80 new cases, 1 death - Thailand Covid update | News by Thaiger

1 new death was reported in a Thai man who had diabetes and lived in Nakhon Pathom. He had previously visited the Bang Khae Market which was the epicenter of a recent cluster of infections. On March 16, he said he felt lethargic and had symptoms of asthma. He went to a hospital where he was found to have Hyperglycemia or high blood sugar, and was tested for Covid-19. The first test was negative, but then on March 25, the patient fell unconscious and was pronounced dead. Doctors say, at his death, he tested positive for Covid-19.

Meanwhile, yesterday Thailand has reported its first death of a Covid-19 vaccine patient. An investigation has been launched by the Public Health Ministry, but health officials say the death is not related to the vaccine and that the death was from natural causes.

10 days after being injected with the vaccine, a 60 year old patient had an abdominal aortic aneurysm, which led to a fatal rupture. The patient has suffered chronic illness since birth, according to the Bangkok Post. It’s unclear what the illness was, but the person needed regular treatment throughout their life. They recently underwent surgery, but the illness worsened and led to the patient’s death, according to deputy director general of the Department of Disease Control.

There have been only 2 reports of severe side effects following the injection of the Covid-19 vaccine since Thailand started its immunisation campaign on February 28, according to Sophon, who is also the chairperson of the government’s subcommittee on Covid-19 vaccine management.

    “1 new death was reported in a Thai man who had diabetes and lived in Nakhon Pathom. He had previously visited the Bang Khae Market which was the epicenter of a recent cluster of infections.

    so he was diabetic, had a case of high blood sugar to the point of passing out. Yes you can die from that. was previously tested negative. died. was tested again and was positive….

    ummm yea. 50% / 50% positive based on two tests. PCR tests are well known for false positives. never mind that according to this article the guy was severely diabetic. must have been CV, of course, why not, sure, aw shoot – just call it CV.

    CCSA will soon be calling deaths by motorcycle accident CV deaths.

    He died of diabetes, but to maintain the fear of Covid, they say he died of Covid.
    The government have this fear as a tool to declare emergencies, and bans, and control.
    Glen is right. Next they will claim Covid caused traffic accidents because the driver died of Covid at the wheel.

    So, with 92 reported deaths, Thailand is fudging the figures by exaggerating the numbers and in your views the real figures are actually lower, Toby A and Glenn?

    Really?

    Wow, so Thailand’s doing even BETTER despite all those saying thousands of deaths here are unreported as Covid related?

    That’ll be a shock to some commenting here!!! ? ? ?
