As we talk, apparently there will be a curfew imposed from Friday, 10pm to 4am.

It doesn't look good, but let's hope for the best.

That won't help much, the thai don't care for it, i see it everywhere...shops are open, they sit right next to huge signs which forbids them to go in the park, they also don't wear masks outside, don't keep distance....

 

It sure doesn't look good but it's also no reason to panic, Thailand still does much better than the West where nobody at all wears a mouthmask.

Yes so mr Anutin was right....oh now i said it again, will i get banned for 2 weeks again now?

Lol, the virus came from China, which I believe is Mr Anutin's wider background. He should look in the mirror.

You absolutely do not. Thailand does much worse than Germany.

 

In Germany 500,000 people are tested every week. No major country in the world is more successful than Germany in fighting the virus.

 

Try and educate yourself on the facts.

Even if there is only one chance in 100 of getting coughed or sneezed on and getting CV, why risk it?  

Yes, you would have to close your eyes as there is a chance of being infected through the tear ducts, but more likely through nose and mouth.  Its a respiratory virus.

Wearing a mask could save you from infection. 

Also you might be pre-symptomatic and cough on someone and infect them without knowing.

Wear a mask when around people.  It is simple, cheap, and easy

Well, this thread is about masks, i would recommend every foreigner to wear one when going out, just not to upset the locals.

Agree that panicking is useless, but looking at the bigger picture, i am quite worried, not just for myself, but for millions and millions without job and money in the near future.

Errr, because the evidence says that wearing masks is useless to protect yourself from the virus, because the top medical professionals in the world are saying wearing a mask is not necessary, perhaps?

 

Or maybe because the country which is most successful in dealing with the virus is one where masks are not worn?

 

Or perhaps because I'm not terrified of getting the virus, because if I do I'll be immune?

 

Take your pick from any of the reasons above.

 

I know for some people the mask is some psychological wonder weapon that works like a comfort blanket, but I'm no longer in Kindergarden and I don't need mask. If you do, that's perfectly allright, wear one. But nobody tells me what to do.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is a classic example of Darwinism at work... 🙂

Then why is the West now fighting for mouthmasks with the USA bidding 4 times more and buying the most of them to be sent to the US?

I just heard in Vietnam you get a $10 fine the first offence for not wearing a mask in public, second offence up to one year jail. Unsure if this applies at province level, or nation wide.

 

Wonder how many arrogant westerners will get caught out by this, as it seems some would prefer jail before they submit to wearing a mask.

All the people I see in Australia who are not following social distancing rules are 'arrogant' Asians wearing masks.

Come on now... you're seriously suggesting that some foreigners would risk a year in jail not to wear a mask if such laws existed? That's a stretch.

Yeah about a year.

Obviously for medical personnel.

 

For them it makes sense because they're in much closer contact with sick people.

 

This does not apply to non-medical professionals.

Yes, Germany is a Western country, I'm glad you're learning here.

 

And in German wearing masks is very, very rare. Yet excellent results in fighting Covid19. Better than Thailand.

 

So why wear something that is not needed?

No, it's not actually. You should read Darwin sometime.

Because they are asking you too. What more reason do you need ?
