BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand on Thursday reported 11 new coronavirus cases and no new deaths, bringing its total to 3,065 confirmed cases and 57 fatalities since the outbreak started in January.

There are 2,945 patients who have recovered since the outbreak started.

These recent reports support the narrative that Thailand is free of Covid-19 infection risk. The only people who are at risk are those unfortunate to be stuck outside Thailand in countries that haven't yet eradicated the virus. If any Thai people are watching these reports, seems like it might be harder and harder to get them to comply with precautions. 

Really?

 

The numbers are creeping up daily......

Did you miss the part where it says they are all returnees from abroad in state quarantine?

Yes I did - I didn't read correctly.

 

However I still maintain that the amount of testing is dropping, so therefore the number of cases will of course be less.

There were 11 new cases of Covid-19 over a 24-hour period, Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin, spokesman of the government’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA), said on Thursday (May 28).

 

The total number of Covid-19 patients since the outbreak increased to 3,065.

 

Six patients -- five male masseuses and one female housemaid -- had returned from Qatar on May 22 and underwent quarantine in Bangkok; three of the six are asymptomatic. All reported positive on May 26.

 

Four men were working in an international company’s camp and returned from Kuwait on May 24 and underwent quarantine in Bangkok. They had fever and runny nose.

 

One female traveller, 32, had returned from India on May 22 and underwent quarantine in Samut Prakan. She was asymptomatic and detected as a Covid-19 patient on May 25.

 

Meanwhile, 14 patients fully recovered and returned home.

 

As of May 28, the total number of confirmed cases in the country still stood at 3,065 -- 63 are under treatment, 2,945 have recovered and been discharged, and 57 died.

 

Globally, the total number of confirmed cases is around 5.6 million with about 350,000 deaths.

 

Since the Covid-19 outbreak in Thailand, 621 confirmed cases have come from abroad while 2,444 patients, or around 80 per cent of total cases, were infected locally.

Many countries only test if you have symptoms. No one with symptoms, no tests.

Testing is not the issue at this point. There have been so few cases in all of Thailand for over 14 days. And even if they did test more. They would have to test the same people every day as the virus can bloat dormant for 14 days. Also the hospitals are overwhelmed with sick people. We would definitely know if there were that many sick people in the hospitals.

What if a country only tested people coming in from abroad. What would those reports look like?

11 from just a few plane loads.

 

I wonder what the numbers would be if they actually tested just the equivalent of a few plane loads of asymptomatic people from each province nationwide on a daily basis.
