Recommended Posts

The Department of Medical Sciences says it expects the Delta Covid-19 variant to become the prevalent strain in Bangkok within the coming months. The variant was first reported in Thailand in April, when it was detected in migrant workers in the Laksi district of the capital. The spread of the variant has sparked concern globally due to it being highly contagious and potentially more resistant to vaccines. The Bangkok Post reports that a record 331 cases of the variant were reported in the capital last week, taking the total number of Delta variant infections to 822. DMS chief Supakit Sirilak […]

You don't need to be a medic to know that, it's taking over every country already, that's why i am so skeptical about Sinovac

There’s only one way to get out of this and that’s vaccinate the way out , however, with limited to none available it’s bound to eventually spread fast far and wide with “realistic” figures it could be scary in 2 to 4 months

Rush to get your vaccination ,don hesitate ,and just how is that done  with not enough vaccines for thai's let alone foreigners ,that's laughable .

Here in Bkk it needs a lockdown to stabilise the virus and give the medical profession time to treat patients as required. But as soon as you say lockdown that means “holiday”and escape to the north south east and west, ohh not forgetting north east. The border controls have been dealt with better than most western countries but the economic impact on the people and country through lack of leadership not ordering and prolonging the vaccine program until locally produced vaccines are avail has been disastrous

AZ works in UK, it will work in Thailand.

 

the only problem is race against time to get two jabs each person, and Delta gives no time.

 

lockdown + operation warspeed is the only way to minimise casualties.

Good comments, for sure, on a number of contentious issues, e.g. region and border control.

The Delta variant has proved to be the most aggressive and virulent strain so far and has raised the bar for the need for controlling cross contamination. It is however allegedly responding to most of the vaccinations available. Your term 'operation warspeed' seems very appropriate.

The Delta variant (which first came to prominence in India) is particularly infectious. It has locked down all except two states in Australia in an attempt to control it. I think we have all seen what happened in India. Do not take this strain lightly. If you do, it will do what it did in India. Every effort needs to be made to curb it's spread in the community. Thailand's hospital capacity is already beyond capacity. Many deaths will occur if this strain of the virus is left unchecked.

Nail on the head hit there - but be careful because we know who makes the local vaccines.

Yep - locked down - and it is the start of the school holidays - they didnt decide to allow people to travel a lot like those *****s running Thailand did for Songkran. Despite strict and adhered to testings and quarantines, the delta version is growing in Sydney despite all the attempts to stop it.  If this delta version takes off in Bangkok it will be a disaster for Thailand.

Several weeks ago i commented that if thailand did not act quicker against the current strains including delta,beta,and alpha that thailand could see another india disaster here, people just laughed at my comments .Now we are seeing a large increase in infections and deaths compared to 2020. If the delta strain takes control of other provinces  then lookout ,even worse if it mutates with the other strains  you could see a super virus emerging .At this moment in time with the  delta varient already here ,i don't  agree with opening  thailand until they at least get control of the current situation, you cannot be 100% sure that tourists are completely free from infection .If thailand were to see another india scenario here it would have devastating results on human lives and the economy .
