With one new death and one new Phuket Sandbox traveller infected, Phuket continues its upward climb in Covid-19 infection rates. Yesterday saw a record 257 Covid-19 infections in one day (Monday), one more than the last new record high in Phuket the day before. For Tuesday Phuket has reported 119 new infections.

The death from Monday’s totals brought the total number of deaths from Covid-19 in Phuket to 20, with 8 of those deaths occurring during August, 2 more than the number who died in July. The rolling 7 day infection total of 1,452 is now 16 times higher than the original threshold that would cause the Phuket Sandbox to be reconsidered, revised or cancelled.

Breakdowns of Phuket data, all collected since the start of the third wave of Covid-19 on April 3, are included below by the numbers.

ANTIGEN TEST KITS

People test with antigen test kits when they are at-risk, but the results are not considered 100% conclusive. If someone tests positive, they will undergo an RT-PCR test to confirm the result. The case will only be added to the official numbers after that RT-PCR test is returned positive. Those in Phuket with a positive result from an ATK are moved to a Covid-19 Care Centre for safety as they await the results of an RT-PCR test.

People testing positive with ATKs, unconfirmed until tested with RT-PCR tests 47 +37
