  1. Most likely cause is that she contracted the virus in the ASQ hotel. The ASQ will contain people from many high risk countries, and they are only transfered to a hospital if they test positive and develop symptoms. So there's a good chance of asymptomatic COVID cases in every ASQ. Then we have staff going from room to room, 'interns' going to the gym and common areas after a (possibly false) negative test, plus the possibility of illicit meetings. Most likely place to catch COVID in Thailand is probably an ASQ.

  3. How about having some sort of development controls to ensure unnecessary condos and commercial offices are not built in the first place? Daft suggestion, I know. Will never happen here.
  4. But that would result in all other sites having a huge font. Only TV has gone with a tiny font size by default
  5. Can hardly read it on my phone. The site went down for an 'update' and now the headings have a weird, tiny font, and the text in posts is too small.
  6. I had a vent pipe in my last house - projecting above the roof, but it's the only one I've ever seen here. The main reason for the vent is to prevent the water going down the drain creating suction and pulling out the water from the seal. As the OP mentions he's on a high floor, this may be the issue. If toilets are connected to the same downpipe, when they are flushed the descending water may suck out the waterseal. But you can normally here an intermittant gurgling sound from your basin if this is the issue? Solution is to close the plug when it's not in use, as ad
  7. That's minimal compared to UK - the Gold Standard in goverment actions impacting currency. 65 THB to 1 GBP when I arrived in Thailand .... now 40.
  8. The association with meat plants is because of the high noise environment causing people to shout and spread droplets. Add in cold, damp working conditions, shoulder to shoulder working on lines and immigrant labour living in dorms - and you have a perfect environment to spread a droplet-borne viral infection. Finding the virus on food packaging is a reflection of the sensitivity of PCR testing equipment and of little relevance in practice, unless you are trying to show that another country was responsible for your latest clusters.
  9. Let that be a warning to people who inhale cod boxes. Meanwhile, the rest of us can get on with our lives.
  10. Lies, damn lies and Johns Hopkins. They only collate and display reported data, and with huge differences in reporting criteria, testing rates and the behavior of the local people regarding seeking medical treatment, their figures are worthless. Johns Hopkins world data reports were set up as a self publicity stunt by a private university to highlight population growth, but nobody took any notice, so they switched to COVID. No real scientifiic research uses Johns Hopkins figures. Do we really think Africa is doing so well? Or that the figures for Indonesia
  11. 2 local cases? "If you think you are safe at Warp, you're wrong" ..... spoken in a deep Benedict Cumberbatch voice.
  12. IS are soooo last year. 2020 is all about COVID and BlackPink.
  13. Depends on the motivation (and religion) of the informer.
