Thailand on Thursday (October 14) reported 11,276 new COVID-19 cases, 10,407 recoveries and 112 additional deaths over the past 24 hours. 

 

◼︎ 10,407 recoveries

◼︎ 11,142 new infections 

◼︎ 134 prison / prison infections

 

▶︎ Total infections since April 1: 1,722,841

▶︎ Total recoveries since since April 1: 1,598,324

 

Thursday’s cases bring the total number of COVID-19 infections in Thailand to 1,751,704 with 18,029 deaths.

 

The news comes as The Department of Disease Control said there has yet to be any official report of adverse side-effects following COVID-19 vaccination in youth with the Pfizer vaccine, while urging younger people not to believe fake news circulating online.

 

The Department of Disease Control (DDC) has provided an update on the national inoculation campaign, particularly on the progress of vaccine rollout for younger people.

 

Thai health authorities earlier this month launched the vaccination drive among adolescents aged 12-18 years old, with the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine being the only available vaccine receiving emergency use authorization for this age group.

Numbers up again with highest number of PCR community cases since the 2nd Oct and covid deaths back into triple digits. This comes as field hospitals in Pattanai are up to full capacity with 4,000 bed

Enjoy these low numbers, once the schools go back and they relax the social restrictions on bars and other venues to attract foreign tourists, we'll soon be at 30,000 to 40,000 new cases a day, though

Tills ringing at King Power duty free is what it's all about. Caution thrown to the wind, with a Thai population barely 30% fully vaccinated. Delta's licking it's lips.

The new normal.  Both my kid's school and where I teach have been told they can reopen for face-to-face classes but need MOE approval which is taking forever!  I was hoping it might be from 1 November, but even that looks like it might be delayed.  Education doesn't even seem to be a priority with the MOE!

Chamber of Commerce suggests increasing vaccination rate before reopening the country

 

“Private entrepreneurs who have been serving as vaccination units outside the hospitals are ready to support the campaign to provide 2nd and 3rd jabs to as many people as possible,” said TCC chairman Sanan Angubolkul on Wednesday. “Furthermore, the government must push out Covid-free setting measures to help strengthen the confidence of foreign visitors in Thailand’s safety, such as providing free ATK testing periodically to detect new cluster cases before they escalate.”

Your wing up the elevators at Central World was the only place not filled with people yesterday. We went up to see a friend on the 15th floor.  Hope the MOE gets moving for school openings. The GF's daughter did her entire first term online.

Moderna, Racing for Profits, Keeps Covid Vaccine Out of Reach of Poor

 

Some poorer countries are paying more and waiting longer for the company’s vaccine than the wealthy — if they have access at all.

 

Thailand and Colombia are paying a premium. Botswana’s doses are late. Tunisia couldn’t get in touch with Moderna.

sure why not just give everyone a big double dose all at once - I am sure Thai doctor would endorse the idea if told to do so and think of the time it would save getting everyone double dosed - just give it in one shot - yippie

And with the obvious lack of any serious testing being carried out, what other nasties are lurking around and waiting to pounce on this unsuspecting Country.

From that link:

 

According to the minister, visitors will need to present evidence of full inoculation against COVID-19 as well as a pre-departure test result for COVID-19. They will need to take an RT-PCR test upon arrival in Thailand and must spend the first night at an Alternative State Quarantine (ASQ) facility or an authorized hotel to wait for the test result. 

 

So down to one nights quarantine, if this is what goes ahead the claims made yesterday including by Thai Airways urging people to book flights that Thailand is opening to quarantine free travel on the 1st Nov are false.

 

Sorry Brian, replaced that link as it was already in the main news section.
Other link, same details as above.

Well, with Thailand's record for having their databases hacked, I think we can see this turning into yet another fustercluck!! Yet another attempt at the digital age and reliance on a system that will spend more time crashing than operating properly.

 Either you are opening up the country or not!! As things stand at the moment you have more chance of catching Covid here than bringing it in. Yet another absolute joke from this headless chicken mob!!
