Thai Health Official Thinks COVID-19 Will Become Endemic

Kiatiphum Wongrajit, public health permanent secretary, predicted that due to the relaxation of regulations for businesses and activities, it is unlikely that the number of Covid-19 infections would fall below 10,000 and that the disease would become endemic.
Dr. Kiatiphum said that the rate of daily Coronavirus infections would gradually decrease but likely stay around 10,000 and will not reach zero.
In places like Bangkok and Phuket, where people do not exhibit severe symptoms and people are well vaccinated, such as Covid-19 disease, may soon become endemic.
The hospital bed shortage problem has gradually improved, according to Dr. Kiatiphum. However, people should not be careless and should wear face masks, regularly wash their hands and observe social distancing, he added.
