Moderna Vaccines Will Arrive in November, Firm Says

 

BANGKOK — The longest pre-order of your life may soon be over: Moderna’s mRNA vaccine will start arriving in Thailand by November following months of delay, a distributor representative said.

 

Zuellig Pharma, the company responsible for distribution of the Moderna vaccine, said the doses will arrive in weekly shipments, starting in November. The firm did not give any precise date. Despite previous pledges, the Moderna vaccines failed to be delivered to Thailand this month, a cause of frustration for many Thais who already pre-ordered the vaccines from private hospitals and clinics.

More data would be interesting.  how many new cases were from vaccinated people or un vaccinated people?

 

Now for the numbers.  According to the article:

 

"Friday’s cases bring the total number of COVID-19 infections in Thailand to 1,762,190 with 18,123 deaths. "

 

18123/1762190 = 0.010284  or 1.020284 % mortality rate.  Now that only counts the known COVID cases and not the total number of COVID cases.  Many people have no symptoms, or few symptoms.  Many never go to hospital, many never take a test.  So it is reasonable assume that many more people had COVID than is reported, which means the actual mortality rate is lower.

The Department of Medical Sciences has been observing #COVID19 variants in #Thailand by running random genetic tests on viruses from around the country. It input the data in the GISAID and has just revealed the results.

So  Delta it is and the vast majority of Thais have been vaccinated with Sinovac largely ineffective against this variant.

 

Yep lets open to all tourists!

 

For the full virus experience book a holiday to Thailand for you and your family.

 

Covid spreading like wild fire available 24/7 nationwide ......but not alcohol .

Thailand’s prime minister has reasserted the country’s readiness to reopen to foreign visitors, and thanked all parties for their efforts leading up to this point. He also asked foreigners residing in Thailand to help spread the word about the country’s readiness.

In my opinion that is an extremely low sampling rate to be running genome sequencing to check for new variants.

The number of Covid-19 cases crossed 12.68 million across Southeast Asia, with 37,927 new cases reported on Thursday. #Asean #covid19 #TheNationThailand

 

https://www.nationthailand.com/international/40007523

Asean reported increasing new Covid-19 cases on Thursday

Thailand has by far, the most reported cases within the Asean Bloc again.

The Philippines with a population of 111 Million has about roughly 30 % fewer cases, and Thailand has a population of 70 Million.

However, Thailand reporting of Deaths is considerably lower than all the other Nations in relationship to their populations.

Since covid first took off in Thailand there has been nearly 40,000 excess deaths here compared with the usual annual death toll. Many suspect, including the Rural Doctors Assoc. in Thailand that the covid-19 death toll has been under reported.

Looking at the Asean reported Daily Cases Graphic will give you a clue on that one.

It makes sense. However, official Covid death numbers are very far from the excess mortality numbers (i.e. around 16,000 for the month of August, around 9,000 in September).

Someone said the first million doses will be grabbed by the Red Cross which has been subjected to at least one publicly revealed demand from the military to provide doses to officers and their families.

More Moderna, Pfizer vaccines to be procured by Thammasat University, private hospitals

 

Thammasat University has entered into agreements with two private hospitals to procure seven million doses of Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines, to be distributed to a network of private hospitals.

 

The university has also contacted a vaccine institute in an eastern European country, with the help of the Thai embassy there, to seek the donation of 3 million doses of Moderna vaccine.

 

On the Facebook page of Thammasat field hospital on Thursday, the university said that, in the past eight weeks, with the approval of the university’s council, they have been working hard to procure vaccines and other medical supplies for the Thai people and patients at Thammasat field hospital.
