    The thai figures are skewed for sure. Does anyone really believe that with thousands from Wuhan visiting for Chinese new year end of March, that only a few thousand got infected? What about Aril when millions returned to Isaan for the lockdown? No one took and spread any virus? What about the queues for food handouts with non mask wearers? What about the hundreds of expats queuing for visas, extensions and reporting before amnesty announced? Tests are not free, and like a poster above I know many people where I live who were ill and not tested, they certainly dont get everyone who dies in rural areas tested.I know personally some in Isaan who were positive, did it not pass to anyone else?

    It is hard to believe the figures are real especially when you see the way people crowd together. I also wonder with such low infection rates why they keep some things closed down. Is it the hotter weather, sunshine (vitamin D helps fight viruses) and high intake of eggs in diet (also vitamin D). no scientific proof to support this though. I know a person who works for the Police who said a lot of pneumonia cases were reported.

    Agree with above. Figures are low though perhaps due to hot and sunny weather when it first appeared in Thailand. High Vitamin D from sunlight. Many people wearing masks due the pollution levels at the time and afterwards due to enforcement eg. no mask no entry. (I can see the stars again at night now.) Perhaps sheer good luck. It is here though I'm sure, but there isn't many deaths from it and most Thais don't seem to know anyone who's had it.
    I was quite ill though but it started in mid December and we didn't really know anything about it then. The coughing though was horrendous. I will never know what it was for sure.

    You culd have antibody test, that would show. I do not think Thailand will offer those or want to as it would show too many lol Most Thais would not know symptoms and up to 50% would not even know, and anothr 30% just mild symptoms so would not even bother to see doctor.

    Several countries in the area that had a good response to the initial outbreak are reporting increased infections aka second wave but thailand appears to be avoiding that too.
    I think people in Thailand wouldn't be discussing infections that they know about even if unconfirmed and just symptoms especially online, there are laws about that after all.

    In the last couple of days the worldwide cumulative infection rate passed 16 million and today has exceeded 16.25 million (worldometers). A number of countries are showing significant daily rises in new infections, with the USA, Brazil and India continuing to be particularly hard hit.

    With an increasing infection rate, sadly we are also seeing the worldwide death rate continuing in its recent rise. It appears some people around the world are not treating this situation seriously enough.

    Closer to home, a number of European countries are also seeing a rising trend in infection rates with Spain, Poland, Switzerland, Belgium, The Netherlands and one or two others seeing rising numbers.

    The UK infection rate appears to have plateaued from its recent downward trajectory, hopefully we'll not begin to see our numbers heading northwards after all the progress the UK has made.

    Today's COVID-19 figures for Thailand and the UK are as follows:

    Thailand notes:
    This is the 61st day without report of a community acquired infection.
    Thailand's new cases were found in state quarantine, Thai citizens who had recently returned from abroad.
    It is 53 days since a COVID-19 related death was last reported (2nd June).

    The UK reports its lowest daily COVID-19 death figure since 4 days after the very first COVID-19 death was reported (9 March). That is excellent news. The UK 7-day rolling average is now under 64.

    Today's COVID-19 figures for Thailand and the UK are as follows:

    Thailand notes:
    This is the 62nd day without report of a community acquired infection.
    Thailand's new cases were found in state quarantine, Thai citizens who had recently returned from USA (3) and Taiwan.
    It is 54 days since a COVID-19 related death was last reported (2nd June).

    The worldwide infection rate today reaches 17 million, the headliners are the USA (4.5m), Brazil (2.5m) and India (1.5m) (data from worldometers).

    Infection rates in the UK have plateaued, perhaps showing a very slight increase. I suppose this is expected given we are now almost 4 weeks in to the relaxing of the lockdown and the shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants reopening. As of yesterday the the 7-day rolling average daily rate of infection was 696, the recent lowest rate was at 545 on 8 July.

    England had the highest levels of excess deaths in Europe between the end of February to the middle of June, official analysis shows. The Office for National Statistics said England saw the second highest peak rates of death in Europe, after Spain. But England had the longest period where deaths were above average, and so overall had the highest levels.

    The ONS analysis shows the epidemic in the UK was more widely spread than in other countries. However areas in Spain and Italy were harder hit than cities in the UK.

    Analyses that take account of the age of the population also show that England had the highest death rates in Europe in the weeks to the end of May. Spain was second, followed by Scotland, Belgium and Wales.

    I watched a Panorama episode on the pandemic https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episod...avirus-coverup

    During the course of the documentary it said that Thailand had the first confirmed case in the world outside China. Given at that time little was known about the virus and how it is spread I can't decide whether to be flummoxed or impressed with Thailand's figures when you compare them to other countries.

    The UK infection rate continues on the gentle rise we've observed this last week or so. I hope this is not due to the public's complacency. We need to remember this curse is still very much with us and we must all follow the Government's advice to curb the rise by social distancing, regular hand washing and wearing masks on public transport, in shops and in confined spaces.

    Today's COVID-19 figures for Thailand and the UK are as follows:

    Thailand notes:
    This is day 65 without report of a community acquired infection.
    Thailand's new cases were found in state quarantine, Thai citizens who had recently returned from Egypt (4) and Saudi Arabia (2).
    It is 57 days since a COVID-19 related death was last reported (2nd June).

    British Grand Prix: Racing Point's Sergio Perez tests positive for Covid-19

    By Andrew BensonChief F1 writer

    Sergio Perez is sixth in the 2020 Formula 1 drivers' championship after two sixth-placed finishes and a seventh in the last race in Hungary Racing Point's Sergio Perez has tested positive for coronavirus and will miss this weekend's British Grand Prix.
    The Mexican is the first Formula 1 driver to test positive since the 2020 season made a belated start in Austria this month.

    Perez has gone into self-quarantine, along with all his close contacts, as per F1's track-and-trace system.
    A statement from governing body the FIA said "procedures… have provided for swift containment".
    The statement adds that Perez's positive test "will have no wider impact on this weekend's event".
    Racing Point said Perez was "physically well and in good spirits, but he will continue to self-isolate under the guidelines of the relevant public health authorities, with safety the ultimate priority for the team and the sport".
    The team said it planned to enter two cars in the British Grand Prix and would "communicate the next steps in due course".

    Amazing with all the quarantine and social distancing etc that F1 has been doing

    Thailand notes:
    This is day 66 without report of a community acquired infection.
    Thailand's new cases were found in state quarantine, Thai citizens who had recently returned from Egypt (5) and The Netherlands (1).

    Worldwide cumulative infection rates have exceeded 18 million today, the USA (4.77m), Brazil (2.71m) and India (1.76m) continue to lead the worldometers infection leaderboard.

    Although the UK has recently seen its infection trend rise slightly in recent days, over the last two days Iran and Columbia have overtaken the UK in the total number of infections at 309,437 and 306,181 respectively.

    Notwithstanding the UK infection rate has risen slightly in the last week or two, thankfully the same cannot be said for the numbers who are dying from this virus. The UK 7-day average number of daily deaths was at 64 yesterday, which whilst sad, is encouraging. Today we see single figures, for only the second time since before the lockdown. As a result of the UK death rate slowing, Mexico has overtaken the UK in the total number of COVID-19 related deaths (47,472).

    Thailand continues to report encouraging figures, it has been two months since it last reported a COVID-19 related death, and just shy of 10 weeks since there was a report of a community acquired infection.

    Today's COVID-19 figures for Thailand and the UK are as follows:

    Thailand notes:
    This is day 68 without report of a community acquired infection.
    Thailand's new cases were found in state quarantine, Thai citizens who had recently returned from abroad.
    It is 60 days since a COVID-19 related death was last reported (2nd June).

    South Africa Hits 500,000 Confirmed COVID Cases, Still Not at Peak

    By Associated Press
    August 01, 2020 06:08 PM




    FILE - Silva Cossa, the caretaker, looks up as he ties ribbons onto a fence to represent a South African who has died from COVID-19, at St James Presbyterian Church in Bedford Gardens, Johannesburg, South Africa, July 29, 2020.

    JOHANNESBURG - South Africa on Saturday surpassed 500,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases, representing more than 50% of all reported coronavirus infections in Africa's 54 countries.
    Health Minister Zwelini Mkhize announced 10,107 new cases Saturday night, bringing the country's cumulative total to 503,290, including 8,153 deaths.
    South Africa, with a population of about 58 million, has the fifth-highest number of cases in the world, behind the U.S., Brazil, Russia and India, all countries with significantly higher populations, according to a tally by Johns Hopkins University. Experts say the true toll of the pandemic worldwide is much higher than confirmed cases, because of limited testing and other reasons.
    1 million soon?
    "Half a million is a significant milestone, because it shows we've entered a stage of rapid increases. We may reach 1 million cases very quickly," said Denis Chopera, a virologist based in Durban. "What we know for sure is that the figures are an underestimate and that this virus will be with us for a long time to come."
    South Africa's Gauteng province — which includes Johannesburg, the country's largest city, and Pretoria, the capital — is the country's epicenter with more than 35% of its confirmed cases. Local hospitals have been struggling to cope, and health experts say the country could reach the peak of its outbreak in late August or early September.
    Cape Town, a city beloved by international tourists at the country's southern tip, was the first epicenter and reached its peak last month, according to health experts.

    "The Western Cape had the first peak and did relatively well. Gauteng is the epicenter now and appears to be coping so far," he said. "Other provinces, like the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal, do not have reputations for well-organized health care systems. They may have serious problems."
    South Africa imposed a strict lockdown in April and May that succeeded in slowing the spread of the virus but caused such economic damage that the country began a gradual reopening in June.
    Recession preceded virus
    South Africa was already in recession before the coronavirus hit, and its unemployment stands at 30%. President Cyril Ramaphosa's government has extended grants to the country's poorest, increased supplies to hospitals and recently accepted a $4.3 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund.
    Corruption in the country's pandemic response is a growing problem. On Thursday, the top health official in Gauteng province was forced to step down over corruption allegations related to government contracts for COVID-19 personal protective equipment.
    Ramaphosa has warned that now, more than ever, South Africa's persistent problem with widespread graft is endangering people's lives.
