PHUKET: The number of COVID infections in Phuket has hit 50, with officials identifying a strain “from Europe” that spread much faster than the previous strain on the island dominant among the new infections.

 

The rise came with seven new infections identified throughout Saturday (Apr 10), following 17 more infections confirmed Friday night, reported the Phuket Provincial Public Health Office (PPHO).

 

Speaking at the Indoor Sports Stadium in Saphan Hin on Saturday, the last day of covid vaccination injections before the centre shuts down until the end of the month, Vachira Phuket Hospital Director Chalermpong Sakontapol said, “The infections are mostly the new strain ER 17 [sic] from Europe. It spreads quickly, but the symptoms are not as severe [as previous strains].

Hey, if it came from the UK, it could be any one of the 4 variants, as well as the original, but heck if it

came from Cambodia, it could also be any one of the 4 variants as well. Get ready for a big 3rd wave Thailand.

  Canada is not doing to well with the 3rd wave, but the vaccinations are flowing.  Stay safe and healthy all.

Geezer
