Two beauty queens, from Nigeria and Kenya, who are in Thailand for the Miss Grand International (MGI) beauty pageant, have tested positive for COVID-19 and are now being treated at Piyavate Hospital in Bangkok.

 

The Facebook page of the pageant organizing committee reported today that all the contestants were required to undergo swab tests and be quarantined in hotels for 14 days and the contestants from Nigeria and Kenya were the only ones infected.

 

The committee also said that the hotel used as the quarantine facility for the beauty queens has been disinfected.

This is why Quarantine will not end anytime soon.  Everyday a few in Quarantine test positive.  In the near future the only way to determine if Quarantine can end is to put a vaccinated group in an controlled hotel and conduct a RT-PCR test after 5 or 6 days and see if anyone tests positive.  If the vaccinated control group does not have any positives then the government can consider either eliminate or reduce quarantine time.

Treated how exactly, are they all standing around looking at them 

 

Pretty sure they will not be sick in any way, how do you you treat a patient that is not sick

I think the current protocol requires transfer from the hotel to the partner hospital's COVID facility. A single bed hospital room. I think the insurance gets charged for this.

 

At least that's what happened to a colleague. He was asymptomatic.

 

Maybe there is a different protocol for these international events (like the badminton tourney).

 

 

Putting on the Olympics will be a much, much larger and more challenging endeavor.
