Thailand on Friday (January 28) reported 8,450 new COVID-19 cases, 7,484 recoveries and 28 additional deaths over the past 24 hours. 

 

▶︎ Infections outside prisons: 8,239. Prisons: 211

▶︎ Recoveries: 7,484

 

Friday’s cases bring the total number of COVID-19 infections in Thailand to 2,415,472 with 22,126 deaths.

 

The news comes as Thailand’s National Communicable Disease Committee has agreed on the conditions which must be met for COVID-19 to be categorised as endemic disease in Thailand, said Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul said Thursday.

 

To meet the criteria, new COVID-19 infections must not exceed 10,000 a day, the mortality rate must be less than 0.1% of the infection rate, the hospitalisation must less than 10% of the infection rate and more than 80% those at high risk of developing serious symptoms must have received at least two doses of vaccine and the general population must have developed sufficient immunity.

Questions raised over plan to categorise COVID-19 as endemic in Thailand

Not sure it needed a study to know this..................

 

Thai study makes strong case for use of mRNA vaccine as booster dose

 

The study found that those given the Sinopharm vaccine had 22 times lower immunity against the Delta and Omicron strains of both imitated and real virus samples than those given the mRNA vaccine. Those who were given the viral vector vaccine as a booster dose also enjoyed higher immunity than those given an inactivated vaccine, Yong added.

 

“In conclusion, using AZ and mRNA vaccines [Pfizer or Moderna] as a booster dose provides better protection against the Delta and Omicron strains and this is a method being practised in Thailand,” Yong said.

 

He will also send the result to other international medical journals for publication.

The first evaluation period before declaring Covid-19 as endemic will be in February, Health Minister Anutin said on Friday. (1/3)

 

Currently, children under the age of 12 have not been vaccinated, and only 20% of the population have received three doses so it’s still too early to declare the disease as endemic at the moment. (2/3)

 

The minister added that Thailand hopes to become a "Covid Free Country" with zero Covid deaths from having high vaccine rates and enough medical supplies. (3/3)

Wow ! They really pushed the Boat out today and tested 379 Thai Citizens.

50 more than each of the previous 2 Days.

However the Foreigner Infections are really high again in comparison to the local Infections.

But there is no need to worry

Omicron is not as Infectious or Dangerous as Delta, and thats why the Hospitals in the USA are rammed to capacity, even breaking the Infections of the Delta Outbreak there.

Wishful thinking, don't think there will ever be a time when there is zero covid and zero deaths. That's like saying there is zero seasonal flu and zero deaths from flu or dengue fever.
