The drop in death rates is a particularly good sign which suggests that the vaccination programme is beginning to have a positive affect.

 

There is also another positive sign from the US in the form of an antiviral medication which could contribute to the reduction in deaths and serious illness.

Rapid tests positive cases, 2,906 bringing the unofficial total to 14,281

Realize most likely been previously asked.....

So with the Rapid tests how do other countries deal with these. 

For example the chart that @anchadian posts each day with cases/deaths etc from ASEAN countries how to compare.

So today's chart shows Thailand 11,744 and Vietnam 6,957.

Does Vietnam also not count it's Rapid test results. 

I'm aware that some of the Rapid tests for Thailand may be subsequently included.

There’s a number of good therapeutics showing promising signs, this one developed by Merck could be one of those but carries a hefty price tag of $700 per course. doubtful they will relinquish rights to other countries to manufacture cheaply unfortunately.

with indonesia posting a sub 100 death number (per a chart in this thread), that suggests we might see a 25 number here in thailand (adjusting for population) in the not too distant future.  indonesia was peaking a couple weeks before thailand (mid august versus late august).  not all death charts are the same but most of the charts for southeast asia look similar, indonesia, thailand, vietnam, and malaysia.  philippines is an outlier, an odd pattern.  but the drop off in the death numbers on the way down is typically as steep as the rise in deaths was so the fall can be surprisingly fast.  hope we follow indonesia and see 25 in two weeks.

From that same BBC report I read:

 

'The company (Merck) said it is in ongoing discussion with other countries, including the UK, and has also agreed licensing deals with a number of generic manufacturers to supply the treatment to low and middle-income countries'. 

 

That's a promising sign.

it is a very promising sign for the world and how it learns to live with covid in the future, I see it needs to be taken when symptoms are in early stages so this is a medication that would need to be readily available quickly to patients for it to be useful. Fingers crossed Thailand actually makes the effort to investigate its potential and has the resources to get some for next year.

This is indeed a game changer development in the fight against covid. Vaccine hesitant folks most likely to take a pill than a jab. Heard Pfizer also developing similar anti viral pill. I am sure other big pharmaceuticals are also in their various stages of such development. Will help push price down.

Cooperation is the driving force in surviving the pandemic

 

Volunteers have been playing a crucial role in keeping Thailand’s health system working and have helped save lives, admitted Assistant Secretary-General of National Health Security Office, Dr. Yupadee Sirisinsuk.

 

She said that, when the COVID-19 outbreak was at its peak in July this year, the health service system in Thailand was close to collapse. The authorities decided they had to introduce a new model of care, home and community isolation (HI-CI). The volunteers, who had been helping vulnerable people long before that, also helped to close the gaps in the system.

Students to start getting their Pfizer jabs from Monday onwards

 

The drive to deliver Pfizer jabs to all students aged between 12 and 17 across the nation kicks off on Monday, the Department of Disease Control (DDC) announced earlier this week.

 

Pfizer is the only brand approved by the Thai Food and Drug Administration for children of this age group. The department aims to inoculate 5.4 million students nationwide this month before schools reopen in November.

Some Koh Larn residents to get a third Covid-19 vaccine shot as booster prior to planned November “opening”

 

The Pattaya City Mayor Sonthaya Khunplome told The Pattaya News earlier this week, “People on Koh Larn who have already get their first and second dose of a Sinovac vaccine from March to May will receive a third dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine. This is due to concerns about efficacy over time, as well as the severe importance of Koh Larn to the tourism economy as Pattaya plans to reopen to foreign vaccinated tourists in November.”

 

TPN media notes that the planned “opening” is not yet official and still needs several levels of final approval.

Covid threat looms over Thailand's plans to open up to tourists

 

Why is the Thai government proceeding so cautiously? The simple answer is vaccines and the limited number of ICU beds.

 

Despite significantly ramping up its orders of vaccines, the government started late and is still a long way short of its official target of inoculating at least 70% of the population.

 

By the end of September just over one quarter had received two doses, and many of those who received the less effective Sinovac vaccine are now having to get booster shots.

I’ve got the mortality per million population as 12 in the weekly trends same as you but can’t see any other metrics that reflect the other rankings you mentioned, can you screenshot?

 

Weekly Trends

Thailand overall currently sitting at 10

Thailand overall deaths per population sitting at 63

Thailand Asia currently sitting at 6

Thailand Asia deaths per population sitting at 12

I dont really think the Thai Government is proceeding cautiously in the least.

With this push to reopen so many places on November 1st, to try and save the high season, they are proceeding at a reckless abandon IMO.

Already the assumption is the outbreak is fully over, yet there are on average about 14,000 cases per Day throughout September.

Yes, the Country does need to reopen. Of that fact we are all certain, but this opening is just a little too soon, and should be put back at least another Month or so to get the Vaccines into people.

Tourists, are not going to travel to Thailand with its poor vaccination rate, with the thought of possibly picking up Covid again whist on Holiday, and being placed in a Covid Prison for the duration.

Governments are also going to place barriers in the way of Thai Tourism. They certainly dont need people returning from a Jolly in LOS bringing back a Virus from Thailand, that due to very poor testing, could be a new Variant etc.

Question for @AstraZeneca and Siam Bioscience.

 

The European Medical Agency says Thai SBS vaccine is not approved because it has never been asked to inspect the SBS plant. Also AFAIK no clinical trials were run on locally-made AZ vaccine. So, harder for it to be accepted overseas.

I'm sure they will answer your inquiry promptly. Brb
