Thailand on Thursday (December 9) reported 4,203 new COVID-19 cases, 7,939 recoveries and 49 additional deaths over the past 24 hours. 

 

▶︎ Infections outside prisons: 4,161. Prisons: 42

▶︎ Recoveries: 7,939

▶︎ Total infections since April 1: 2,127,724

▶︎ Total recoveries since since April 1: 2,047,662

 

Thursday’s cases bring the total number of COVID-19 infections in Thailand to 2,156,587 with 21,084 deaths.

 

The news comes as Thailand’s Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) announced Wednesday that a second and third case of COVID-19 Omicron infection have been detected in Thailand in two unvaccinated Thai women, who returned to the country from Nigeria on November 24th.

 

Both entered quarantine upon arrival and tested positive for COVID-19, just two days before the World Health Organisation formally announced the emergence of Omicron. Their infections came ahead of Thailand’s first known case of the Omicron variant, a 35-year-old American businessman arriving from Spain and then Dubai on November 29th, as announced by the CCSA on Monday.

A bump upwards in both cases and deaths.  Let's hope it was an anomaly. However on comparison to prior weeks the graph looks very similar.

I wouldn't make too much of it. The number seems to fluctuate within a range, generally climbing a bit at the end of the week. Hospitalization data isn't much good for analyzing anything probably ICU and ventilator numbers are the go.

A lack of testing is also an issue.  Many around us believe the crisis is over and are wandering around without masks. The kids are playing outside in Lumpini Park on the equipment without masks or adhering to the posted signs. Complacency again.....

Yet here in the sticks, mask compliance is still very, very high. No sign of any of the local schools reopening, the teachers are still handing out homework once a week. Yesterday they apparently said moves are afoot to reopen. Rinse and repeat. I'd say the vaccination rate has gone up, but still nowhere near where it needs to be, many of the older ones around here without smartphones etc, haven't had it yet. Only anecdotal, but we had an out break in Chantaburi, about 2 months ago, seems to have died off now, yesterday's markets were very busy. Lots of Cambodians around.

4th Omicron case being sequenced now.  It was only a matter of time before more cases popped up. These are imported, waiting for the first real homegrown case to show up.

 

Daughter in the US seeing cases but most are minor symptoms like a cold.

The Coronavirus Attacks Fat Tissue, Scientists Find

 

Maybe you should have stuck to that diet after all 😂

 

From the start of the pandemic, the coronavirus seemed to target people carrying extra pounds. Patients who were overweight or obese were more likely to develop severe Covid-19 and more likely to die...[S]cientists have become increasingly convinced that their vulnerability has something to do with obesity itself.

 

Now researchers have found that the coronavirus infects both fat cells and certain immune cells within body fat, prompting a damaging defensive response in the body.

How quickly is it spreading?

The answer seems to be fast.

And that applies even in places where there are high levels of immunity, either through vaccination or big waves of Covid in the past.

 

South Africa had seen the end of its Delta wave and was averaging less than 300 cases a day a month ago. Now it's more than 10,000 with Omicron seemingly the driving force behind their fourth wave.

I read that, interesting article it attacks the fatty tissue apparently. It is however something that some people find difficult to avoid, those with diabetes etc its not all just down to over eating, that said for those that are obese for no other reason than eating I agree fully.

Just looked that up, yes seems your right, its more to do with Type 1

 

Weight gain is a common symptom of diabetes and other insulin-related medical conditions. Compared with people who do not have diabetes, young adults with type 1 diabetes have a higher risk of developing excess body weight or obesity.

Yes Type 1 is genetic (and rare); Type 2 is from very bad eating habits (and unfortunately now very common - almost unheard-of 100 years ago.)
