A Covid-19 patient in Phuket worked at an entertainment venue in Bangkok’s Thong Lor area where a cluster of coronavirus infections have been reported.

The 29 year old woman worked as a receptionist at a venue on Thong Lor. Reports don’t say which bar she worked at, but dozens of Covid-19 cases are linked to bars and pubs in the area.

A customer told the bar that they tested positive for Covid-19 on April 1. It’s unclear if the receptionist heard about the Covid-19 infection. The day after the customer confirmed their infection, the receptionist travelled to Phuket.

She found out later that night that 2 of her co-workers at the Thong Lor bar tested positive for Covid-19. She experienced symptoms of fever, a runny nose and cough the following morning.

The patient’s timeline:

  • April 1: A customer reports that they are infected with Covid-19.
  • April 2: The woman travelled by van to Bangkok’s Don Mueang Airport. She boarded a flight to Phuket at 1:15pm. She had a headache during the flight. She travelled by taxi to a hotel in the Mueang district and then ate with her boyfriend and his family. At 7pm, she heard that 2 of her co-workers tested positive for Covid-19. At 8pm, she had a fever and moved to another hotel in the area.
  • April 3: She had symptoms of a fever, runny nose and a cough. She went to a hospital and tested positive for Covid-19.

Health officials in Phuket are investigating. Bar hopping and partying has led to a spread of Covid-19 cases in Bangkok, and now Phuket. A band member who attended 3 large “Kolour” parties over the weekend has tested positive for Covid-19.
