  1. You can't separate countries with regard to a world wide pandemic, it's all connected, it's all "on topic". Quite a short sighted statement in your last sentence to make after an editorializing rambling rant containing mostly speculation and unproven assertions. There is a reason that this is the job of epidemiologists and not self styled "expert" commenters. Comparisons are quite relevant, it is the only means by which to measure this. It's all new, never been seen or dealt with before. I'm sure Thailand is doing the best it can, and continues to improve. I'm sure they have been looking very
  2. Common misuse of the word "theory". An idea, speculation, a proposition, a proposal, is a hypothesis. A theory is an idea and hypothesis that has been consistently tested and proven true.

  5. Are you somehow proud of your callousness? Are you an American? If not, I hereby grant you honorary American status. Now run and vote for Trump
  6. I can tell you from experience just being stranded here for an extra month as well as in Cambodia that flight cancellations in the early days were an unstoppable plague. I must have had at least a half dozen flights out booked and then cancelled abruptly just before they were scheduled to depart. I had to search flights every day and finally booked a one way that came up which left the very next day. That was to the US. For other countries it was even more difficult, and I seem to remember very few flights to Australia at that point
