There were four new Covid-19 cases in state quarantine over a 24-hour period, the government’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA), reported on Thursday (July 16), the 52nd day without a domestic case.

 

CCSA spokesman Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin apologised to Thais again for not fully reporting on the first announcement of a case involving a foreigner on Monday and also read the apology letter from the Egyptian embassy.

 

Of the new cases, a 33-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman had returned from the UAE, a 27-year-old student who had a history of being in close contact with patients had returned from Egypt, and a 51-year-old woman with fever symptoms had returned from the US.

 

Meanwhile, three patients recovered fully and returned home.

 

As of July 16, the total number of confirmed cases in the country stood at 3,236 (299 found in state quarantine) -- 83 are under treatment, 3,095 have recovered and been discharged, and there have been 58 deaths.

 

Globally, the total number of confirmed cases passed 13.6 million, up by 234,000 on Wednesday; 8 million have recovered while deaths stood at 586,000. Thailand is 100th among countries with most number of cases in the world; the US has the highest number, followed by Brazil and India.

 

Updating on the case of the Sudanese ambassador’s daughter, Dr Taweesin said that 16 people had used the same elevator but they had all tested negative.

 

Meanwhile, in the case of the Egyptian soldier’s case, a taxi driver has reported himself to the health officer since he didn’t actually drive the soldier to the mall but talked to them for five minutes.

 

He said the total number of people in Rayong who had been tested could be divided into: 12 high-risk close contacts, all of whom have tested negative: people registered with ThaiChana or signed guest books (medium risk); 886 people went to Laem Thong department store and 447 people had visited Rayong Central mall -- all are negative. All the 267 people who lived in the area of the One-X condominium, where the Sudanese family stayed, had been tested and found to be negative.

 

Meanwhile, 1,252 people who were concerned and went to test on July 15 at mobile labs are awaiting results.

 

At the end of the brief conference, he warned Thais about influenza and dengue fever and urged them to take care of themselves by following a healthy lifestyle.

 

He also said that Rayong people can now go to both Rayong Central mall and Laem Thong department store since they have been disinfected and were closed for comprehensive cleaning after the news.

It could get a lot worse yet if they let more people into the country. 

Just red the news :     Imaging that  some of them Are positive an decide to Fly / Sneak  into Los  

 

The owner of a Bangladeshi hospital, accused of issuing thousands of fake negative Covid-19 test results at his 2 clinics, was arrested yesterday whilst trying to flee to neighbouring India dressed as a woman.

(Now that you’ve absorbed the first sentence…)

Police say the arrest marks the end of a 9 day manhunt for 42 year old Mohammad Shahed over allegations he gave fake certificates to patients certifying them “virus-free” without testing them. He’s one of more than a dozen people detained in the past few days in connection with the scam.

“He was arrested at the banks of a border river as he was trying to flee to India. He was wearing a burqa.”

Hundreds of them arrived in Italy with those fake tests and dozens are positive.

16 people used the same elevator. This really shows the level of intelligence or utter .. these guys sprout.

How did she get to the elevator? Where was she before that? Where was she after that? Her family tested positive and she's wondering around BKK. But don't fear. It's all ok. Those in the elevator tested negative? Well the first time anyhow. Where are those people now? And why one has to ask was she allowed to wonder the streets of BKK.

I don't fear at all, the virus is the last of my concern in my daily life in Thailand.

No, because there's no virus atm in Thailand.

If it was rampant I would be more careful but I'd still try to go on with my life.

Fairly sure plenty will disagree about the state of the virus. Schools opened up a couple of wks ago so let's see. Of course if testing was being done then we could have more certainty.

Let's just ignore reality and be panicked into fear, despite the odds on dying being 👍

Interesting fact:- The number of Coronavirus deaths WORLDWIDE are LESS than the number of Children that go missing in the United States of America alone every year!

So the simple answer is, treat the CV seriously instead of trying to downplay or ignore it. Mask up, social distance and wash your hands. And then there won't be the need for lockdowns.

 

Typically around the world, the lockdowns are only occurring where the virus is spreading pretty much out of control and/or threatening the capacity of health care systems.
