PATTAYA:--Lions and dragons will dance from morning to night when Pattaya celebrates Chinese New Year on Saturday, January 25. Around town, people will pay respect to ancestors at temples and individual homes, and many venues will hold celebrations for visitors. Below is a short list of city-sponsored events.

 

Chinese New Year celebrations will be held at three spots across the Pattaya area Jan. 25, featuring music, dance and games.

 

Events are planned for Walking Street, Lan Po Public Park in Naklua and Central Festival Pattaya Beach.

 

Festivities begin at 7 a.m. with four hours worship ceremonies in three locations: city hall, the Pattaya viewpoint, and Sawang Boriboon Thammasathan Foundation. At each spot there also will be lion and dragon dances.

Still going through with the planned celebrations in Pattaya?  Packing a bunch of people in close quarters ... Huh?  Cases of infections have been multiplying daily {now at 830} with deaths now at 26.  Among the Pattaya attendees will be loads of visitors from China.  I’m a bit befuddled.  Why?  The Chinese government has been canceling Lunar New Year celebrations.  Would it make sense to follow suit?  

Common sense is not part of Thai vocabulary.

Not if you wish the Event to have dual purpose.

It will also be a " Farewell for now " event for the Chinese Tourist in Thailand, with over 20 Cities now in lockdown in China

Corona virus? Air pollution? Traffic madness? Ladyboys robbers on the rampage? But nothing of this beats that horrific noisy garbage Chinese New year.

 13 actually and all in Hubei province. All they have done is widened the quarantine area. They are all in close proximity. There are a lot of people live in China. Most of whom are nowhere near Hubei.

All cinemas are closed because it's Chinese New Year. I smell a British tabloid sensational headline.

 

99.9% of everything is closed.

The USA alone loses about 100 people a day during a typical flu year.  With 5x the population, that means China probably loses 500 people A DAY during a normal flu year.  Deaths at 26?  That's about an hour's worth on a normal flu year.

 

China's got political reasons to look tough after their mis-handling of the SARs epidemic (which still killed a lot less than the normal flu that year).

 

If you're worried, stay home.   Problem solved.  That's the beauty of living in a free society.  We get to choose. 

 

Edit:  BTW, the reason I call out the USA is because that's the easiest place for me to look up CDC flu data...  Not to hold it up as any kind of beacon for health care excellence.
