5pm to midnight to you isn’t the same  as it is to a Thai.

 

Different concept of time

Unlike most European languages,
which can be translated to one another with relatively great precision at almost all levels,
translating Thai into English as soon as you go beyond fairly simplistic notions it is practically impossible to keep the precise spirit of the text.

There can be no excuse for anyone mixing in close proximity but the mindset against dirty farang leaves me not wanting come back again.

Let's see which nationality pays the first fine for breaking Curfew. Will any penalty paid be the same amount regardless of nationality? I was informed of the curfew from a friend who translated the thai text. Was an english version put out there? These and many more questions will be answered shortly 😉

So as I read it, after midnight and until 5pm the same day, tourists CAN get together and party on Patong Beach????

I didn't realise that the virus can only be caught between the hours of 5pm to midnight. Outside of those hours people are free to mingle as always. Where did the Governor find that information?

Curfew YES. Dusk to dawn for EVERYONE!

 

Dusk to dawn for everyone! What about you transport that carries the essential products to the shops for you to purchase and live. There must be some exclusions to the curfew or the goods would not reach all the people to be able to live. Transport, vegetable growers, warehouse staff, loaders and unloaders of the trucks

And which Medical Expert did he take this advice from, or is he yet another Government Official firing from the hip, with no knowledge of how this virus acts upon the populace.

well  at  least  he  mentioned  thai  tourists  but  why  not Everyone? maybe  locals are  different and  immune to viruses

You are aware that English is not the official language of Thailand, right? Did it even occur to you there might be loss via translation.

 

You can't use simple punctuation but you are critical of a translation. Seems rich.

Take note!!! This virus is really contagious between 5pm and midnight.

 

The catch is that it's just as contagious at all other times.

 

Insanity.

Non-essential staff.

No ridiculous public gatherings, anytime, anywhere. People gotta start to pull there heads in, fair dinkum

The simplest thing is to orchestrate a full lock down, bring in TMP and the Army as they are doing in Spain, Italy, India and lots of other countries.

Covid19 will be disastrous for this magnificent Kingdom if nothing drastically happens soon.
