COVID-19 Spreads Fast in Far South

Recommended Posts



BANGKOK, Oct 11 (TNA) – Southern border provinces face worse COVID-19 outbreaks than greater Bangkok and the Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) urged local people to seek vaccinations because 60% of new fatalities in the far South never received a COVID-19 jab.


CCSA’s assistant spokesperson Dr. Apisamai Srirangson said a small number of people in southern border provinces had been vaccinated against COVID-19.


The COVID-19 infection rate was 22% in southern border provinces while the rate in greater Bangkok stood at 19%, she said.

wait, what?!


40% had been jabbed and still died?


jabbed with which vaccine?

now now, stop being logical and asking the obvious questions. Just as I would add that the article said  the infection rate was 19 vs 22 %.  Not a big difference.

Is the far south getting their vaccines, but not wanting them?  I would like to hear the whole story behind

the situation. If it is because they  are Muslim and do not want the vaccines, well I guess they are all

free to die, just like a few of my relatives that will not get the vaccine here in Canada. I will never understand

why people have had vaccines as children for many diseases, but now as adults, they will not.

I feel saddened by what has happened to my fellow residents in the deep south. I pray to God that people can accept the available vaccines in their hearts and minds and that the provinces may reopen to tourists soon.

What does "infection rate" mean? Percentage of positive cases from active testing, walk-in testing, ATK? (Yikes--percentage in the general population?!?)

Its not very clear I agree but in this instance they are referring to the daily positive case count of all PCR tests. The southern border provinces now make up a total of 22% of daily cases as opposed to Bangkok and its 5 bordering Provinces which make up 19%.. The rest is made up of all other Provinces
