Thailand COVID Update May 12, 2022

Thailand Ministry of Health reports 8,019 new COVID-19 cases and an additional 59 deaths since yesterday. The ministry also announced an additional 8,807 patients recovered from the COVID-19 virus.

If nightclubs, bars, and other night entertainment facilities are allowed to reopen, the public health committee has ordered the Department of Disease Control (DDC) to pursue effective Covid-19 measures.

Anutin Charnvirakul, the country’s Deputy Prime Minister and Public Health Minister stated on Wednesday that the country’s daily infection and death rates had decreased, indicating the country’s transition to an endemic phase.

On Wednesday, the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) reported 17,386 new cases, with 9,736 positive antigen test findings, while mortality fell below 100 for the first time since May 1. There were 56 fatalities in Covid-19.

“This is the result of the efforts by those who strictly comply with Covid-19 prevention measures and the high ratio of people who have received Covid-19 vaccination,” he said.

To move forward, the ministry met with the DDC to develop ways to assist such venues in resuming operations and to encourage foreign tourists to always use face masks.

“Right now, controlling the disease is not a problem but controlling people’s behavior is. We still need to encourage people to put on face masks,” he said.

Meanwhile, Anutin Charnvirakul, the Minister of Public Health, has agreed to conduct an investigation into why so many individuals have died from Covid-19 after receiving three vaccine doses.

Following a meeting of the national communicable disease committee on Wednesday, he announced the investigation.

According to him, roughly 7% of those infected with three doses died, but no deaths were reported among those who received four doses. The majority of deaths were recorded among senior folks and people with chronic conditions.
