Thailand Reports First 15 Local Cases Of India-Dominant Covid Variant

Bangkok:  (HRNW) Thailand has detected its first 15 domestically transmitted cases of the highly infectious COVID-19 India-dominant variant, authorities said on Friday, a discovery that could complicate efforts to address its most deadly outbreak so far.
The 15 cases included 12 construction workers at their camp in northern Bangkok, where about 1,100 of the 1,667 workers there tested positive for COVID-19.

Clusters have been detected in several of the 409 such camps around the capital, where city authorities say 62,169 workers live, about half of those migrant labour. It has also found big clusters in several of its prisons this month.

Thailand is fighting its most severe outbreak yet, with cases quadrupling and deaths increasing seven-fold since the start of April.
