In the last 24 hours, the Phuket Sandbox uncovered 4 new infections, the same as yesterday, and 2 people have died of Covid-19 in Phuket, bringing the total this week to 22 deaths. Today brought 219 new infections, the lowest since September 9, pushing the total infections in the third wave of Covid-19 starting the beginning of April over 10000 with 10,169 total infections

61 people left hospital care bringing the total back under 2,000, and 47 new beds were added yesterday, bringing the percentage of occupied beds at 80.81%, the best figure since September 8.

The death toll stood at 20 as this month began, and has now reached 71, meaning that there have been over 2 and a half times as many deaths this month as the combined total from April to the end of August. The past 7 days have had an average of 3 deaths per day.

ANTIGEN TEST KITS

Today 47 people tested positive in Phuket for Covid-19 using an antigen test kit.

People test with ATKs 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.
