If it comes to a 24/7 lockdown, would a foreigner who owns a property here be legally obliged to reside there or could they move in with someone else (girlfriend) at another address and remain there?

Presumably, at whatever address is registered with immigration

24 Hour lockdown is a ridiculous proposition.

They are idiots to consider it.

What about getting food and medicines?

Not really idiots as other countries have introduced this. And you would be allowed out to get food etc as Thais do need their fresh veg and meats. I would expect to see a time limit of some description for this, once a day between certain hours? and maybe just one person from the household to do it. Could be worse like the Philippines where anyone over 60 must stay in the house and is not allowed out at all!! With very strict curfews enforced. 

Just have to wait and see.

Not quite true. Seniors still can get a quarantine passport easily for free. In Robinson grocery shop for example, they even have their own "speed" lane, so no long waiting at the entrance. Everyone has to wear masks and is tested for fever.

Beg your pardon. I should have said that any farang over 60 is not allowed out. My friend over there is going stir crazy at the moment. His wife is okay to go out but not him.

And... In Manila, one person per family can get a quarantine pass. Shops like grocery, pharmacy and some banks are open. From 8pm to 5am is a total curvew. Since 2 weeks now, another week ahead and another 2 weeks in the pipeline. But one get used to this circumstances.

Yes, but I am 75 years old. When I applied for the quarantine pass at the barangay, nobody asked for my age. And the fast lane at the grocery shop, is for seniors! Don't know where your friend is living. I live in Manila. Should go to his Barangy.

This is a typical overreaction to their inability to enforce the simple social distancing and existing curfew.

As usual, the draconian threat of 2 years in jail for curfew breakers just makes them look as ridiculous as they really, really are!

 

Good lord, of course you won’t starve. Lockdown means only leaving home for absolute essentials, food, medicines, administration.  Food shops and chemists remain open at restricted hours.

True, Australia started social distancing and then lockdown pretty quickly and the rate of new infections and deaths has been quite low.

 

Only 34 total deaths nationally to date.

 

Five have been from one old people nursing home where initially they didn't follow the distancing directives and eight have come from cruise ships which did a poor job of hygiene etc.

 

34 less 13 = just 21 deaths nationally.  Social distancing and lockdown works (but of course people (preferably only one person per household can go out to buy groceries, medicines, etc.).
