The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) reported five new confirmed cases in state quarantine over a 24-hour period on Tuesday (September 22).

 

All five cases were asymptomatic.

 

The patients included a family of three – 7-month-old child, 30-year-old mother and 36-year-old father – who tested positive on Saturday. They had arrived from India on September 16 and gone into alternative state quarantine in Bangkok.

 

The fourth was a 62-year-old Indian businessman who arrived in Bangkok on September 16 and went into alternative state quarantine.

 

The fifth case was a 44-year-old returnee from Switzerland, who landed in Thailand on September 16 and is being quarantined in Chonburi.

 

Meanwhile, one person has fully recovered and discharged from hospital.

 

The total number of confirmed cases in Thailand has risen to 3,511 (573 in state quarantine), 109 of whom are in hospital and 3,343 have recovered. The death toll remains unchanged at 59.

 

According to CCSA, Thailand has conducted RT-PCR tests on 948,161 people, which works out to be 14,237 samples per one million people, of whom 0.37 per cent tested positive. Half of the tests were conducted by private hospitals and the other half by state hospitals and public health agencies.

 

According to Worldometer, as of 10am on Tuesday, the total number of confirmed cases worldwide had risen by 230,853 to 31.48 million. Of them, 23.1 million have fully recovered, 61,808 are in severe condition, 7.4 million are in hospital and 969,290 have died.

 

Thailand ranks 134th in terms of the number of cases in the world, while US leads the list with 7 million, followed by India 5.56 million, Brazil 4.56 million, Russia 1.1 million and Peru 772,896.

If they have no medical problems, can they continue to stay in quarantine for the two weeks?

Agree, asymptomatic people can spread the disease. Hence quarantine. But quarantine at the hospital with extremely high costs as compared to quarantine in the hotel room seems efficient.
But since Thailand required them to have high medical insurance, they probably figured send them straight to the hospital and collect the fees. This is one way to get money from lack of tourism

So all this covid madness is for 0.37 percent positive? That's cases, not hospitalizations. In the world of numbers, this is not only statistically insignificant, it's insignificantly insignificant. 

 

What on earth are were doing????? This is utter lunacy!

Asymtomatic people can spread virus to people who become "symtomatic": maybe sick, maybe die.

Jeez, at this stage of the game you should at least know that.

 

Do you have any idea how rare asymptomatic spread risk is ? obviously not... at this stage of the game you should know how low risk it really is. 

 

Fact, we are all going to die and over third of us wont get any notice at all... it'll just happen. We are here possibly just once, get on with life and stop living in fear, unless your fat, infirm or paranoid.

"A recent summary of the latest data by the CDC shows that about two-thirds of the COVID-19 transmissions in the U.S. come from people not showing symptoms – either because their cases are asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic. According to the CDC, this “underscores the importance of social distancing, including the avoidance of congregate settings, to reduce COVID-19 spread.”" Maybe this article will help you as you seem to have "no idea" https://health.ucdavis.edu/coronavirus/resources/covid-19-faqs-for-health-professionals.html

"Fact, we are all going to die and over third of us wont get any notice at all... it'll just happen." Well, duh. And most people only suffer one fatal incident in their lives. BTW death doesn't "just happen". One reason for autopsies.

There is a big difference between being prudent and living in fear. Hmm if I am fat, infirm or paranoid then it is okay to live in fear?

I am "getting on with my life", and part of that is avoiding doing overly risky things as best I can. One reason I don't have a motorbike here, for example

They found these cases because they were tested. If the general population was tested, as what is happening in many other countries, I would bet there would be tens if not hundreds of thousands of "positives".


Most Thais will get it, assume it's the flu, suck it up, get over it, and carry on with their lives. They aren't going to spend thousands of baht for any test.

Imagine a virus so deadly, you need a test to see if you have it.

Imagine a vaccine so safe and effective you have to threaten and force people to take it.

 

Closing in on 1 million dead around the world from CV, and that's just the official count. The real count is believed to be considerably higher.

 

Johns Hopkins re the world:

US CDC re the U.S.

Still running 800+ deaths per day in the U.S. from CV... Just think if this were a war, and the U.S. was experiencing 800 war dead on a daily basis. The public outcry would be huge....  But instead, these deaths are occurring quietly and alone, in hospitals, in isolation, not even family members allowed inside oftentimes.

lets just assume for a moment that the listing is accurate, which most nations admit it isnt as anything is being listed as a cov death and actually its believed to be much much LOWER as other causes of death are all being listed as covid the past 6 mths but lets assume it were true...globally the amount is still absolutely minuscule.. 

 

Roughly if we agree there are around 7 billion on the planet then 1 million would represent approx 0.0142857% ... it would have to kill 70 million to get near even 1%... which of course no one is suggesting it will. Think about that for a moment.... 31 million is barely .4% of the global population, so its not highly contagious either, just mildly and Its hardly  concern when looked at properly, either its deadly or its not, cases dont matter... clearly its not for 99% of even those who contract it...soooo.... naaa its not something im bothered about. The over reaction sure is though.

The official virus cases are only found where it's tested for and officially reported. In a lot of places, it isn't particularly tested for, including Thailand, and thus isn't reported. So your games playing with statistical percentages is just that, games playing.

 

For the U.S. right now, with 200,000+ dead from CV in about 8 months, it's already going to be the third leading cause of death in the country for the year, behind only heart disease and cancer. Those numbers are real, not fake, and anything but insignificant.

But how many of those had other life threatening disease before catching the virus ?
