Public health officials in Songkhla announced on Sunday that an 86-year-old woman was the first Covid-19 patient in Thailand who died of the Omicron variant.
The woman, said the provincial public health office, was a Hat-Yai native and bedridden Alzheimer’s patient. It is believed that she got the variant from her grandson who tested positive after coming back from Phuket.
The deceased’s timeline is as follows:

January 7: She develops high fever, cough and breathing problems, and is admitted to Hat Yai Hospital’s ICU.
January 12: Patient succumbs at 9.20am. Test results show she had Omicron.
In a report from The Nation, the woman had apparently received two Pfizer vaccines.
