Wife was just saying today's figures of 111 includes 40 returning from Indonesia, if thats is the case then the real new infections would be 60.

Possibly still a flattening or downward trend emerging.

 

 

We had a similar spike last month caused by Thai Muslim returnees from Islamic festival in Malaysia which lasted several days and attracted 15,000 faithful. This is lunacy when the rest of us are supposed to live like hermits and face fines and prison if we don't.

Would be helpful to know the provincial breakdown. Since there is a delayed effect to having symptoms and being tested in most cases this could be the wave that likely occurred when people fled BKK a few weeks ago.

There is such a list. I stumbled upon it just yesterday. Go to this web site. https://covidtracker.5lab.co/en/ (it's becoming quite well known now) Then click any red i button. In the box that opens click on 'data by province'.

 

A list of all the provinces that have cases reported are listed.

According to info Thailand has now tested over 70,000 people which is far greater than Japan. And yes many of today's cases are from Thai Muslims returning from Indonesia.

Three foreigners succumb to Covid-19 as 111 new cases reported in Thailand

By The Nation

Thailand’s total number of Covid-19 patients rose to 2,258, with 111 new cases confirmed over a 24-hour period while three foreigners died, Taweesin Visanuyothin, spokesman of the government's Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, said on Wednesday (April 8).

The cases can be divided into four groups:

 

The first group of 37 had had close contact with others previously confirmed as infected (mostly in Bangkok 18, Nontaburi 7, Yala 8).

 

The second group comprised 11 people of whom two Thais had just returned from overseas, four were working in crowded areas or close to foreigners, three had gone to crowded areas, and two are medical staff.

 

The third group of 21 are being investigated on the source of the infection (18 in Phuket).

 

The last group of 42 had returned from Indonesia and are now under state quarantine.

 

Meanwhile, 64 people have fully recovered and returned home.

 

The three foreigners who died included a 48-year-old Russian man who had travelled from Phuket to Chonburi. He had visited a hospital on March 25 and later returned home for self-quarantine.

 

A 69-year-old Indian businessman, who also had diabetes and heart disease, died after being admitted to a hospital on March 17.

 

A 69-year-old American man in Buriram province, who died, also suffered from chronic kidney disease.

 

As of April 8, the total number of confirmed cases in the country stood at 2369 -- 1,451 are under treatment of whom 23 are in a critical condition -- 888 have recovered and been discharged, and there have been 30 deaths.

 

Globally, there are more than 1.4 million confirmed cases and over 80,000 deaths.

Interesting that no Thai deaths yesterday.

I believe that the 40 that tested positive on return from Indonesia & the other 60 or so whe came with them are safely tucked away in quarantine still shows a daily reduction.

Another day of less than 40 infections would still be moving in the right direction

considering what is happening in the UK, Spain, US etc

But on the grand scale of things, around 100 cases per day on average is not a bad number. Of course, if it starts rising, and reaches the 200 mark, then a 24 hour curfew would make sense

Only 30 deaths. That's so low. Are these numbers right? Maybe it's 300 but still low.

I will ask that pertinent Question? So now are we seeing that possible uptick in numbers from those who failed to heed warnings and still socially gathered in violation of what they were told.  Or from those that still gathered in groups either on the beach or in bars, which id not shut, or from still running around without personal safety at thought.  Could these also be the first numbers from those that traveled home to the provinces?  Just a few Questions as there is no listing, or is it a release from the tests that have been backlogged....

Ask to many questions and you will get the answer to none.....or lies.....or half truths.....or more questions, but asked of you.....by people in a darkened room with the light shone directly at you.

Hang on for the Thai covid19 exponential rollercoaster ride.Get your tickets ready for the Songkran shutdown.

 

        Wow.

   That could be a serious a 24-7  curfew,  for a long time .

    Cut back on the testing ,  keep the results down, to acceptable levels . 555

The high increase was a.o. caused by the repatriation of Thai from Indonesia, 42 of them tested positive.

Maybe it's 3,000 or 30,000 and we still wouldn't know. I know people insist that it must be about as low as reported since if it were a lot higher, we'd be seeing social media stories about it or bodies lying in the streets. But, that is based on some misguided assumptions. The U.S. CIA Factbook states that the annual death rate in Thailand (see link below) is 8.3/1,000. That means in a country of 69 million people, 573k people die every year and that translates into almost 48k/month. So, 48,000 people died in Thailand last month. Did you see any of those deaths or hear about them? If you saw a mention of a death on social media, did you see 48,000 unique deaths mentioned?

 

If there was even a 10% increase in the death rate in the first three months of this year (meaning an extra 15,000 deaths), I'm guessing most of us would still not directly notice and neither would the average Thai person. So, yes, one can simply not report the numbers (by not testing or whatever) and none of the rest of us truly have a mechanism to refute it. And, worse, this misguided set of assumptions that certainly we would notice an extra 10,000, 20,000, or 30,000 deaths this year actually bolsters that ability to obscure it if it's happening. 

 

I'm not saying all of that proves that it really is happening that way. But, I am saying that the confidence that we would see it is totally fabricated in our heads simply because it's hard to believe such large numbers could die and we wouldn't know. But, think about it...large numbers are dying all the time and we are not directly aware.
