157 new Covid-19 cases and 1 new death were reported today in the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration’s daily briefing. Thailand now has 4,909 active cases. Since the start of the pandemic last year, the CCSA has reported a total of 23,903 Covid-19 infections and 80 coronavirus-related deaths.

Out of the 157 new cases, 106 cases were detected in active case finding with 104 in Samut Sakhon and 2 in Samut Songkhram. 38 cases were linked to high risk areas, including 28 cases in Samut Sakhon. 13 cases were detected in quarantine for people entering Thailand from overseas.

A 65 year old woman from Samut Sakhon died after testing positive for Covid-19. The woman had laryngeal cancer, hyperlipidemia and chronic kidney disease. She was infected by a family member. 5 of the 8 people in her family were infected with the virus.

The woman had a Covid-19 test on December 29 when she went to a private hospital for a dialysis treatment. Her symptoms got worse and she started to have difficulty breathing. She was transferred to a hospital in Bangkok where she was put on a respirator. She had a tracheostomy to help her breathe, but there was bleeding around the tube and then fungus was detected in her blood. She died on February 8.

    The woman who died was 65 and had cancer and kidney disease.
    Maybe some healthy people die of this covid, does anyone know of a case?
    I have yet to read of one.
    Notice, they are now claiming the deaths are now coronavirus related deaths.
    They are playing their cards right, in case it comes out some were not corona deaths.

      Your ignorance and inability to read anything that contradicts your agenda are unfortunate, Toby.

      A quick search, taking all of 10 seconds, shows that reportedly 6% of those dying of Covid in the USA (“of”, not “with”) are “young and healthy” and, from Reuters, that “The latest Office for National Statistics figures reveal just under a tenth of all COVID-19 deaths in England and Wales in March and April had no pre-existing health conditions”.

        What so 11 thousand people in England and Wales *genuinely* died of the covid sniffles? Seeing as you’re a man of may statistics, Issan John…

        What was the average age of this 10%?

        • Issan John

          Thursday, February 11, 2021 at 12:24 am

          As explained, Dan,I thought quite clearly, it’s a quote from Reuters citing the Office for National Statistics.

          Do a search and you get not only the Reuters article but links in it to the ONS.

          Do you not know how to do a search for that?

        Those figures I’m sure are correct IJ. The only thing I would add, and in support of Toby’s general point, is that they were most likely overweight and with a BMI higher than 30. While I have not conducted any specific research, anecdotal evidence by watching news items and documentaries filmed in the U.K, I would say nearly all Covid fatalities are either:
        Old
        With pre-existing or underlying health conditions
        Overweight or obese.

        Like with all statistics, I am sure there will be some exceptions to this rule. However, I would think if you could get the U.K. to issue the weight of those “fit and healthy people” who have died, I think it would show this other significant factor.
        I certainly have never seen anyone shown on television or newspapers where they didn’t fit one or more of the above categories. The youngest I saw was a 15 year old, “fit and healthy” child who loves his football. But the child was overweight with what looked like a BMI of between 30-35.
        This unreported issue of excess weight, may be one reason why the percentage of deaths compared to number of cases in Thailand is low. Obesity, although on the rise in Thailand, is far lower than in the U.K. or U.S.

        • Toby Andrews

          Wednesday, February 10, 2021 at 9:57 pm

          Yes I agree with D Mann, being fat is ignored as a risk of dying from this virus.
          It is a love that dare not speak it’s name, but not homosexuality; it is gluttony!
          I am sorry to offend members on the forum that are so fat that they have to walk down steps sideways, but your gut might kill you.

        • Issan John

          Thursday, February 11, 2021 at 12:37 am

          Well, if you have a problem with the stats or want to know more, maybe you should check the links first and then take it up with the ONS.

          … and FWIW maybe you’d like to look at the BMI of those in the British Lions rugby team, and any of their international peers … maybe they’re all unhealthy …

          Sorry, but I’m afraid that this sort of thing when it applies to approaching half the population of the UK who are “old” or have a “BMI over 30” or some “underlying health condition” is just being a bit too absurd for me.

        6%… compare to what??? You are an idiot and idiots spread idiotic crap… spread your idiotic numbers with no rational following whatsoever as if it was science (???), but only fools fools, you are simply both, a rare ( but dangerous for humanity) case. A fool trying to convince the fools. As for your fanfastic judgement on people and to reply to a previous one, I do not know much about soi 6 ( I guess you idiot you meant nana plaza In bkk), I hate bkk and all big cities, I leave in the jungle in the third biggest island of Thailand. But you know better , right?

            For once, Toby, we’re in agreement. He’s evidently out of his skull.

            “6%” can’t be “compare to” anything! It’s … well … 6% – 6 cases in 100.

            You’re in luck, Toby – Manu manages to make you look like Einstein.

          Thursday, February 11, 2021 at 12:53 am

          Toby, as I would have thought you’d know, links are not permitted here.

          Do you not know how to do a search?

          Seriously?

          How much more information do you need than:

          “from Reuters, that “The latest Office for National Statistics figures reveal just under a tenth of all COVID-19 deaths in England and Wales in March and April had no pre-existing health conditions”.”

          ? 😮 ? 😮 ? 😮

          Sorry, but I take back what I said about Einstein – I genuinely didn’t think that was possible for anyone able to make a comment here. 😮

            John, there is greater likelihood of dying with the flu than then covid, for young and seemingly healthy people. You talk about 6% of those dying with covid are young and healthy. So, if you think that millions all over the world should starve to death (Unicef plus UN reports) due to the corona lockdowns, then you should also be of the opinion, that the world economy should be shut down forever, due to the flu deaths. Btw., tons of research now shows that the likelihood of dying with the covid when you are young, is extremely low – one in 10,000 or so.

            It is about cost/benefit. Currently it certainly looks like a lot more are dying from starvation all over the world than we are saving from the covid death. And those dying from starvation are much, much younger than the ones dying with covid. If the cure is much worse than the disease – and it is! – then the cure has to be changed.

            Peter, “I” am not the one talking about it!

            I’m simply passing on the facts as reported by the ONS, etc.

            If you disagree with them and you think you know better, take it up with them.

            As for your tediously repeated claim “that millions all over the world should starve to death (Unicef plus UN reports) due to the corona lockdowns”, I’m bored of repeating that it’s a lie.

            There are no such “reports” from Unicef or the UN.

            Repeating the lie ad nauseam doesn’t make it any less of a lie, it just makes it rather boring.

      • Peter Nielsen

        Thursday, February 11, 2021 at 12:22 pm

        John, how large a percentage of those dying with the flu are “young and healthy”? There are young a healthy people dying with the flu, sure. You know the percentage compared to the total number of deaths?

        I think you got my point…

        What?? 6% to what meant the death rate of young people comparing to what? Compared to the same group of people dying from all sorts of things. Tfhat means is that grioup of people died more in 2019 than previous years because of Covid? Well no, numbers are out there and the answer is scientifically No. why you thing it is different?

      Toby, on average a person dying with covid has 2.7 underlying serious diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes. The average age for people dying with covid in Sweden, is 84. Life expectancy in Sweden is a little over 82.

      This raises the question whether the price of the worldwide lockdowns exceeds the virus itself. And of course it does. By FAR!

      • Issan John

        Friday, February 12, 2021 at 12:17 am

        Ummm … most of us “worldwide” aren’t “in Sweden”.

        Maybe you didn’t notice from your planet.

    This lady had so many things wrong with her how was she managing to stay alive anyway she would have probably died anyway covid just speeded it up a few days or weeks

        If you want to keep the emergency measures & draconian regulations in place, of course you need to include this 65 year old in poor health to your Wuhan Flu statistics. Typical fuel for the paranoia that envelops the Kingdom .

          The woman got tracheotomy. A famous therapy for pneumonia due to covid.
          I would say “fuck” to who post such news, and a double “fuck” to who comment that this is a covid case.
          Brainwashed cowards.

          • Issan John

            Thursday, February 11, 2021 at 1:06 am

            Sorry, vic, but I’m not sure I understand you.

            If she had “pneumonia due to covid” doesn’t that mean “this is a covid case”?

            … because it’s “due to covid”?

            Aren’t the two 100% synonymous?

            … the same?

            Maybe I’ve misunderstood one of your “”fuck”s” … 😮 😮

            Thursday, February 11, 2021 at 7:22 am

            Tracheotomy to cure pneumonia? Covid due death with all those sickness? Hey man, I don’t understand why you’re really a covid fan: just cowardly or you have some biz interest?

      • Manu

        Wednesday, February 10, 2021 at 8:39 pm

        What about the millions of people dying of all sort of other things (in Thailand only 79 so far with Covid 19… hardly a human disaster). Have you been so “considerate” of people dying from all sorts before Covid or your consideration only started with Covid (I know the answer but please enlighten us? An idiot do idiotic, that is what you are, not a very nice human being at all … fool anyone but not yourself .

        • Issan John

          Thursday, February 11, 2021 at 1:11 am

    • Manu

      Wednesday, February 10, 2021 at 8:56 pm

      Well according to the idiots, no. She died from Covid and cause the idiots are the current humanity ( human beings who lost any humanity), there is no questioning anymore. Enjoyi their “new world “.

      • Issan John

        Thursday, February 11, 2021 at 1:19 am

        Well… we seem to be going back to vic’s comment that she died “due to covid” but “a double “fuck” to who comment that this is a covid case.”

        Maybe. 😮 …

    AAWWWwwwwwwww!!! DIDDUMS!!!1 death today…my heart bleeds. NOT!! COMPARE THIS TO THE 1844 PEOPLE IN THAILAND WHO HAVE ALREADY DIED IN ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS SINCE JANUARY 1st!! NOW THAT “IS” SHOCKING! Not some old biddy who was already dying from poor health. SAME OLD COVID STORY FOLKS….blah, blah, blah… don’t believe a word of this media-hyped propaganda. I know old folk like Rubber Johnnie of Issan believe this.. but hey, senility is a sad thing!

    Wednesday, February 10, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    And, please… all this empathy and ‘feeling sorry’ for the victims and their families nonsense.. WTF?! The people to feel sorry for are the millions of poverty stricken families who are struggling to pay their rent, electricity, water, feed their families and send their kids to school! NOT THE “GLOBAL” 2.2M Covid victims, which is a mortality “drop in the ocean” when compared to ‘normal flu’ and cancer mortality EVERY SINGLE YEAR!! WAKE UP TO REALITY CRETINS!!

    • Issan John

      Thursday, February 11, 2021 at 1:29 am

      Well … actually it’s not a “”drop in the ocean” when compared to ‘normal flu’” but it’s around five or ten times as many, despite all the precautions.

      … and while many more die from cancer, AFAIK cancer isn’t contagious …

      • Peter Nielsen

        Thursday, February 11, 2021 at 12:34 pm

        Well, John, whether cancer is not contagious, is really a truth with modifications. Many factors play a role getting cancer, some of them being smoking. And smoking definitely is psychologically contagious, as if your surrounding environment (friends, family, etc.) are smoking, you, yourself, is much more likely to adopt that unhealthy and cancer-inducing habit.
        Furthermore, the lockdowns have caused a huge dive in the national and worldwide GDP, and there are tons of studies suggesting a correlation between GDP and life expectancy and general level of health.

    Stupidity is a sad thing t0o but your obviously not ashamed to flaunt it, when a country allows 10 year old to operate vehicles, people not where helmets, 4 to five people on motorcycles ,loaded utes with people ,no seatbelt wearing, driving on the wrong side of the road,minimum dui testing what do you think is going to happen you tool? Most people that die on thai roads are the result of one of the above indirectly or not, now lets look at the 79 “REPORTED deaths reported being the key word,your mindless reasoning as to why we shouldn’t be concerned is concerning to me that you have the ability to operate a toilet successfully, so please unless you can contribute with a intelligent comprehensive reasoning stick to hiding in the corner with your latest edition of playboy and leave comments to them with a brain.
