To go or not to go, to a restaurant ?

Recommended Posts

I'll just point out that restaurants are not the only issue. On the prom today I saw 6 ladies sat on a mat with food and whisky and not a mask between them. They were definitely enjoying themselves; I am sure they felt they have earned the right to party a little. All were wearing Tops t-shirts, so I guess they had just finished a shift at Tops Supermarket under Markland on Soi 1. I haven't seen the police doing patrols anywhere the last few days; they all seem to have gone to ground; so there is no enforcement of social distancing.

I think a lot of people are not  seeing or hearing any evidence that the virus is in Pattaya and are wondering why they and their families are having to suffer great hardship. The immediate future looks very depressing.

The only people making a good living seem to be Grab food delivery drivers, who must be high risk handling money from numerous customers day in day out.

how is takeaway safer? What if someone in the kitchen is asymptomatic and transmitting... and they handle your

plates, cutlery etc?

I doubt you get plates and cutlery with takeaway.

Ive had food delivered that has a plastic knife and fork tossed into the delivery bag along with some crumpled up napkins.

Firstly you use your own plate and cutlery, in a restaurant there's lots of opportunity for staff and customers to cough or sneeze near you. Eating the food is the same risk in a restaurant or out of it. I can't recall one case worldwide where someone caught Corona from eating food, but it probably happens

Very very low, need to be careful with deliveries from Supermarkets etc, the problem is none of us are safe until we've had a vaccination, which could be some time away

Also keep in mind its all a bunch of nonsense....Bon Appetit

Nonsense or not, I'm just thankful that all this has made more people aware of basic hygiene.

 

Hopefully the knowledge about the spread of disease will remain after this current episode has passed.

Until a vaccine is found and more importantly available to the general public.

You won't be sitting in a restaurant for 12 to 18 months. 

This virus is now in circulation so take your pick.

People maybe laughing at your 12 to 18 months but I have looked into this matter deeply and found this could be are real possibility.....But I certainly hope not...

At least we can dream about it!

 

Im useally paranoid when it comes to cleaning hands after toilet, when get in house, before go to kitchen etc, cleaning door nobs, cell phones, and so on, Sneezing in the albow, not in hands,  but more or less had to give up my mission when I decided to live in Thailand, and close my eyes, but hopefully they learn something now.

Some.

Even if you sit in your room for the next 2 months and only have delivery, something could be on that delivered package.  If you go out at all you are still touching surfaces which is a risk.

Then the lingering airborne.  Maybe someone sneezed in your elevator, hallway, or the place you are walking.

All this and you never had contact with anyone.

 

If you can load up with several months of food, and never leave your room, then very very low.

 

But, mental illness may set in and harming oneself is possible.

You can worry yourself to death for sure.....I choose not to worry about any of it...

Selfish, you should worry about others, if no need to worry about yourself.
