Thailand saw 84 new Covid-19 infections and 1 death as reported today by the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration. This brings Thailand’s total infections above 29,000 to 29,031 and 95 deaths, with 1,268 active cases being treated currently. 


Today’s death, a 29 year old woman living in Bangkok, had been mistakenly told she tested negative on March 21, and died on April 1. She was infected by her parents and was afflicted with down syndrome as well as cardiomegaly, a heart enlargement condition, and heart valve regurgitation.


Of the 84 new Covid-19 cases in Thailand, 58 were locally contracted infections, 11 were discovered from proactive testing, and 15 were from international travellers. 30 of the local infections were in Bangkok with less than 10 infections each found in Suphan Buri, Samut Sakhon, Nonthaburi, and Nakhon Pathom. Narathiwat, Chonburi, and Tak each had only 1 infection.


The 15 international infections had Thai and foreign citizens arriving from 10 countries. China and Malaysia each brought 3 infections, 2 from Bahrain, and one each from Bangladesh, Czech Republic, France, India, Switzerland, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates.


Globally nearly 131 million people have been infected (about 637,000 new today) with over 22 million active cases (nearly 100,000 in serious condition) and today’s 10,368 deaths bring the total casualties to 2.85 million. The US has the most infections by far with over 31 million, more than the next 3 countries (Brazil, India and France) combined. Thailand is 116th worldwide in the number of infections.

    Do any healthy people die from this virus?
    Some say there are, but is that a myth like a abominable snowman?
