Tests find French woman did not contract Covid-19 in Samut Prakan hotel

Dr Sopon Iamsirithaworn, director of the Disease Control Department’s Bureau of General Communicable Diseases, said on Thursday the French patient’s test did not match that of two other foreign guests at the same hotel who tested positive. He said tests showed the woman had contracted the infection 17 days earlier, which rules out the Samut Prakan hotel.


“Though we haven’t found the source of her infection, we still have to revise our guidelines for alternative state quarantine sites and cut down the risk of spreading the virus,” Dr Sopon said.


Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul, meanwhile, said guidelines for hotels used as quarantine sites will have to be reviewed after traces of Covid-19 virus were found on the gym equipment of the Samut Prakan hotel where the French woman had been staying.

Remarkable ! Thai testing can point to the date you got infected ? Could she not have contracted it AFTER leaving quarantine ? Or is it more towards keeping the "Covid free Thailand " image

What happened to  she was Thai with a  French passport   ???

17 days, 6hours and 19 seconds earlier.

Seems like an attempt to throw it back into the farang world to me - though, clearly now showing that their testing kits are clearly showing flaws - just how many infected have they let in with 66% test negatives when they are positive ? ? 

don't know, lets ask the experts..

If they haven't found the source for just this one person, what makes you think they really have this contained?


Could be a lot more people out there, such as Isaan, where my family says one one has ever been around to test anyone?
