They find a way to spend hours on Facebook and Line watching nonsense.

Or post a lot of nonsense on forums, like you seem to do quite a lot.

Roll on the pay cuts. 40% cut for these people until July.

Ironic, because as I understand it, homeschooling is normally illegal in China. They might want to consider changing that law.

In China they do online teaching for the kids that are not back at school.

Home schooling - I think it's taught in the "Advanced Masochism" classes.

Wonder what private schools will do. Is online teaching allowed to start before July 1st or will the Government want all Thai schools to be in synch?

 

So many bank holidays, school days off, they could be used if necessary to make up some time.

The private international one where my kids are, are using Microsoft Teams and their own system for remote learning. Now on a 2-week songkran holiday but set to start after that.

You mean 'significant drops in new cases reported in the news' right? Not actual 'new cases' which are counted by staff - and as the health minister says, he can't be held responsible for anything they tell him being inaccurate.

 

What DOES add up is the economics - if my wife's factory does NOT close, she maybe stands to lose only 150,000 bonus next year. If it does close, then social will give her about 10% of her salary - and that's a massive hit even with a mortgage holiday.

 

I'm sure that closing down is the last thing that most people want in reality. I'd say the nightime curfew is mostly aimed to catch out the night time drinking gambling fools - and the cost is already immense.

If there was a significant undercounting of new cases in actuality we would know about them. Hospitals would be overflowing. They are mostly empty right now

They haven't been empty in ages, the opposite: https://www.krungsri.com/bank/getmedia/587ccdaa-91a8-4305-a86f-30ea43558f0b/IO_Private_Hospital_190624_EN_EX.aspx

However, although state hospitals may be found across the
country, their ability to serve patients is limited in some
locations, as can be seen from the following: (i) The bed
occupancy rate3/ is high and in some areas is close to or over
100%. At present, the occupancy rate stands at 103% in Satun,
98% in Loei, 96% in Phuket, Mukdahan and Surat Thani, and 94%
in Udon Thani and Pathum Thani, so it appears that at least in
some areas, the supply of government hospital beds is
insufficient to meet demand;

 

Overflowing is the normal situation.

I would love to see online learning or better home schooling. Put these Rich do nothing for the students education private school owners out of business.

I think it works best with older more mature kids who require less supervision compared to younger ones.

with kids of 11 and 6, you are spot on.

Look on the bright side. We parents won't just avoid catching the corona virus from our kids, but also all colds, head lice and those other ailments they bring home from those state-run indoctrination centres they call schools.

Dude the hospitals in my area of BKK and in bang na currently hardly have any patients. The parking lots at two hospitals in my area were near desolate earlier this week and one Thai friend of mine when to hospital in bang na and there were like 3 other people in the waiting room.

If it hasn't improved? The last three days we've seen significant drops in the number of new cases. What's not improving? At this rate we could have many days without any new cases. 

And they are making a decision like this now after two days of significant drops in reported new cases, it makes me wonder what the F the are hiding. I'm not a conspiracy theorist ever and very main stream in my opinions, but it doesn't add up. 

 

 

And a significant increase has just happened.

Of course there is something behind the scenes that we regular Joes have not been told.
