Sumat Prakan Has Become A New Thai Hotspot

As of March 3rd, 2021, the Department of Disease Control (DDC) in Thailand announced that Samut Prakan, a Thai province, has become a flashpoint again because some migrants have been found with the pandemic.
According to Opas Karnkawinpong, the director-general of DDC, 17 workers were diagnosed with the pandemic and then 584 people were placed under close supervision.
A 29-year-old worker from Myanmar is believed to have been the most recent patient zero at Samut Prakan. When she tested positive for the pandemic, the DDC decided to test migrant workers at camps on Sukhumvit 106. The road starts in Bangkok and goes to Cambodia. The road is one of the longest in Thailand. After testing, an additional 16 workers were infected. There were 10 Cambodians, 4 Thais, and two Myanmar people.
The COVID-10 Situation Administration (CCSA) reports that 45 infections were recorded in hospitals on Sunday and 26 were found by mass testing. Most of the infected area is in Samut Sakan, with 81 infected.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, there have been 27,594 cases. The total deaths has been 90. 53,842 have been vaccinated. The total Thai population is about 70 million.
Recently, the focus of the CCSA has been to stop the spread of an outbreak that started in Bang Khae. Cases from this outbreak have been detected in Songkhkla and Si Sa Ket.
The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) reports 384 people have been infected with COVID-19 in the Bang Khae cluster, including those who visited markets. An additional 16 people were infected after visiting markets in Bang Khae.
Vaccinated from the Bang Khae cluster are approximately 2,600 people.
BMA has set up a second field hospital close to Rajpipattana Hospital in the district of Thawi Wattana. The BAM opened its first field hospital last January near Bang Khunthian Hospital, containing 600 beds.

About 1,200 respondents were surveyed by Suan Dusit Rajabhat University recently regarding the impact of the pandemic on their savings.
Some 47$ of their respondents’ savings have gone down, while about 22% think that their credit card debt is very deep.
Around 43% of respondents had to borrow money from family members. 33% of respondents had to borrow money from a bank while 28% had to borrow money from friends and colleagues. This is according to a Suan Dusit Poll.
