BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand's public health ministry said on Monday that two more people have died from the new coronavirus, bringing the total number of deaths in the country to nine.

 

The two deaths included a 54-year-old Thai man in the southern province of Yala who had recently returned from Malaysia, and a 56-year-old Thai woman in Bangkok, said Anupong Sujariyakul, a senior official at the public health ministry's Department of Disease Control.

 

The two died on Sunday, he said.

 

Earlier on Monday, Thailand reported 136 new coronavirus cases, raising the total number of infections to 1,524.

 

Among 1,388 patients still hospitalized, 23 were in critical condition, Anupong said.

6,673 were in the pending results queue on 28th. If about 2000 of those test positive and CFR is something like 4%, that queue alone will yield 80 deaths. And that's just the official queue. Soon this will become the new normal and not news anymore.

roughly the same number of cases than :

Indonesia with 114 deaths

Philippines 71 deaths

 

But Malaysia 35 deaths

...and Russia 8

So go figure out.... Probably because Anutin is the best ! 😅

 

What is sad is that this country reports Thai and farangs cases separately. I haven't seen that in any other countries. Sad meaning.

They are taking this "mask thing" to the extreme.

Do you really have to wear the mask if you're teaching online classes? 😉

Yes. 

 

You must blend with the herd.

Yes, he needs to wear a mask because he was teaching from a hospital yesterday, and the hospital requires everyone to wear a mask. I know this teacher. His baby had a scheduled checkup yesterday.

All of this is just raw data.
What would be interesting to know is if the deceased and critical cases have other pathologies than Covid-19 (which is almost certain, but the authorities are careful not to say).
Do not forget either that in Thailand there are very few elderly people;
the average life in this country is around 74 years, i.e. 11 years less than in Japan, 9 to 10 years less than in Italy ...

True, they are very careful not to not include underlying factors in their reporting.

2 more deaths from virus. 62 more dead on the road. Thailand has 2 problems Not 1 But one of the problems they will never do anything about. Both in my mind are very serious problems

Still basically a nothing burger compared to road deaths, pedestrian deaths, pulmonary issues, cancer, and a myriad of other factors. An entire country in lockdown over 1500 cases and 9 deaths?

 

Does that seen inane to anyone other than me?
