143 new Covid-19 cases and 2 deaths were reported today in the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration’s daily briefing. Thailand’s coronavirus death toll is now at 82. Since the start of the pandemic last year, Thailand has reported a total of 24,714 Covid-19 infections. There are 1,749 active Covid-19 cases.

A 62 year old Thai man from Ubon Ratchathani died after testing positive for Covid-19. He had underlying conditions of diabetes and chronic kidney disease. A 78 year old Thai from Samut Sakhon died after testing positive for Covid-19. He had underlying conditions of asthma and high blood pressure.

The number of active cases in Thailand is on a download slope as health officials have lessened active testing efforts in high risk areas, primarily in Samut Sakhon. The aggressive mass testing campaign had screened thousands, resulting hundreds of cases were reported each day. Most were asymptomatic.

A new Covid-19 cluster is reported in Pathum Thani, according to Ministry of Foreign Affairs deputy spokesperson Natapanu Nopakun, who gives the CCSA’s daily report in English. Around 200 recent infections are related to open-air fresh markets in the province, he says. Markets linked to the outbreak are closed and vendors are being tested.

Low ceilings and inadequate ventilation contributed to the spread of the virus at the markets, Natapanu says. It would get hot and people would take off their face masks because it was uncomfortable. Natapanu adds that poor ventilation can increase the risk of virus transmission.

    Same again. Two die from covid? They were old, they were ill.
    Did they die of covid or did they die of age and illness. One was 78.
    Does it suit the government to state they died of covid to maintain their emergency powers?

    Yeah, diddums! Old ‘biffers’ who were already about to snuff it…Covid just just assisted and made it happen a bit sooner. If you are old and past it, I figure getting Covid’s a bit like booking an appointment at ‘Dignitas’clinic in Geneva.
    By the way, the Thai baht is still strong at 42. “something” against the British pound and is set to still keep rising by the year end!

    My mama always said “never trust those who are not open minded enough to consider anything is a possible in this world, no matter how outlandish something may seem”
