There were five new cases of Covid-19 in state quarantine over a 24-hour period, the government’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA), reported on Thursday (July 9).

 

There have been no domestic cases for 45 days, since the last one reported on May 25.

 

Of the new cases, four had returned from the United Arab Emirates -- three men and a woman aged 38-54 -- Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin, spokesman of the CCSA, said.

 

This group returned on July 2 and tested positive on July 7 despite showing no symptoms.

 

One male student returned from Egypt on July 8 and tested positive on the same day after he lost his sense of smell.

 

Meanwhile, 11 patients were reported to have fully recovered and returned home.

 

As of July 9, the total number of confirmed cases in the country stood at 3,202 (2,444 domestic cases and 265 in state quarantine) -- 59 are under treatment, 3,085 have recovered and been discharged, and there have been 58 deaths.

 

Globally, the total number of confirmed cases passed 12 million, up by 210,000, with 7 million recovered while deaths stood at 552,000. Thailand ranked 99th for most cases in the world while the US still has the highest number, followed by Brazil and India.

 

“These numbers show that outside our country, the situation is still critical. It means that we are still in a dangerous condition. So don’t drop your guard,” said Dr Taweesin.

 

He also revealed that of the new patients found positive from June 1 to July 8, 33.33 per cent did not have symptoms before boarding, 36.67 per cent showed symptoms before travel, 25 per cent showed symptoms on the travel day, and 5 per cent could not identify the first date of infection.

If this was true they would relax the tourist rules to let more people in the country and rescue the country from the financial black hole it's in the moment.

If you don't test people for covid-19 you wont find people who have covid-19. It's called Thail logic

The second wave is perhaps 2 months away max 3 months. Then a very possible 3 wave next year. With 6 week lockdowns as has started now in Melbourne. I hope not but the chances are this may happen.

No big testing—no big Wuhan numbers.  Amazing how many countries have learned this trick...

they should do that covid test thing before people get on a flight so when they arrive you know they don't have it

And 20% out of 100k showed antibodies. At least they did the antibody testing.

That article is refreshing though they actually soften it and quote the month of March excess death amount as the amount from the beginning to the end of March. If you start back in the middle of 2019, excess deaths are much, much more than 40 times what has been reported.

 

[cue the mounds of dead bodies and social media posts people]

Is there any domestic testing going on at all?

 

Does anyone have any numbers / date outlining the number of Covid-19 PCR tests being carried out daily in Thailand? (other than at the Quarantine Facilities).
