Phuket Covid-19: 1 new death, hospital occupancy rates fell
  • follow us in feedly

With over 200 people being released from Covid-19 medical care in Phuket and 76 hospital beds freed up, the hospital occupancy rates fell to just over 82%, down from a peak around 90%. Today saw 239 new infections, a slight drop from yesterday, and one new death.

The death was of a 47 year old man who smoked. He had received 2 Sinovac vaccines and later tested positive using an antigen test kit, though it was not made clear if he later confirmed the infection with an RT-PCR test and was included in Covid-19 infection statistics.

Authorities have begun to crack down on bars, especially in Patong, saying they must curb sites that can spread Covid-19.

The death toll stood at 20 as this month began, and has now reached 61, meaning that there have been twice as many deaths this month as the combined total from April to the end of August.

Breakdowns of Phuket data from the Phuket Provincial Public Health Office report late last night, all collected since the start of the third wave of Covid-19 on April 3, are included below by the numbers.

ANTIGEN TEST KITS

Today 35 people tested positive in Phuket for Covid-19 using an antigen test kit.

People test with ATKs when they are at risk, but the results are not considered 100% conclusive. If someone tests positive, they will undergo an RT-PCR test to confirm the result. The case will only be added to the official numbers after that RT-PCR test is returned positive. Those in Phuket with a positive result from an ATK are moved to a Covid-19 Care Centre for safety as they await the results of an RT-PCR test.
