Good to see another fall in the official number of new infections and deaths.

Latest data from the worldometer ranking table for deaths/million of population over the past 7 days shows Thailand remaining at 69th in the world, 22 places below the UK.


Same table shows Thailand 13th in Asia, three places below the Philippines and 3 places above Vietnam. 


The number of deaths over the past week remains at 7 deaths/million of population, down 17% over the 7 day period, with the number of official infections also falling 8%

69 Thailand 66,781 72,817 -8% 954 482 582 -17% 7 70,029,772


Over 40% of the population overall now been fully vaccinated, with higher numbers in some of the targeted tourist resorts in preparation for next months quarantine free opening.

Phuket health authorities are reporting only 92 new local cases today , five cases from the Sandbox and no deaths. There are 1,450 patients in care . The #PhuketSandbox has had 177 cases since 1st July #COVID19 #โควิด19 #โควิดวันนี้ #Thailand




5 sandbox cases, at what time during their stay did they test positive? Would be a question that needs to be answered.

Thailand 154 in the world for testing

144 places below the UK

21 places behind Vietnam

10 places behind Philippines

Your link shows actually Thailand 41 places behind Vietnam (154-113) so point well made. The other two are correct.

And still at 24 for the overall total cases since the start as well.


And 11th overall for the past 7 days cases.





There are so many different metrics that can be used in worldometers however each and everyone of them is reliant on the testing data to output their data set,
How accurate or truthful case numbers, deaths etc are solely based on the testing.


When you have a position of 154th in the world then that needs to be taken into account otherwise we could have countries such as Tanzania be shown as a model to the world. No problem however Thailand is only one place below Zambia in testing.


Why the CCSA in their daily slides also uses the overall ranking the same as above 24.

And yes when you look at the deaths per million of population they are 69th overall.

Thanks for the confirmation, and  as has been stated regularly by many on these forums, the death numbers are the most reliable trend to follow.

The number of Covid-19 cases crossed 13 million across Southeast Asia, with 30,022 new cases reported on Sunday. #Asean #COVID19 #TheNationThailand



Asean reported over 30,000 new Covid-19 cases on Sunday

Thailand still has 30 % of all the reported cases in the Asean Bloc.

Double the percentage of any other Nation.

It would seem as if there are many more Nations in Asean that are in a much better position to open up their Countries to Tourists.
