Thailand on Monday (January 24) reported 7,139 new COVID-19 cases, 8,100 recoveries and 13 additional deaths over the past 24 hours. 

 

▶︎ Infections outside prisons: 6,944. Prisons: 195

▶︎ Recoveries: 8,100

 

Monday’s cases bring the total number of COVID-19 infections in Thailand to 2,384,639 with 22,045 deaths.

 

The news comes as the Omicron variant of the virus that causes COVID-19 is now being detected in all provinces of Thailand, with health authorities expecting almost every new coronavirus infection to stem from the new strain by the end of this month.

 

Dr Supakit Sirilak, director-general of the Department of Medical Sciences, said 86.8% of 3,711 samples analyzed from January 11 to 17 are of the Omicron variant, while only 13.2% are the Delta variant.

 

If specimens are limited to the 1,437 samples collected from international travelers during the period, 96.9% were Omicron and just 3.1% were Delta. Of the 2,274 samples collected from domestic transmission cases, Omicron made up 80.4% of samples while Delta was 19.6%.

So in a country of 70 million people, where the most contagious version of covid by far is found in every single province, official testing has found only 7000 cases. Truly remarkable.

I'm sure being one of the last to get a chunk of the population vaccinated (higher amount of antibodies than countries who vaccinated their population early last year) is helping but I'm also sure many thousands are going unreported each day as well. ICU/Ventilated are dropping/remaining stable so that's a good indicator that most cases are still mild and the vaccine is helping.

Also amazing that, in spite of bars across the city being open and often stuffed with customers, the number of daily new cases in Pattaya continues to fall. Must be the beer that reaches parts viruses cannot reach, lol.

Thailand’s digital minister in hospital for COVID-19 treatment

 

He said that he might have contracted the disease while visiting the northern province of Chiang Mai last Thursday, adding that he now has a fever and mild headache, but his lungs are normal.

 

The prime minister was given his second booster shot (fourth dose) using the Pfizer vaccine and took an RT-PCR test last Friday prior to leaving Bangkok for Saudi Arabia tomorrow morning.

France reporting some 400,000 cases daily cases. 

 

Every single country seeing figures through the roof. 

 

The problem with Thailand is that it does not do community testing, and discourages people coming forward with a positive test because of the risk of being put into a field with a mattress for 14 days. 

 

The irony being the only place they do community active testing for covid is for tourists - which drives a mass amount of their economy. 

The testing is indeed abysmal. They don't even seem to go into some high risk community and test a few thousand people to find out the positivity rate. So it seems like they have no idea of the spread and thus no idea of the risk to vulnerable individuals.

 

I know that many workplaces (Homepro and Citibank, for example) have their staff do weekly ATK tests. But the positive cases they find may never be reported -- they just have the individuals self-isolate for 5 days.

 

For all we know, Thailand might be just like France.

Well for Banglamung it appears so.... yet anecdotal evidence suggests more are getting sick. One hears a lot of places are short of staff.

If they were that worried about the vulnerable in the population they would have prioritized them for vaccines over the younger and those working in tourist destinations. The only elderly prioritized were the generals in charge.
