Three more case today reported. Two below show how important it is to not let the guard down.

U tapao airport perhaps lax in screening, but also lax attention to isolation.

43-year-old male Egyptian soldier travelled with a military crew to Thailand on July 8 found to be positive. the group visited a Rayong shopping and community area.

also
The family of a nine-year-old girl found infected in Bangkok with Covid-19 are being investigated after they were not in state quarantine and required only to self-isolate
.
story does not appear to be in the Nation news yet.

Surely more to that story... Everyone (Thai’s included) currently have to Quarantine at a State or Alternative quarantine facility. There are very few exceptions, i.e. those with ‘special permission’ which could mean diplomats etc it also seems the military are allowing favourable treatment to its international peers. 

 

I wonder if this 9 year old girl is a member of family of a Thai or International Diplomat or Military Officer.

You know how it works, some people are immune from certain things.

As it's writed in the article, the 9 yo girl is the child of an african diplomat.

 

Anyway as we can see here the few ''exceptions'' doesn't make any sense

diplomats and their families, military crew or businessman on short stay are

not exempt to catch the virus in their country of origin or either in the plane

and introduce it in Thailand.

 

If the Thais want a ''safe'' state they need to quarantine everyone entering the country

without any exception at all, the other option is to open to everybody with very few

requirments but not quarantine, and see how it goes.

 

The first option sound better on a pure medical vision, but it's the worst for the economy.

Misleading headline. All what was there were positive tests for SARS-CoV-2, not cases of Covid-19. Scaremongering?

Are you saying the whole newspaper article is wrong?

I reread it twice and they write the egyptian soldier and 

the diplomat's child were tested positive to the covid 19

 

''He (The egyptian soldier) and the crew reportedly visited a Rayong shopping and community area. They left their hotel on July 9 and travelled to China on an unspecified military mission via U-Tapao Airport. They returned to Thailand the same day. On July 10, the crew of 31 got tested. However, they were allowed to go home on July 11 though their Covid-19 test results weren’t confirmed. The soldier was found to test positive on July 12. Health authorities were questioning the staff of the unnamed hotel in which the group stayed.''

 

''On July 10, the family (Of The african diplomat) were screened for infection as they arrived in Thailand, and the girl was found to have contracted Covid-19. Her father then took her to a private hospital in Bangkok while the rest of the family remained in quarantine at a condominium in Bangkok.

On July 11 a second test confirmed the girl was infected with Covid-19, after which she was sent for treatment at a state hospital in Bangkok.''

Yes. And commenting on the misleading headline „More imported cases of Covid 19“, while all what really happened were positive PCR tests.

Russia supposedly has completed clinical trials for a vaccine. Could very well be fake news. And even if it's true, I can't see Europian countries, and definitely not the US buy the vaccine. - But who knows, maybe Asian countries will buy it, if.... it's true.

The PCR tests are testing for presence of fragments of the SARS-CoV-2 Virus.

Covid-19 is the name of the sickness alleged to be caused by SARS-CoV-2.

Almost all of the infected (the ones with a positive PCR test) are not sick, asymptotic, show no symptoms.

 

The article claims they have Covid-19. Sloppy journalism, confusing the name of the virus with the name of the sickness.

And only people that are suspectible to covid-19 need the vaccine and the rest of us can carry enjoying ourselves.
