Thai media has said that people who defy the curfew tonight can be jailed or face heavy fines. 

 

Premier Prayut Chan-ocha announced a nationwide curfew starting tonight from 10pm to 4 am to prevent spread of the Covid-19 virus. 

 

People must stay at home. 

 

Sanook said that section 18 of 2005 regulations allow for a prison term of 2 years and/or a fine of 40,000 baht for violators. 

 

There are exceptions that include medical staff, bank employees, deliveries of food, agricultural products, medications, medical equipment, newspapers, gas tankers, postal delivery and parcel delivery. 

 

People travelling to quarantine facilities are allowed to be out as are those going to and from night shifts for work.

 

People are allowed to be out to travel to airports. 

 

Officials or those with special permission are also allowed to be out.

Makes these gangsters look like they care

 

no mass testing, no human rights, just complete abuse of controlling a society, nothing but daily propaganda blaming western foreigners, for the Wuhan virus, even the thai guy at the thong lor party, said countless times on his facebook, that there was never, ever any one from Hong Kong, and they lied by blaming the party infection on a foreigner 

 

i pity the millions of families losing jobs, no idea when they will start to earn any income, all because of daily fake numbers saying 15 people have died 

We don't even need mass testing... You can take a batch of samples from say 100 people who tested positive and send them to all the pathology labs in the country to speed up the process and test each one manually to see which are actually COVID-19 and which are other forms of the 'coronavirus' such as cold and flu... then extrapolate those figures across the amount of infected and even the rest of the population just to get a realistic ballpark figure.

Not nearly a big enough sample but mass random testing of the public to get a sample and make realistic national estimates is a good idea. But it also needs to include antibody blood tests to get an estimate of previously infected.

I watched a video compilation of thais commenting on having their livelihoods removed and it is becoming clear that they would rather risk getting COVID-19 and take their chances than to starve to death.

Understandable.

Better than in the Philippines. Police there have orders to shoot violators. Hope Pattaya Police don't get confused.

Its coming to that, mark my word...no money, no food, can't even go home....Governments are not stupid...why do you think booze bans and curfews are instigated...drunk starving people will loot and thieve at night...however this is just prolonging the imminent

rioting that is sure to happen
