Relatives of the deceased said that she went to the doctor on January 12th with breathing difficulty. She went back home to her condo and died shortly after. Forensics teams and an autopsy revealed that COVID19 was not a cause of death and that narcotics were found in her system.

My take: When this is all said and done, it would not surprise me if fentanyl is involved in these overdose deaths. I’ve wrote extensively about the fentanyl issue in South East Asia in a report I put out last month.
Fentanyl is now in the region and even if fentanyl is not involved in these deaths, it’s only a matter of time before the crushing reality of the stuff hits the streets and villages of Thailand and South East Asia.
