Covid-19: Foreigner fined 20K for breaking quarantine - health certificate didn't help him; Thais warned they are next


Recommended Posts

I've posted in a few other topics that last weekend the beach here in Rayong was full of Bangkok number plates and they were enjoying themselves as usual because the bars and restaurants are not closed. Rayong is not in lockdown and neither is Bangkok if they can just freely drive to Rayong as they please and spread the virus.

And I am sure that every one of the tens of thousands jumping on buses out of Bangkok yesterday were faithfully loaded into this system too, right? It is too much to hope for that none of those leavin

I recently returned from a trip to Pattaya to Buriram. I have been under self isolation since 19 March. Registered on the app and temp checked twice a day. Bit bored, but when I look at the

And the people who have left Bangkok to go home are responsible enough to self quarantine themselves are they? I will believe that they will all get a 20,000 fine, when they go out having fun, rather

My wife is visiting her home town in Issan. She drove there today. She was told the local officers are coming around and telling people who are returning from big cities to self quarantine for two weeks. The people are getting really scared. Caution is good. Panic is not good.

Yeah right ! H T <deleted>. are they going to monitor and track the 100,000’s going back to village life that they are self - isolating.

Life in the sticks is very, very different than city life. Especially when the Bottles Of Lao Khow, and various other whisky types are opened up. 

With usually just a few spoons for everyone to use 🤔

 

Don’t look into this to much but one senses they the ‘authoritarian’ power vacuum may have other motives for the mass exodus for those to go back to rural life for 14 / 21 days 🤔

 

Just Sayin 🤔

Have you ever though about that he might have friends he know in Pattaya? Maybe he was tired after travelling?

Is that the excuse you use? Good one.

Where did I mention myself? I do not even visit Pattaya since 10 years back in time.

There are checkpoints between Australian States now so if the Thais were serious it could be done.


 

Absolutely no argument with that.

I was out for a walk yesterday morning, making sure I kept a distance from the few people I saw, when a woman pulled up next to me on a motorbike to say hello. She was the wife of a now deceased Norwegian guy and I know she’s been working in Pattaya. I asked her two keep 2 meters away from me because of Covid and she rode off - presumably in a huff. I’m sure she should be in quarantine, but what do I do? If I report her, I’m likely to destroy all the good faith I’ve built up with the locals in the 5 years I’ve been here. If I say nothing and she’s a carrier, she could infect countless others. Sensible suggestions please

"He then went to Pattaya for a night where he rented a car."

 

The 20K fine might be less painful than having to explain to the wife why he spent a night in Pattaya.

Thats why he never got out of the car !!!

They get paid to snitch on foreigner's.  What's the number to call again? 1179?

They don't, there is no reward for that, if there was it would have been publicised.

Thaivisa notes that tens of thousands of Thais and migrant workers have been leaving Bangkok - many on crowded buses and trains - after much of the city was effectively locked down.

Going to blow up big soon... self quarantine at home away from family members... Lol

He spent one night in Pattaya to rent a car...?

 

Hmmm....

 

 

 

 

At least 5 places to rent  a car in Pattaya that anybody can get to on a bahtbus. I'd be lost in Bangkok as well as frightened by the traffic there.

"He further stressed that health certificates were of no use".   So why are immigration going nuts to tell everyone to get one ?   Could you imagine trying to get 20,000 bht out of Somchai in Nakhon Knowhere ?  Any news on the 80 or so that legged it from Quarantine ?   Oh i forgot, no point chasing Thais because they havn't got a pot to P^%$ in......
