Don't worry they are truly keeping a lid on it that's why we don't know what's going on in regards to the waves here in Thailand who rank 104th for transparency and corruption, which is about the only

Science was never his strong point, mild cases still pass on infections and let the virus grow.

The rolling seven-day averages of new daily COVID cases and deaths in Thailand both reached record highs in the latest update through May 16.   The daily average of COVID cases exceeded 2,58

Daily vaccines given update:

 

The chart below first shows daily doses given in the past day (76,687), with subtotals for first and second shot doses. Then the cumulative total of 2.34 million doses given since Feb. 28, with subtotals for first and second shot doses and the types of vaccines administered.

 

Thailand has now given first dose COVID vaccines to more than 2 percent of its 70 million population, and fully vaccinated second doses to more than 1 percent of its population.

From the ourworldinata graphs there is a 3-4 day delay from when testing starts to increase to when cases start to increase, so is this the lag time between testing and the reporting of data?So far we can see it may take several weeks to release collected data and the uncollected data will remain exactly that uncollected data.

The government was talking about 300k people a day. So strange that the media never holds them responsible for what they say. 75, vs 300k .. that is like only 25% of what they said they would do. The Thai goverment keeps spewing numbers and stories but nobody ever seems to pin them down on their  numbers. 

 

Its more PR then anything else.

 

I think it's a difference in part between the vaccination levels they're doing now vs. what they say they're going to be doing starting next month when  the local AstraZeneca doses are supposed to begin coming online. Right now, they continue to be limited mainly to the imported Sinovac doses from China.

Well something smells here. There are many clusters around BKK and only 680 positive prisoners. Yesterday in the top 10 new infections globally today no where near it. Interesting. Maybe I'm just being a bit of a cynic. Can't think why.

Is it because of a “weekend” effect? Perhaps labs were closed on Sunday, so fewer cases reported today? Pure speculation though, I don’t actually know the process.

More mixed messaging/signals re foreigner vaccines from the government, May, June, August???

 

 

 

I think the vaccine for foreigners is a “suck it and and see” thing. Words such as “likely”, “ register”,  “by xyz date”, really mean that there is no clearly defined time scale. And in any case, it will vary province by province, pink card or no pink card etc etc.

 

I have an appointment booked for my first jab of AZ from the government on 14th June, in an Isaan province. No chance of getting an appointment in Phuket for sinovac or AZ. So it’s all over the map really. But like a lot of things in Thailand, I think they will get there in terms of vaccinating foreigners, but it will be uneven and with more than a few road bumps along the way and timing will be variable. 

 

my biggest concern is whether they are being over optimistic about the ability of SB to deliver AZ, particularly in the early months, and also whether the same finite amount of supply has been promised to more than one province. But that won’t be apparent till the time comes, so wait and see I guess.

Lets keep watching this if the numbers of vaccinations per day don't rise we know they are full of B.S. I would say that there is enough Shinovac right now

No specific mention of foreigners whatsoever, as in included or excluded, in the latest vaccines rollout plan by the Bangkok local government:

 

https://prbangkok-eng.com/index.php/2021/05/17/unveil-the-bma-plan-for-target-groups-during-the-first-phase-of-vaccine-rollout/

 

"Regarding the BMA vaccine distribution plan among the target groups during the first phase, it is continued as planned. Still, the target groups are the medical and healthcare personnel, people with medical conditions in 7 chronic disease groups, the elderly aged 60 years and older, officers whose work is related to prevention and control of the spread of COVID-19, and people from occupational risk groups who have a chance to have close contact with patients."

 

AND

 

"As for the news regarding walk-in vaccination services for the general public which was not included in both initial and ad hoc plans at the first place; at this moment, the BMA does not provide any walk-in vaccination services. The people are requested to wait for the allocation of vaccine according to the schedule announced by the Government, which is from May 31, 2021 onwards. For the people who wish to have vaccine but are inconvenient or cannot register via “MorProm” LINE official account, they can register for vaccination at all 11 hospitals under the BMA Medical Service Department or request for more information at the BMA Medical Service Department’s 1646 hotline. The BMA is ready to facilitate everyone."

Amazing isn't it, only 2 days ago they said they were set to open all schools on the 17th May even in red zones which would have been a disaster of course. Now the suddenly see their error. Are they actually starting to take notice of their health experts or did basic commonsense suddenly touch them?
