    If you stick a cotton swab far enough into the Nasal cavity you could probably find tuberculosis, ebola, black plague, ecoli, staph, strep, salmonella and God knows what else.

    Our bodies have immune systems, and we have a whole host of viruses and bacteria that when you’re healthy remain in balance and in control.

    The covid 19 bs is getting really old.

    If it’s a bad flu now, in a year or 2 it will become an annoying head cold as it mutates and its goal is to integrate with the host, not kill it.

    Agreed Jack. Don’t go telling too many truths pal!
    Nobody around here can even prove yet that the con-vid even exists yet!
    Try asking that around, and what do you get back? “Uhh, it was on TV!”

    Even the cov-idiots are running round telling us it’s all ‘doom’ and ‘gloom’ (must be working for a TV channel!) and how we must be fearful and afraid!
    Remember “duck and cover?” Straight out of the same rule book. 😉

    This is just the beginning. I’m afraid that Thailand are going to see COVID numbers like Europe in near future. Especially if they relax the restrictions further.

    Also this is a sign that there are probably a lot of COVID infected people living in Thailand, the number of properly tested people are probably very very low. …no testing, no cases of Covid.

    It doesn’t have to Francis, there’s NO proof that con-vid actually exists…… go ask the Brit or Irish guvs! They have ignored all requests and given an answer YET!
    Put this into a good search engine (NOT go-ogle)

New Thailand Plus app for tourists will help officials track their whereabouts

New Thailand Plus app for tourists will help officials track their whereabouts | The Thaiger

A new app, named Thailand Plus, for tourists has been created to help officials track their whereabouts more precisely once they have arrived in Thailand. The app was developed by Sompote Arhunai, the CEO of the Energy Absolute Company, which also developed the “Mor Chana” application.

Sompote says the app will send information to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and will function similarily to a GPS. Such information will include certificate of entries, as well as screening and tracing. He says officials will know the whereabouts of tourists during their stays in case any of them are found to have contracted the virus. Such precise whereabouts will reportedly help authorities to take immediate action to prevent the spread of the virus in the areas in which the tourists visited.

So far, he says 600,000 Thais have downloaded the Mor Chana app and he urges more Thais to do the same. But following the controversial app, which some say is an invasion of privacy, he says their privacy will not be compromised.

Such a new development comes after The Tourism Authority of Thailand has introduced a special tourist visa, for tourists from low-risk countries, in order to start helping the country recover after Covid wrecked the tourism-reliant economy. However, some of the requirements have been controversial as critics say only rich tourists would be able to take advantage of the special visa option. Such requirements include a mandatory 14-day stay at an approved alternative state quarantine hotel or hospital, which is may be quite pricey for the average backpacker. Other requirements include the procurement of travel health insurance that covers a minimum of 400,000 baht.

Recently, tourism authorities have announced that the nation will see 681 tourists arriving by next month, as they have secured the special visas and a place to quarantine.

7 new imported cases of Covid in Thailand today, 0 new deaths

7 new imported cases of Covid in Thailand today, 0 new deaths | The Thaiger

Today, the government is reporting 7 new imported cases of Covid, bringing the total to 3,920 in Thailand with no new deaths. The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration says all 6 cases were asymptomatic Thai returnees, with the other being a man from Syria.

The Thai cases include a woman who returned from Germany on November 7, and tested positive last Wednesday. Another Thai tested positive on Friday after arriving from Denmark on November 9. One Thai case also included a woman who arrived from the US via Doha on November 14, and tested positive last Wednesday. A Thai man, who returned from Kosovo last Tuesday also tested positive 3 days later.

The last 2 Thai cases include a woman who arrived from Qatar last Tuesday and tested positive on Friday. The last Thai person that was included today in Covid diagnostic numbers was a woman who returned from the UK on November 16 and tested positive yesterday.

The last, and only foreign case, reported today was of a man from Syria who arrived from Lebanon on November 8. He changed planes in Dubai, developed a fever on November 13 and tested positive last Friday. This past weekend saw 1 locally-transmitted case as a Burmese refugee tested positive in Tak province after sneaking back into Myanmar, through a natural pass, and returning to the camp with Covid symptoms that included a fever.

Since the local case was found, authorities have placed the camp on lockdown to prevent any future infections. The refugee was also admitted to the Mae Sot hospital for further observation. Authorities also identified 10 people that were thought to have come in close contact with the refugee and have isolated them and are currently monitoring them for any signs of Covid.

In recent months, Myanmar has seen a spike in cases, prompting Thai border authorities to seal the border areas in an attempt to stop illegal migrant crossings that could further spread the Covid virus.

US may receive first Covid vaccine doses by mid-December

US may receive first Covid vaccine doses by mid-December | The Thaiger

The head of the US government’s covid vaccine effort is saying that the first vaccine doses may be shipped by mid-December. Moncef Slaoui, the head of a federal vaccine development program, made the comments just 2 days after Pfizer and BioNTech applied for emergency vaccine use approval from the US Food and Drug Administration, after their versions of the vaccines indicated results showing that it was 95% effective. Moderna, another company has also said its vaccine is 94.5% effective. Slaoui also is in charge of a federal program that increases manufacturing of such promising vaccines as they are developed.

“Our plan is to be able to ship vaccines to the immunisation sites within 24 hours from the approval. So I expect maybe on day two after approval on December 11 or 12.”

The news of a vaccine becoming available comes on the heels of US states seeing a surge in Covid cases, partly due to the winter weather, as colder temperatures are seeing more and more people fall ill. In the state of Texas, the National Guard deployed 36 people to El Paso to help with its overflowing morgue operations. The US retains its place at the top in regards to having the highest number of Covid cases in the world.

But travellers are still filling the airports over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, as they shun the warnings from health officials to stay home and isolate. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country’s top infectious disease expert, says the number of travellers was concerning, stating that they were “going to get us into even more trouble than we’re in right now.”

Fauci says that maybe 20 million people could possible receive the new vaccine by the end of the year.

“More people may die if we don’t coordinate.”
