The body of a train passenger found dead in Prachuap Khiri Khan’s Thap Sakae district on Tuesday (March 31) has tested positive for Covid-19 virus.

 

The unnamed 57-year-old man was found dead in front of a restroom after his train from Bangkok to Narathiwat in the far South stopped for a rest break, according to State Railway of Thailand inspector-general Thanaphol Dummanee.

 

The victim had diabetes and was returning from a trip abroad to Pakistan. He had boarded the Bang Sue-Sungai Kolok train on March 30 after a train guard measured his temperature at 36 Celsius.

 

Despite finding no evidence of fever, the guard asked the passenger to rest before travelling as he was suffering from a headache and vomiting. He declined.

 

Tests on the body at Songkhla hospital came back positive for Covid-19 on Wednesday.

 

Eight personnel on the train were sent home for 14 days of self-quarantine while a list of about 10 passengers was sent to the Public Health Ministry.

 

The train has been disinfected and cleaned thoroughly.

It looks from the latest news that more and more people are dying outside hospitals because of the virus. It shows how far the numbers are from reality.

There were other instances like this?

I’m reading a book about the 1918 pandemic. The author told the story of a man in Cape Town who jumped on a tram for a three mile travel home. On the journey the ticket collector collapsed and died along with three passengers, all in the space of a few minutes. He jumped off early and walked home. It was just influenza, but it was devastating.

The average age of those who’ve died from the virus in Italy is 79.5.

Italy has one of the largest populations of people over 50 in comparison to many European countries. Rather than relying purely on percentages , one needs to look under figures for further information.

The inclusion of the the headache and vomiting, could be indicative of poor blood glucose control, and this may have contributed to his death.
