Covid situation as of August 4th, 2021

As mentioned, despite lockdown policy implemented for the past several weeks, situation is getting worse in Thailand. Today, August 4th, we hit again highest new Covid cases in Thailand which is more than 20,000 cases a day.

This is because of highly contagious delta variant type and vaccination is not prevailed to all nations at this time. Now the government is cooperating with other countries to obtain vaccines including Pfizer and Moderna, mRNA type then receiving some of allocated amount. Vaccination is the key to fight with Covid, especially mRNA is considered more effective for delta variant to avoid severe symptom of Covid 19.

In my company also, we found several positive cases in office and production line areas. Next week, the management decided to conduct rapid antigen test for all employee so I would like to report the result here also.

Ok, that’s all for today. Let’s stay tough everyone! This situation might last more but will be ended finally so that we can go back to gym to be fit and fitter. See you!
