Maybe the goal of the curfew is to prevent the kind of social activities that tend to occur during those curfew hours and that can lead to cluster-type infections if any one person is actually positive knowingly or not.

Like shopping at early morning markets?  Hummm 🤔

Much more dangerous than shopping at mid-morning markets or afternoon markets or evening markets.  Hummmm 🤔

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.

But they are not given that choice.  No job, out of money for a couple of months, no job prospects, banks knocking on their door, foreclosure threats, bill collectors, phone and utilities cut off, landlord tosses renters out - then...... Social unrest.  A genie that ain't going back in the bottle by dropping a couple of thousand baht on the commoners heads. Not so much in the rural villages, but in cities and the surrounding khets and amphurs and semi-industrialize areas and provinces with Universities- look out!
I wonder how much different civil unrest looks like when it springs from difference in ideals (Red vs Yellow) as opposed to the desperation of hungry, jobless people demanding a fundamental change to make their lives livable in a county where that gap between 'haves' and 'have nots' is unspannable.  Different levels on Maslow's "Needs" chart imho. 
One's primal; the other is not.  
One you can put down with force; the other one blows sky high.
Hungry, desperate people; danger, danger, danger...
Hammer the top on, shake the bottle, and wait.

The distribution of infection is similar across age groups, but not many are infected less than 10 years old. There aren't many deaths in Thailand so far because the median is 34 y.o. One son got infected at the boxing match, took it home, and killed his elderly father. This is the problem we face. 

Yes. And that’s why we need a support group around the vulnerable people. Isolate from the rest of society but taken care of with food and support. Until this virus clears.

You guys think this will go on longer than one month or so?

One month, if the curfew achieves it's goal of sufficiently slowing the spread of the virus, is more than enough. However, that is a big IF. The real goal, I believe, is to prevent the virus from overrunning the hospitals, which the curfew will hopefully accomplish. The problem is that the virus has a (roughly) 20 day window. So you have to account for all of those currently infected and provide enough time for them to clear it out completely. Thus, the 30 days. The other possible benefit will be that people will not like the curfew, and will possibly be a little more serious about distancing themselves once it is lifted. The real question is, will the curfew really slow the spread. If not, then they are left with the 24 hour option, which will totally suck.

HAS Thailand banned booze yet? what do the addicts gonna do then?  snort detergent?

Make jar brandy with sweet fruits. We did it as kids and it takes about a week,but it's strong and has some other products not so good for long term consumption.

Why are they making such a drama for 2000 cases and 19 deaths ?!

 

I dream of a world where people understand that it is normal to die ! especially when you are old !

Is this just another example of doing something, but not actually doing anything, I mean, just how many people are out, and about, between 10pm and 4am, let's face it, bars are closed, night clubs closed, massage shops closed etc, these curfews seem ridiculous.
