(Reuters) - Thailand on Friday reported 27 new coronavirus deaths, matching its second-highest daily rise in fatalities, as the country grapples with a third wave of infections.

 

The Southeast Asian country also reported 2,044 new coronavirus cases, bringing the total number of confirmed infections to 78,855 since the pandemic began last year.

 

The total number of deaths now stands at 363.

With a population of around 10 million for greater Bangkok, out of which probably 30 to 50% is already infected (and mostly asymptomatic), it will take years to test everyone at a rate of 10,000 per d

Pretty obvious they are struggling to contain this, with numbers this high its playing catch up all the time, contain one cluster only to fight another and another and this logically leads to further

Get >2000 with low mass testing (argue against this if you will) and the infections rate MUST be higher. BKK alone should be doing 10,000+ tests a day. Test more, find more. This is one way to stop

Charting of Thailand rolling seven-day average of new COVID cases -- a key indicator used by health authorities to track COVID case trends -- shows the new daily case numbers continuing to moderate and remain below prior highs at almost 1,886.

 

The data by the same website, Our World in Data, updated through May 5, also shows the seven-day trend of COVID deaths in Thailand having made a steep rise since the middle of April, but just lately beginning to level off at 20.

Lack of growth in infections means that the positivity rate is not increasing, assuming the overall number of tests per day is more or less constant.  That is good news.

 

The question is how to stop this wave if the positivity rate is not declining.

According to my friend this morning who lives in BKK they are testing everybody in her area at the moment which is just off Wireless Road, lets see what happens later

Well we will soon have the brain dead on here claiming it has flat lined (again) and it has peaked (again). Also the government apologists will pop out of the woodwork claiming they are doing a good job.  Well we all know exactly what it is they are doing a good job of and for whom and it is certainly nothing do to do with proactive random testing as it is not happening nationally. And only selectively where cases have already occurred as a reactive case in those hot spots which perhaps could have been mitigated by appropriate government actions previously.

Wack-a-mole plays well with the Thai public I imagine.....looks like the government and at least trying.

 

Sad that it simply won't work.......it is like lockdowns......essential only due to the absence of a vaccine.

Your herd immunity belief is being disproven in India.
