100 new Covid-19 cases and 1 death were reported today in the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration’s daily briefing. The Emergency Decree was also extended for the 11th time at today’s CCSA meeting chaired by PM Prayut Chan-o-cha. The decree will now be in place until May 31.

Interagency cooperation and integration under the decree is still necessary to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 in Thailand, according to deputy spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Natapanu Nopakun, who gives the CCSA’s daily report in English.

In today’s daily briefing, Natapanu said there are now 1,054 active Covid-19 cases in Thailand. Since the start of the pandemic, the CCSA has reported a total of 27,594 coronavirus infections and 90 deaths.

Out of the 100 new cases, 41 cases are from active case finding, 55 are local transmissions and 4 cases were detected in quarantine for those travelling to Thailand from overseas.

A 53 year old Thai woman in Samut Sakhon died after testing positive for Covid-19. She had underlying conditions of diabetes, myocardial infarction and pneumonia. On January 29, the woman had symptoms of a cough, difficulty breathing and a loss of smell. She tested positive for Covid-19 on February 2 and transferred to a hospital in Bangkok. She later developed a blood infection. She died on March 17.

    That the emergency decree has been extended is an predictable as the sun rising and setting….. The focus now is on vaccinating the people!

    “She had underlying conditions of diabetes, myocardial infarction and pneumonia.”

    This woman died of myocardial infarction and pneumonia, NOT from CV. CCSA credibility is garbage.

    And how else do you retain emergency powers? Of course, you gin up more deadly dangerous pandemic propaganda. Seems many other countries in the world are sick and tired of this garbage and people are saying so.

    Thailand….. crickets.

    I agree Glen that the definition of what causes death is sometimes less than accurate. It’s the case all over the world that numbers are being counted differently. However, I think it’s fair to say that no one actually “dies of Covid”. The virus causes things to happen such as the development of pneumonia or other lung capacity issues. Other actual causes of death include blood clotting (one reason why the EU reacted as they did towards reports that vaccines could also cause blood clotting). So it’s important to realise that when reports from hospitals say they died from a particular organ failure, it does not mean it was not Covid that caused it. The difficulty comes in people who have advanced medical problems and also contract Covid. Did the Covid finally push them over the edge and hence fair to say it was a major contributor to their death or not?? Complex, which is why definitions and numbers vary Its like saying speeding is what caused someone to die in a car accident. It was actually impacting the power pole at 70mph that killed them!!

    So 90 people have died from Covid, How many of those were already sick or at risk. How many people died on
    Thai highways in similar period?
