Of course. No Thai would ever infect another Thai.

 

I cannot even begin to describe how disgusting I find this official xenophobic finger-pointing at "foreigners". 

 

I recall when AIDS started to be an issue that the talk was the same and government ministers were mooting ideas for compulsory HIV negative certificates for foreigners to enter the country. Then out of the blue one of the gulf states banned Thai workers completely due to the high prevalence of HIV in the Kingdom.  It suddenly struck home that it had become a Thai problem and we heard very more about the idea for the HIV negative certificates for foreigners.

This is your opinion.  No evidence that Thailand will get outbreaks as China and Italy did/have

There is evidence that Thailand will get outbreaks as every other country. The evidence are the other countries!

 

There is unfortunately no evidence it won't happen. Don't get me wrong  I wish there was, but all the evidence points to an upcoming problem in Thailand.

It does seem like the time to isolate now. And you would think that 50 -60 new cases in one day would raise the flag to phase 3.

I was isolating myself in Thailand from around mid January, before I left for home in February for the first time in a decade

With 50-60 new confirmed "official" cases daily, you can darned well bet that they're not going to end up catching up with and identifying each and every one of the various other people that those 50 to 60 a day had come into contact with....before getting sick enough to seek treatment.

 

Exactly, possibly one or two carriers at the boxing stadium  have infected many. Those who contracted it mixing in the stadium went on to other locations, bars, pubs, restaurants and eventually back home.

Then infected even more people who then in turn have gone on to spread it further. 

If there was ever a need to close down as many places as possible this is the proof!

So maybe it wasn’t such a good idea to keep land border crossings and flights landing from China in January and February?

Testing is still limited to select hospitals. COV-19 has been here a long time and has infected many more than anyone realizes. Once a faster, cheaper test arrives we will realize how many actually have it and the numbers game will start to look a lot different.

THis week 50, next week 200, and the following week it will overwhelm the health system. The only solution is complete travel ban (and lock down except essential services) as India has done and now they are seeing number trickling instead of exploding.

Your right about the finger pointing , but don't forget about the asians being attacked in UK and other places in europe , so the finger pointing is going on everywhere . Im more worried about government people finger pointing like ANUTIN . the normal people fingerpointing are to dumb to wipe their own ass ,but people in government jobs fingerpointing are just dangerous because the people to dumb to wipe their own <deleted> intend to believe such kwaks .

The fear mongers on here have been saying this since early February. 6 weeks later and no outbreak.  The outbreak has stopped in China...why would it start now in Thailand?

And if that ever happens, it must be the dirty Isaanites. And should it happen in Bangkok, it can't be anything but the pureblood Thais. People having the noble CCP Sino gene are of course immune.

 

Good old sakdina - China style.

Studies in Italy and Iceland suggest that 50% of infected people show no symptoms whatsoever. These people are carriers without even knowing it. The only way to stop the spread is total lock-down like they did in China or testing everyone including all people without symptoms.
