It has not yet been detected in Thailand, according to Public Health Permanent Secretary Dr. Opart Karnkawinpong. He said today (Thursday) that the dominant sub-variant in Thailand is currently BA.2.75, but the number of cases is dropping as XBB.1.5 and XBB.1.9.1 are on the rise. Dr. Opart said that the XBB.1.16 is rising rapidly in India and is likely to emerge as the dominant sub-variant in the country, but there is no evidence that it is more severe than other sub-variants. In Thailand, 150 new COVID-19 cases were reported between March 19th and 25th, averaging 21 new cases a day. 30 of them are suffering from lung infections, 19 require ventilators and six people have died.
