The PPHO daily report for yesterday (July 1) marked four new COVID infections on the island, bringing the total number of people infected in Phuket since Apr 3 to 739.

The report yesterday followed the PPHO reporting seven new cases for Wednesday (June 30).

No deaths were reported for the two days.

Of note, a provincial order has instituted a Phuket Sandbox ‘contingency plan’, in case COVID infections start spiralling upward after the reopening of the province to foreign visitors yesterday (July 1). Among the key criteria for “reviewing” the Sandbox policy, which include cancelling the project altogether, is if there are more than 90 infections across the island within seven days.

As such, Phuket has recorded in total 23 new infections over the past seven days, as follows:

  • July 1 - 4 new cases, total 739
  • June 30 - 7 new cases, total 735
  • June 29 - 5 new cases, total 728
  • June 28 - 3 new cases, total 723
  • June 27 - 0 new cases, total 720
  • June 26 - 1 new case, total 720
  • June 25 - 3 new cases, 1 death, total 719

According to the PPHO daily report for yesterday (July 1), the 739 cases do not include six people infected in other provinces and two people infected abroad.

Of the cases recognised since Apr 3, 693 have been released from hospital care while 47 patients remain under medical care and supervision.

The PPHO report for yesterday included an updated map showing the locations of infections on Phuket, as follows:

  • Wichit -  87 infections
  • Phuket Town - 81
  • Patong - 77
  • Rassada - 68
  • Kathu - 57
  • Chalong - 51

I could swear the SHA-it Box scheme was going to be subject to less than 10 infections  a day. Thailand is now unable to provide  for it people as corruption has completely decimated the tax system.

with Delta variant spreading twice faster than any variant before , within 2 weeks, government would have to close the scheme, there wont be any life damage due to the vaccination lowering severe effects of the virus, so do we have to close for some basic flu symptoms ?
