Just 16 days after Phuket saw domestic Covid-19 infections surpass 100 cases in a day, the island has now passed the 200 mark with 209 new Covid-19 infections reported yesterday. The Phuket Provincial Public Health Office also released data confirming 1 more Phuket Sandbox international traveller infection and 1 death from Covid-19.

The surge in cases has now pushed the 7-day rolling today to over 1000, after passing 900 yesterday and 800 the day before. The current 7-day total in the province is 1,046. The numbers on Phuket over the past week, per capita, are well in excess of Bangkok which was plunged into curfews and harsh restrictions due to surging Covid-19 in July.

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.

TOTALS

WEEKLY Total new cases in a rolling tally of the last 7 days 1,046 +108
TOTAL Total Covid-19 cases in Phuket since April 3 (not including the demographics listed below) 3,553 +209
DEATHS Total number of deaths in Phuket from Covid-19 since April 3 19 1

 

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 48 -55
People in Covid-19 Care Centres in Phuket 492 +49
