All the provincial totals (below) from the NBT.

Today’s Covid-19 infections were announced this morning and feature a new high in Covid-related deaths. 21 people have succumbed over the past 24 hour reporting period, according to the Thai Health Ministry. The people that died include 9 men and 12 women, aged between 39 and 90. 28,745 people remain in state-controlled care… 20,775 in hospitals, 7,970 in field hospitals. 829 patients are registered as “in a serious condition”, 270 on ventilators.

1,891 new Covid infections have also been reported. Thailand’s total cases has now reached 67,044 since the start of the pandemic in Thailand in January 2020. 1,884 of those are local community cases. The rise in today’s cases bucks the trend of a slow drop in numbers over the past 3 days of reporting.

Here are the provincial totals…

    I can’t believe that old people die of pneumonia. I thought people live forever.

    They are not dying of pneumonia. They are dying of a new highly infectious, and deadly disease that is more deadly than anything the world has experienced in 100 years. This is the crisis of our life-times, and to survive it extreme measures are required to contain it.

    @John “They are dying of a new highly infectious, and deadly disease that is more deadly than anything the world has experienced in 100 years.”

    Really? 99.8% survive and you think it’s ~~~THE MOST DEADLY DISEASE IN 100 YEARS!~~~

    Look up HIV, kiddo. Look up Measles. Read a book sometime.
