In the latest and most severe wave of Covid-19 infections, 175,732 cases have been recorded since April 1.

Hmm! . . . there's a thinker?

Today:         2,331 new cases         40 Covid-19 related deaths        i.e. deaths to cases ratio = 1:58

Yesterday   3,000 new cases         19 deaths                                       i.e. deaths to cases ratio = 1:158

Unless I'm missing something pretty obvious and fundamental, towards explaining this vastly higher proportion, i.e. 272% higher, of today's deaths, compared to yesterday's, then these figures must surely be questionable, if not wholly inaccurate.

Surely, given that there is still a significant wave of Covid infection, there should be a reasonably similar proportion of deaths to new cases, each day.

Come on, someone, tell me what I'm not seeing, or get on that hotline to the Public Health Ministry or CCSA and tell them to get a new calculator . . . or maybe a new person that's playing with the calculator.

I am expat working in  Thailand so disappointed in the quality of indepth journalism and reporting across all media outlets.

Sorry to hear that. Let's hope this forum manages to improve on that pretty dismal view.

Hi, John and welcome to T-T!

Please feel free to tell us a bit about yourself in 'Introductions'. It's good to pick-up on those sometimes differing regional or geographical perspectives.

And check-out the Guidelines, too, when you get a free minute. They're there to help us all enjoy our time here.

Happy posting

I find it very hard to believe that Thailand has received that amount of vaccine
