  1. I read the limitations and it says: "EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS We will not pay for any Accidental Death, Dismemberment or Paralysis loss or Injury that is caused by, or results from: /.../ 5. disease or bacterial infection except for any bacterial infection resulting from an accidental external cut or wound or accidental ingestion of contaminated food." Are you sure this insurance would cover the costs of a hospital stay caused by contracting Covid19 "the normal way"? Maybe it's the usual story: tourists and expats must have an insurance policy, but it will never pay out.
  2. I’m resisting an urge to go buy a heavily discounted Suzuki GSX 250 R which has been sitting at a local dealership for a loooong time. Or a Ninja 400. In Thailand: a Honda CB150R, obviously not worth the price tag though.
  3. You’ve hit the nail on the head: valid travel insurance with covid19 cover -> unobtainium
  4. Can any country afford to wait out the virus, in anticipation of a vaccine that may or may not be effective? I don’t think so. So they have to open up. Should they open up quickly or slowly and what kind of safeguards are they contemplating? They’re talking about quarantines before flying and after arriving. That’s not going to work for tourists. They’re talking about only sending tourists for long stays on Koh Phangan and Koh Samui, which is interesting since there are no actual hospitals there as far as I know. They’re talking about demanding some kind of document stating the tourist is free of Covid19. These must be no more than two days old. In my country it would not be possible to find a doctor to sign such a document, since they know the results are only valid at the time of testing. Demanding these types of documents is basically just an invitation for scams. And then I come to the final obstacle: obtaining insurance against a long stay in a Thai ICU for Covid19. That won’t be easy for tourists. I’ve had no luck finding anything appropriate.
