● Thursday’s cases bring the total number of COVID-19 infections in Thailand to 207,724 with 1,555 deaths.
(Total infections since April 1: 178,861)


The news comes as Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha declared Wednesday that Thailand will fully reopen its borders within four months, as the country is to begin welcoming fully vaccinated foreign tourists, starting with the southern resort island of Phuket on July 1st.

As a prison visitor for many years, I am concerned at the continuing high numbers of infections in the jails. It seems that no effort whatsoever is being made to thwart its spread. I would also like v

Yes, It just keeps on moving along, as well as the deaths...so how can the country open up in 120 days like the good PM said last night.  How will tourists, whose own country might keep them from comi

Sorry those numbers are way above the reporting threshold so you probably won't see them.

The increase to 2600 community infections was predicted by the recent increase in hospital walk-in cases.

 

If you watch the numbers for walk-in cases,  they will provide an insight into near term infection numbers.  
 

This is based on the premise that the government tests contacts of positive cases, and thus can uncover clusters. They don’t test where there are no contacts.

It doesn’t matter - if hospital walk-in cases reach 2500+ cases a day, everyone will know that community infections are far higher.

Delta variant...........

 

You will see how ineffective the Sinovac vaccine is in due course I believe.  Prepare for 3000 and 4000 and 5000 cases daily before too many more weeks pass.


i definitely agree with you point.

 

they will never increase testing from current levels and so if we see those sort of numbers it means the infection rate is climbing. Testing numbers will stay the same (no up to date data available but seems to be in the 20k to 30k per day range)

I would also like very much, given the prison numbers are reported separately to the country, to know the fatality numbers, which I suspect will be disproportionately high to the rest of the population.

See this article.

I wonder how unwell the folk are feeling that causes them to report to a hospital.

 

I also wonder how many try and 'wait it out' at home.

 

I realize this may sound like a crazy comment however I'm not sure what I would do if I had symptoms. 

You are correct. A certain percent won’t go to the hospital, even if they are sick.

 

What you forget is that we are dealing with large numbers. So, if X% won’t go to the hospital under any condition, if reported walk-in cases double, we know that the number of community infections likely has doubled.

Testing is the issue for the number of cases found in Thailand . 

 

You mean the lack of testing is the issue for the low numbers.  I do agree with that sentiment.

Think you missed my point. 

It's the X% number that is critical.
