Several milestones were passed in Phuket regarding Covid-19 in the past few days as the death toll hit 60 while Sandbox infections passed 100, daily infections were over 250, and the total number of Covid-19 infections since the beginning of the third wave passed 9,000. More than 5,000 people have been released from medical care or supervision though.

The past few days have been particularly deadly with 2 new deaths being reported today as well as 5 the day before. All 5 of those deaths were considered high risk due to age or medical conditions.

  1. 28 year old smoking man vaccinated with Sinovac, with heart disease and renal failure.
  2. 38 year old man vaccinated with Sinovac, with high blood pressure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
  3. 66 year old unvaccinated woman with kidney disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure.
  4. 79 year old unvaccinated man with no known health issues.
  5. 82 year old woman in high-risk area with kidney disease, diabetes, gout, and high blood pressure. Vaccination status is unknown.

The death toll stood at 20 as this month began, meaning that there have been twice as many deaths this month as the combined total from April to the end of August.

ANTIGEN TEST KITS

Today 93 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.
