PHUKET: Phuket Governor Narong Woonciew yesterday inspected the ‘Field Hospital 2’ at the Prince of Songkla University (PSU) Phuket Campus as officials ready for a rise in COVID infections across the island.

 

The inspection came as the number of confirmed infected on the island rose to 58 yesterday. As of this morning (Apr 12), that number had risen to 74, reported the Phuket Provincial Public Health Office (PPHO).

 

The aim is to have 500 beds available across Phuket for people infected with COVID-19 needing medical care, Governor Narong said during his inspection of the field hospital yesterday.

Did they drop a zero?

At the end of the day, the only number that really matters is the death rate.

Currently it stands at less than one death per 300 cases. If you take into account old age, pre existing conditions etc, it's probably in the region of 1 death per 500 cases.

Cases increasing without a proportional rise in deaths is actually a good thing in order to build herd immunity.
