Hua Hin: Masks for all tourists! District chief and mayor react after victim of virus diagnosed at resort

Recommended Posts

The masks are useless and provide no protection. They are of benefit only to the population if worn by the infected and who are coughing, sneezing or otherwise  drooling.

As per the current health protocol protective device consists of an N95 respirator and eye protection.

Not just masks for the virus. Masks for the air. Hua Hin has joined the ranks of the most polluted cities in Thailand, with many days well over 50-100 PM 2.5, and often 125-200 AQI. The air there is horrrendously bad. 

 

This thing is going to hit Thailand hard, and it is going to hurt coming after 6 years of major sabotage to the tourism industry, on the part of the administration, a hapless PM, and a dumb as you can get army led administration and TAT.  

I agree, Hua Hin’s big problem is the air pollution from all the burning, the last few months we have been lucky if we had a few days below 100 often it is about 150 aqi which is extremely unhealthy

A humble relay from some eminent professors in Europe who declare that a facemask mainly prevents one from spreding the disease if a carrier.  Just a face mask, with no glasses, gloves, appropriate clothing is not fool proof agains this virus.

 

Furthermore, the virus is the most infectious when one is in the incubation stage i.e. with no apparent symptoms yet.

 

Maybe some of the eminent nobel price professors in the forum would contradict, but am plainly reporting what many EU media have reported, with absolutely no interest to hide the truth from the public. The ideal protection is the outfit shown below...

Yeah, all fine and dandy.

But have they got an N95 mask on the end of the hose which sends his air to him?

Stupid district chief. These masks not help. Need the N95 masks minimum. The virus is so small that these cheap once not help at all. Just same as for pollution. There also need N95

You did not understand that the only local wholesaler who sells these masks is part of his family;
it may even be his wife. :whistling:

I remember Hua Hin 15 years ago; it was a very quiet little town;
I went back there a few months ago;
one word: hell! :wacko:

it's also been said that one of the key ways to catch the virus is to touch nose or mouth after touching an infected surface

 

this is impossible to do this without removing a mask

 

so better than nothing.

Even if the Chinese stop coming, the various 'agencies' will issue proclamations of growth in the tourism sector this year.  That seems to be the way it works.

I think it's already been said that these surgical masks are useless as a protection.  However, tourists wearing them will help prevent an infected person from spreading it. Surgical masks are designed to prevent the spread of mouth borne diseases to others, not as a protection.

Yes I agree but that's a good thing as people don't always even know they're infected particularly in the earlier stages. Also possibly the flimsy masks can protect against infected spray from others. So better than nothing probably but whether non infected people really need to wear them is debatable.
