strong rumours that Thailand is about to do something similar and I will say it again - is there something they are not telling because the constant message is all under control and only ** infections of which ** are now cured - pretty much the same message for 12 weeks with little change 

It’s not rumour - bars will be closed in Thailand from tomorrow. The papers have already gone out in Bangkok

The govt meeting for these suggestions is tomorrow, so unless you have written proof, then your post is false news at this time.

Morons. So many live in a cocooned lackadaisical bubble thinking nothing can go wrong. People are so reckless now and ambivalent to consequences. I'm mean, for example, how do you end up falling off a cliff whilst trying to take a photo of yourself?

Back a bit, back a bit, aaaaargh!

In Austria the Tobacconist also sells phone top ups, newspapers, tickets for public transport, lottery tickets. May be same in France.

Btw, in Austria shops but for food, banks, petropl stations, are closed. Certain areas are under quarantine, tourists have to leave, skiing season was cut short.

The name used is " bureau de tabac "; as said above, in France, they sell different things as in Austria , not only tobacco, but I wouldn't assimilate them to " seven/eleven", it's not a small supermarket

I was thinking that only Thai could not understand the real problem with this virus ? but it seems that foreigners also need to learn...

 

This virus is not a problem for 90% people, but for 10% it can lead to death.

 

The problem is not to treat the symptoms as we just need respiratory help, the problem is that in a country like Thailand 200000 people could need some respiratory help when only 10000+ machines are available in hospitals...

 

So the only problem is that if too many people will need ICU at the same time, hospitals cannot treat them because not enough beds.

 

Nothing else to think about or understand.

Exactly, It's a demand/capacity management issue which is similar to the one service companies such as airlines usually experience. Except that one cannot increase prices at peak time to divert demand.

The virus is unstoppable. The objective of the current decisions is flatten the demand curve in order to reduce the gap with the current health system capacity.

What a ridiculous comment.

no need to be a doctor to know that most countries have the same problem (except chitna).

All EU country could have 200000+ people to put on beds but do not have more than 10000+ beds...

But it's clear that most people do not even understand the only real problem with this virus, you are a great example.

go do some research on the pandemic of 1918 vers covid 19 and report back here

 

between 50-100 million people died with an estimated mortality rate of 1%

 

but hey what's 100 million people
