Thailand on Friday (October 22) reported 9,810 new COVID-19 cases, 10,513 recoveries and 66 additional deaths over the past 24 hours. 

 

▶︎ Total infections since April 1: 1,802,526

▶︎ Total recoveries since since April 1: 1,683,021

 

Friday’s cases bring the total number of COVID-19 infections in Thailand to 1,831,389 with 18,625 deaths.

 

The news comes as Thailand will let vaccinated visitors from 46 countries forgo COVID-19 quarantine from next month, up from 10 previously announced, Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha said on Thursday.

 

The Southeast Asian country is poised to introduce the new quarantine-free travel arrangements on Nov. 1 as it seeks to revive its vital tourism industry.

 

The 46 countries include Britain, the United States, China, Singapore, Germany and Australia, according to the ministry of foreign affairs.

Weekly WHO Thailand Situation Report

 

The number of new COVID-19 cases reported on a daily basis, the total number of all active cases as well as the numbers of severe and ventilated cases (reflecting healthcare burden) and the number of reported deaths in Thailand are all decreasing, and have reduced substantially from the peak in August.

 

However, the rate of decrease of all these ‘indicators’ has slowed significantly and in absolute terms the numbers remain high - many times greater than the previous peak in the 3rd wave between April and June 2021.

 

The situation in Southern Thailand also continues to be of concern. Today, 1,010 cases were reported in Bangkok, but the five Provinces with the next highest case counts were Yala (653), Nakhon Si Thammarat (630), Songkhla (627), Pattani (543) and Narathiwat (374), so that these five Provinces accounted for 29% of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Thailand. Local and national authorities continue efforts to implement public health and social measure and increase vaccination coverage.

 

Fractional dose of COVID-19 vaccines

 

Currently not enough is known to be able to say if fractional dosages offer the amount of COVID-19 protection needed and so WHO does not currently recommend fractional COVID-19 dosing for third shots. WHO is continuing to monitor the evidence and will provide updates as more research becomes available.

It does indeed look like, and I said look like, the numbers are very slowly trending downward, yet when you add in the ATK positive tests we are still above the 10K range of daily infections.  The vaccinations have indeed picked up, but I am not sure they will manage to get to the 70% by the end of the year they were shooting for.

 

I know there are over 5 million folks waiting on the purchased Moderna to arrive for their first jabs and when that does happen the numbers will go up.

 

Yesterday when I popped into MedPark hospital to pick up my new certificate of vaccination that has a working QR code, I saw an international school bus parked at the curb.  Talking to the driver he was waiting for a group of teachers he had brought in to be vaccinated to return so he could bring more back in the afternoon.  Good to see the schools, at least the international ones are ensuring the teachers are vaccinated.

 

Lets see what todays CCSA meeting brings, as the Transport Minister has now put forth a proposal for those living in the country and who wish to travel domestically by air and train that will equal the requirements they are imposing on international travelers as far as being vaccinated and testing negative before traveling.

By 70% do you mean single jab, double jab or tripple jabbed for those double jabbed with sinovac? I got my 2nd AZ Tues morning at one of the local temples. Changed it to there from Bang Sue. Side effects no where near like the 1st jab but had an absolutely splitting headache that night and the headache continued on and off but today seems to finished. 1st jab side effects were pretty bad for 3 days. This time headache for 2 days.

I believe the Thai Government and Anutin were shooting for 70% fully vaccinated by the end of the year, and a poster who has been idle for a few days would always quote the vaccination records and how they were on track.  Looking at the numbers they are posting there is a fair number of folks that are getting a booster now over some that have never been vaccinated as of yet. 

 

The GF will get her second jab coming up, so at least I was successful in arranging for her to obtain one.

I am still trying to find out what I am supposed to do with my Antigen Test Kit after it has been used, if negative do I throw it in the trash, mail it to MOPH or what.  No ones answering the number I was given at the pharmacy, and I forgot to ask when I dropped by MedPark hospital yesterday.

Not only have the ATK test published numbers dropped dramatically from the rapid rise to its peak on 10 th October, but there also now appears to be a further downward trend in the reporting of ATK tests to only about 50 - 60 % of the peak value that was only 12 Days ago,

Strange, considering how cheap and easily obtainable the tests are now.

I have to use an ATK today before a dentist appointment tomorrow. They said to bag the kit and then return to them. So, I would assume the best thing would be for you to drop the used kit at the Hospital as it counts as clinical waste. Hope this helps.

They need another 30% done in 2 and a bit months to get to 70% fully vaxed by the end of year. Reducing the time between AZ shots from 12 wks as directed by the manufacturer for maximum efficacy to 3 wks has certainly accelerated things but means these people will not be covered for as long. 6 months after 2nd jab. I know someone that got their 1st jab some wks after my 1st jab but got their 2nd 3 wks later. I should be covered for an extra 4 months than they are.

Now at 40% fully vaxed I think Thailand may hold the record of openning with the lowest % of population fully vaxed.

Just been informed by the wife that there are 341 cases in Prachuap Khiri Khan today.  Over 200 cases in Pranburi and 19 in Bang Saphan!

Hua Hin Today does not give a report everyday unfortunately so have to rely on other sources.

But this does now show that some of the provinces still have major problems with Nov 1st approaching.

I'm not sure 5 million are still waiting for their first jabs. Some of them will be waiting for a booster next year surely.

Awww thanks for the mention, nice to see you’ve been missing me, and thanks for the diary update too. 
 

Yes, I believe they are still on track to meet the predicted 70% fully vaccinated by year end as well as being fully open for tourism by year end ………2021 as predicted.

Thai Rural Doctor Society explains why only 14% of the Lepu ATKs delivered to southern provinces were distributed

 

Most people in the country’s four southern border provinces, including local hospitals, have rejected the Chinese-made Lepu rapid antigen test kits (ATKs), despite the continuing COVID-19 surge in the region, claimed the Rural Doctor Society of Thailand (RDS).

 

In its Facebook post today (Friday), the RDS said that the National Health Security Office (NHSO), which had procured 8.5 million Lepu ATKs from China at a cost of about one billion baht, have delivered a total of 1,022,500 of them to Yala, Pattani, Narathiwat and Songkhla for free distribution to the public and health facilities, but only 141,988 units, or 14%, were received by people at high-risk who have mild symptoms or who are in close contact with the infected.

Just to confirm what I posted earlier as Hua Hin Today has caught up.

 

Health officials on Friday (Oct 22) reported 341 new COVID-19 cases, 57 were found in Hua Hin.

Elsewhere in the province, 236 cases were found in Pranburi, 1 case in Sam Roi Yot, No- case in Kuiburi, No-case found in Thap Sakae, 19 cases in Bang Saphan, 2 cases in Bang Saphan Noi, and 26 cases in Mueang Prachuap Khiri Khan.

One more death was reported today, a Thai man age 62-years-old, who lived in Muang Prachuap district, who did not have an underlying disease but what also not vaccinated.
