednesday -- only the second time that has happened here thus far in current third wave of the pandemic.

 

The high deaths report came as total new cases of 3,323 exceeded the 3,000 threshold now for five out of the past seven days. But a higher share of that increase came from the 1,219 prison cases, the highest prison total in the past eight days, while the general population case total of 2,104 is the second lowest figure of the past week.

 

The rise in general population cases from 1,976 on Wednesday to 2,104 on Thursday reversed what had been three consecutive days of declining numbers from the record high of 2,922 general population cases reached on May 23.

 

The 47 new deaths reported on Thursday also marked a grim new milestone. The country's daily total for new coronavirus deaths for the first time reached a level roughly equaling the nation's typical daily death toll from road accidents, with Thailand having one of the highest road fatality rates in the world.

 

The last time Thailand set back-to-back daily records for new coronavirus deaths was on April 24 and 25, when the daily totals of 8 and 11 were at the time the highest ever for the country. Thursday's total of 47 more than quadruples the then daily record of 11 deaths set just over a month ago.

 

The record high number of new deaths during the past two days came despite the nation's reported numbers of hospitalized coronavirus patients in critical condition (1,201 as of Thursday) remaining more or less stable at levels slightly below their peaks. In all, though, 46,469 COVID positive patients remain quarantined in Thailand in some type of hospital facility (as shown in the light blue colored box in the chart below), which also set a new record high on Thursday.

Opinion: A royal intervention in the healthcare arena is a rebuke against Prayuth

The announcement in the Royal Gazette that the Chulabhorn Royal Academy can ignore and bypass the Prayuth government’s policy to centralize the procurement of the Covid-19 vaccines is not only an embarrassment to the government, but also tantamount to a pseudo power-grab, at least within the healthcare realm.

 

Specifically, the decree grants autonomous power to the Institute in negotiating and importing Covid-19 vaccines with the manufacturers both in Thailand and abroad. This was a right that was reserved for only the Thai government.

 

https://www.thaienquirer.com/27935/opinion-a-royal-intervention-in-the-healthcare-arena-is-a-rebuke-against-prayuth/

 

The announcement also said all medical equipment, drugs and vaccines imported by the academy would be considered its property for the purpose of medicine and public health and will not be liable to any kind of legal execution.

88 deaths in two days. Thailand now number 84 on the covid charts up 35 spots in around a month and a half. Victoria, Australia about to go into a 7 day maybe more lockdown with an outbreak of 26 positives and numerous infection sites. Bangkok and surrounds, community transmission 2-2.5k every day. Around 200x the infections of Victoria in one day (yesterday Victoria found 11 new cases which makes up the 26 day before was 15) with around 3-4x the population. No lockdown.

Just as a comparison in Melbourne they have 26 cases and contact traces in 24 hours have tracked and locked down 10,000 close contacts and 150 exposure sites have been identified  and that the outbreak is no longer under control so in Thailand with 2000 plus positive cases each day one can imagine Thailand might have hundreds of thousand of close contacts each day and it's still under control according to the authorities and some others.

Well of course we can not comment too much on this.  However it does appear that finally someone has finally grasped the baton in the race to help the nation.  Taking that baton away from the well connected Health minister and the buffoon PM may will rancour those individuals and their sycophants whose main aim is to line their own pockets at the expense of the nation. Of course there may be downsides to these actions later but let's just accept for now that somebody has finally got fed upon with these self serving political fools and has a desire to help the nations people out of this crisis, not just a select few of them.

The prisons will continue to produce large numbers.

 

Unfortunately, deaths will continue to accumulate.

 

Away from Bangkok, the wave is clearly receding. Few cases in Chonburi, except for a couple small hotspots. 

Static numbers=decline in infections.🤣

So is a hotspot a place where infections in the community is out of control?The numbers of cases in Yasothon are not receding and is outside of Bangkok.

He forgets that hotspots in Bangkok are increasing which contradicts the assumption that there is a decline in infections outside of the existing ones

Morning thought:   Let's say the world uses 1 trillion masks that end up in the ocean, and this will be the catalyst for a much, much, much bigger problem.

 

OK, I'm ready for the vac.........

 

I'm also in a pretty secluded place now, so these numbers are only numbers.  When you get old, not every number can rise the blood pressure.   all i can do is wear a mask, wash my hands, and take it one day at a time...

Thailand’s AstraZeneca plan stumbles again as third wave rises

In October last year, the government chose the AstraZeneca vaccine as its main weapon against COVID-19. However, arming itself with AstraZeneca shots has proved difficult, and it now looks like the shortage will last longer than expected.

 

This week, top government figures stopped assuring the Thai public that millions of doses would be ready when mass vaccination starts in less than two weeks on June 7.

 

And on Wednesday, the Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) suspended the country’s main jab-booking platform, Mor Prom, on the pretext that other apps had been launched to respond to the fast-changing situation. CCSA promised that people who had already made Mor Prom bookings would get their jabs but stayed silent on whether this would be on their chosen date and locations.

Static overall numbers outside of prisons and Hotspots.

 

We saw that in Chonburi, where some clusters drove up the overall numbers, but now that the Hotspots are being eliminated, overall numbers are coming down. 

 

Not a hard concept to understand.

Yep. It is being reported daily. 

 

The process is that clusters of hospital walk in cases are investigated, contact tracing is performed, and if it seems that there are significant cases numbers, the mobile testing units are brought in for mass testing. Typically, a Hotspot will be a factory, construction site, or a neighborhood. These will be isolated, positive cases will be sent to a field hospital or hospital, and testing will continue until all positive cases are identified and treated. That eliminates the Hotspot.

112,354 infections and 826 deaths in 2 months and deaths this wk should pass 1000. No one can defend these figures which were in the most 100% avoidable.

At last, a voice of reason! 

 

All any of us can do is to keep taking every precaution necessary to protect ourselves and our families and hope that one day the Thai government stops faffing around with the vaccine rollout, although with regards to this, I'm not going to hold my breath...

Perhaps, but I don't think any country in the world, especially one with a high population like Thailand, has managed to avoid people dying in a pandemic.  In fact, some countries might consider a fatality rate like Thailand's a success.  Let's face it, Thailand seems to have avoided the catastrophic mistakes made in countries like the UK and US.

I think you'll find the countries that made mistakes like the UK and the USA recognise their mishandling of the pandemic although they may not admit it. The morons at the top here I truly believe think they're doing a super job. If you think Prayut etc are doing a great job that's up to you. If you think soon to be 1000 dead and rising and soon to be over 200,000 infections is doing a great job again that's up to you. If you think going from 117 to 84 in less than two months on the covid wordometer is indicative of doing a great job well, again that's up to you.

Thai Enquirer: “The ruling elites have split and that move by HRH Princess Chulabhorn has highlighted the royal anxiety over the government’s mishandling of the crisis. What this means in practice is that our government is no longer in control of its health care apparatus.”

Total frigging farce. 

 

Anutin and Prayut have no excuse for this mismanagement of the outbreak and vaccination procurement. 

 

High unemployment, business's closed, schools closed, economy at a standstill, food hand outs for those who were in the tourism sector. The social cost of all these deaths and those with serious conditions. All as a result of not containing this before Songkran and allowing travel over the holiday period.

 

The vaccine plan is in complete disarray and obviously communication between those in charge is lacking and strained which just about says it all.

Yes, Dominic Cummings' testimony will have ramifications in the UK!  I absolutely do not credit the Thai government with anything except, perhaps, closing the borders quite effectively back in March 2020 (even though it meant my wife and child were trapped in Laos for 5 months) and I would attribute Thailand's relative escape from the worst of Covid more down to luck than anything done by the government.  The monumental mistakes with vaccine policies have been unforgivable.

So do you have any info on which hotspots have been eliminated and do you realise that some of the variants currently circulating have an R0 value of 5 according to the Chief Health Officer of Victoria?That means that each infection has the potential of infecting 5 others.Do you know the numbers of close contacts that are being traced here in Thailand?Yesterday Melbourne traced 10,000 close contacts from 26 infections in a 24 hour period you can extrapolate that for Thailand to get a rough estimation of the numbers of close contacts Thailand would need to track and trace here, possibly hundreds of thousands each day.Do you think Thailand is tracing that number each day?

However, Anutin has said they will be arriving in time for vaccination on June 7th or did I read his statement wrong.

Only in your view and dreams. The spread continues from one Hotspot to the next. Stop fooling yourself.
