Buriram is the Health Minister's power base and he is good mates with the Governor. So you will be supporting Anutin for PM?

There is a much more powerful force in Buriram that does the hiring and firing. The one who got the above two their jobs in the first place, for example.

The "Buriram Healthy Passport" application showed his movements.

Who needs it? Where do you get it?

Interesting comment. I wonder how those people, when leaving their home for a trip, know that others have the same idea. That is until they get there. By which time it is too late.

Because I know the Snowdonia national park very well and I'm aware of just how popular it is. Even during a quiet period there are many people out on the many mountain trails.

Interesting how foreigners and Thais are treated differently. They say Thais are next, but this case of Nanny Sweetie, where a woman went to work in SKorea illegally and then went partying ignoring all self-quarantine shows she got off with a slap on the wrist. She just had to apologise.

 

Fair enough, she was not infected with Covid19, but the same applied to this foreigner. The foreigner pays a 20000 baht fine, the Thai lady does not.

Maybe the Chiang Mai Governor is too busy fighting fires in the hills which is also a serious health issue.

Just wonder, what he's been up to during the night in Pattaya. Imagine he was positive! 20k is very reasonable price for irresponsibility.

Pattaya is not considered a risky area. He got the fine because of leaving his wifes apartment. Get your facts straight.

"Who needs it?" It's an app and I think it's required in Buriram when officially quarantined.

I don;t doubt you do. However, I asked how those going there would know.

Thais are being 'isolated' in the home when they return to the provinces.

 

I know someone who went home in the middle of last week before the mass exodus which was obviously coming happened, she went to Sakhon Nakhon via Bangkok and arrived home late last week.

 

I provided her with a proper N95 respirator for the journey.

 

She was at first required to stay in the village - no travel to other villages, then the masses from Bangkok started arriving Sunday and Monday and they stepped it up a couple of notches, everyone who's returned should now remain at home for 14 days and not move around the village at all.

 

When they're at home in their 'isolation' they're staying with the family who are not restricted from moving around at all.

 

Not restricting the family during the 14 day isolation period is where this system falls apart and fails.

This is my main thought.  Staying at home with how many others who go about their lives.    It is going to hit the elderly in the villages hard I'm afraid.    Let's talk as bout how you can delete this app.   What's the time for your phone running out of battery.  Just buy a  500 baht burner phone for the app.  Bring an old <deleted> phone.  I'm not saying to avoid the quarantine but no one is putting a tracking collar on me.   Funny he went to pattaya.   That's the kind of understanding wife you come to Thailand for. Dont judge people.

Sure i not agree that mostly western foreigners are fined with high fines as thais wouldn't be able to pay it. And all those who fleed Bangkok to their home villages go because no money for living there. The government don't support any of these poor people.

All in all: that guy not follow the advices and the laws so he has to pay!!!

Dr Withit Saritdeechaikul further stressed that health certificates were of no use. 

Well, whoever this doctor is, it is absolutely contradictory to what happens at any international airport in Thailand. No certificate = no travel. 

In closing, I share the good doctor's point, specially if issued in a clinic anywhere in Thailand without proper testing (which is either not available or you fork anything between Baht 7K - 10.5K 😇

It is too much to hope for that none of those leaving were infected and laughable to think that all of them will self quarantine, but I suspect very few fines, if any, will be levied on any of them, especially not 20,000 a hit.

20,000 for filthy farangs, 200 for Thai victims...

Just wondering how did they notify you? The reason I ask is it seems many provinces don't have any checks in place (for example the the guy posting about his return to Chiang Mai from Bangkok). How are they communicating to people they should self quarantine, as it seems unless they make it obvious (as in on checkin to the hotel, which doesn't work so well if the person isn't headed to a hotel), it's going to be missed.

 

I would imagine the most effective place is notification at time of filling out residence notification for immigration (which would cover hotels and private residences). Except that doesn't apply to Thais.
