Thailand on Tuesday (October 5) reported 9,869 new COVID-19 cases, 11,152 recoveries and 92 additional deaths over the past 24 hours.

 

◼︎ 11,152 recoveries

◼︎ 9,596 new infections 

◼︎ 273 prison / prison infections

 

▶︎ Total infections since April 1: 1,628,368

▶︎ Total recoveries since since April 1: 1,504,229

 

Tuesday’s cases bring the total number of COVID-19 infections in Thailand to 1,657,231 with 17,203 deaths.

 

The news comes as Thailand's government is in talks with U.S. drugmaker Merck & Co to purchase 200,000 courses of the company's experimental antiviral pill for COVID-19 treatment, a Thai official said on Monday.

 

Many Asian countries are scrambling to lock in supplies of the potential treatment early after they lagged behind Western nations in COVID-19 vaccine rollouts, hit by tight supplies.

 

South Korea, Taiwan and Malaysia said they are all in talks to buy Merck's potential treatment, while the Philippines, which is running a trial on the pill, said it hopes its domestic study would allow access to the treatment.

Good to see number of daily cases and deaths continue to fall, along with the number of patients in serious  condition and on ventilators. 
 

Also encouraging to see the official number of recoveries far exceeding the number of new cases. 
 

With vaccinations closing in on 30% fully jabbed, it seems it may already having an affect on the bottom line numbers.

The report marked that of the COVID patients in care only 35 were designated as ‘Red patients’ (zero change since Sept 15 report)

11,834 covid cases to 83 deaths leads to a current CFR of 0.07%

Looking again at the declining number of cases versus other countries who had the sharp rise from Delta has become even more of a question as to why the slow decline here in Thailand.  Almost all of the other countries have tested large numbers of people, had larger percentages vaccinated, and with that comes the lower positivity rate.  Thus from what I can see the decline in cases is a combination of Lockdowns, social distancing measures, vaccinations, and testing to see how wide spread cases may be.  With the lower amounts of testing, and only really testing those who are walk-ins and close contacts, then not adding in the ATK positive tests as actual cases as well as fewer vaccinations could give reason to the slow decline.  One has to wonder if they included all people tested regardless what that downward part of the curve would actually look like.  Just a view I had after perusing some other graphs from other countries on the Worldometer listings.  It also seems that the reporting from other countries as far as the surrounding countries cases and variants has gone quiet at this point in time.  Not hearing much on the MU variant or others they were tracking.

Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine effectiveness drops after 6 months, study shows

Thailand currently sitting at 65th in the worldometer ranking table over the past 7 days at 11 deaths/million of population, one place below the Philippines and two places below the UK 

 

Deaths have fallen 18% and new cases 9% over the same period. 
 

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/weekly-trends/#weekly_table

From the same worldometers aggregate site. 
 

Thailand 153rd in the world for least covid testing.

13th in Asia for weekly deaths per million population and 6th in Asia for the overall impact of covid.

True. Why are the numbers in Thailand falling so slowly? 

I compared Japan recently. Their numbers have fallen from 25,000 to just 1,000 in around 5 weeks with no lockdown & students in school. Fully vaccinated around 60%.

Benefits of Pfizer far outweigh the risk, says DDC chief, as vaccination drive for students continues

 

The Public Health Ministry said it will continue giving male students their first Pfizer jab but will monitor them for side effects in line with recommendations from Thailand’s Royal College of Paediatricians.

 

 

 

Opas Karnkawinpong, director-general of the Department of Disease Control (DDC), said symptoms of myocarditis and pericarditis, or inflammation of the heart muscle and pericardium, were detected in some of the 12 to 17-year-old boys who had received the mRNA vaccine.

 

“In Thailand, four out of 130,000 boys who received two Pfizer jabs developed myocarditis, so we have decided to double-jab female students and give male students just one jab. We believe the benefits of the vaccine far outweigh the side effects,” he said.

So that's what about 846k.

That's bit over one day supply with the # of vaccinations stated given most days.

The number of Covid-19 cases crossed 12.29 million across Southeast Asia, with 39,566 new cases reported on Monday (October 4), lower than Sunday’s tally at 43,584. New deaths are at 566, increasing from Sunday’s number of 550. Total Covid-19 deaths in Asean are now at 265,236.

 

https://www.nationthailand.com/international/40007029

Asean reported over 39,000 Covid-19 cases on Monday

If anybody thought that the Covid Outbreak in Thailand was either under control, or had run its course , look at this Graphic of the Asean Nations.

Thailand has the worst infection numbers by a country Mile in the Asean Bloc of Countries.

The only Country that posted more Infections was the Philippines, which has a population of just over 111 Million. That is about 60 % higher than the population of Thailand at 70 Million.

Yet the Philippines Infection number was only 8 % higher than the Thai Infection number.

And some people as well as the Government in Thailand still query why Thailand  is Red Listed by the UK

It is one of the reasons that I look at the graph and the declining number with skepticism as I stated in my earlier post, and makes me wonder if what we are seeing as a decline will continue or bottom out at a given point before possibly going upwards again.

I  also look at the various Graphs and Charts , not just with skepticism, but also with a large pinch of distrust.

All the numbers seem to fit the agenda, and that really is playing with fire.

The Thai people deserve better than this from their Government.
