Thai media has published a timeline for the movements of a Myanmar couple whose two year old daughter has tested positive for coronavirus after returning to their home country.

 

Dr Suwannachai Wattanayingcharoenchai, director general of the Disease Control Department, said that the Thai people could have confidence in their country to control the spread of infection even though neighboring countries are experiencing surges in the virus. 

 

Health authorities in Nakhon Ratchasima and Saraburi/Ayuthaya have been investigating the movements of the mother and father and their child.

 

All those who came into contact with them at their places of work and residences are being traced. 

 

The parents worked at a breeze block company in Pak Chong from October 2019. They visited pak Chong Nana hospital to register for an insurance scheme. They registered for the work in Nakhon Ratchasima. 

 

They left the brick company's employment on June 25th and on August 26th went in a van to work at a market in Uthai district of Ayutthaya.  Immigration data showed they applied to work there.

this highlights the ridiculousness of having a zero-tolerance policy for an infectious disease when there is no truly effective in place. This is an unrealistic standard for an infectious disease.

 

With this as the standard, a case here or there results in people getting panicked and overreacting.

 

developing an awareness and precautions for  those at risk for bad outcomes if infected (the new normal) and having a return of regular life to those who are not (back to the normal normal) is what is needed at this point.

That's odd. Stuff I order from China I have to pay P&P.

Strange that the only local infections are people who had to undergo compulsory testing

 

- the footballer 

- the prisoner 

- the girl who returned to her home country 

 

Under 1.1% of Thais have been tested compared to over 30% of UK's population.

 

Is this the real reason for the very low number of infections?

one word says it all

Joke of the day :cheesy:

 

No, I neither have that confidence, nor I trust you, your bosses and your numbers. Not one iota.

It's amazing that the they haven't found any infections from the DJ, footballer or prisoner.

Were they isolated cases picking up the virus from nowhere and not even spreading it?

Yes. But not really a reason to worry. After the rise in November-February of excess deaths, there hasn't been any sudden filling up of covid wards. Most seem to be able to fight it off by themselves. It seems once the population reaches 10-15% that had it, Rt decreases by a fair bit.
