  1. A doctor at a hospital in Wuhan spoke to the BBC The virus is now spreading at an alarming rate. The hospitals have been flooding with thousands of patients, who wait hours to see a doctor - you can imagine their panic. Normally Wuhan is a great place to live and we are proud of our work - specialists here have developed a guide for coronavirus diagnosis and treatment. But I am scared because this is a new virus and the figures are worrying. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-51217455
  2. Once you take in the hidden costs of all the masks,air purifiers , shut downs , lost tourism et al it is a no brainer on the side of action.
  3. At some point panic will set in and all hell will let loose. The internet is a great device for amplifying paranoia exponentially. If the virus don't gets you then the panic buying and hysteria may well do so. So far only the ill and the very old need to be worried so that is most TVF users safe and sound. But since most don't go out and sit hunched over their computers my advice would be.... get masks plenty of them get hand gel lots of it stock up with loads of bottled water , tinned goods , crackers and the like. when you go out wear the mask and only make essential trips avoid crowded places particularly those frequented by Chinese on return scrub up well paying particular attention to your hands and shower before returning to the internet for updates. watch the movie Contagion - which is wholly based on scientific evidence.
  4. Crikey this sounds bad. They say the first rule of a crisis is don't panic and the second rule is if you must panic first. Maybe time to stock up just in case whilst you can........ https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jan/23/coronavirus-panic-and-anger-in-wuhan-as-china-orders-city-into-lockdown
  5. Those costs are being transferred elsewhere though. That would be my 8500 baht air purifier I have just forked out for. And the 50,000 baht I won't be spending as I go back to the UK a month early. etc etc. And of course the intangible cost of a quality of life one can have in Thailand that is forever compromised if the air goes to pot.
  6. This has been discussed before. https://forum.thaivisa.com/topic/1127782-sugar-cane-machine-harvester-versus-burning-the-sugar-cane/ https://forum.thaivisa.com/topic/1135540-ban-of-sugar-cane-burning-enforced-this-year-really/#comments
  7. That would mean the 1750 generals (UK 85) losing their chauffeurs , cooks , cleaners , gardeners , bottle washers , medal polishers and doing something useful for a change. We can but hope common sense will prevail. Responding to criticism that the army is top-heavy, General Sir Nick Carter said that the total number of starred officers — brigadiers and generals — had been reduced by nearly 40 per cent, from 141 to 85, during the past five years.Dec 29, 2017
  8. I think one thing that nearly everyone Thai and farang can agree on now is..... SORT OUT THE AGRO-INDUSTRY AIR POLLUTION CRISIS ...NOW
  9. Good we now have a real life walking , talking scapegoat now let him be scaped. Good he put his hand up and confessed.
  10. Ok then easy answer jail them all - I think Thailand can cope with having less processed sugar. And they have stolen Thailand's 'clean air' so they are stealing from the people and big.
  11. If he is clever enough to escape from prison he is no doubt clever enough to use a compatriot to muddy the waters as to his actual whereabouts. Interpol should find it easy to corroborate this with Thai immigration records.
  12. You have very good English, your language skills and that of many non-English folk puts many of our native speakers to shame.
  13. Thankfully the medical profession doesn't work like that. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hippocratic_Oath
  14. I imagine the taxi mafia are dusting off their baseball bats.
