  1. I have heard of Covid-19, the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2, but what is C-19?
  2. What exactly does the 10 minute test of Emirates and a few other airlines prove?
  3. You used the wrong URL. The correct URL is www.thaichana.com, not thaichana.com This is Thailand and you must use Thailand 1.0. The Thailand 4.0 touted in the media is just vapourware. Anyway, what do you need from the Thaichana website? I understand that this site is for business owners to get the QR quote to display in the shop for customers to scan before entering the shop, or have I got this wrong?
  4. COVID-19: Immunity to coronaviruses may last just six months, says new study By Alice Tidey • last updated: 26/05/2020 - 16:59 Immunity to reinfection from human coronaviruses may last only six months, according to a study from the University of Amsterdam. It casts doubt over the practicality of introducing "immunity passports", which some governments want to issue to COVID-19 survivors on the assumption they can't be reinfected and are free to help the economy get back on its feet. The study monitored 10 men over 35 years to determine antibody levels following infection for any of the four seasonal human coronaviruses.

  5. What is a ferang? How is it written in Thai?
  6. The question, which you quoted, was "Sydney Melbourne to Bangkok ???" The topic title is "Aussies expats who plans to return to Thailand" As you say that you were not answering the question you quoted in your post, whose and what question were you answering? A link to the corresponding post would be helpful.
  7. Setting aside the comparison of the number of deaths due to the common flu with the number due to Covid-19, what can be said about the argument that restrictions and requirements were imposed specifically for the Covid-19 pandemic in order to avoid an overload or total collapse of a country's health care system?
  8. From the news article in my previous post: Could the health services have coped better and would consequently the death rate in Sweden have been lower than it has actually been if Sweden had been on the type of lockdown that other European countries enforced?
  9. Just 7.3% of Stockholm had Covid-19 antibodies by end of April, study shows Official findings add to concerns about Sweden’s laissez-faire strategy towards the pandemic @jonhenley Thu 21 May 2020 18.51 BST First published on Thu 21 May 2020 14.53 BST Just 7.3% of Stockholm’s inhabitants had developed Covid-19 antibodies by the end of April, according to a study, raising concerns that the country’s light-touch approach to the coronavirus may not be helping it build up broad immunity. The research by Sweden’s public health agency comes as Finland warned it would be risky to welcome Swedish tourists after figures suggested the country’s death rate per capita was the highest in Europe over the seven days to 19 May. Sweden’s state epidemiologist, Anders Tegnell, said the antibodies figure was “a bit lower than we’d thought”, but added that it reflected the situation some weeks ago and he believed that by now “a little more than 20%” of the capital’s population had probably contracted the virus.

  10. Does this mean that 1. you did not book a flight back as quickly as possible when the UK government urgently asked you to do so because commercial flights might soon be unavailable, and 2. later, you failed to book a seat on one of the emergency repatriation flights when the UK offered them and informed you that you would be left to fend on your own if you chose to stay behind in Thailand?
