    The world needs to stop keep track and updating useless figures of asymptomatic cases. They are not accurate and not tonbe if concern. But continues to lead the world if fear when we should’ve be.
    Cases will go up but deaths are ALL decreasing now. This is not a pandemic or was it ever but instead a ploy to build control over the people and create billions of dollars for pharmaceutical companies

Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Officials are reviewing the use of a Samut Prakan hotel, just outside Bangkok, as a quarantine facility, after 3 foreign nationals staying there tested positive for Covid-19. The first was a 57 year old woman who developed symptoms of the virus after she had completed 14 days’ quarantine and had returned to her home on the island of Koh Samui. It’s understood the woman has both Thai and French citizenship; she was born in Thailand and is married to a French national.

Yesterday, Sophon Iamsirithavorn from the General Communicable Diseases Division, confirmed 2 more foreigners staying at the same hotel, in the central province of Samut Prakan, also tested positive. All 3 are now receiving hospital treatment, but Sophon says officials are still not sure how they became infected or if their cases are even linked. He adds that the hotel, named in a Bangkok Post report as the Siam Mandarina, may not meet the required standard of an alternative state quarantine facility.

Thai PBS World reports that the hotel has been thoroughly disinfected by health authorities after traces of Covid-19 were found on equipment in the hotel gym. It’s understood the Disease Control Department is in talks with Samut Prakan health officials regarding a possible suspension of the hotel as a quarantine ‘ASQ’ facility.

Officials are also deciding whether to release those currently quarantining in the hotel once they’ve completed their 14 days, or whether they should be required to install a tracking app on their phones or other means to trace them post-quarantine. Tests are also being carried out on each of the 3 patients to determine if there is a match between the virus strains in each of them.

“Koh Samui is still safe”, Covid-19 measures in place – Health Minister

“Koh Samui is still safe”, Covid-19 measures in place – Health Minister | The Thaiger

Koh Samui is safe to visit … apparently. Even though a woman on the island recently tested positive for Covid-19, the world’s favourite public health minister is assuring the Koh Samui public that health measures on the island are effective and it’s still a safe destination for tourists, presumably the few Thai tourists willing to pay extortionate airfares demanded by Bangkok Airways.

The 57 year old Thai/French woman tested positive for the coronavirus 5 days after she was released from a Samut Prakan quarantine accommodation where she spent the mandatory 2 weeks in isolation after entering the country. She complained of a fever a few days before going to a hospital on the island. Although she didn’t feel well, she went shopping at a Big C and 7-Eleven.

Health officials investigating the case say they found traces of the virus on gym equipment the woman used at the quarantine accommodation, leading them to suspect she came in contact with the virus before arriving to Koh Samui.

In response to the case, Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul travelled the island to deliver 1,000 tablets of the antiviral drug Favipiravir to local hospitals. The drug has been approved in Thailand to treat Covid-19 patients with severe symptoms.

Anutin is urging the public not to worry, saying the island is safe and people can visit as usual. He says there are stringent health measures in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Although Koh Samui reported a rare case of the virus detected outside of quarantine, Anutin says he’s more concerned with the risk of transmission at Bangkok’s ongoing protests. He says he’s instructed the Department of Medical Services to set up medical tents at protest sites that will provide face masks and alcohol-based hand sanitisers.
