Pleased to see a second day of falling numbers in Phuket. My January plans might still come to fruition. 

Also, I hope this might prove me wrong, and will lead to relaxation of the alcohol ban that has hit most of TH.

This is the lowest reported figure since June 28th.

I would agree with you....if the level of testing has been consistent....I'm not sure it has.

I know a family that was treated as all Covid positive, isolated at home. Father tested PCR positive, they didn't test the mother who was clearly positive and had symptoms, 2yr kid also had symptoms. Treated them all the same, only 1 positive test though.

If you've been following my posts on this issue elsewhere (and why would you), you will see that I've never claimed the numbers are accurate. Only that I believe the trend is downward,
