Yet....  according to the Government's [fantasy] report on covid cases, the entire Chiang Wat has less than our local tambon.

PCR confirmation is required.

Most definitely under reported. Yet still leas than 70 new deaths per day. That's what you need to pay attention to. 

During all of last year the positivity rate of PCR tests was around 35%-40%, which is an astonishing number. To give you an example for comparison, in the US the rate never got above 3%-5%.

In Malaysia next door, with 1/3 of the population, they were conducting more PCR tests daily for most of last year. Thailand had found a basic, and crude, way to look respectable on the global Covid table.
