  1. Don't get too excited. I have no information about what Thailand will do. I am in Indonesia wanting to get back to Thailand and on an automatic extension simular to what Thailand did. There has been a lot of talk about what will happen next. Here is an artical from Jakarta about what another Asian country decided to do. Not good news. https://www.thejakartapost.com/travel/2020/07/12/emergency-stay-permits-to-no-longer-be-issued-for-foreigners-as-indonesia-enters-new-normal.html Basically 30 days to renew if you are eligible under the old rules or get out within that time frame. This is not Thailand, I know but thought it might be of interest to some that say a country wouldn't make everyone leave quickly.
  2. They could have my 100,000 baht a month as well as many other "tourist" if they would let the people with condos, and long stay visas just return to Thailand. Most of us will do the testing and quarantine out of our own pocket. It is not the 40,000000 tourist from before but it is a start.
  3. About 6 years ago "National Geographic" published a good article on this subject. The origin has been debated for decades. Have a read, most likely it didn't start in the US. The researcher was Canadian and it was before this pandemic so no bias there but guess where it might have come from. https://www.nationalgeographic.com/news/2014/1/140123-spanish-flu-1918-china-origins-pandemic-science-health/
  4. Wow what a thread. In terms of tourist remember Thailand competes with other nations. Bali just announced foreign tourism starting again in September. https://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2020/07/06/bali-to-welcome-international-tourists-in-september.html And the Philippines is also relaxing travel restrictions. https://www.thenational.ae/lifestyle/travel/manila-s-terminal-3-to-reopen-on-july-8-to-handle-increase-in-international-flights-1.1044815 And in both countries covid cases are rising still. It looks like they are saying that the disease will have to be lived with because the economic impact is too great.
