Chonburi authorities have banned travel to or from Koh Si Chang after a Covid-19 outbreak in adjoining coastal districts.

 

The lockdown is effective immediately until the situation is resolved, said Chonburi governor Phakthorn Thianchai, in his capacity as chairman of the provincial Communicable Diseases Committee.

 

The move comes after the Covid-19 outbreak in neighbouring coastal districts including Sri Racha has continued to spread.

 

To stop transmission of the virus, Koh Si Chang has been completely locked down.

 

The Chonburi marine department will impose measures for boat operators while the sheriff of Koh Si Chang has been tasked with policing the lockdown.

It should have been "effective immediately" weeks ago.

The medications have been up ticked to now stronger antibiotics, Z-packs, and meds to help with their breathing. 

Are they working... ? If bacterial pneumonia or a secondary infection they would. But against a virus like Covid not.

Irresponsible and inaccurate reporting as Rayong had 3 cases yesterday which accounted for all 3 in the 4 eastern provinces of Chonburi, Rayong, Chantaburi and Trat.
