After expenses, she said she has about 2,000 baht to her name. So she plans to head home to Korat instead of staying in “expensive” Pattaya where rent, food, transportation and other expenses require her to make at least 30,000 baht a month.

 

Not true. They usually rent a room with somebody else, cook food and live pretty cheap.

 

   

You forgot about 10,000 baht a month sent home to family to look after children ect ect

No money, no woman in the UK either ...... and they expect more than a thousand baht when they leave.

A bag of chips and a deep fried Mars Bar?

In the USA, we have a guaranteed freedom of the press—and thus we get some pretty accurate numbers of the Chinese Covid-19.  How free is the press/media in Thailand?

Freedom of the press CNN etc, yeah right. I wouldn't believe anything those guys said. And the UK is just as bad with the Brussels Biased Corporation.

I consider any apartment for anyone that costs over 5,000bht/month in Thailand 'luxurious'.

 

There's some really nice apartments at the end of my road for 2,500bht/month (built last year).

Swimming pool/restaurant/beer bar next door (40bht for the pool, girls in Chang uniforms).

What more do you want?

One more 'sad' member removed from my sight forever ...... can't cope with sadness ...........

Interesting, not really, that a lot seems to think she living on 30k a month is exorbitant.

 

Unless your a farang teacher your not living on that

 

She works tough job for her money. Shame on her for spending it as she she's fit.

And no it won't get you a Merc or a lobster to often

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.

Treatment doesn't exist. 

Vaccine 12 to 18 months.

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.

Unproven by science. It is being tested along with other potentially helpful therapies. But nothing now.

 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), caused by infection with SARS-CoV-2, has swept across 31 provinces in China and over 40 countries worldwide. The transition from first symptoms to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is highly likely to be due to uncontrolled cytokine release. There is an urgent need to identify safe and effective drugs for treatment. Chloroquine (CQ) exhibits a promising inhibitory effect. However, the clinical use of CQ can cause severe side effects. We propose that hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), which exhibits an antiviral effect highly similar to that of CQ, could serve as a better therapeutic approach. HCQ is likely to attenuate the severe progression of COVID-19, inhibiting the cytokine storm by suppressing T cell activation. It has a safer clinical profile and is suitable for those who are pregnant. It is cheaper and more readily available in China. We herein strongly urge that clinical trials are performed to assess the preventive effects of HCQ in both disease infection and progression.

Some have combined it with an antiretrovial which has caused severe medical problems.

One of my friends hit it off with a GoGo dancer from the Fahrenheit bar. She lived in the Unixx Condo development. She let him stay with her (free) when he came to Thailand.

 

The hottest girls can afford to live in nice Condos.

 

People all over the world find themselves out of cash, and needing to move, when they lose their jobs.

 

I've done what I can for girls here by offering them a bed for the night 😉
