365 new Covid-19 cases and 1 death were reported today in the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration’s daily briefing. There are now 4,847 active cases in Thailand. A total of 9,331 Covid-19 cases and 66 coronavirus-related deaths have been reported by the CCSA since the start of the outbreak last year.

The latest coronavirus-related fatality is a 63 year old man who drove migrant workers to and from work in Samut Sakhon. He was admitted to the hospital on December 27 and died yesterday due to multiple organ failure. Reports do not say when the man tested positive for Covid-19, if he was experiencing any symptoms and if he had any underlying conditions.

Out of the 365 new Covid-19 cases, only 16 of them were detected in quarantine facilities for those arriving in Thailand from overseas. For the local transmissions, Chon Buri had the most cases, followed by Samut Prakan, Chanthaburi and Bangkok, but reports do not specify how many cases were in each province.

In Samut Sakhon, local health officials reported 900 new Covid-19 cases today detected in mass testing. Those cases are not included in today’s daily report from the CCSA.

    So what’s the point of mandatory quarantine if lockdowns work?

    This is so hard to understand. I’m so confused. Oh and only 66 supposed deaths caused by covid. When am I supposed to get scared?

    I’m not scared yet. Just annoyed at the media and their mistruths

      It is a pity the virus impacts the older folks. I wish we could get a virus that mostly impacts those without a brain. We really need to clean the world of the uneducated and foolish.

        So 65 deaths in 1 year from a supposed virus worries you?

        If your old and unhealthy, stay home. But advocating for everyone of all ages to put their life on hold because you’re afraid of dying is crap.

        You must be relieved then, John, given you’re so young and intelligent.

      You could try to call the virus to have a duel.

        The virus is everywhere, like the internet, it’s not interested in local politics.

    It is not reported that he was tested positive for covid, yet they claim he died of covid.
    It suits them to state this because they can justify their emergency and all the powers and money they make because of it.
    Anyone smell a rat in regards to this case?

Last night, police raided a house in Nonthaburi and arrested 40 people for allegedly gambling.

According to the deputy chief of the Central Investigation Bureau, 33 are Thais and 7 are migrant workers of the casino. The officials also confiscated decks of cards of the Dragon-Tiger game, plastic chips and some cash as evidence.

During the raid, the migrant workers allegedly revealed that the gambling operations at the home had only been going on for 2 days and that the owner planned to move it to other locations.

Police have been cracking down on gambling after the Covid-19 outbreak at a Rayong gambling den in line with the PM’s order made last week to shut down the illegal venues and tracking down “influential figures.”

With Covid-19 cases linked to some illegal gambling dens, causing a headache for health officials trying to track down elusive gamblers to contain the virus, the former Finance Minister floated the idea to legalise gambling.

The former Finance Minister and current leader of the Kla Party, Korn Chaitkavanich, claims legalising gambling will help contain the spread of Covid-19. He also hinted that it will gain more tax revenue. If it’s legalised, gamblers will spend their money in legal casinos that pay taxes, drawing in more money the government can use for public improvements, he says.

The Royal Thai Police spokesperson insists police are pursuing legal action against owners of the illegal gambling dens. Interior Minister Anuphong Paojinda has also told provincial governors to suppress illegal gambling dens and take responsibility if more gambling dens are found.

Travelling in Thailand, Covid and Mor Chana | VIDEO | The Thaiger

For people travelling around Thailand at the moment there is still quite a lot of confusion and misinformation about where you can travel to and additional restrictions on travel. We’ll continue to publish any updates to this information at thethaiger.com

For people travelling out of Red Zones… that includes Bangkok…. to other parts of the country that are lower-risk zones – organge, yellow and green – there are a number of precautions in place.

How these precautions are applied in practice is sometimes up to the local governors and officials and also sometime up to you with advisories about your behaviour when you arrive at your destinations

In Phuket, for example, if you want to travel from Bangkok to the island, officially there are restrictions on your travel, documented in a 3 page announcement last weekend. There was talk of a 14 day self quarantine being in place.

This week the Tourism Authority of Thailand has announced that travellers will not have to do a 14 day quarantine if they travel from Bangkok, except from four high risk areas in the capital
