BANGKOK, Jan 21 (TNA) – The Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration reported 142 new COVID-19 cases over the past 24 hours and admitted that Bangkok was spreading the disease.

 

CCSA spokesman Taweesilp Visanuyothin said the 142 new cases comprised 125 local infection cases and 17 arrivals in quarantine. The total cases rose to 12,795.

 

“In Samut Sakhon province, 63 cases were found. Samut Sakhon is a key target of active case finding. People at over 10,000 factories there must be tested within this month. Tests will be conducted at 50-60 factories a day,” Dr Taweesilp said.

How do you know they are testing and how many? These number are never published...

The use of words from the spokesman is very clever, he didn't exactly say how many people per day or in sum they are testing.

I copy the paragraph:

"In Samut Sakhon province, 63 cases were found. Samut Sakhon is a key target of active case finding. People at over 10,000 factories there must be tested within this month. Tests will be conducted at 50-60 factories a day,” Dr Taweesilp said.

A lot of this info is in Thai only, and available in various Thai media outlets.  Sadly, not all of it is translated into English.  So hard to figure out what's going on for those of us who don't know the local language.  Like me!!

The numbers are published. You can access the data on the World-o-Meter site and on the Johns Hopkins site.

Let me calculate 

 

60 factories x 30 days = 1,800 factories tested a month. 

 

10,000 - 1,800 = forget it... The statement doesn't make sense. 

Agree with you 100%.

Numbers that are obtained from the Thai government.  Who admit they don't test enough and don't know the true stats for cases and deaths.  Just like most other countries.

I see the info for USA testing on the Johns Hopkins site, but nothing for other countries. I don't believe this info exists anywhere on the site.

 

Can you explain how / where to see the Thailand testing results?

Try the worldometers site; there should be a column for 'Total Tests' and 'Tests per Million'.

I highly recommend outworldindata.org site for number of tests done in relation to positive cases found.
