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%?

          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.

          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.

          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.

            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.

          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”.”

            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.

        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!

        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.

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.

When can we travel again? World Covid Travel Update | VIDEO | The Thaiger

Today we’ll look at the larger world travel picture in this Covid era, and then we’ll check the latest opportunities if you want to come back to Thailand for travel.

So when can we pack the bags and travel again? Well, in theory, right now. But in practice, depending where you’re coming from and where you want to go, that may still be very complicated… and remain so for at least the rest of this year. But some of the world’s travel so-called experts are now speaking in terms of months and not years. Whilst some of that might be optimistic travel industry spin, there may be some greater certainty on re-openings of some sectors of the world travel industry in the next few months.

But first, consider all the variables that need to fall into place for things to go smoothly..

Despite the roll out of various vaccines, and more on the way, some countries are more advanced in that process than others. The appearance of virus mutations could send all the best guesses for an improvement in travel opportunities into disarray. Whilst it seems the vaccines will be a great benefit for victims to avoid the worst ravages of Covid-19, there is still a long way to go to measure the longer term effects on the changes in transmission and community immunity.

The Thai government has approved a budget of 6.387 billion baht to procure an additional 35 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines. The budget was approved at a Cabinet meeting yesterday, according to a government spokesperson.

Nation Thailand reports that the budget will be divided into 5.6 billion baht, which will be spent on AstraZeneca vaccines, with 700 million baht going on preparation and rollout at a local level. It’s understood officials expect to take delivery of the new consignment at the same time as it receives the 26 million AstraZeneca doses and 2 million Sinovac doses already on order.

In total, this will give Thailand 63 million doses. In PM Prayut Chan-o-cha’s “PM Podcast,” he said 63 million doses will cover approximately 31.5 million people. It’s understood the Public Health Ministry is also in talks with other vaccine manufacturers. Johnson & Johnson has already begun the process of applying to register its single-dose vaccine in the Kingdom. Thailand currently has a limited number of vaccine doses, with high-risk provinces and groups being given priority. The government plans to open vaccine registration to general members of the public in May.
