Of the 24,104 total cases, 19,799 (82.14%) had recovered, including 885 discharged over the past 24 hours. 4,225 were still receiving treatment, with 1,531 undergoing treatment at field hospitals. The death toll has remained the same at 80.

Covid-19 cases worldwide have increased by 437,780 in 24 hours to 107.85 million. The worldwide death toll rose by 14,018 to 2.36 million. The US had the most cases at 27.90 million, up 96,806, and the most deaths at 483,200, up 3,432.

Thailand’s Health Minister, Anutin Charnvirakul, says the first stage of human trials of a locally-produced vaccine will get underway next month. The jab is a joint collaboration between the Government Pharmaceutical Organisation and the Faculty of Tropical Medicine of Mahidol University. It’s understood the vaccine has performed satisfactorily in animal testing, showing an ability to stimulate immunity.

According to a Thai PBS World report, Kiatipoom Wongrachit from the Public Health Ministry, says the GPO is very experienced in the production of flu vaccines and is collaborating with Mahidol University’s Faculty of Tropical Medicine, with support from the US-based Program for Appropriate Technology in Health.

    Cases and more cases and more infections, and lions and tigers and bears OH MY!

    Are these basket cases? Cases of baskets? Just in Cases?

    They can’t be cases of sick people because nobody is dying. They can’t be cases of viruses because the WHO said 99.6% of cases have only mild symptoms.

    What is a case? Some body please give me a good answer and tell me why anyone should be concerned about cases.

    A “case” is someone who tests positive for Covid 19.




    You should be “concerned” about “cases” if / when they’re the result of targeted testing because they indicate the spread of the virus and the sources.

    … and FWIW plenty of people who are “sick” – the vast majority – aren’t “dying”.

    … and the WHO have never “said 99.6% of cases have only mild symptoms” – even Trump claimed (wrongly) that it was 99%.

      When the PCR tests can detect a positive result in fruit, how reliable are they on humans?
      The test is looking for SARS CoV-2 which it does by searching for a specific sequence in the person’s DNA.
      The sequence is CTCCCTTTGTTGTGTTGT
      The problem with that is, the sequence of SARS-CoV-2 is identical to a genetic sequence we all already have: Chromosome 8

      Human Chromosome 8 is closely affiliated with development of the intellect and some other health related issues, resistance to things like respiratory problems but also it’s associated with the development of the intellect and our ability to resist cancer.

        Molly, your chromosome 8 must be on the undeveloped side otherwise you’d have wondered why since “we all” have it, “we all” don’t test positive 😮 😮 😮

      A “case” is someone who tests positive for…Sars-cov-2, not Covid 19.

      Covid 19 is the disease you can get when you are infected with the virus Sars-cov-2, most people are not sick so therefore they do not have covid 19.

    “most people are not sick so therefore they do not have covid 19.”

    Ummm ….. no.

    Most people don’t have ingrowing toenails so therefore they do not have toenails …..?

    Most people don’t have a headache so therefore they do not have a head?

    I don’t think so, Manu ….. 😮 😮 😮
