Foolish. 

 

The restaurants must be forced to close for dining in, and allow for take away only.   

 

Decisions like this will just result in more cases of transmission, eventually leading to full shutdown.  Better to move to full shutdown now.     

Well if a full shutdown is going to happen any ways why not just keep open as long as possible...

Because keeping open as long as possible extends the period of time for the partial shutdown, with cases still coming in.  It's like shuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic.

 

They should go to full shutdown, which helps when trying to play catch up with the spread of the virus.

 

Typical Thai mentality, thinking of a baht today.  No thought about tomorrow.

 

If they continue with their partial shutdown, or any shutdown is too brief, many countries around the world will get on top of the virus, while Thailand still remains a no go country, and there goes Thailand's tourism industry for the next 20 years, as tourists eventually holiday to other destinations.

 

For a country that relies heavily on tourism, particularly for direct, and indirect employment, swift and harsh measure from the start would have seen Thailand be able to recover their economy a lot quicker,  but no, make a few baht each day we can stay open and don't worry if that means we must close for months in the future.

This is not good. They need to limit restaurants to takeout and delivery or the virus will spread quickly.

Has spread or will spread even faster

Similar to the restaurant controls in Singapore.  Not everyone has a home with a full kitchen and a large fridge, and after allowing 500,000 visitors from China at the height of their outbreak, it would not make much sense to damage people's livelihoods after the horse has bolted, visited a boxing stadium, then trotted home to Isan. 

 

But I do think everyone should wear a 'sneezeguard' type mask when out of their home to help prevent spread to others.

Can I add the word 'more' between your last two words??

Meant in a nice way.
