Thailand on Monday (November 29) reported 4,753 new COVID-19 cases, 6,165 recoveries and 27 additional deaths over the past 24 hours. 

 

▶︎ Infections outside prisons: 4,696. Prisons: 57

▶︎ Recoveries: 6,165

▶︎ Total infections since April 1: 2,082,703

▶︎ Total recoveries since since April 1: 1,985,595

 

Monday’s cases bring the total number of COVID-19 infections in Thailand to 2,111,566 with 20,734 deaths.

 

The news comes as Europe is now experiencing a resurgence of COVID-19 outbreaks, notably in Austria, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and Italy. In Thailand, respected public health figures are also expressing concerns about a potential resurgence of outbreaks in December amidst cooler weather and increased movement of people.

 

Prof. Prasit Watanapa, the dean of the Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, explained that the World Health Organization is highly concerned about the spread of Covid in Europe at the moment and warned that 500,000 deaths could be incurred by March unless urgent action is taken.

 

He said studies show that outbreaks on one continent will spread to other continents in due course, but the death rate will be less than last year as the majority of people have been vaccinated.

I am more concerned about the lack of a spread of tourism because of the current reaction to Omicron, yet the Thai government is only concerned with cross border issues. Does someone see an issue here.

Are we still x10 on these dodgy figures?

It is a possibility as it has always been. I have just resolved myself to now going with the figures they spout plus ATK and knowing there is a lack of testing going on.

They are seeing that those in their 20's and 30's are being hit by this already.

“Young people, in their 20s to just over their late 30s, are coming in with moderate to severe disease, some needing intensive care. About 65% are not vaccinated and most of the rest are only half-vaccinated,” said Mathivha. “I’m worried that as the numbers go up, the public health care facilities will become overwhelmed.”

Something weird about this article. theborderconsortium.org does not show a Camp 1, and I've been to a few of the camps and never heard of it. The two camps closest to Mae Hong Son don't fit the two hour driving description. Is it outside the system? Also the camps do not look like the photo. OK, idk.

According to the latest statistics, 57% of the population are regarded as “fully vaccinated”. But is that really true? How many of the people who got Sinovac + Sinovac months ago have had their booster jab and so are still fully vaccinated? After all, only 4.6% have had 3 jabs.

That's not what it sounds like from this doctor, but lets hope that this is a fast and mild variant that comes and goes like the common cold.
