With 234 new Covid-19 cases reported, the total infections in the Phuket Sandbox inches to nearly 6,000, deaths have seen a sharp rise on the island. 2 new deaths reported last night to bring the total to 30 Covid-19 deaths since April, a jump of 50% since Sunday. Over the last 5 months, 20 people had died of Covid-19 in Phuket, but yesterday saw 2 deaths, the day before saw 1 death, Sunday had 3 deaths and late reporting confirmed 4 deaths on Saturday.

Despite the daily report Saturday evening reporting zero deaths, later information Sunday updated that figure to confirm 4 deaths the day before. Then on Monday details of 3 Thai men dying from Covid-19 the day before were released. One man was 66 with kidney disease, one was 51 and unvaccinated, and one was 80 with 1 vaccine shot. The latter 2 had come in high-risk contact with an infected person.

Tuesday’s report confirmed that a fully vaccinated 77 year old Thai man had died on Monday of Covid-19. And today reports 2 deaths on Phuket from Covid-19 though details have not been released yet.

With the rise in death, the daily infections are now over 200 every day for the last 9 days. Officials have added over 300 beds to keep the hospital occupancy rate around 77%. Officials are now looking to move “green” mild Covid-19 cases into community isolation centres or otherwise out of medical facilities.

Breakdowns of Phuket data from the Phuket Provincial Public Health Office report late last night, all collected since the start of the third wave of Covid-19 on April 3, are included below by the numbers.

DEATHS Total number of deaths in Phuket from Covid-19 since April 3 30 +2

 

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.
