The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) reported seven new cases over a 24-hour period on Friday (September 18), including a Thai man who was infected for a second time.

 

The new cases included two foreigners.

 

A 42-year-old Bangladeshi man travelled from his country on September 2 and tested positive on the second test at an alternative state quarantine hotel in Bangkok on September 15.

 

A 10-year-old Pakistani boy, who had travelled from his country on September 13, was found positive on September 16.

 

Three Thai returnees from Saudi Arabia --- two female students aged 9 and 14, and a 61-year-old man --- tested positive in state quarantine in Bangkok. They had a runny nose and had lost their sense of smell.

 

A 41-year-old Thai man returned from Qatar on September 13 (one passenger was earlier found to be infected on the same flight) and was found positive on September 16 in state quarantine in Chonburi province.

 

Meanwhile, a 50-year-old Thai man who had travelled from Saudi Arabia on September 5 and was in state quarantine in Bangkok, was found positive after the second test on September 16. He had been previously infected with Covid-19 in July.

 

Meanwhile, three patients recovered and were discharged from hospital.

 

The total number of confirmed cases in Thailand increased to 3,497 (559 in state quarantine), of whom 111 are in hospital and 3,328 have recovered and been discharged, while the death toll remains 58.

 

According to Worldometer, as of 10 am on Friday, the total number of confirmed global cases increased to 30.34 million (increasing by 316,058 over a 24-hour period), 22 million have recovered, 61,143 are in serious condition and 950,545 have died.

 

Thailand is 130th for most cases in the world, while the US has the most number with 6.87 million, followed by India 5.21 million, Brazil 4.45 million, Russia 1.08 million and Peru 750,098

About time this scamdemic is stopped.

Do your research and you will find it is scaremongering.

 

Watch this one first and make your own opinion not what the government and news channels give you.

Usually a headline would state the highest percentage of whatever is being reported....yet again Foreigners singled out even though more Thais were found infected......stop stoking the Xenophobia...even the Red Cross today reported Xenophobia is becoming prevelent in Asia....This headline hardly helps matters.

"Paul Martin Laurence Weston is a British far-right politician"

So, what are his medical expertise?

So the 200,000 Americans who have died so far (and the 400,000 who will have died by early 2021) are just Darwinian chaff? If they had not turned blue from Covid, then, because of their pre-existing conditions, they would have (or should have?) jumped from the cliff without the virus nudge? 

200,000 have died despite partial, imperfect social distancing. The herd "mentality" approach which Agent Orange promotes (after apparently abandoning his "bleach injection therapy" suggestion) would lead to >2 million if all social distancing and mask recommendation would be abandoned.

The excess mortality in 20Q2 rose and fell with the degree of social distancing measures. Was there a secret other pandemic instead of the "harmless" Covid-19?

Number of US excess deaths. The excess mortality in 20Q2 was despite the imperfect social distancing measures. The spike in April results from infections that had happened by mid-March before most distancing measures. Without them, the weekly deaths would have stayed close to 80,000 instead of the pre-Covid rate of less than 60,000.

 

Of course, you can claim that the CDC belongs to the "Deep State"; and is in the same global conspiray with all other governments and health agencies.

And is that a satisfying conclusion? "There, we showed it to the scare-mongers and scientific egg heads!"

 

What do we do: stop doing all research for any vaccine immediately, even for something like seasonal flu vaccines?

Or better find out if that man has been infected with 2 different strains of Covid-19?

Or, as in other cases in recent months, investigate whether his cells still contained inactive, "dead" virus fragments which the test flagged? Then better tests would be useful.

It´s still mind-boggling to me that a global pandemic has become a symbol of tribal identity, apparently globally. If you have (far-)right political leanings, you have to condemn masks, social distancing, vaccines as conspiracies of the deep state, the world government and jack-booted goons in black helicopters, to demonstrate your far-right bona fides to your tribal members?

Immigrants bring dirt, sickness and crime? Whereas an airborn virus that has already killed hundreds of thousands is a scamdemic?

Ok so not much risk of dying if healthy and under 60.  But lots of indications of lasting health effects such as heart damage.  Head of US CDC stated that mask usage may be more helpful than the vaccines will be.  He also stated that if Americans wore masks for 6-12 weeks the virus would be under control in the US.  But you can't believe how ignorant people are around these parts.   Wearing aask for these old timer mormons is admitting science  and the far left are right.  And yiu know science and evolutionary ideas,  big bang theory isn't kind to most religions
