The total number of Covid-19 cases in Thailand rose to 1,651 with 127 new infections confirmed over a 24-hour period while one person died, Taweesin Visanuyothin, spokesman of the government's Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, said on Tuesday (March 31).

 

The cases can be divided into three groups.

 

The first group of 62 are connected to cluster cases -- four people had attended a boxing event in a stadium, 11 had worked and been to entertainment venues, and 47 had had close contact with others previously confirmed as infected

 

The second group comprised 49 people of whom 23 had just returned from overseas (17 Thais and six foreigners ), nine were working in crowded areas or close to foreigners, three are medical staff, six went to crowded areas, and eight got infected from other sources.

 

The last group of 16 are being investigated for the source of the infection.

 

Meanwhile, 215 people have fully recovered and returned home.

 

A 48-year-old male musician, who also had diabetes, cancer and hepatitis, died of respiratory failure.

 

As of March 31, the total number of confirmed cases in the country stood at 1,651 -- 1,299 are under treatment, of whom 23 are in a critical condition -- 342 have recovered and been discharged, and there have been 10 deaths.

 

Of the confirmed cases, 1407 are Thais and 244 are other nationals.

 

A great majority of the 127 new cases are in Bangkok -- 74, followed by Nonthaburi, Phuket, and Yala (six each); Nakhon Pathum 3; Pathum Thani, Samut Sakorn, Si Sa Ket, and Uttaradit (two each); and one patient each in Chonburi, Songkhla, Chiang Mai, Ubon Ratchathani, Surin, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Sa Kaeo, Phitsanulok, Nong Bua Lamphu, and Chumphon provinces.

 

Thirteen people are under investigation

 

Globally, there are more than 750,000 confirmed cases in 199 countries and around 37,000 deaths.

With social distancing 100+ will probably be the norm for the next few weeks. 

 

Without, the numbers will increase exponentially. 

 

Might be too late. Case in point, Italy. It's been awhile since their lockdown and numbers there are still growing.

Only so many results are released each day, approx 500

100 or so positive and 400 negative.

by that postulating 20% of the population are infected

Good news, it's actually gone down a bit from the trend of the last five days. I know the numbers are unreliable, but look at what people are saying about the statistics in the UK and US, they're no better than Thailand's. To be honest, given the uncertainty around the virus and its effects, I think I'd rather be in Thailand with a steady increase of 120-140/day than in a place where "better" data show that they're doubling every two or three days.

 

I know, just call me an ostrich, lol.

Italy might count "normal" deaths as corona

 

total opposite from thailand, where corona deaths are masked by viral pneumonia

 

FEAR PEOPLE .... give up your rights
