    Thailand on Tuesday (October 19) reported 9,122 new COVID-19 cases, 10,731 recoveries and 71 additional deaths over the past 24 hours.

     

    ▶︎ Total infections since April 1: 1,774,071

    ▶︎ Total recoveries since since April 1: 1,651,555

     

    Tuesday’s cases bring the total number of COVID-19 infections in Thailand to 1,802,934 with 18,407 deaths.

     

    The news comes as Thailand will stop using the COVID-19 vaccine of China’s Sinovac when its current stock finishes, a senior official said on Monday, having used the shot extensively in combination with Western-developed vaccines.

     

    Thailand used over 31.5 million Sinovac doses since February, starting with two doses to frontline workers, high-risk groups and residents of Phuket, a holiday island that reopened to tourists early in a pilot scheme.

     

    In July, Thailand started inoculating people with Sinovac as a first dose followed by the Oxford University-developed AstraZeneca. Thailand was the first country to combine a Chinese and Western shots, a strategy its health officials said has proved effective.

    Thailand on Monday (October 18) reported 10,111 new COVID-19 cases, 10,612 recoveries and 63 additional deaths over the past 24 hours.

     

    ◼︎10,612 recoveries

    ◼︎ 10,070 new infections

    ◼︎ 41 prison / prison infections

     

    ▶︎ Total infections since April 1: 1,764,949

    Monday’s cases bring the total number of COVID-19 infections in Thailand to 1,793,812 with 18,336 deaths.

     

    The news comes as a recent opinion poll shows 60.1% of Thai people surveyed do not agree with the November 1st reopening of Thailand to vaccinated foreign travels without quarantine, saying that the country is not yet ready because less than 70% of the population have been vaccinated.

     

    The survey also shows, however, that 39.9% of those surveyed agree that the November 1st target is timely.

    Thailand on Sunday reported 10,863 new COVID-19 cases, 10,383 recoveries and 68 more deaths.

     

    The new cases continue the stabilizing trend of infections, which health officials say are the result of an acceleration of Thailand’s vaccination program in addition to the preventative measures put in place earlier this year.

     

    Sunday’s cases bring the total number of infections to more than 1.78 million while the total of recoveries stand at 1.65 million. There have been 18, 273 deaths, according to the Ministry of Public Health.

    Meanwhile, more than 62 million vaccine doses have been administered in Thailand to date, with over 50 percent of the population having received at least one vaccine dose. Just over 34 percent of the population have received two doses.

    Thailand is currently stepping up the vaccine rollout to students aged between 12 and 18 in a bid to resume in-class learning from November, which is when the second school term would typically begin.

    Earlier the Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) said it aims for 70 percent of the population to have received at least one vaccine dose by November, and 70 percent of the population to be fully vaccinated by the end of 2021.

    Last week, the CCSA announced an easing of restrictions of across Thailand.

    The Thai government also confirmed its plan to waive quarantine for fully vaccinated foreign tourists from a number of countries deemed to be low risk.

    Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-o-cha has confirmed the country will reopen to vaccinated foreign tourists from 10 low risk countries who arrive by air on Nov 1.

     

    During a meeting on Thursday lunchtime (Oct 14), it was also announced that the night time curfew will be reduced to 11pm-3am.

     

    The new curfew will be effective from Oct 16 and will remain in place until the end of October.

     

    With the reduction of the curfew restaurants and convenience stores can now open until 10pm.

     

    However, the sale of alcohol in restaurants is still banned and bars, pubs and nightclubs must remain closed.

     

    Meanwhile, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the Certificate of Entry (COE) requirement for foreign tourists will be replaced with a new web based system called “Thailand Pass”.

     

    The system will make it easier for people wishing to travel to Thailand and will support the government’s “Ease of Travelling” policy.

     

    The new Thailand Pass system will replace the COE system by Nov 1, it was announced.

     

    However, the COE will still be used by those who enter Alternative Hospital Quarantine (AHQ) for those who arrive by land or sea.

     

    Further details are set to be announced following official approval from the Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA).

    Thai health authorities earlier this month launched the vaccination drive among adolescents aged 12-18 years old, with the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine being the only available vaccine receiving emergency use authorization for this age group.

    Increased rainfall is expected in Thailand during this period, with very heavy rains likely in some areas of the North and Northeast.

     

    The Meteorological Department reported that a strong southwest monsoon prevails over the Andaman Sea, the Southern Region, and the Gulf of Thailand while the tropical depression Lionrock covers the upper part of Laos. These conditions will result in increased rains over Thailand, with very heavy rains being likely in some areas of the North and Northeast. Isolated heavy rains are forecast for the Central Region, the Eastern Region, and the South’s west coast. People in risk areas are urged to beware of the heavy rainfall and rainwater accumulation that may cause overflows and flash floods.

     

    Strong wind is likely in the Andaman Sea and the upper Gulf of Thailand. Waves are 2-3 meters high in the Andaman Sea and the upper Gulf of Thailand, about 2 meters high in the lower Gulf, and more than 3 meters high in thundershowers. All ships are urged to proceed with caution and keep away from thundershowers. Small boats in the Andaman Sea and the upper Gulf of Thailand should keep ashore.

     

    The weather bureau reported that tropical storm Kompasu in the Pacific, to the northeastern part of the Philippines, is yet to have effects on Thailand’s weather.

     

    Meanwhile, the water levels in Thailand’s major rivers are expected to increase, except in the Northern Region. The National Water Command and relevant agencies are monitoring water levels and are laying down the management framework for the water situation in the Chi-Mun river basin. The peak amount of water mass in Chi River, currently flowing through Maha Sarakham, is expected to reach Ubon Ratchathani on 23 October. Some effects may be had on lowlands along the riverbanks in Ubon Ratchathani, which is host to three major rivers. Officials have pre-emptively installed water propelling machines to push some water out into the Mekong River ahead of the arrival of the water mass from Chi River.
