Emergency decree for Bangkok - will it happen?

Recommended Posts

In a English edition of a Thai newspaper there was an article, it could be possible that Bangkok (and possibly other cities) could be under martial law controlled by the military with strict rules to go outside.

 

How likely is that going to happen? 

Number of new cases in the last days don't look very good...

I hope they have the good sense to do just that, instead of hoping for the best. The problem with introducing these gradual measures, is that it takes too long to measure the impact (the numbers still aren't peaking in Italy). Safer to go all in, then scale back slowly.

The mass exodus has started.

Search on twitter หมอชิต (Morchit bus terminal).

Masses of people (Thai citizens and migrant workers) heading home because their businesses in Bangkok have closed.

Terrible situation right now.

One can just imagine if there is one infected person around...

Should have done that before anyone returned to the provinces.

Who would have paid the rent?

You should realize that this is highly unlikely by the powers that be.

Like they do(n't) in the UK, USA and other countries?

People were told asked a few days ago to stay in their houses and limit social contact. Then the malls and shops and restaurants were closed. But!!  Thais have never respected rules, and its going to come back and bite them and us.  Until the Thai people themselves see this and do something we are all in danger.   So many just simply dont have a clue or dont care.  Its not going to get better.
