Thailand reports 51 new coronavirus cases, three more deaths

Recommended Posts

If these data are correct, then why is the Prayut Government consideration a total lockdown for 2 weeks?

It’s amazing how we are in the middle of South East Asia and Thailand’s so far doing better than lots of other countries including in Europe like Italy for one. We’re pretty lucky considering everything and the fact that we are technically within driving range of where it originated.

While I agree the numbers are no doubt higher, maybe even a lot higher, don't you think that we would hear about more up-country hospitals overflowing and bodies piling up at the local wats if it was like 100 times higher? The hospitals and clinics near us in the outskirts of Bangkok aren't bursting with patients. So, barring that kind of underground news - everyone has a cellphone nowadays, so it would be tough to hide - the only metric we have are the "official" numbers. Since the numbers are not rising exponentially...and in the last few days, actually going down a little maybe there is reason to believe things are getting better and hiding in our homes is working. How many more cases would it take for the difference in reported numbers and actual numbers to be so obvious that it could not remain hidden? While Thailand doesn't have the most free press on the planet, it ain't China either. Fire away but when you do, please have some sort of evidence that the numbers are so much higher than being reported.

Absolutely, but you are faced with bedroom experts here (formerly barroom experts but the bars are closed).

That Jim is the 64,000 dollar question.  So what is not being shared with the masses.  This is what worries me.

Based on even the steady +/- 100 new cases per day figure, there wasn't much justification for the latest threats to ramp up the curfew and various other measures, if we get a few days at the 50 level then there'll be even less. I'm guessing the authorities are in headless chicken mode, as they are in a number of countries, and simply want to be seen to be doing something, anything. As somebody said recently in the UK government, they're basically damned whatever they do. If they turn the screws further on self-isolation then they'll be accused of going overboard if it works and numbers start to decline, while they'll also be accused of not doing enough if it doesn't work and numbers continue to increase. Who'd want to be a politician at the moment?

Certainly doesn't help in the UK when the Chief Medical Officer for Scotland's advice is to the mere minions of Scotland is not to move around, stay at home etc.... then swannees off to her second home 44 miles away each weekend totalling contravening her own advice....she certainly gives the Thai gov officials a run for their money, except they don't have to fall on their own sword after such stupidity...

It’s quite possible they had a few more pneumonia ones though. 
Maybe one or two.

She’s resigned now, but you’re right. Do what I say.....

Yes, Anutin would know. He can simply ask the NIH lab and the army lab. They are the ones doing the confirmations.

instead of thinking china lies all the time...and USA and England ar perfectly honest, factor this in.

 

China says they have it under control. businesses are opening. no problems except a second out break they got under control. do you believe that? i do for a good reason. every major country has large teams in China verifying this info. They have to. If china is telling the truth then do as the chinese. these people have been there for a long time. china keeps saying the same thing. we do have a concern. no journalist wants to report all is well. they want deaths, number gong up, disasters. one will eventually exaggerate with some fake news...right? so far no comments from them. trump discrimination against chinese has cost 12,000 USA lives. are you encouraging discrimination to cause deaths.

Maybe they are concerned that the mere banning of Songkran festivities will fall on deaf ears and are looking to possibly enhance lock down measures over that time period. All very well just saying that Thai NY has been cancelled until later in the year and expect everyone to adhere.

 

Would expect that a few would be looking to break ranks, as would likely be the case in the West if the 31Dec NY parties were to be banned.
