After Songkran COVID-19 cases are likely to increase.

COVID-The number of 19 infections is anticipated to rise two weeks after the Songkran event, but the situation will remain under control because hospitals have the space to accommodate the additional patients, according to Associate Professor Dr. Nitipat Jiarakul, the director of the Thoracic Society of Thailand.

He observed that, although most of the COVID-19 patients had mild symptoms, the number of patients admitted for treatment at major hospitals during the pre-Songkran period had increased from March.

In a recent Instagram post, actor Nattawut Skidjai identified himself as one among the sick and advised Songkran revelers to take precautions and wear face masks. Nattawut Skidjai was among the patients.

The leader of the Thai Civilized Party, Mongkolkit Suksintharanon, stated in a Facebook post that he had contracted COVID-19 for the first time and that both his blood pressure and blood oxygen levels were within normal range. However, he was described as having a slight hoarseness. He continued by saying that because to his illness, he was unable to socialize during the Songkran holiday.

Songkran revelers do not need to continue working from home after the holiday, but Dr. Nitipat did warn those who live with old people and those who are at high risk to keep an eye on their health for COVID-19 symptoms.
