The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration on Tuesday reported three new cases in quarantine over a 24-hour period.

 

All the cases were asymptomatic males.

 

A 20-year-old Indian cargo ship crew from a Philippines port arrived on November 8 and tested positive in alternative quarantine on November 11. He was transferred to Laem Chabang Hospital for treatment.

 

Two British men -- a 51-year-old and a 70-year-old -- travelled from the UK, and arrived on November 9 after taking a connecting flight in Dubai. They test positive in an alternative state quarantine hotel in Bangkok on November 14 and 15 respectively.

 

Meanwhile, three patients have recovered and been discharged.

 

The total number of confirmed cases in Thailand increased to 3,878 (919 in state quarantine), 94 are in hospital, 3,724 have recovered and been discharged and 60 have died.

 

According to Worldometer, as of 10am on Tuesday, the total number of confirmed cases has increased to 55.3 million (up by 483,386), 38.45 million have recovered, 15.52 million are active cases (99,780 in severe condition) and 1.33 million have died (up by 7,150).

 

Thailand ranks 151st for most cases in the world, while the US has the most number with 11.53 million, followed by India 8.87 million, Brazil 5.87 million, France 1.99 million and Russia 1.95 million.

 I find it perplexing that these Brits test positive after the stringent checks to travel to Thailand. I can't believe anyone would travel if they slightly suspected ill health. Do the tests identify other things or is there a political dimension ?

They were asymptomatic so could be expected to form part of the group that will slip through the checks prior to travel.  That's why there is quarantine.

Its perplexing this far in the epidemic that you don't understand that people who have it show no symptoms and when they first get it they will test negative.  That is why there is a mandatory 14 day quarantine, basically earth wide for any travel.

I keep saying about the people that test positive in quarantine.   It maybe that the 2 British persons who tested positive in quarantine became infected in transit .   The are required to get a Covid negative test before travel so they did not have it then !    The problem is that Thai Nationals are not required to have a test before flying like the rest of us . If a Thai National is infected and allowed to board a plane then that person can unknowingly infect others and they would not know until after the virus incubation period either when the symptoms become evident or on testing at arrival or in quarantine .   It's a crazy situation that is being allowed to exist but no one is listening .   ALL passengers must be tested before boarding .

I am sure that there is a political dimension, because the people from the land of the Wuhan virus, never seem to have the virus! It's only the dirty farangs, both with and without facemasks.

That's because it is not in China, only places where people do not wear their masks.
