Thailand found 144 domestic infections among 157 new Covid-19 Coronavirus cases with one additional death in the past 24 hours, CCSA spokesperson Taweesin Visanuyothin announced this morning, February 10th.
The 80th national death was a 65-year-old Thai woman with underlying diseases of laryngeal cancer, chronic kidney failure, and high blood fat. She was reportedly in close contact with five family members who were involved in a major shrimp market cluster in Samut Sakhon.
The patient sought the Covid-19 test after having a cold when receiving kidney treatment at a local hospital on December 29th, 2020. Her result proved positive for the virus on January 1st, 2021 and she was taken to a hospital in Bangkok for isolation and Covid-19 treatment.
Her condition became worse as she was reportedly suffering from several infections during the treatment. Her heart rate became too slow as well as her blood pressure was drastically low. She was pronounced dead in the early hours of February 9th.
Regarding the domestic cases, 106 out of 144 infections were discovered in Samut Sakhon with 104 and Samut Songkram with 2 during a proactive approach in major factories and local communities, particularly in migrant worker dormitories. Most of them are Burmese workers. All of the patients are now at provincial state quarantine and field hospitals under the supervision of public health authorities.
The other 38 cases were hospital cases that were found in Samut Sakhon with 28, Bangkok with 8, Maha Sarakam with 1, and Samut Songkram with 1. All of them are now isolated at local hospitals for treatment.
