A 7 month old baby girl tested positive for Covid-19 in Suphan Buri, northwest of Bangkok. With 7 confirmed coronavirus cases now in the province, local disease control officials are discussing whether to impose coronavirus prevention measures, according to the provincial governor Natthaphat Suwanprateep.

Reports do not mention if the girl’s mother was tested for the coronavirus. On December 17, the mother brought her child along with her to the Bank for Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives in Song Phi Nong sub district. They then went to the Khok Ta Ek flea market in Bang Len sub district. The next day, they went to a shrimp pond in the Salee sub district. On Sunday, the mother took her daughter to the private hospital in the Mueang district.

    Is any one sick yet? Anyone? If no one is sick why are we freaking out? And what’s the cycle thresholds? Why are we not being told more info about the testing thresholds used to determine a positive case. If everyone is asymptomatic, what’s the issue?

      1) They’re no all asymptomatic 2) They carry the virus and can pass it on to others.

      Tell your friend ‘Contempt’ with the same IP address the same thing.

        All my comments are in line with the guidelines they just go against your agenda. If you wanna play the ip game, I will win. Are my comments hurting anyone. The flu kills people to. We never shut the world down for that.

        Why don’t you report cycle thresholds. Anything over 14 cycles is scientifically meaningless. What your doing is harming everyone and the economy with your fear based reporting. But I’m the one that needs to be censored. Clearly free speech is not something you believe in. How are millions supposed to feed them self when they can’t make money?

        A virus with a 99.98% survival rate isn’t dangerous.

        Why don’t we recommend old people to be very careful? Why do we all need to suffer?

        I’m making a desperate attempt to demand sanity before the govt goes ahead with more lockdowns that don’t work and do more harm than good.

        Out of the 1000 positive cases and now likely over 10,000, where’s the sick people. Are we now in such bizarro land that even 1 sick person is too much?

        There are effective treatments, the hospitals are not filled with sick people. Why are we still so paranoid? This isn’t March 2020. We have learned a lot about treating the sick people and reducing the fatality of this.

        Why can’t we advocate for a more sensible approach?

        Millions of thais will go hungry if we go into another lockdowns. But that’s ok to save a few old people from dying or getting sick.

          Not sure where you get your numbers, however, the world infection rate is 1% with 2.2% of those infected die (1,714,649 people dead so far. Are you willing to have that put on your headstone or that of family or friends?

    reporting of cycle thresholds should also be included. I would like to politely ask, why this is ommited from the reporting?
