Foreigners on the beach: A spot of exercise or breaking the rules?

I see a problem on the horizon with all the soi dogs who now are able to roam free but there is nobody there to feed them when we are allowed to go back to the beaches will these rabid wild animals take a instant dislike to humans invading their beaches?

Large parts of Pattaya have been no-go areas to humans because of these disease-carrying, accident-causing oxygen thieves even before the virus struck.  Thailand wishes to be considered a civilised country yet allows these packs free rein.

Every evening I go jogging in my Mo-Baan, and every time I pass some elderly Thai's out walking, they put on their masks 😷 , when I pass them again 15 mins later they put on their masks again .. .. .. .. .. Maybe I should order one of these dinosaur costumes and use while jogging - just to see if they put on their masks 😆

They probably reckon you're that dirty, filthy Farang that they've heard about.

I know what you mean the biggest complaint from our guest is the amount of stray dogs on the beach

Fair enough if i cough or they cough at that moment not that that would really happen. Touching surfaces... only with my shoes🤣

 

I get it in shops where your constantly in close contact and not open air. But not jogging or walking when you pass eachother occasionally and briefly. 

Not just cough, breathe perhaps too, a jogger often pants and spits.

(Makes me want to throw up)

Some recent research is suggesting it can survive on surfaces longer than first thought. 

I think it considerate  to be wearing a mask perchance you come across others, or stay very well clear. Taking a rest on a bench not a good idea too.

This is what happens when the silverspooned chi-thai minister of health exposes his ignorance, insecurity and prejudice publicly. Others with equal or greater ignorance go out of their way to produce this nonsense to conscript the simpleminded.... this is the thin edge of the wedge..... what happens if things get desperate? Where will the anger/ frustration be directed?

The farangs of course, the source of all that is wrong in thailand,  as per the minister.

I actually don't jog.. just log 2 heavy weights one in each hand and make a few rounds. No way i can do that with a mask as it cuts of breathing. Wont be sitting on any benches. But see plenty of Thais without a mask. I don't see it as a real risk. Only when your for a longer time in close contact in a closed area. But truth be told I should do the walking with weights more dont do it often enough. Usually just workout in my home gym.

Irresponsible.

Your excuse concerning cutting off breathing simply doesn't wash.

I do my cycle training, hundreds of kms, wearing a mask. It doesn't impede my breathing, I just breathe more deeply..

Just another who feels they are somehow exempt..

Lots of people swimming here at Jomtien and walking on the beach so maybe that closed beach and no swimming applies to just the curfew hours ?

🤣 cycling with a mask.. why would you.. im sure you can keep enough distance especially on a cycle. I can even keep my distance in the park from others. Its about distance. 

 

You know i also don't wear my mask when I walk with my dog... again.. keeping enough distance IF i meet people. The park i go to in front of my home is not used that much.

Pollution. Large soot particles. When you are taking in huge volumes of air, everything helps. Seriously, you are just showing your ignorance making statements such as the above.

 

When you are breathing heavily carrying your weights, you are emitting droplets constantly. Anyone who crosses your path is likely to come in contact with them. 

 

In public, wear a mask. If completely alone in a park, you have an excuse.

Sorry just not worried like you. The park i exercise in is almost always empty (depending on time of course). I might encounter a few people but there is enough room to pass while keeping the 1.5 meter distance. 

 

Not going to wear a mask when its not needed and social distance can be maintained. Always wear a mask in the shops and other closed crowded places.

People on beaches almost always keep well separate from strangers, the greater danger lies in queueing up for immigration, or visiting smallish bank branches and shops where people are huddled together. There are but very few parks in Thailand, also many people live in tiny rooms or small condos, and being stuck there for extended periods isn't exactly good for their physical and mental health.

Worried like me? What does it have to do with me?

It is for the protection of everyone, not just about the whims of a selfish few who care only about themselves.

As usual there is always someone who thinks he knows better...

Your heavy breathing will ensure that particles are spread beyond any 1.5 metre spacing. Just selfish in my opinion.

I am wondering, when all of you virus panic makers will have enough of all this BS and switch to something different.  I am wondering, where you are getting your information, are you able to do some research and listen to authorities in virusology not mass media panic making agenda ..... have a good night

You seem to have developed rules to suit yourself rather than what is being recommended by knowledgeable sources. Your 1.5m seems short, and how do you determine a mask is not needed?

 

Are you deliberately trolling?
