BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand on Friday reported one new coronavirus infection and no new deaths, taking its total confirmed cases to 3,102, of which 58 have been fatalities.

 

The new case was a Thai man who had returned from Kuwait and was in quarantine, where most of Thailand's recent cases have been detected, said Taweesin Wisanuyothin, a spokesman for the government's COVID-19 Administration Centre.

 

There are 2,971 patients who have recovered.

Returnees with this one added

 

Kuwait, 32 cases positive out of a total of 174 people = 18%

Saudi Arabia, 12 cases positive out of a total of 79 people = 15%

Indonesia, 65 positive cases out of a total of 451 people = 14%

 

UK, 9 with high fever none tested positive that has been reported, out of a total of 265 = 0%

I'd guess because of (lack of) testing at the sending country.

So, when Thai people return on these flights, they all automatically go into a 14-day quarantine. But, they are not all tested with tests that run through the two reference labs, right? They are only tested if they show symptoms (like a fever) and we don't know if the tests are run through the two labs, right?

The trend continues, just stunning!from a population of 70 mil only one case from all those tested daily and the returnees, so amazing almost defies belief.

 

Surely the WHO and Trump and Boris must be making private contact with Prayut at this very moment to garnish the secrets of this miraculous policy against Covid!! perhaps its the temp guns at 7/11 or should the worlds populace just eat somtam.... never mind a vaccine.

 

If only they would be a little more transparent in their methodology so we could share and relish in the success.

Only MoPH knows. From what I've seen about the process, the reference lab tests only come after there is already a positive from the "lesser" labs, if they come. That'd be three tests for a confirmation. 

 

In the charts where the testing numbers are and is updated every few weks, a couple of weeks ago it looked like NIH lab, one of the reference labs, had done around 4-5k tests (the slide is always so foggy that it's hard to read though). It's a small lab, BIDI next door has a bigger one.

I like leaks. Like this gem in MoPH's own guidelines:

See that column "News" there? That'd be this thread. As you can see, multiple are confirmed and admitted, but not published in News. Gotta love sloppy documentation. It's from their own internal system that's behind a login.

 

That document is a nice little peephole into the secret world of MoPH.

it is the FREE vitamin D from the SUN that kept numbers low and the poor don't have money for airco rooms

Vit D, healthy lifestyle, healthy body & immune system can certainly help your body fight the virus but cannot stop you catching it and being infected. Likely you'll be one of the silent carriers, asymptomatic.

Every day you go on and on about vitamin D being the miracle - you are starting to sound like Trump.

Show us any evidence!

Why have the Southern states in the USA (Texas, Florida or Southern California), which get lots of Sun and vitamin D got so many cases if vitamin D is the answer? What about the Middle East?

Show me any verifiable evidence and I will retract - if not please stop posting this nonsense.

Would be nice to see the actual data. Or, even summaries of the actual data.

It's certainly nothing to do with ample vitamin D, I looked into this a while back and found that Thailand has very high levels of vitamin D deficiency. Much, much more than you would think.....

 

Why? Because they hate the sun and avoid it wherever possible. If that means sitting in a room with a fan then that's what they do
