809 new Covid-19 cases were reported today in the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration’s daily briefing. Thailand now has 7,181 active coronavirus cases. Since the start of the pandemic last year, the CCSA has reported at total of 22,058 cases and 79 coronavirus-related deaths.

The overall coronavirus situation in Thailand is improving, according to deputy spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Natapanu Nopakun, who also represents the CCSA. He says most new cases are typically clustered in certain locations, like Samut Sakhon, the epicentre of the new wave of infections.

751 cases were detected in active case finding rolled out primarily in the Covid-19 hotspot, Samut Sakhon, which is just southwest of Bangkok. Many infections clusters in the coastal province were detected at factories and among migrant worker dormitories.

Out of the new cases, 45 cases were detected in hospitals and healthcare facilities while 13 cases were detected in quarantine for those arriving in Thailand from overseas.

    Did you really think you could just avoid germs forever, or that the immune system wouldn’t play a role?

    Lucky for East Asian countries, they likely have wide spread cross-immunity from extensive exposure to other coronavirus strains. This has played a significant role of establishing herd immunity in the US and Britain, and is likely even more prevalent in Asia, which sorta explains how a society that doesn’t wash their hands was able to contain the virus so easily.

      yes best to focus all efforts and attention on covid buddy…. since cancer, heart disease, Alzheimers, strokes, dementia, diabetes just don’t matter anymore,,, oh and also lets focus on “Germs” and not worry about the domestic and drug abuse that’s sky rocketed during this germs stage that if you are clever to read the numbers you will see that scam virus kills 0.02% death rate on population of the WORLD…. media and bad governments are the pandemic… not this covid garbage.

    more ‘cases’… suitcases, basket cases, just-in-cases? Fake cases… False cases….

    Read this>

    WHO says the PCR tests produce far far too many false positives, AND any positives MUST be supported by ACTIVE and SHOWING symptoms.

    This garbage news about more and more cases and means nothing. When an average Joe like me can within 5 minutes google a few stats and do some very basic math and read a few articles, why do others still believe in the scam and beg for a faux vax?

    The only problem there, Glenn, is that that wasn’t what the WHO said.

    It’s a lie.

    It’s “garbage news”.

    If you read what the WHO actually said (and it’s easily available) rather then the carefully edited version given in the QAnon sites, all the memo did was remind lab techs to follow manufacturers instructions when doing the tests.

    Nothing else.

    Nothing about the PCR test being uneliable or producing false positives, etc.

    It’s simply an outright lie, which you’re repeating. Again.
