Phuket Covid-19: 1 Phuket Prison death, 1 Sandbox infection
  • follow us in feedly

Phuket saw one new death and one new Covid-19 infection from an international traveller who entered the island as part of the Phuket Sandbox programme as daily numbers hold steady and hospital bed occupancy continues to worsen.

The one death was of an inmate at Phuket Prison, the second death that the prison has seen after a Covid-19 outbreak with 199 infections identified September 4. Yesterday’s death was a 24 year old Thai man with no information on his health or vaccination status. One of the previously reported deaths 2 days ago, that of a 38 year old man with underlying health conditions, has now been confirmed as another Phuket Prison inmate.

Phuket added just 3 new hospital beds yesterday, but with 11 new hospitalisations, there are now only 230 remaining beds, the lowest it’s been since the start of the third wave of Covid-19.

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 5 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.
