Yesterday around the world, 3,343,710 people were infected, with 9,729 more deaths, a total of 362,701,881 people with 5,644,172 deaths.

The top five with the most infections were France, USA, India, Brazil and Germany.

…Compared to each continent

current situation Number of new infections each day Europe’s highest followed by Asia, North America and South America respectively.

But North America has the highest ratio of deaths to new infections. by 3 times more than Europe and Asia

…Omicron BA.2 in Denmark

Not doing well because BA.2 is spread across many cities. and increasing rapidly consistent with data from other countries This indicates that BA.2 is likely to spread more quickly than traditional Omicron BA.1 (as shown in Figures 1 and 2 from the Pandemic Prevention Institute).

must closely monitor the research that violence, vaccine resistance And will BA.2’s reinfection performance be different from BA.1?

…analysis of Omicron’s past situation in America

Compared to the previous wave It was found that America was heavily attacked by Omicron, causing the number of infections higher than every wave of the past.

especially during childhood We have seen information previously that there is an infection. and getting sick a lot, even though Omicron has passed the peak But at this age in many states, it continues to soar higher.

…for Thai people

See the nature of the epidemic around the world. I have to admit that Asia started the epidemic later than other continents. and is in an uptrend Haven’t peaked yet and posted like other continents. with the current environment with the influx of tourists and people who travel from abroad continuously There is a chance that different types of virus which has that will escape As seen recently, it is BA.2.

traditional interpretation both in terms of the time of the outbreak And the policy environment at this point is probably not our peak.

Strict self-defense, routine, is a must. Always wear a mask. Two layers. The inner layer is a mask. The outer layer is a cloth mask. Meet fewer people as needed. Spend a short time at a distance.

avoid eating and drinking together not sharing food

Always prepared, always prepared essential equipment Yuk home medicine Including a room and an ATK test kit in case family members are sick so they can immediately grab a prepared map and use it.

Daily life in the future from now on. Wear a mask. Reduce congestion. Keep distance. and avoid risky behavior It is something that should be done in order to maintain health along with making a living.

…Love yourself very much. Always be aware of Long COVID because covid is not a common cold…”
