The Chon Buri Covid-19 cluster is spreading with the Chon Buri Provincial Public Health Office confirming 99 new cases today. The province, which contains Pattaya, seems to be following a growing infection trend. The Pattaya area saw 47 new cases, and Mueang Chon Buri had 41 cases, with other districts having less than 5 each. 2 people infected with Covid-19 were brought from outside Chon Buri for treatment locally. The new cases bring the total number of Covid-19 infections in the province up to 710 people.

While infections are on the rise, officials advise that the numbers are not showing a severe or exponential increase and are in line with daily averages. They say the growing numbers are more likely due to “diligent testing throughout the community”, especially in nightlife venues and popular entertainment districts. 984 cautionary tests were administered today along with 342 people suspected to have been in close contact with Covid-19 infected people.

Within the new infections, 41 people are still being investigated to find the source of the virus, while 29 people were family members or close contacts of other infected people.

The sources of new infections are…

  • PATTAYA
    • 3 infections at The Box 69 Pattaya
    • 3 infections at Cetus Pattaya
    • 3 infections at Garden 168
    • 1 infection at Bone Pattaya
    • 1 infection at Insomnia Pattaya
  • OTHER AREAS IN CHON BURI
    • 5 infections at Flintstone’s Pub in Meung Chon Buri, the source of 137 cases total.
    • 4 infections at Infinity Siracha
    • 3 infections at 2.7 Replay Bang Saen
  • FROM OUTSIDE CHON BURI
    • 4 infections at Entertainment venues in Bangkok

    Any PCR test is completely worthless and as the PCR test is currently being used in Thailand these numbers you cite are totally meaningless. The only thing they’re good for is scaring people into taking the jab which of course is what all this is about.

    Wow. Thais can only get infection in pubs. Maybe because farangs visited pubs before them.
    Surprisingly, no symptoms and no deaths at all.
    More than pandemic, let’s call it illusionism…

The district of Sattahip, in the eastern province of Chon Buri, is picking up the pieces after a devastating storm struck in the early hours of yesterday morning. According to a Pattaya News report, 11 fishing boats have sunk and at least 20 homes have sustained damage, mainly along the coast. It’s understood most of the fishing boats belong to the Khao Lan fisheries group.

The roof of Chong Samae San Temple has also collapsed, significantly damaging the building. However, it’s believed no injuries were sustained or lives lost in the storm. Wanchat Wanphram, deputy district chief of Sattahip, inspected the damaged areas in the company of the local Red Cross and a number of district officials.

The Pattaya News reports that the Red Cross and Wanchat distributed survival bags to affected residents. It’s understood district officials plan to provide some form of financial aid to those who have lost their homes or whose properties and boats have been damaged.

Meanwhile, the Thai Meteorological Department has issued a warning for more storms in the coming days.
