Governors put on alert for tougher measures to contain Covid-19

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

According to one newspaper in Bangkok it is the entire country but I don’t think they’re enforcing it because deliveries are still getting made late at night. Although it is better to order during the day before 8PM. Correction I don’t think they’re enforcing it up here. I don’t know about other cities though.

In the part of Thai. there I live there is no sign  of the virus, during the day Thais are working as usual, but going home at 6 oc like good people, most non workers are staying home as much as they can, but they are not taking much notice of the news (as in all must die) like the global warming <deleted> of (all must die) I hope they keep their happy attitude, oh and whiskey is still a good drink as is the home brew, I am doing my bit I have not been out of the house for 2 weeks my wife and daughter are doing the food shopping and paying bills other than that they are staying home

They have to make people better understand the need to combat the virus, such as by convincing people to stay at home and avoid any kind of travel.

Don't like knocking the 7 day funerals, there was one in our soi many people attending and cars from many other provinces places, what will they do about that.

 

If any of them are in a incubation period of C19 surely funeral should be put on hold.

What is it about lying numbers you dont get? Not accurate tests,deaths and cases is all the same.

Totally controlled by the people on top.Just like every other number put out in public.

That is just how this country is working.

It is much easier to manipulate the number of cases than the number of deaths. 

 

Cases are just statistics, but deaths are real people, with real families, some of which at least will talk. 

 

Most of Thailand is like a big village, or rather a network of small villages, where gossip travel at light speed...

I looked it up and it is just Bangkok currently for the curfew I expect it to be imposed on the whole country potentially. 

You obviously did not look in the right place ....it's nationwide but some provinces have also imposed stricter or extra rules, Chonburi, Phuket, Krabi, phangna provinces for a start. I cannot link to the current story in the Bangkok Post but you could try reading that, or "Richard Barrow in Thailand" on facebook, he is pretty good at keeping up with the latest news.

How can you tell if there are no covid19 cases?Just curious as how you can tell by just looking or if you have access to medical records?

What I meant was that when I ask the nurses and Specialists if they have any in-patients being treated for CV the answer is none.

I think it's reasonable to say many of us live within 2 km of a Wat, where cremations take place. One of my close neighbors provides music for the homes of bereaved families and he usually has about 1 or 2 'bookings' a week. I can honestly say he's not worked for about 2 weeks and neither have I heard or seen any form of funeral/cremation/wake over this period. 

So, in my area there have been no Covid 19 related deaths recently, but if there have been then the bodies are being disposed of in secret.

Also the local 'grapevine' is totally devoid of any Covid 19 news, unlike when someone had died from HIV. This type of news spreads very quickly in a small township, but there has been no mention of it here.

I hope this situation continues and isn't the 'lull before the storm'!

I'd be interested to know if any TV readers have actually seen videos on youtube, twitter or whatever of any thai hospitals supposedly riddled with corona patients. I have lots of Thai friends posting how angry they are , but yet to see a post of a hospital

I agree on the gossip part but people in Isan have no clue on what is going on In the other districts.1 or 2 villages next to them is basically all they know about life outside their own.

As of yesterday, Thailand has done 25,000 tests.

 

Italy had done 691,000 tests.

 

The true picture of this tragedy is yet to be seen.

Where did you get that statistic about Thailand?

Not any hospital - sick patients suspected to have COVID19 are triaged to specialized locations. It's actually very sensible thing to do, but also means you won't see sick people in the aisles by going to Samitivej.
