CHONBURI (NNT) - The Deputy Minister of Public Health has attended a meeting with eight eastern provinces’ governors, consider easing some social measures to facilitate local residents and businesses.

Mr. Satit assured those at the meeting, that the COVID-19 situation in the eight provinces has been contained. Some provinces haven’t found new infections for days, while Trat and Sakeao have not had to deal with any new cases for 13 days already.

 

According to the statistics concerning COVID-19 infections in the eight provinces from December 19 last year to January 22, there have a been 1,967 cases comprising 1,830 local transmissions, and 137 arrivals from foreign countries.

 

The patients were mostly Thais found infected without symptoms and aged between 5 months old to 93 years old. There are now 332 patients in hospital.

And this means what exactly? Sounds like a doubling down on a failed policy to me!

A fairly uninformative spiel. Which restrictions are they looking at easing, does anyone know? The restriction of travel between provinces which necessitates having to line up with hundreds of others to get the necessary paperwork signed would be a great place to start with.
