    Eight Covid-19 deaths and a record 2,839 new cases, 1,582 of them in Bangkok, were reported on Saturday, bringing the totals to 129 deaths and 53,022 cases.

    The current outbreak since April 1 has now infected 26,998 people and killed 43.

    Taweesilp Visanuyothin, spokesman for the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, said the eight deaths were six men and two women.

    The 122nd death was an obese Thai man, 48, in Samut Prakan. He had visited an entertainment venue in the Srinakarin area. On April 12, he had a fever, sore throat and diarrhoea. On April 18, he tested positive and had pneumonia. He died on Thursday.

    The 123rd death was a Thai woman, 83, in Bangkok. She had diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol and was in contact with a confirmed case. On April 14, she had a fever and fatigue. Four days later she tested positive. She died on Thursday.

    The 124th death was a Thai man, 89, in Bangkok. He was a bed-ridden patient with colon cancer in contact with a confirmed case. On Thursday, he had a cough, a fever and breathing difficulties. He tested positive the next day and died on the same day.

    The 125th death was a Thai man, 63, in Bangkok. He had high blood pressure and gout and was in contact with a confirmed case. On April 11, he had a fever. On Thursday, he tested positive. He died the next day.

    The 126th death was a Thai man, 68, in Chachoengsao. He had high blood pressure, high cholesterol and cardiac arrhythmia. He was in contact with a confirmed case. On April 10, he had a fever and tested positive the next day. He died on Thursday.

    The 127th death was a Thai woman, 82, in Samut Prakan. She had cervical cancer and was in contact with a confirmed case. On April 14, she tested positive. She died on Tuesday.

    The 128th death was a Thai man, 75, in Nakhon Sawan. He had high blood pressure, high cholesterol and benign prostatic hyperplasia. He was in contact with a confirmed case. On April 9, he had a cough and a fever. He tested positive on April 11 and died on Thursday.

    The 129th death was a Thai man, 62, in Nonthaburi who had a chronic kidney disease. He had visited an entertainment venue. On April 18, he had fatigue. On Wednesday, he tested positive. He died on Friday.

    Of the 2,839 new cases over the past 24 hours, 2,827 were local infections and 12 were imported cases.

    Of the local cases, 2,523 were confirmed in hospitals and 304 were found through active case finding.

    The 12 imported cases were quarantined arrivals from India (7), the United Arab Emirates (2), Bahrain (1), Oman (1) and the United States (1). They were five Thai women and seven Indian men.

    Total cases are now 53,022, of which 30,566 (57.6%) had recovered, including 377 discharged on Friday, and 22,327 were in hospital. Of the infected patients, 418 were critical, with 113 on ventilators.

    Bangkok logged the highest number of new infections at 1,582 cases. Nine other provinces with high infections were Chiang Mai (151), Chon Buri (119), Nonthaburi (96), Samut Prakan (84), Pathum Thani (59), Samut Sakhon (57), Surat Thani (46), Nakhon Sawan (38) and Songkhla (34).: https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand...-839-new-cases

      • CDC study on COVID-19 long-haulers: Two-thirds of non-hospitalized patients received new diagnoses

      A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) study released Friday found that two-thirds of non-hospitalized COVID-19 patients received some kind of new diagnosis up to six months after contracting the virus, supporting concerns about later health problems.

      The research, done in partnership with Kaiser Permanente Georgia, found that 69 percent of patients had one or more outpatient medical visits between 28 and 180 days after their initial COVID-19 diagnosis.

      The study examined electronic record data of health care visits from 3,171 patients if they were not hospitalized in the first 28 days after their coronavirus diagnosis. A total of 2,177 patients had at least one medical visit between 28 and 180 days after the COVID-19 diagnosis, amounting to almost 8,000 visits total.

      Among patients with medical visits, 68 percent received a new diagnosis and 38 percent visited a new specialist who did not treat the patient in the year before the COVID-19 diagnosis.

      Patients who were older than 65, women, non-Hispanic Black patients and those with underlying health conditions were more likely to have an outpatient medical visit. The scientists suggested this could be partly because some groups are disproportionately affected by the coronavirus and are at higher risk for post-COVID-19 conditions.

      The new diagnoses included cough, shortness of breath, chest or throat pain, or fatigue, which the researchers noted “likely represent ongoing COVID-19 symptoms.”

      COVID-19 was documented as an active diagnosis in 10 percent of patients who had at least one medical visit within the 180 days. Visits for COVID-19 symptoms decreased after 60 days, but some people still reported issues beyond 120 days.

      The researchers noted that they did not compare the number of visits among non-hospitalized adults after COVID-19 to adults not diagnosed with COVID-19. They also said three-quarters of the participants were covered by commercial insurance, mostly leaving out uninsured or publicly insured people.

      The study comes as the medical community has warned that patients with COVID-19 have reported ongoing health issues in the weeks and months after getting infected.

      A similar study published in the journal Nature this week concluded that COVID-19 survivors who were not hospitalized were 60 percent more likely to die than uninfected individuals.: https://thehill.com/policy/healthcar...lized-patients

            The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) on Sunday reported 2,438 new cases and 11 deaths, the highest on a single day since the pandemic outbreak.

            Of the total, 2,151 people were exposed to the disease while visiting high-risk areas. Proactive testing led to the discovery of 282 cases. Five cases were overseas arrivals in quarantine facilities.

            The 11 deaths reported on Sunday comprised eight men and three women. Most of them were overweight, had diabetes, high blood pressure, and hyperlipidemia, authorities said.

            One of them was a 25-week pregnant woman, 32, a resident of Bangkok. She reportedly contracted Covid-19 from visiting a crowded area and started to have fever and cough on April 8. The virus was confirmed on April 15. The patient passed away on April 23 at 10.50pm. The cause of death is under investigation.

            Meanwhile, 547 patients have recovered and been discharged in the last 24 hours.

            As of Sunday, the number of confirmed cases in Thailand had risen to 55,460. Of these, 52,460 had been contracted locally, including 21,660 who were found via proactive testing, while 3,271 were returnees. So far, 31,113 have recovered and been discharged, 24,207 patients are still in hospitals, and 140 have died.: https://www.nationthailand.com/in-focus/40000197

                • Thailand - Mongkutwattana Hospital to open a field hospital this Wednesday

                  The Mongkutwattana Hospital, in the Chaengwattana area, will set up a field hospital, on a half hectare plot next to the hospital, to accommodate patients transferred from other medical facilities after the landowner, the Ruchirawong family, consented to the use of the land, said Dr. Rienthong Nanna, the hospital director, in his Facebook post today (Sunday).

                  He said that the field hospital will be able to accommodate up to 96 severe cases, who need ventilators, and 240 patients with moderate symptoms.

                  The field hospital is scheduled to open on Wednesday.

                  He also asked the local administration to relocate the street vendors close to the field hospital.

                  Mongkutwattana hospital is currently accommodating over 300 COVID-19 patients, 6 of whom are severe cases, and about 250 asymptomatic.: https://www.thaipbsworld.com/mongkut...his-wednesday/

                    • Yeah.....India's screwed, even more so than Brazil.. Because of overcrowding, COVID's just going to run its course...however far that will be.

                      It reminds me of terrorism.....nothing is really achieved in the long run, but many innocent individuals will die and families wrecked or severely affected.

                      • Thailand - Calls for lockdown mounting

                        Calls are mounting for the government to impose a lockdown to restrict people's movement as the number of Covid-19 infections continued to soar.

                        The calls were made after Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said on a TV Pool broadcast on Friday that the government had no plan to lock down the country despite it logging more than 2,000 new infections on Saturday.

                        Eight Covid-19 deaths and a record 2,839 new cases were reported, bringing the total to 129 deaths and 53,022 infections, according to the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration. Bangkok logged the highest number of new infections at 1,582 cases.

                        The Thoracic Society of Thailand called on the government to take drastic action to restrict the movements of people. Nithiphat Chiarakun, president of the society, said the soaring number of infections is straining the public health system as many hospitals, "hospitels" and field hospitals are teetering on the edge.

                        "Any efforts to overstretch the capacity of medical personnel will lead to the collapse of he public health system,'' he warned. "The government must take decisive action to stop the movement of people as much as possible to isolate infected and at-risk for treatment and reduce the number of new infections,'' Dr Nithiphat said.

                        The government must give weight to information from the medical profession rather than politicians, he said. Those in the healthcare sector must also make the most use of what capacity they have and try to reduce the number of patients stranded in hospitals and communities, he said.

                        Calls are also mounting for the government to impose a nationwide lockdown. Benjaporn Tantasuti, a child and adolescent psychiatrist, said that without law enforcement, many Thais cannot control their behaviour during the pandemic. "The situation is worsening and it is now necessary to impose a lockdown and curfew to stifle the surge of infections. The lockdown may be imposed for a brief period to curb the spread of the virus and help ease the burden on the overwhelmed healthcare system,'' she said.

                        Chaichana Dejdecho, a Democrat Party MP and deputy spokesman, also urged the prime minister to impose a nationwide lockdown for 15 days including restrictions on inter-provincial travel, and a curfew. The government has yet to take action because it is concerned about the economic impact, but the surging infections is now putting a strain on hospitals, Mr Chaichana said.

                        Deputy Public Health Minister Sathit Pitutecha admitted the latest wave of infections has reached a critical point as there are not enough medical personnel to take care of. In light of this, the ministry has asked the prime minister to tighten measures to curb the transmissions, he said.

                        Thiravat Hemachudha, director of the Health Science Centre of Emerging Diseases at Chulalongkorn University's faculty of medicine, posted on Facebook that the war against Covid-19 is expected to be a long, drawn-out one.

                        Commenting on growing calls for a lockdown, he said many infected people are asymptomatic. If a lockdown is imposed, an asymptomatic person who fails to isolate himself from others in a house will spread the disease. When the lockdown is lifted and if those infected people in the house are also asymptomatic, they will spread the virus to many others, Dr Thiravat said.

                        Gen Prayut said on his Facebook on Saturday he has allowed provincial governors to consider imposing curfews in some areas. Provincial governors have the authority to tighten disease control measures and close premises in addition to any closures ordered by the government. If the pandemic worsens, the 14-day quarantine period for asymptomatic patients treated at hospitals may be reduced to 10 days so they can be self-quarantined at home with a tracking system.

                        The Thai Retailers Association (TRA) said hours of shopping malls, supermarkets and convenience stores will be shortened further in 18 red-zone provinces including Bangkok.

                        Starting from Sunday, malls and community malls in the 18 provinces will be open from 11am to 8pm; supermarkets and food courts must close at 9pm, and convenience stores must close from 10pm to 5am. The change will last until May 2.

                        The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) on Saturday announced 31 types of business venues at risk of Covid-19 infections will come under lockdown for 14 days from tomorrow, according to the Morlab Panda Facebook page. They include cinemas, water parks, boxing stadiums and museums.: https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand...kdown-mounting

                        • Firms can register for vaccine procurement from today

                          The Thai Chamber of Commerce and Board of Trade website on Monday opened registration for private companies who wish to procure Covid-19 vaccine at their own expense for their employees.

                          “The [registration] form will be used to gather information on vaccine requirement from the private sector,” the Thai Chamber of Commerce said.

                          “Officials will contact you once there is any progress in negotiating with manufacturers to discuss further steps in detail.”

                          The scheme will allow private companies to vaccinate their staff so that they can restart operations as soon as possible and help speed up recovery of the economy, said the chamber.

                          “We will coordinate with related government authorities to import vaccine that meets Thai regulations, and at a reasonable price. The distribution of the imported vaccine will be supervised by the Private Hospital Association Thailand.”

                          The Thai Chamber of Commerce and Board of Trade of Thailand are also looking for private companies who wish to contribute to the procurement and distribution of Covid-19 vaccine in Thailand.

                          To procure the vaccine for employees, visit https://thaichamber.org/question/159. To make a contribution, fill in the form at https://thaichamber.org/question/158.: https://www.nationthailand.com/in-focus/40000238

                            Thailand on Monday logged eight additional Covid-related deaths and 2,048 new cases, bringing the accumulated totals since the start of the pandemic to 148 fatalities and 57,508 confirmed cases.

                            The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration said only 10 of the new cases were imported.

                            Half of the eight fatalities were registered in Bangkok, it said.

                            Bangkok logged most new cases at 901, followed by Samut Prakan (110), Chon Buri (104), Nonthaburi (97) and Chiang Mai (84).

                            The capital is the hotbed of the third outbreak that started early this month with 9,076 accumulated cases, almost three times higher than Chiang Mai, which stayed second.

                            CCSA assistant spokeswoman Apisamai Srirangson said Bangkok will continue to log more than 500 new cases per day as a result of active mass testing deployed by health authorities.

                            The imported cases were four recent arrivals from India and one each from the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, China, Turkey, Hungary and Qatar.: https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand...-deaths-monday

                            • Nurses in 14-day quarantine after infected patient conceals chronology

                              Nurses at a hospital in Thailand’s southern province of Nakhon Si Thammarat have had to enter quarantine, after a COVID-19 infected patient allegedly refused to disclose their true chronology.

                              At least 10 nurses at Maharaj Nakhon Si Thammarat Hospital expressed their frustration, after they had been in close contact with the infected patient, who had recently travelled from high-risk areas.

                              A provincial public health doctor in Nakhon Si Thammarat, Dr.Charaspong Sukkree, reiterated the importance of disclosing accurate chronologies, as refusal to do so could result in legal action being taken, adding that having 10 nurses in quarantine means that its emergency medicine department will be short staffed.

                              He also said that all medical personnel have now increased their protection, assuming that all incoming patients are infected with coronavirus.: https://www.thaipbsworld.com/nurses-...ls-chronology/

                                A group of massage business owners handed in a petition to Bangkok governor Aswin Kwanmuang on Monday asking for assistance after their businesses were closed for 14 days as of Monday.

                                The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has ordered the closure of massage parlours and spas from Monday to May 9, as they are considered to pose a high risk of infection.

                                Pitak Yotha, one of the representatives, said his business has been closed three times over Covid, but the government has not offered any assistance.

                                He said massage parlours have never sparked Covid cases but are always the first to be closed.: https://www.nationthailand.com/in-focus/40000236
