So, in summary,

The entire world is behind on tests... except for South Korea and Taiwan

Singapore  tested and traced  thoroughly and were doing  really well but has now  seen a  spike due to migrant workers who share  rooms (12 to a  room) in dorms with shared bathrooms

Numbers High or Low Thailand similar to other countries is decimating the country's economy over 32 dead out of 69 million population.

 

In the first week of February 2010, the Thailand Department of Epidemiology announced the Second Wave of the H1N1 (Swine Flu) outbreak. From May 3rd. 2009 to 10 March 2010 (about 9 months).

The accumulated number of confirmed H1N1 flu patients in the second wave totaled 35,446 persons. The number of deaths was 208 persons.
 
Does anyone who was in Thailand in 2009 - 2010 even remember this what was classed as a severe epidemic? 

 

Remember the drastic H1N1 control measures? Well - there weren't any.

 

The 2nd wave played out with a vaccine that finally came available.

 

Today's Covid-19 figures (since Jan 2020) - a little over 3 months of epidemic. 2473 total confirmed Covid-19 cases, total deaths to date is 33. 

Extrapolating the 33 Covid-19 Deaths out to 9 months even at the current number gives a total of an estimated 99 deaths (likely it would be about 79 deaths due to an expected declining rate.

 

79 to 99 Covid-19 deaths in Thailand extrapolated over 9 months versus H1N1 208 Deaths 2009 - 2010 in Thailand over nine months (for just the second wave of H1N1. 

 

No drastic measures were taken in over 2 years of the first and second Waves of H1N1 combined...

Yet the Thai Country and Thai Economy survived. 

As far as I understand, H1N1 didn't transmit asymptomatically.  There is a huge difference with this beast

agreed on Singapore.  Their process driven robotic (just don't ask them to innovate) ways underscores their thus far successful handling of this

I don't really believe the numbers either. 

They seem to be doing the right things now with the imports/returnees after the phi noi fiasco in early March.  

 

 

 I dont really believe them numbers either,  who does ? , Thais ..

   They seem to be doing the right things now , sure .

    Less tested , equal to less positives and  less deaths . Keep Virus panic , away.

   Much better results , than America , and Europe , they not  wear face masks , dirty .

    World Health Organisation , take note .. Amazing Thailand .

those infected and death rate just doesn't add up. Especially when you compare it to numbers in Singapore and Malaysia. Something is definitely off.

 

Even the number of recoveries seems off ! I doubt thai health care is better than Singapore or Japan.

It is not only Thailand. There are a number of countries that fit this bill and they are being looked at.

 

Cambodia, Laos, and places further afield. (Cambodia never stopped flights from China until they finally stopped all flights, Phnom Penh was literally crawling with Chinese all of January & February...and even had an outbreak of a respiratory illness then but mild).  Japan also has fewer cases than it should.

 

These disparities among countries are receiving a lot of attention from researchers.

 

For example

among others

really interesting

How is it possible 50 new cases when no testing been done for 3 days now as total tests still stands at 71860. They have said they have a 15minute test now, did they mean 15 days? 

Obviously I'm not as smart or as good at math as i thought, have masters in classical mathematics seen some awesome formula, but can't get the grey matter around the one being used by thailand

Thanks so much for posting that link Sheryl.

I had not heard about this line of research until now. i have just read a few other articles regarding the possible (at this stage highly theoretical) link between the prevalence of  TB vaccination and the more limited spread of Covid in certain countries.

Maybe there is something in this. Great news for the world if there is!
