Ministry of Public Health opens 2 large clusters, Omikron super spreader Prof. Muang Krung Khong, another 52 people found the infection in the air conditioner!

On December 29, at the Ministry of Public Health (MOPH), Dr. Opas Karkawinpong Director-General of the Department of Disease Control Statement on the situation of COVID-19 Omicron species Which is a cluster in Thailand that the number of omikron cases found in the country, two-thirds are travelers from abroad, the other part is a contact. Today, I will bring 2 clusters that people are interested in, namely, Kalasin cluster, infected in 11 districts, total 248 cases, which are super spreaders, spread to Udon Thani, Mahasarakham, Roi Et, Nong Bua Lamphu, Sakon Nakhon, Lamphun, Ubon Ratchathani, Phitsanulok, Lampang. and Phetchabun

“In this case, the patient traveled from abroad. and travel to entertainment venues in Kalasin Province, which has traveled to many places But the problem point in the shop, such as Bar K (fictitious name), because the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration (BDC) has not yet allowed the pub, bar, and karaoke to be opened, so the restaurant has been converted to a restaurant. But the management of the ventilation system remains the same, so the risk is greatly reduced,” said Dr. Opas.

Dr Opas said, for example, a shop where infected people traveled to Bar S had no cases of infection at all, but Bar K was the distribution point for most of the Northeast (Isan) and some northern provinces. The difference between these two restaurants is that Bar S has 10 tables serving up to 40 customers and 9 employees. On the day that infected people travel, only 10 percent of customers use the service for only 3 hours, unlike Bar K, which has 15 tables. Serving up to 80 customers, but there were additional tables, 9 staff members, 6 musicians, of which about 90 percent of the customers were there and stayed for a long time. because there is music And what followed was drinking alcohol.

“While the Bar S environment organizes personal equipment There are no promotional activities and alcohol is allowed until 11 PM, and there is no music performance that day. Bar K has promotional activities. There were drinks, cheering for guests, cheering for customers, sitting and drinking until midnight. live music The longer people stay in the store, the greater the risk. Including the ventilation system is not good as well Another thing is that every Bar S employee has vaccinations and ATK checks every week, directed by the owner. which is a good example. Bar K vaccinates everyone. But there is no ATK test and no screening through Thai save Thai and 90% of customers are considered to have no DMHTT measure. The accommodation is not well ventilated. And when I’m sick, I don’t stop working. This is a preliminary investigation. may be expected But in principle, the main idea is that there are environmental risks, employees, and customers, who want to leave as a new year’s example. that if going to a shop that doesn’t look safe, don’t stay It’s better to go to a safer shop,” said Dr. Opas.

Director-General of the Department of Disease Control went on to say that Another cluster of university students in Bangkok, on December 24, 2021, found 52 cases of coronavirus, a university student. Has a history of eating and drinking together in a pub-like restaurant A (fictitious name) in Bangkok between 8-14 December last Similar to the cluster above, the air-conditioned room is poorly ventilated. which after the incident, the officers collected the specimens Found bacteria in the air conditioner Show that is another point that is important.

“It was found that many shops did not implement Covid-19 free setting measures. It was quite crowded. bad ventilation system Therefore, we have to give an example as a reminder for everyone to be careful,” said Dr. Opas.
