An official from the Ministry of Public Health announced that today Thailand had its first reported death from the Omicron variant of Covid-19. The death was recorded in Songkhla province in the south of Thailand and was an 86 year-old woman from Hat Yai. The Omicron variant has been spreading quickly through Thailand as it is much more contagious than other strains but has also generally proven to be weaker and less deadly than the Delta variant it has largely replaced. When it was first detected in the country, the fear of a massive outbreak led officials to cancel the […]

Reality is, as unfortunate as this death is. This woman was 86 years old and bedridden. Omicron did not kill her, merely was the catalyst. It should also be considered that the average age of women in Thailand is about 80 years old. She very well could’ve been killed by a cold, a flu, a bacterial infection etc. I was for many months and years a strong proponent of Covid caution. However recently the virus has evolved into basically a minor cold.

just another fear mongering article to help push the covid narrative.  Media is running out of ideas to scare the public now, they are so upset that Omicron isn't deadly at all.

I disagree. Her age is indicated in the summary, and it's just a single case. 

It could be read "Only one death, out of tens of thousands of infections" 

I'm sure the government isn't interested in scaring people away AND promoting tourism at the same time....?

This story illustrates perfectly how people have failed with the simple basics during this pandemic. All that needs to be done, is to be cautious around individuals that are at risk. If that was done, we would not be seeing deaths. Especially here in the United States. Here is a woman who was confined to a bed, with no way of going out and contracting CV19. Two years into the pandemic, a family member who most likely engaged in activities that increased their chances of catching CV19, brings it to her and she dies as a result. If the government was serious about this then he should be arrested. Completely avoidable. It is because of this type of behavior that this nonsense is never going to end.

If sick people dying warranted arrests, lots of medical staff would be in jail. 

I read of one senior home was massively infected by medical staff who spread it during their work duties. 

Why aren't doctors or staff around to train or prevent these "crimes" if it's relatives or friends? 

And being confined to bed, was she unable to prevent people from visiting her?

Queensland breaks its Covid death toll record with seven deaths (msn.com)

Of the seven dead 2 were unvaccinated the others vaccinated with two jabs.

2 were over 90, 5 0ver 80.

None had booster shots.

Queensland has a temperate to warm climate similar to Thailand.

1 only in Thailand that has been confirmed.

Still a cause for concern for the elderly and unvaccinated children, therefore a concern for all who come in contact with these people.

Omricon kills, just not so many, yet.
