The man also had a high fever and fatigue. He died that day. Medical examiners later tested the man’s body for Covid-19 and the results came out positive for the virus.

The CCSA also released details on a death announced yesterday. They say an 88 year old man in Bangkok died after testing positive for Covid-19. He had underlying conditions of diabetes, high blood pressure, hyperlipidemia and chronic kidney disease. On February 20, the man had symptoms of a dry cough. He went to the hospital a week later with symptoms of fatigue and low oxygen levels. He tested positive for Covid-19 on March 1 and was immediately put on a respirator.

    I am becoming bored with these excuses.
    Either vaccinate, or plead with foreigners to do the vaccinations.
    These latest deaths were persons were at deaths door.
    Ask a twenty year foreign old backpacker to explain why, you Thai morons.
