From bargirls to taxi drivers to food vendors, Pattaya’s shutdown a domino-effect disaster

Recommended Posts

Sad to hear. But it’s like this everywhere in the world 

perhaps if the thais were better educated, weren’t pregnant at 16, they wouldn’t be forced to be working in the sex trade.

COVID-19 will bankrupt more people that it kills.  

Looks like it. Virus killed (number?).

Fight against virus ends many businesses, even more hopes, left thousands in debt, many run away in the night to avoid moneylenders, depression and suicides, relationships in 28 sq. m. apartments with the family under lockdown conditions breaking down and no money....

At least they can be happy their man in Germany is being looked after even better this year in the budget and might drop by next month to wave a bit.

I don't want to downplay the severity or repercussions of this pandemic but it is not possible to contain it one can only slow down the transmission by small amounts.  The answer is a vaccine or medical treatment not annihilating the economy.

without the vaccine or medical treatment, it will annihilate the economy one way or another. the current measures taken are to prevent a complete shutdown and avoid a healthcare disaster. Letting the virus rampage will cause a mortality rate of 15%.

There's a very, very long way to go before that happens:

World population: 7.7 billion

Number dead: 22.032 as of now

Number dead in Thailand: 4
https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

 

Even if the Thai figure is false, if it was very high then social media would be screaming about it.

Thailand is still in it is early stage of the pandemic. It was one of the first countries to 'import' the virus and was able to stay under the radar for a long time but 
you can safely assume more deaths have occured because of this virus and it will increase significanctly. Even in Italy, they see higher death rates then what is normally averaged for the same period of time in other years.

There is a medicine called chloroquine which should prevent it or so...there was an american family who tried to be smart and drank fish pond cleaner with this stuff in it but the man of the family died from that.

 

The medicine will be released soon i believe.

It doesn't prevent it, it only treats the consequences.

 I've totally given up on steak in Thailand, it was never worth what I paid for it.

The chicken and the pork ......... perfectly acceptable if not really good.

Even the alledged Wagu beef is quationable quality and very few Thai can cook a steak, as it way too thinly cut, not marbled and generally tasteless.

Sounds a high number, currently infected people in Italy resulting in just over 8%, in Germany 4%.

It's a real eye-opener when I go back to the UK or Spain and see the food, especially meat, there. It's of far higher quality and often cheaper than in Thailand.

You do know that WuFlu while may have started to make news and getting tracked, had to have started a few months earlier.

Thailand hosted about 9 million Chinese tourists in 2019, and logic is that many were from WuHan and that area.

Seems logical that WuFlu has been around for about 5 or 6 months on the ground but a few months less in the news.

So why has Thailand only 4 deaths (all of which had pre-existing health conditions)? What if govt is fudging the numbers and it's 100X that !?? 400 OMG!

Typical influenza/pneumonia kills FAR MORE per year, far more than 4 or 400 in 3 months, or more likely 6 or 7 months.

Why didn't big daddy shut down the country for the standard influenza pandemic? Oh, you know, everyone gets a cold or the flu sometimes...

If only if didn't rain every day, a bedsit didn't cost 600 pounds/month and the women wanted us, eh?
