COVID-19 News: SARS-CoV-2 infections in Thailand have witnessed a concerning surge, as health authorities report over 536 new infections and three deaths in the last week alone. The Department of Disease Control (DDC) in Thailand revealed a sudden spike in weekly cases, encompassing the period from November 26 to December 2. According to the report, there were 88 cases of pneumonia among COVID-19 patients, prompting heightened concern from health officials.

The statistics for the entire year depict a grim picture, with the total number of COVID-19 cases reaching 36,204 and a cumulative death toll of 826. Of particular concern is the fact that 88 patients have been diagnosed with pneumonia, and 40 individuals required respiratory support. The DDC emphasizes that the situation is concerning, with an average of 76 hospital admissions and one death per day during the specified week.
 
In response to this alarming trend, the DDC is urgently urging the public to strictly adhere to respiratory infection prevention measures. These measures include the mandatory wearing of face masks in crowded places and close contact, especially within group 608, which comprises unvaccinated children, the elderly and those with existing comorbidities. The department underscores the importance of frequent hand washing and recommends self-testing for the virus using Antigen Test Kits (ATK), particularly for individuals within group 608. If the ATK result is positive, immediate medical attention is advised.
 
Monitoring the situation closely, the DDC echoes the concerns raised by the Ministry of Public Health regarding the steady increase in new infections and hospital admissions. The department is intensifying its efforts to curb the spread of the virus and is calling for active cooperation from the public to adhere to preventive measures and prioritize vaccination against coronavirus.
 
Despite the alarming numbers, the DDC maintains optimism, citing the readiness of the country's health infrastructure to manage the situation effectively. The department is working tirelessly to bring the situation under control, relying heavily on public cooperation in following recommended preventive measures and actively participating in the vaccination drive.
 
There are literally no local COVID-19 News coverages about the current situation in Thailand and no private hospitals are reporting anything out of the extraordinary.
 
There has been some increase in other respiratory infections as well such as RSV infections and also flu infections reported by some private hospitals in the country but it has not been over stressing any healthcare facilities as of yet.
 
However, in many other neighboring countries and geolocations elsewhere including China, there have been alarming reports of the spread of a mysterious white lung pneumonia outbreak that is leading to exponential increases in hospitalizations.

As of yet, Thailand is fortunately not witnessing such a surge of this mysterious white lung pneumonia although many are complaining of fevers, persistent coughs, sore throats, headaches, back pain, body pain and general fatigue. Some are attributing the seasonal change to these observed ailments as Thailand enters a slightly cooler season.
