• On the aviation front, the third wave of Covid-19 around the country is forecast to show a drop in air travel by 38% for this financial year, according to the Aeronautical Radio of Thailand.

They expect the air traffic in Thailand to remain subdued until at least September this year. Aerothai’s executive VP for operations, said the number of local flights had been stable for the first half of April but it plummeted dramatically in the second half.

Despite the current wave, the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand is still planning to relax restrictions for international flights to and from Thailand. The Government has re-iterated its commitment to reopen the country’s main tourist areas from July.

• Yesterday the CCSA said that Bangkok will need more beds for severely ill Covid-19 cases over the next couple of weeks, as the number of daily infections continue to rise.

Since the start of April, this is how the third wave has unravelled…

  1. Utterly unbelievable new-infection and death figures for today; so similar to Saturday’s and barely a per-cent or two different from last week’s work-day figures, when you’d expect significantly different social-contacting and travelling behaviours to apply.

    You gotta hand it to those CCSA people though . . . they’re consistent, at least.

  2. The number of deaths are relatively small still. However, it would be good to see what is happening to so called “excess deaths”. These are figure which show the death rate compared to the monthly average over the past 5 years. If people are dying at home or in local hospitals due to Covid and not being recorded as Covid, then they will still show up in the excess deaths. That said, even in the U.K. where over 126,000 have died, the excess deaths peaked to around 20% more than the “normal” rate. So it may be too early to see the effect?

  3. Here is some news that is relevant to the discussion that everyone should know:
    “A team of over 1,000 lawyers and over 10,000 medical experts led by Dr. Reiner Fuellmich have begun legal proceedings against the CDC, WHO & the Davos Group for crimes against humanity.
    Fuellmich and his team present the faulty PCR test and the order for doctors to label any comorbidity death as a Covid death as fraud. The PCR test was never designed to detect pathogens and is 100% faulty at 35 cycles. All the PCR tests overseen by the CDC are set at 37 to 45 cycles. The CDC admits that any tests over 28 cycles are not admissible for a positive reliable result. This alone invalidates over 90% of the alleged covid cases / ”infections” tracked by the use of this faulty test.
    In addition to the flawed tests and fraudulent death certificates, the “experimental” vaccine itself is in violation of Article 32 of the Geneva Convention. Under Article 32 of the 1949 Geneva Convention IV, “mutilation and medical or scientific experiments not necessitated by the medical treatment of a protected person” are prohibited. According to Article 147, conducting biological experiments on protected persons is a grave breach of the Convention.”

  4. Fudging the figures is a path to nowhere….If figures are understated, no one from abroad will have the confidence to visit Thailand, so it is counterproductive…. The time for reality is here! People can deal with and overcome when the reality of the situation is known. They will comply with conditions that are based on medical advice. But fudging the figures, when these people from low risk countries are trying to plan to come to Thailand is a recipe for NO TOURISTS….. Tourists are much more savvy about the situation in most countries. They can’t be fooled, hoodwinked, coerced….unless they are in Thailand :)))

  5. “Utterly unbelievable new-infection and death figures for today”

    Not just today, @Dynamo Dave, but most of last week.

    I checked them with the director of the provincial hospital in my province on Friday as something seemed wrong, and he told me that the figures I showed him (from here / NBT) for his province, which he’s responsible for collating, didn’t show “new” cases but “active” cases.

    He couldn’t say if that applied to other provinces or the mistake was the fault of the CCSA, NBT, or Thaiger but he was definite that, at least for his province, they were NOT new cases, as reported here, but active cases.
