I don’t understand this article says there’s already a curfew so I’m guessing that’s just Bangkok or Pattaya because up here there’s no curfew nor have I heard of one anywhere else except reading this. 

you clearly haven't heard that if it doesn't happen in a major city, anywhere in the world, then its not happening at all.  This is all City centric. Reading the Bangkok post, you would think that the world starts and ends in Bangkok, same for BBC news and London. or CNN and New York,  Yes, they have more people and therefore more instances of infection, but lets at least  have a bit of balance and report what the rest of humanity is going through, or not.  Around me, in this semi rural location,. life has not changed one jot, except that most people are wearing masks, including me. Plenty of market stalls  open and thriving, lots of stuff in the shops.

I tried to go to there on Saturday, unfortunately they have new opening hours, now opening at 10am, I also noticed that they have only the one entrance in use now.

IMHO that is counter productive to social distancing, as less opening hours simply means more people in the shop at any one time, reducing the entrance means everybody has to funnel through one point.

there is also the back car park entrance

Meanwhile, today is Chakri Day with government employees getting a PAID holiday while businesses forced to close by that same government suffer. 

Businesses have to pay staff in the event of a full lock-down 75% of their salary.

Fortunately everyone but the engineer was laid off over the last few months 😅

All the queuing for tests in hospitals sounds like madness, a sure way to spread the virus

Yes, this was a major factor for us as the risk was way too high to take, we ended up with 7 going to drive thu's and 43 tested by a travelling team from WMC, nobody tested positive from the tests, this was due to one person testing positive earlier and these 50 had some form of contact, the person that tested positive was quarantined in a private hospital in BKK, never showed any symptoms at all and was tested negative last Friday.

you don't have to believe any numbers, you just have to go to any

thai hospital and see if it looks like a corona outbreak hospital.

there is no way to hide or deny when the outbreak happans.

the hospitals are just full of people coughing and acctually dying everywhere.

people cough blood and fall dead in the streets, shops, offices.

this is happaning right now in new york.

this is what happaned in wuhan china (only when it allready happaned, 

the chinese governemt started to act).

and this is NOT happaning in thailand. 

maybe the weather? maybe the good spirits? maybe another lighter mutation

of the virus?

let's just hope and pray it will stay this way, and go away in may.

I go to a Hospital in Bangkok twice a week for ongoing Physio Treatment. For the last 4 weeks the Hospital has become emptier and emptier. No CV cases at all. They are ticking over and sent specialist staff home. Too much scare mongering going on typical TV style. It was obvious that as the cities emptied the virus would go to the countryside where the locals carry on as normal in some cases. They need to control the spread of the virus in these places before they can even consider opening up the cities again or even let tourists back into the country, which will see a mass re-population of the cities from the countryside.

Yes, this was the one I meant, there are normally two in the car park area, I forgot about the front entrance, as always drive to there, as do most, when I got there about 9am there were about 30 people waiting for it to open, all at the entrance! I declined and went to Villa little walk instead.

If the numbers presented to us are actually true, then thailand can be really satisfied and a 24 hour curfew would absolutely not be neccessary. A look at Europe or America shows that the infection rates and the number of deaths per hundred thousand inhabitants is incomparably higher than here in Thailand. In addition, the pandemic in south east asian countries has been managed very well to this day.

They are not accurate, i'd imagine if 1,000 reported = 10,000 real, its been spreading in Thailand since the very early days, but has been neither too hot, nor too cold, (OR DRY), my perception is, Thailand is a sweet spot, it continues to spread, but you see less real impact (deaths, serious cases), also the locals are very 'hardy', i know three builders (left for their home province) were down with it, they just carried on like normal, whilst spluttering away behind their makeshift masks, and this was two weeks ago.

It takes 4 to 6 week from contracting the corona virus to death! Wait for the numbers of deaths to go up! assymtamatic  carriers now estimated to be greater than 20%. (WHO)

A controlled lockdown will be necessary to stem the growth !

 

Stay home, when out wear a mask, spray everything with alcohol!


Follow the rules

Enforcement, plus certain businesses and activities are exempt

The whole point of controlling an epidemic is to put strict measures in place BEFORE it gets out of control. 100 new cases per day down to zero is the goal. Suck it up and get with the program.

Which program are you with?The real program or the made up program?

The food banks are intended for the poor and income-less (because of the quarantine)

Not for everyone

There will be no full 24-hr curfew

We will be able to shop for a couple of hours at least

It's to be hope so.a lot of thai's shop daily for fresh food
