Lol.

 

Happy to report that Homepro is open for business. If you call their customer service number you will get a very attractive sounding lady with very good English and smart to boot. Best to check if your product is available.

 

If it is you can then drive there to pick it up, They say they prefer that and delivery is not a good option for them.

 

But you can definitely still shop at Homepro.

I went to one branch at Homepro. Most of the sections are shut, they only bring out some stuff to sell at a very small section outside.

Rubbish - I had 2 deliveries this week and signed on their phone each time.

Easy hombre, I had 2 last week and no sign. It's funny how one word automatically points to your home country  :cowboy:

HomePro in BigC only has a section open for cleaning supplies, that's all.

FolkGuitar: "With what I saw on the streets today during my food run, I'm pretty sure that number will triple very soon, and increase into the hundreds by next week."

 

By "the hundreds," I take that to mean 200+. 

 

IF by April 7th at midnight there are 200 or more cases I will buy you a steak dinner. 

 

How many are there now? Seven?

German health minister and German head of Physician's association say no need to make wearing mask mandatory:

 

"German Health Minister Jens Spahn said on Tuesday that he currently sees "no need for an obligation" in his country to wear masks. Interior Minister Horst Seehofer also argued that the focus should first be on ensuring that medical personnel and the police have enough masks, while several officials warned against sending the wrong signal by requiring the public at large to wear them. "It gives a false sense of security even though it virtually does not help at all," the head of the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians, Andreas Gassen, told the Handelsblatt newspaper."

My mistake. The count is 35 in Chiang Mai, based on the hourly update from 'Chiang Mai News in English.'

Please do us all a favor and move to Germany.  You'll be happier there. If you won't wear a mask, we'll be happier if you are not around us.

People here need neighbors who care about each other, and take responsibility for their community, not people who look for ways to avoid it.

From my link above -

 

According to an Italian Government Study 99% of their Covid-19 fatalities were already sick and half were diagnosed with 3 or more diseases.

Here are some excerpts from a Bloomberg article on the study:

The median age of the infected is 63 but most of those who die are older. The average age of those who’ve died from the virus in Italy is 79.5. As of March 17, 17 people under 50 had died from the disease. All of Italy’s victims under 40 have been males with serious existing medical conditions.

 

Puts paid to all the hysteria surrounding this - "But what about Italy" Horse Hockey

 

Only one immutable Truth in life - You can't live forever.

You don't speak for anyone. Only yourself.

 

And I will move to whereever I wish. You know nothing about where I would be happier, not much about anything else really. 

 

Let's keep it that way.

You're quite wrong. Again.

Actually, several people have been discussing you and your lack of social responsibility.

And those are only the ones that I know about. My guess is there are a heck of a lot more who read this board, but don't want to get involved.

 

I'll repeat... People here need neighbors who care about each other, and take responsibility for their community, not people who look for ways to avoid it.

As of 1 Jul 2019 population of Chiang Mai province - 1,688,200

 

You must of been very busy talking to each one of them, asking their opinions, and getting permission to be their spokesman. Kudos.

 

On every page of this thread I read the same thing. Point taken.

Also read rebuttals of same.

 

Face it - some people do not agree with you.

To endlessly repeat the same message over and over does serious damage to your credibility - on this or any other subject.

 

Believe what you like - Allow others the same courtesy.

According to the Dept of Disease Control website there were 30 cases in Chiang Mai province as of April 1.

You can link to the site from the main Bangkok Post story today.

One of the last things I worry about in this world is my credibility on ThaiVisa. Thank you for the laugh!

 

Fortunately, both the C.D.C. and the W.H.O. are now saying they are ready to state that masks should be worn by everyone when they are outside their homes. This announcement should be public by tomorrow.

 

And just as fortunately, Governors in Thai provinces are also seeing the value of masks and social distancing, and instituting mandatory orders that everyone wear masks, and everyone maintain social distances in shops, etc.

The Governor of Mae Hong Son, which includes Pai (which many of us travel to) has signed an order with these key points:

1. No-one can enter or leave the Mae Hong Son province between 10:00 pm and 4:00 am each day.

2. No-one in Mae Hong Son province can leave their home between 10:00 pm and 4:00 am (effectively a curfew)

3. Foreigners cannot go to Mae Hong Song. Foreigners already in Mae Hong Song may stay there.

The order takes effect immediately.

 

Alcohol sales have been banned in Lamphun from 5 p.m. today, April 1 through to April 30.

 

Believe what you like - Allow others the same courtesy.

 

When their beliefs can get the rest of the community killed, I will continue to argue against them.

Sorry if you don't like that.  I can't physically force them to go along with responsible behavior. I can only hope that within the next day or two, the Thai government will institute mandatory wearing of masks, mandatory closure of non-essential businesses, mandatory hand sanitizing on entry for all open shops, and maintenance of social distancing. And I'll pray that people start behaving in a responsible manner to aid their neighbors.
