      Bangkok set a daily new high of 1,112 cases today (Saturday), out of a total of 2,419 new COVID-19 infections recorded in Thailand, according to the CCSA.

      Cumulative infections, since April 1st, have surged to 52,411, including 1,138 severe cases, of whom 380 are on ventilators.

      19 additional deaths, 8 men and 11 women, were recorded today. 7 were in Bangkok, 2 each in Pathum Thani and Samut Prakan and 1 each in Nakhon Sawan, Samut Sakhon, Kanchanaburi, Chon Buri, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Songkhla, Nakhon Pathom and Surin. Most of them had comorbidities, such as high blood pressure and diabetes. The youngest was 42 and the oldest, 93.

      Cumulative infections, since early last year, are 81,274 and the death toll is 382.

      29,473 patients are still being treated in hospitals, including 21,087 in general hospitals and 9,384 in field hospitals.

      In the coastal province of Samut Sakhon, the centre of the second wave of the pandemic in mid-December, Governor Veerasak Vichitsangsri said yesterday that he had received reports from the private sector and individuals that a number of illegal migrant workers had arrived in the province, allegedly with the help of human trafficking gangs.

      Admitting that he is very concerned about these reports, he said he has scheduled a meeting today with officials and business operators to discuss the problem and how to solve it.

      He also said that health officials will conduct saliva tests on about 15,000 people living in close proximity to a cold storage unit, which was ordered to close for 14 days yesterday after many employees, most of them migrant workers, were found to be infected.: https://www.thaipbsworld.com/bangkok...s-on-saturday/

      • 100 quarantined in Phichit after 3 civil servants test positive

        Three government offices in this northern province have been closed and 100 people sent to state quarantine facilities for 14 days after three people working in the offices tested positive for Covid-19.

        Phichit governor Rangsan Tancharoen said the three three infected people lived in neighbouring Phitsanulok province and travelled from their homes to work at the offices — Thalor municipality, the provincial land reform office and the provincial legal execution office — in Phichit.

        They later fell sick and took Covid tests. The results showed they tested positive for the virus, he said on Saturday.

        Almost 100 people known to have come into contact with the three people were asked to stay at state quarantine facilities where their conditions wold be observed for 14 days. The three offices were also ordered closed.

        Mr Rangsan said he also issued an order on Friday to bar government officials, state enterprise staff and employees of all local organisations from travelling outside Phichit without permission.

        If they receive permission to travel outside the province, they must enter quarantine for 14 days upon their return as part of Covid control measures, he said.

        Since the new wave of the outbreak began at the start of April, Phichit has reported 82 Covid-19 cases. On Saturday authorities reported an increase in Covid cases of 2,419 nationwide, with 19 more deaths.: https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand...-test-positive

        • Restaurants ask premier to ease Covid measures

          Restaurant operators have asked Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha to ease Covid-19 restrictions, including lifting the ban on dine-in services.

          Food and beverage operators have been suffering because of the restrictions imposed by the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, said Pasinee Pitaknilpradap, president of the Restaurant and Goods Product Association (RGPA).

          The government has increased its Covid controls, widening restrictions in “dark red” maximum- and strict-control zones where the virus has been spreading rapidly since the start of April.

          In dark-red provinces, including Bangkok, restaurants can open for takeout only until 9pm.

          Dining in is allowed until 9pm in red zones and until 11pm in orange zones, with no sale or consumption of alcoholic beverages. In red zones, restaurants can take orders for takeout until 11pm.

          The restrictions have hurt operators with income declining by more than 50% and hundreds of thousands of employees also affected, said Ms Pasinee, who has sent a letter to Gen Prayut asking for relief.

          The association wants the premier to help operators by allowing restaurants and eateries to provide dine-in services for customers. It has also asked him to exempt and reduce income taxes, signboard tax and building and land tax; reduce electricity and water fees, and slash employers’ contributions to the Social Security Fund (SSF).

          To help employees, the association asked the government to compensate them for lost income at a rate of 50% of their salaries, and extend the period of reduced 2% contributions to the SSF.: https://www.bangkokpost.com/business...covid-measures

          • Aerothai predicts 38% drop in local air travel

            Thailand's third outbreak of Covid-19 is predicted to send domestic air travel tumbling by 38% this fiscal year, according to the Aeronautical Radio of Thailand Ltd (Aerothai).

            Third wave infections, which began early last month, are spreading quickly across the kingdom and are expected to reduce the volume of domestic air travel by September.

            Aerothai initially predicted there would be 518,790 domestic flights this fiscal year, which began in October.

            However, the figure was revised to 323,093 flights, a 38% drop when compared with the agency's initial prediction, it said.

            Tinnagorn Choowong, Aerothai's executive vice president for operations, said the number of domestic flights had been stable in the first half of last month but it dropped dramatically in the latter half.

            The plunge was attributed to the stiff measures launched to contain the spread of the virus as the number of daily new cases kept rising, he said.

            Aerothai said domestic air travel was badly affected by the second wave of Covid-19 early in the year. During the current wave, the industry is expected to be at its lowest point at the end of this month.

            Recovery in the aviation industry is expected to begin next month after the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand relaxed restrictions for international flights. The move coincides with the government's plan to reopen the country's tourism industry starting in July.

            Healthy traffic numbers are expected to return in August when domestic flights are expected to rise to 1,095 per day, on par with the pre-second outbreak level of December last year.: https://www.bangkokpost.com/business...cal-air-travel

              Thailand on Sunday reported 2,101 new coronavirus cases and 17 new deaths, as the country struggles with a third wave of infections.

              The new cases took the total number of infections to 83,375 and total fatalities to 399 since the pandemic started last year.

              The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) said Bangkok led the country in new transmissions with 980 cases, followed by Nonthaburi (221), Samut Prakan (108), Chon Buri (96), Samut Sakhon (95) and Pathum Thani (93).

              CCSA spokesman Taweesilp Visanuyothin said more than two thirds of the new cases -- 1,457 -- were found in the capital and the five adjacent provinces of Nakhon Pathom, Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani, Samut Prakan and Samut Sakhon.

              The remaining 629 cases logged by the government on Sunday were spread around the country.

              The Bangkok district with the most infections was Promprap Sattruphai (31), followed by Klong Toey (19), Pathumwan (18) and Din Daeng (14).

              The capital also led infections of health personnel with 137 out of the total 512 cases recorded in 57 different provinces.

              Dr Taweesilp said 202 of the infected medical personnel contracted the virus from contact with patients while on duty.

              Fifteen of Sunday’s cases were imported, including three new arrivals from Singapore and two each from Germany, Malaysia, Cambodia and India. A single new patient arrived from each of Papua New Guinea, Sudan, Indonesia.

              The deaths included eight cases in Bangkok, three in Samut Prakan and one each in Chai Nat, Pathum Thani, Phrae, Samut Sakhon, Surat Thani and Songkhla, according to the centre.

              One of the fatalities was a foreigner but the nationality was not identified.: https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand...-deaths-sunday

              • All Bangkok public parks to remain closed until May 17

                All public parks under the jurisdiction of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) will remain closed until May 17, the BMA's public relations office announced on its Facebook page on Sunday.

                The announcement said a resolution to keep the public parks closed until May 17 was made by the BMA's communicable disease committee on May 7, on the grounds that the numbers of new infections in the capital city were still high.

                Therefore, in order to contain the Covid-19 pandemic, public parks closed under BMA orders dated April 24 and April 30 are to remain closed until May 17.: https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand...d-until-may-17

                • NHSO speeds up payments as healthcare sector struggles with rising Covid cases

                  The Covid-19 outbreak continues to strain healthcare providers physically and financially as they have to cope with the increased workload of screening patients and treating the infected. Extra work always comes with extra costs.

                  NHSO speeds up payments as healthcare sector struggles with rising Covid cases

                  Even though these costs will eventually be repaid, the reimbursement process may not be fast enough for many healthcare facilities to keep up with the rapid increase in operating costs.

                  The National Health Security Office (NHSO) is well aware of this problem and is trying to adjust its financial reimbursement system to better cope with the changing situation of Covid-19 and the financial impact on these healthcare providers.

                  The NHSO’s ultimate goal is to make it possible to pay all financial reimbursement to service providers instantly after claims are submitted, said NHSO secretary-general Dr Jadej Thammatach-aree.

                  To achieve that goal, the NHSO continues improving its information technology system, a task that needs more time to achieve as it deals with a substantial database system, he said.

                  Previously, the NHSO allowed healthcare providers under the Universal Coverage Scheme to submit claims for reimbursement once a month. This has now changed to every 15 days, Dr Jadej said.

                  “We hope this change will help improve hospitals’ liquidity and their ability to cope better with the changing outbreak situation that requires both work efficiency and flexibility,” he said.

                  Artificial intelligence (AI) has also been adopted to make the compensation process more efficient, he said.

                  From the beginning of this year until the end of March, a total of 781,625 Covid-19 tests have been carried out, which cost the NHSO THB1.86 billion and THB1.49 billion was spent on treating 31,488 Covid-19 patents at the same time.

                  Screening is a crucial mechanism for containing the outbreak. The National Health Security Fund had initially started offering Covid-19 screening and laboratory testing to people who meet the patient under investigation (PUI) criteria set by the Department of Disease Control for deciding as to who should be given a free Covid-19 test.

                  Most recently, the NHSO has announced that physicians will decide on a case-to-case basis as to who else should be screened for Covid-19 and the cost of testing will be covered by the NHSO.

                  Along with this change in the Covid-19 screening policy, the NHSO has also encouraged private hospitals that aren’t contracted under the Universal Coverage Scheme to become part of the same Covid-19 screening network.

                  The NHSO covers four types of Covid-19 tests, namely reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) tests via nasal and throat swaps, RT-PCR testing of pooled saliva samples combined with pooled nasal and throat swab samples, antibody testing and antigen testing.

                  The NHSO has already reached an agreement with private hospitals that they must not charge any new confirmed Covid-19 patient who needs to be admitted for treatment, Dr Jadej said.

                  Reimbursement for such providers will be made under the Universal Coverage for Emergency Patients (UCEP) unless the service is already covered by the patients’ own health insurance policies.

                  “Since Covid-19 is considered a health emergency that comes as a heavy financial burden to many people, we would like to assure all of you that if you strictly follow advice by doctors at the healthcare facility you are receiving [Covid-19 treatment] services, you won’t have to pay any extra costs,” he said.

                  In a bid to help everyone find Covid-19 screening test at a healthcare facility closest to his or her home, the NHSO has on its website provided information detailing what people are entitled to and which healthcare facilities they should consider visiting.

                  The National Health Security Board has also approved a proposal about regulations governing the spending of THB3.75 billion baht received from the government.

                  The fund was allocated to the NHSO under a Cabinet resolution reached on March 30.

                  Of the THB3.75 billion, THB3.65 billion will go to healthcare services associated with Covid-19 and the remainder will be spent on other related costs.

                  The Cabinet wants this amount to be spent separately from the UCS payment.

                  This is how the NHSO has been working to boost public confidence in access to healthcare services necessary for saving lives and curbing the spread of Covid-19 since it emerged early last year.: https://www.nationthailand.com/in-focus/40000615

                  • 2,432 patients in Bangkok discharged, 1,930 undergoing treatment

                    The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) said on Sunday that 2,432 Covid-19 patients treated at hospitals under the BMA had recovered and been discharged.

                    2,432 patients in Bangkok discharged, 1,930 undergoing treatment

                    BMA permanent secretary Silpasuay Raweesangsoon said that 1,930 patients were being treated, 27 patients had been transferred to hospitals unaffiliated with BMA and 22 patients had died.

                    Of the 1,930 hospitalised patients, 307 were in hospitals under the BMA, 1,311 in field hospitals and 312 in hospitels. She said 731 beds were still available at field hospitals and and 282 in hospitels.

                    "To deal with the increasing number of Covid-19 cases, the BMA has arranged medical personnel, supplies and facilities -- hospitals, field hospitals and "hospitels" -- to take care of both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients," she said.: https://www.nationthailand.com/in-focus/40000699

                    • Is treatment for COVID-19 really free in Thailand?

                      Despite the government’s repeated assurance that treatment for COVID-19 is free, not everyone is convinced. Copies of hefty hospital bills for COVID care are circulating widely on social media platforms.

                      One patient was hit with a bill of Bt937,979 for 16 days in a private hospital, which included three days in intensive care (ICU). Another had to pay Bt989,670 for 17 days in hospital, 13 of which were spent in ICU.

                      People who need COVID-19 treatment should therefore study their options carefully, including which services are free.

                      What the govt says

                      Dr Tares Krassanairawiwong, director-general of the Health Service Support Department, insisted again this month that all COVID-19 patients will receive free treatment from any state or private hospital. For each patient, the National Health Security Office (NHSO) will pay up to Bt7,200 for medicines, Bt1,500 per night in a hospital, field hospital or hospitel and about Bt3,800 for other items related to COVID-19 care.

                      “Patients don’t have to pay even when being treated in a private hospital because the NHSO will reimburse the cost,” said NHSO secretary-general Dr Jadej Thammatacharee. “On average, we pay private hospitals about Bt100,000 per [COVID] patient with moderate symptoms, and have paid Bt800,000 to Bt1 million for severe cases.”

                      However, Tares said patients who want more convenience or special services would have to pay more, in line with fees charged by their medical facilities.

                      What private hospitals say

                      Thonburi Healthcare Group’s chairman Dr Boon Vanasin said in a recent media interview that when a patient is diagnosed with COVID-19 in a private hospital, they may either be admitted or transferred to another designated medical facility. In this case, the treatment will be free.

                      “But if the patient refuses the process prescribed by the government and chooses to be treated in their own hospital, then they will have to pay the difference between the medical cover provided by the government and fees charged by private hospitals,” he told media recently.

                      Boon said the cost of services like specialists’ fees and medical supplies at private hospitals and state facilities are different. As a result, the patient might have to shoulder the difference.

                      For instance, Thonburi Healthcare Group charges patients with mild or no symptoms Bt40,000 for a 14-day stay in a hospitel. If the patient has a serious underlying condition such as heart disease or uncontrollable diabetes, then the bill rises to Bt200,000 on average if they stay in a private room. In serious cases, where ICU care and hospitalization of up to one month is required, the bill may rise to Bt1 million-Bt1.5 million.: https://www.thaipbsworld.com/is-trea...e-in-thailand/

                      • Indian variant of Covid-19 confirmed in Thailand

                        The variant was detected in a Thai woman and her young son arriving from Pakistan, prompting authorities to consider widening the ban on international arrivals to other countries besides India.

                        Apisamai Srirangson, the assistant spokeswoman for the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, said on Monday the woman and her three sons, aged four, six and eight, arrived in Thailand from Pakistan via Dubai on April 24.

                        All were in a state-arranged quarantine facility after the arrival and the first tests found the mother and her youngest son were positive, while the other children were not infected.

                        A whole genome sequencing test conducted at Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital on Sunday confirmed the virus detected on them was the variant from India, named B.1.617.1.

                        "These were the first detections of the Indian variant in the country," Dr Apisamai said.

                        The B.1.617.1 variant was recorded for the first time in India in October before spreading to other countries. Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh were among the nations on the subcontinent where this virus was found. In Southeast Asia, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia have detected the same variant.

                        Dr Apisamai said authorities were worried by the arrival of this version of the virus and the new danger it poses. "There is concern about this variant and about the possibility that it could mutate in Thailand," she added.

                        Thailand has barred foreign arrivals from India since the beginning of this month due to worries about the Indian variant. The Thai embassy in India does not issue certificates of entry (COE) to any non-Thai nationals, effectively meaning they cannot travel to the kingdom.

                        The assistant spokeswoman said the Foreign Ministry and Department of Disease Control were on Monday holding discussions about halting the issuance of the entry permit in other countries to try to keep the Indian variant of Covid-19 out of Thailand.

                        She did not name the countries but said the variant had been recorded in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal.

                        "There is a possibility of delaying COEs in other countries," she added.: https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand...ed-in-thailand

                        • Thailand logs 22 Covid deaths, 1,630 new cases Monday

                          The government recorded 1,630 new coronavirus cases on Monday, sharply lower than Sunday's tally of 2,101, taking the accumulated total since the beginning of the pandemic to 85,005.

                          The death toll passed the 400 mark, however, rising by 22 to 421.

                          The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) said on Monday the fatalities comprised 13 victims in Bangkok, two in Chiang Mai and one each in Chachoengsao, Khon Kaen, Maha Sarakham, Pathum Thani, Rayong, Samut Prakan and Suphan Buri.

                          CCSA assistant spokeswoman Apisamai Srirangson said two died the same day they received their test results, while seven others passed away within a week of their diagnoses.

                          "These cases confirm that if you develop symptoms, you should contact officials for testing as soon as possible," she said.

                          The number of new cases in Bangkok dropped by almost by half from the 980 recorded on Sunday to 565 on Monday, but the capital still logged more cases than any other province. Nonthaburi came second with 158 cases, followed by Samut Prakan (116) and Samut Sakhon (85).

                          • Infected Thais sneaking back across border worry authorities

                            Five recent Covid-19 imports from neighbouring countries have underscored the danger of the virus being brought into Thailand by illegal border crossers, authorities say.

                            The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) on Sunday said the five cases were all Thais who sneaked back into the country without passing through border checkpoints.

                            Two illegally crossed the border to Sa Kaeo from Cambodia on Thursday, while another two returned from Malaysia on April 28 and last Monday, respectively. One Thai slipped into Tak from Myanmar on May 2. All were admitted to state hospitals.

                            Thai authorities arrested 15,378 people sneaking in from Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia and Myanmar in the first four months of this year, CCSA data showed. More than a third -- 6,700 -- were Myanmar nationals, and another 1,700 were Thais.

                            The large number of arrests came despite intensified border patrols by security forces.

                            "We are worried about this problem," CCSA spokesman Taweesilp Visanuyothin told a press conference, adding that the concern was shared by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha and National Security Council Secretary-General Gen Natthapol Nakpanich.

                            Deputy army spokeswoman Col Sirichan Ngathong said in another briefing that soldiers captured 380 illegal migrants, at least 43 of them Thais, along the border with Myanmar and Cambodia from April 30 to Sunday.

                            Like Thailand, countries around the kingdom are battered by the Covid-19 outbreak. The virus has claimed 399 lives and infected 83,375 people in Thailand since the pandemic began last year.

                            The borders with Myanmar and Malaysia posed the most serious problem, he said. Many Myanmar nationals crossed into Thailand seeking jobs or fleeing the conflict there, while while Thais working in Malaysia wanted to come home because of the outbreak there.

                            Col Sirichan said on Sunday that the Myanmar nationals arrested along the border from April 30 to Sunday were job seekers and were either pushed back or charged with illegal entry.

                            In another case, 10 Myanmar nationals who had been working in Malaysia and were trying to get back to their home country were apprehended in Sadao district of Songkhla on Sunday.

                            Col Ayuphan Kanasutra, who commanded a task force at the border, said security authorities had intercepted two taxis on a local road transporting the illegal migrants to Hat Yai district, from where they were to be smuggled back to Myanmar.

                            The Myanmar nationals, along with two Thai drivers identified as Abdulrahman Kongkslimuen and Siriwat Suwanmanee, were sent to Sadao police station to be charged.: https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand...ry-authorities

                              The government reported another 31 Covid-19 fatalities on Tuesday, for an accumulated toll of 452, and 1,919 new infections raise the total caseload since the start of the pandemic to 86,924.

                              The daily death toll matched the record high announced on May 3, when the government reported 2,041 new cases. It compares with 22 new deaths reported on Monday and 1,630 new cases.

                              Updating the figures on Tuesday, the Department of Disease Control said that since the third wave of Covid-19 started early last month there have been 58,061 cases.

                              Of these, 29,611 had recovered, including 1,829 discharged over the past 24 hours.

                              Taweesilp Visanuyothin, spokesman for the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, said later during his daily briefing that 17 of the 31 fatalities were in Bangkok, two each in Nonthaburi, Suphanburi, Chon Buri and Nakhon Si Thammarat provinces and one each in Nakhon Pathom, Pathumthani, Samut Prakan, Lampang, Chiang Mai and Phichit.

                              He said 15 were men and 16 were women. They were 34-94 years old and included two foreigners, Ukrainian and French nationals.

                              Thirteen of them had hypertension and 10 diabetes. Other chronic diseases they suffered were high cholesterol, renal disease, heart disease, obesity, previous stroke, thyroid disorder, lung disease, liver disease and lupus.

                              Seventeen fatalities caught Covid-19 from infected relatives and four from colleagues. Two visited markets. Two more visited at-risk provinces. One was in close contact with a previously confirmed case. Another worked at an entertainment place.

                              Since April 1, Covid-19 had claimed 318 lives in Thailands, of which 86% had a chronic illness and 46% were in Bangkok, Dr Taweesilp said.

                              The 1,919 new cases over the previous 24 hours were in 60 provinces. They included 1,902 local infections, of which 1,318 were confirmed at hospitals and 584 through mass testing.

                              Of the new community infections, 855 were in Bangkok, 160 in Pathum Thani, 141 in Nonthaburi, 89 in Chanthaburi, 73 in Chon Buri, 70 in Samut Prakan, 44 in Ranong, 42 in Surat Thani, 38 in Nakhon Ratchasima and 35 in Samut Sakhon.

                              New daily cases from the third Covid-19 wave linked to entertainment places were declining and health authorities hoped there would be no more gambling gatherings which could make the Covid-19 situation more complicated, Dr Taweesilp said.

                              Seventeen new cases were quarantined arrivals from India (11 Thai returnees), Pakistan (1), the Philippines (1), Africa (1) and Cambodia (3 Thai returnees).: https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand...-919-new-cases
