Thailand’s Post Covid Symptoms to Follow After the World Cup
Thailand’s post-Covid outbreaks are set to be much worse this year, and the World Health Organization said Friday that there would be “catastrophic” health consequences.
The WHO said in a statement that “the incidence of post-coital fever, post-ovulatory symptoms, and post-opcovid syndrome, with severe complications, is projected to rise by up to 2-3% this year in Thailand and by up 1.8% in 2017 in Cambodia.”
It’s the second consecutive year that Thailand has seen a rise in its post-covids outbreak, following a 7% increase in 2017.
The World Health organization is urging governments and other countries to implement a plan that includes vaccinating all pregnant women, pregnant women and children who have not yet been vaccinated against CoV-19, which causes fever, headache, rash, muscle pain, muscle weakness, and kidney failure.
“The WHO recommends that the government implement a comprehensive vaccine schedule, including an additional 4 doses of CoV vaccine for every adult and 5 doses for every child,” the WHO said.
“The WHO also encourages the use of rapid diagnostic tests for CoV infections.”
The WHO warned that “urgent measures” will be taken in the event of a surge in the number of post coital fever cases in Thailand.
It said the country has had no new CoV cases reported since the start of the pandemic.
The government also has to prepare for the possibility of a pandemic, including the possibility that “co-infected and co-infection-negative persons are allowed to travel and leave Thailand without being identified,” the agency said.
“Health workers should ensure that the number and frequency of vaccination campaigns is monitored,” the statement said.
There have been no new cases of CoH3V/CoV-2 in Thailand since May 2016, and there were no new co-contagious cases reported between October 2017 and March 2018.
