Pattaya finally gets the Covid-19 message - It is a lock down in all but name

Thai media reported that Pattaya was effectively in lock down. 

 

77kaoded published an article with a captioned picture of a deserted area that said: No difference to a lock down. 

 

They said that when a whole swathe of places including bars, clubs and restaurants were ordered shut on March 18th many did not comply.

Many flouted the urgent instructions to help contain the spread of Covid-19.

 

Then the authorities moved in to enforce the ban which is now being observed. 

 

They reported that very little remained open, there were hardly any vehicles on the streets and the beach at night was deserted.

The latest announcements to make all restaurants take away only merely added to the ghost town feel of the once thriving resort. 

 

Pattaya - the former Queen of the Eastern Seaboard - has lost her crown.

Covid 19 is attacking Thailand, I expect all entertainment are closed. Ghost town is normal to me. Stay safe, pattaya.

In the part of naklua I am in, it has gradually been getting quieter and quieter, it was not all that busy even pre Corona.

 

Even more quiet today I would expect.

I hear from some Thai people that they now can’t get out of Pattaya? Police blocking the roads? If you want to leave they put you in 2 week quarantine camp. This true or fake news? Anyone know?

the unique Pattaya expat, that strong individualist, that rush in where angels fear to tread, with their Vin Diesel and I just got out of prison looks are standing up to the virus. 

 

we here in Hua Hin are washing our hands every time we walk from one room to another. 

 

you must wash everything you touch and someone else is likely to touch lol

 

Been to Hua Hin - just as mucky as Pattaya
