A 42-year-old woman has been confirmed as the first Covid-19 patient in Sukhothai province.

The woman is a masseuse by profession at Mahachai subdistrict in the Muang district of Samut Sakhon.

 

Her timeline:

 

December 25:

At 6am, she leaves Mahachai for Sukhothai with her 30-year-old boyfriend and a 52-year-old female friend in a private car.

At 9am, they stop at a petrol station in Ayutthaya province.

At 11am, they stop at a restaurant in Nakhon Sawan province.

At 3pm, she arrives in her hometown in Ban Kluai subdistrict, in the Muang district of Sukhothai and reports to health volunteers to be checked for Covid-19 at Sukhothai Hospital and to quarantine at home for a period of 14 days

And with families gathering for new year, how many other carriers will there be spreading out over the country?

 

We're roughly the same distance from Bangkok as Sukhothai and I know that visitors have arrived in the village from down there so I, for one will be practicing social distancing for the next few weeks.

 

I think this is going to be a very challenging month for the authorities.

I cancelled my New Year trip up north, lost the money on the flights, got a refund on the hire car and hadn’t booked the hotel yet. Hoping they will lockdown then I will get the flights refunded.
 

I have watched Europe and the USA all year and thought they were plain stupid for plane travel so it would also be stupid for me to do it now even though I was reluctant to cancel. I was also concerned about getting stuck up north if they locked down when I was there.
 

IMO they should lockdown over NEw Year. Most people have a week off anyway, just make them stay where they are, like they did at Songkran. That worked. There is more covid now in Thailand and the world than back then. If I was in charge I would call a two week lockdown tomorrow and then reassess. Hopefully nip it in the bud.

The problem with New Year is families and friends get crammed in together in the same car to travel. Only one has to have it, then it will spread to everyone in the car during the long drive.Then they all get out at the destination  and visit their various friends and families and it will spread further. Then they head back to work and further spread it. And all the oldies in the village will have it also. 

 

To beat covid you have to social distance, not socialise.

 

i hope I am wrong but it could really be a disaster. Stupid to risk it for a holiday. Once numbers get past a certain level it will be impossible to eliminate like they did last time, and it will just be lockdown after lockdown just trying to contain it like in Europe and failing miserably.
Better to go hard, go fast IMO. 
 

It wasn’t Prayuts idea to lockdown the first time, he was pressured into it. I hope they pressure him again but time is running out.
