Three Burmese family members residing in Mae Sot district, Tak province -- a one-year-old boy, a 10-year-old girl and a 23-year-old man -- considered as having close contact with the previously reported case of a Myanmar couple, were sent to Mae Sot Hospital on October 16.

 

A Mae Sot provincial official announced a provincial lockdown on Saturday in order to prevent the spread of Covid-19 with schools closing for seven days and religious ceremonies suspended.

 

Meanwhile, three patients have recovered and been discharged.

 

The total number of confirmed cases in Thailand increased to 3,686 (739 in state quarantine), 146 are in hospital and 3,481 have recovered and been discharged, while the death toll is 59.

And yet Thailand wants a Travel bubble with China with news stating cases are picking up there and worldwide.  Isn't this the time frame we suspected all of this Covid-19 started. Guess we may see Covid-20 in the future.

If Thailand really wants to open up to China then they have to embrace the return of Covid, you won't get one without the other.
