Back in January, when the first reported cases of coronavirus in Thailand were confirmed as being Chinese nationals aged 61, 74, 68 and 73, respectively, it appeared to reinforce the idea that only the elderly or those with existing health conditions were at risk from COVID-19.

 

And while it is true that the elderly and sick remain most at risk, many more younger people in Thailand have been confirmed as having the virus.

 

According to data released by the Ministry of Public Health’s Department of Disease Control, the average age of COVID-19 patients in Thailand is 40 years old.

 

The youngest COVID-19 patient in Thailand so far is just 6 months old, while the oldest is 79.

 

At the time of publishing, Thailand had reported a total of 1136 cases, 1034 of those were still receiving treatment in hospital, while 97 have made a full recovery and been discharged. There have been 5 deaths as a result of COVID-19 in Thailand.

On Thursday, health officials revealed that Bangkok and its neighbouring provinces had the highest concentration of COVID-19 cases, where one infected patient was found to infect an average of 3.4 other people over a one week period. 

 

Health officials also revealed that Thailand is likely to experience a further spike in cases due to improvements in the testing process, more testing kits being available and widespread screening now being undertaken nationwide, including at more than 300 road checkpoints set up throughout the country.

It's 5g mind control so it doesn't affect kids, only people who are not susceptible, such as the old

The 40 years old mostly have a unhealthy lifestyle, work many hours, no sport, no healthy food, lots of pollution in BKK, long traffic hours...so it's not strange.

This age difference of victims does partially explain the lower death rates here in comparison with Italy for example.

The  death rate here might go up once the virus hits areas unlike Bangkok where the elderly folks are living..

You betcha.

 

I've just come back from getting my visa extended to find seven, middle aged plus women, huddled together, gambling, in the matriarchs house.

 

She, 90ish, sitting out front, watching over her great-great-grandson.

 

With friends like that, etc.....

It does not bode well for Thailand. :wacko:

 

In Italy, 99% of the people who died from Covid-19 are over 80 years old;
and people with an average age of 40, even if they have the disease have no symptoms and are immune to it without needing to go to the hospital.

Here in Isaan, the corona chickens have come home to roost.  That will change the numbers—and not in a good way.

Interested in where you get your stats for Covid-19 deaths in Italy.

 

Seem to be rather adrift of these stats:

Thai statitics ? 

 

0 + 0,3 + 0,7 + 1,7 + 5,7 + 16,9 + 24,6 + 24 = 73,9 

 

it should make a total of 100; but that doesn't do it; phony figures as usual ...

 

What I write comes from here, it is written by a Swiss doctor on his blog;

it's in french but your friend Google traduction will help you 

 

" We know today that Covid-19 is benign in the absence of preexisting pathology. The most recent data from Italy confirm that 99% of deceased people suffered from one to three chronic pathologies (hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancers, etc.) with an average age of victims of 79.5 years (median at 80.5) and very few losses below age 65. "

I don't think it is that, I think there are two strains of virus, one mutated from the other and far more aggressive. The overall mortality rate around the globe is about 2%, but in Italy is nearer 10%.

Elderly patients almost always have co-morbidities. This allows doctors to choose what in their opinion killed the patient, and these doctors are hardly gods who never make a mistake...and these are not autopsy results we are talking about here at an inquest open to scrutiny and peer review.

I am convinced that Thai doctors signing off deaths of elderly people to put the cause of death as the co-morbidity, not to the virus, so if a patient has a heart issue, say hypertension, the doctor may well be rewarded if he says the death is a coronary event rather than CoVid-19. This will skew the results to show what we see. Very few cases of the virus and the lowest mortality rate in the world.

Average age of people known to be infected versus average age or prior  health of those that have died ?

It is  not discriminatory  in  who it infects. It is more likely to be severe in the  elderly and otherwise  health compromised.
