This article says that there are over 20,000 thais that have tested positive for Covid Antibodies.

How come they dont report the 20,000 covid antibody positives on their prestigious case count? 

 

How many more out there, and is the virus still floating around the population?

and to add to the confusion worldwide some say it appears these antibodies don't remain long which could indicate immunity from reinfection is slim. All the more reason to keep the door closed on entering Thailand..

1 to 3 years seems to be what people are expecting. More than enough to eradicate the virus and booster shots are possible too.

What folks are expecting and what's happening differ, more study is definitely needed but it doesn't look promising..

As I have explained elsewhere loss of specific circulating antibodies does not  necessarily mean no immunity or loss of immunity. Antibodies are just one part of a multifaceted and complex immune response.

much is still unknown, but immunity doesn't look promising...

In every part of the world where it has been done, antibody testing has shown vastly more cases than were known. Typically a 10 fold increase so no surprise with this. We now know that asymptomatic or mininally symptomatic cases are very very common and that cases in need of medical care represent just the tip of a very large iceberg. With deaths then the tip of the tip. (Which can still mean a very large number of deaths if the iceberg is big enougj).

 

We also now know that there is usually widespread community transmission happening well before infections start to get noticed. The flip side of that is that the same can be true after there stop being noticeable cases. Which is exactly why the continued precautions despite no known cases in Thailand in past month and a half.

Agreed, what I find a little more sinister however is that this has not been reported by the CCSA and really should have been, a clue why the UK kept Thailand on the quarantine list perhaps?
