There has been 2,112 new Covid-19 infections announced for Wednesday, according to the Thai health ministry. 15 people have also been reported as dying from Covid-related symptoms in the past 24 hours.

30,222 people are still under state care and observation in hospitals or field hospitals. 1,886 were discharged from care yesterday. 10.042 patients are listed as in serious condition and 343 are currently on ventilators.

Meanwhile CP, the Charoen Pokphand Group, is stepping in to assist with the Bangkok cluster in Klong Toey, sandwiched between Sukhumvit Road and the Chao Phraya.

They’ve launched a mass vaccination scheme to support the BMA’s efforts with a mass vaccination facility at Lotus Rama IV with the aim of vaccinating 1,000 people per day. The huge agribusiness conglomerate is also providing food supplies for up to 200 households and helping co-ordinate better communications and internet amongst the community. The high-density living conditions are home to some 90,000 people.

A spokesperson for the Thai Public Health Ministry has also confirmed that expats will not be included in the next round of vaccination and they will be for “Thais only”. More about that HERE.
