Thailand might be the next Italy

Thailand might be the next Italy



A doctor has posted online his opinion on the Covid-19 situation in Thailand, stating that Thailand might become the next Italy. The Facebook Page “Stories from doctor on the border” in Thai posted “I can predict that 10 days from now Thailand will be the next Italy.

The number of patients will jump up and people will die so fast that no one can help them. This can be someone in your family, or you. This is because our definition of Social distancing and Self-quarantine is not serious enough. Still going out, dining outside, celebrations with more than 60 people. You can’t warn them because they’ll just give you hell.

Citizens are traveling outside of the shutdown areas and no one is stopping them. When people are traveling out of the city with the highest number of cases to return home, this is just like Italy… When those in charge aren’t doing anything and in some ways making it worse. There is already a shortage of hospital equipment. I am not confident enough to say that this is controllable. Is it time that the people work together to stop the pandemic?”

Another doctor Withan Thanawuth, M.D., from Siriraj Hospital, revealed a graph of the situation in Thailand that is similar to Italy’s and Iran’s graphs. The number of cases is rising fast in a short period of time, leading to a health care system that cannot keep up. The graph is based on Vox analysis of the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University data, through March 15. Iran is represented in Orange, South Korea in yellow, Italy in navy, USA in pink, Japan in blue, Singapore in green, Hongkong in purple, and Thailand in red.

The doctor reveals that Thailand right now is at a crucial point, if we can control the situation in time then Thailand will follow Japan and Singapore. But, if the number keeps on jumping up in the next 5-7 days then we will follow Italy and Iran. He also expressed his confusion as to why the government won’t communicate more to the people, this is so that we can all understand how important this situation actually is and take action in preventing the spread of Covid-19. The most useful action the people can take right now is to stay home.

Nine Thai airlines get the nod to ground flights during Covid-19 crisis

The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) has allowed nine airlines to halt their flights due to the Covid-19 situation, director-general Chula Sukmanop said on Tuesday (March 24).
“The nine airlines that had submitted requests to temporarily halt their operations are: Thai Airways International, THAI Smile, Bangkok Airways, Thai AirAsia, Thai AirAsia X, Thai Lion Air, Nok Air, Nok Scoot and Thai VietJet Air,” he said. “Most airlines want to cancel only some flights and some routes, so we have approved their requests accordingly.
"However, they must have plans to compensate customers who have already bought their tickets and they must notify the customers of flight cancelations in advance.”
Thai Lion Air had earlier announced that they would suspend all domestic and international flights between March 25 and April 30, while THAI Smile, Thai AirAsia and Bangkok Airways also announced that they would suspend all international flights from March 22 until further notice.
THAI also announced on Tuesday that all TG flights to Europe will be suspended from April 1 to May 31, while regional flights (including Singapore) would be suspended from March 25 to May 31.
The Ministry of Transport had earlier announced that airlines wishing to cancel their flights due to force majeure must compensate their customers by refunding the cost of tickets and other related fees. In case the customers had bought tickets with cash, the refund transaction must be completed within seven days of the customers submitting their request.

State of emergency tightens rules for foreigners travelling to Thailand

Thailand has effectively closed its doors for non-resident foreigners wanting to enter the country under the state of emergency that comes into force on Thursday (March 26), Only some groups of people will be allowed to enter and exit the country and only the prime minister and responsible authorities will be authorised to open the borders in special cases.

Those who transport goods will be allowed to enter the country provided they leave quickly. Operators of land, sea and air transport like drivers, pilots and ship crew must follow their time table. Diplomatic staff, members of international organisations and government representatives who have missions in Thailand are allowed to come in. Their family members also will be allowed if authorised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Non-Thai nationals who have work permits in Thailand also will be allowed. Thai nationals contracted with a Thai embassy or consulate must obtain a fit-to-fly health certificate issued no more than 72 hours before travelling.

30 horses die in one day in Thailand’s Northeast

30 horses have mysteriously died in Thailand’s Northeast yesterday.
The Thailand Equestrian Federation is urging horse fanciers not to transport any animals until a cause can be identified. It’s unlikely the situation has anything to do with the Covid-19 outbreak.
10 of the horses had sudden severe seizures before dying and the other 20 repeatedly bucked and jumped before collapsing, dead.



Veterinarians are performing autopsies to try and discover what happened.
The federation is concerned that a shared disease could be the cause, and has asked the Department of Livestock Development and other government agencies to investigate the matter urgently.

Govt temporarily blocks all travel
State quarantine facilities, measures being prepared

The government will block all travel to Thailand, including by Thais, for half a month to prepare "state quarantine" facilities after more local patients have been linked to imported cases.

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said the government needs time to properly prepare for state quarantine.

"Related agencies will in the meantime prepare the places and coordinate with Thai embassies to ensure all Thais returning home will be quarantined and get proper medical checks," he said.     

Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin, spokesman of the government's Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, said on Thursday that Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha told the centre that arrivals by foreigners and Thais would have to be slowed down "to stop the disease".

"If the number of arrivals does not drop, people in our country will be infected," he said.

The new measure started immediately on Thursday and will continue until April 15. It will not apply to people who earlier sought permission to travel to Thailand, he said.

Affected Thai people should contact Thai embassies and followed their instructions, he said.

Dr Taweesin said recent arrivals had proved to be a major source of local infections. The cases included the infected Thai man who had visited Pakistan and died on a south-bound train in Prachuab Khiri Khan province.

He also cited six Thais who returned from meetings in Italy, four of whom tested positive. The cases led to the quarantine of 50 other people.

Besides, of the 132 Thai who had attended religious activities in Malaysia, 47 contracted the disease, four died and about 1,000 others were quarantined.

Of the 56 Thais who had attended religious ceremonies in Indonesia, 32 were infected and about 500 were quarantined.

Four Thai people from England contracted the disease and one of them died. This group included one who concealed his symptoms and returned to the country, Dr Taweesin said. About 200 people were quarantined as a result.

Besides, 19 Thais crossing the border from Poi Pet town of Cambodia were infected and about 300 had to be quarantined.

Some visitors proved to carry the disease and most of them came from Europe, Dr Taweesin said.

"This is a lesson and we must adapt ourselves," he said.

Up until now, Thais seeking to return home by air were required to have fit-to-fly certificates and letters from embassies comfirming they are Thai nationals seeking to return home.

Foreign travellers to Thailand had to show authorities a health certificate, issued no more than 72 hours before travelling, confirming that they had been tested and are free from the virus. They must also present an insurance policy showing minimum coverage for coronavirus of not less than US$100,000.

It remains unclear whether these measures will come into effect again after April 15.

COVID-19: Death toll in Thailand reaches 19


BANGKOK(NNT) - The Spokesman for the Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration, Dr. Taweesin Visanuyothin, said today that there were four more deaths and 103 more confirmed cases of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Thailand, as of Friday morning (Apr 3).

Dr. Taweesin said Thailand now has an accumulated total of 1,978 confirmed cases, 581 of whom have recovered while the death toll has increased to 19.
Of the four recent deaths, three of them were elderly people with congenital diseases and others had a travel history that showed they visited boxing stadiums.
Although the number of new cases has declined, it is still a three-digit figure. There were more cases in Phuket, Bangkok and Nonthaburi.
Many of them are associated with recent clusters of infections at entertainment venues and patients who had just returned from abroad.

The government has prepared facilities to accommodate people returning from foreign countries.
They include students under the American Field Service (AFS) Intercultural Programs, who will return from Malaysia.
They are advised to strictly follow guidelines set by the government to help prevent the potential spread of COVID-19 to other people.

Chaos at Suvarnabhumi. Thai arrivals protest mandatory 14 day quarantine



Hundreds of Thai citizens refused mandatory Covid-19 quarantine orders at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi airport after returning from abroad last night.
Flights from the US and Japan carrying Thai nationals landed at the Suvarnabhumi Airport yesterday, as citizens were returning home on emergency flights to be with family during the Covid-19

Many were unaware of the strict government emergency measures introduced on Thursday demanding all arrivals to be quarantined for 14 days and having to submit government health checks. Arrivals who landed after the 10pm curfew were also prohibited them from leaving the airport. The typical means of returning home – taxis, buses, airport link – were all banned from picking up passengers and violators faced up to two years in prison if they left the airport.

The new rules erupted into chaos in the arrivals area near the baggage claim. Some passengers, according to Thai Media Agency, allegedly tried to run past airport security and health care workers.

Passengers who expected to return home were confronted by officers who told them they would need to go to a quarantine facility for 14 days. An officer said, “taking orders from the government and the rules must be adhered to for the safety of the public”.

Thailand currently bans non-residents from entering the country under the current emergency situation, but Thai nationals are allowed to return if they have a letter from the Embassy and a ‘ fit to fly ‘ certificate before boarding.

With regard to the 14 day quarantine on arrival, PM Prayut Chan-o-cha said, “Related agencies will coordinate with Thai embassies to ensure all Thais returning home will be quarantined and get proper medical checks.”

Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin, spokesman of the government’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, said the new measures started this week and would continue until April 15.
