..i was making a statement..posing the question..your reply meant nothing..there has to be a major flaw in all these cases..the huge amount of persons being infected..lets say one month ago most wore a mask..few wore eye protection as well, but a fair percentage of Asians do wear prescription glasses, which in itself is another barrier. This leaves the presence of the CoViD-19 that has landed by coughing, sneezing or transported by another human on their clothing, or on the surface of their masks, or on the surface of their skin which is then transferred to their face, eyes, mouth due to poor personal hygiene. I know that the human skin cannot absorb the virus and i also know that there are no ACE2 receptors on the surface of human skin. So there has to be an avenue where this virus is regularly getting into the recipients body, and that has to be by their own hand. If disposable gloves are worn whilst you are out doing your business and then stripped off one inside the other and then wrapped in your mask, which must be disposed of correctly; then you have dramatically increased your chances of not catching this virus. This month (April) is see many more folk wearing a visor but are still gloveless and handling a multitude of things, be it packaged or perishables plus the dirtiest thing of all, paper money! (I carry a zip-lock plastic bag and open it for the cashier to drop my money in..i seal it and disinfect it when i get home).

As far as your shop staff goes..it is now obligatory everyone wear a mask when out in public; visors etc are optional. Keep safe Mr. Tony125.

Latex gloves are NOT sterile and could spread coronavirus

...you still dont get it do you..and want to keep arguing against common sense.

The gloves of whatever synthetic material you care to put on will pick up/absorb the virus for sure as would your un-protected hands..if you have an additional barrier, which you take off and discard correctly, then sanitize your bare skin; it must reduce the likelihood of contamination..stands to reason.

I suggest to you my friend you do it your way, and i will do it my way. No-one for sure will mock me or take me to task for wearing gloves.

The whole of the planet will have to learn to live with this new virus until it is eradicated, which is highly unlikely into the forseeable future.

Not aruguing with your choice simply posted the article on the specific point we were discusing. Made no comment about it , just posted it for those that wanted latest opinon on gloves. As far as masks the article below shows a US doctor who was infected  said he never wore a N95 mask before and wasn't  shore he was puting in on or taking it off correctly.  Health groups say those masks should be worn only by health care workers as they know how to wear, BS---they don't  go to med schools and stydy for months on how to wear a mask but any of us can go on Youtube and learn how to use a mask or gloves and dispose of properly. Take care

Why persist in calling it a "lockdown"?  People can still go to work, go shopping for food or takeaway food, go out to exercise or just go for a walk.  A lockdown is what they had in Whuhan, Italy and Spain.

Well since yesterday we can not go on the beach or on the sidewalk near the beachroad

all the swimming pools have been closed few weeks ago, a lot of shops also

and tomorrow we can not go anymore from the ''darkside'' side of sukkumvit to south Pattaya

and vice versa. so can we call it a ''half lockdown'' or a ''semi lockdown'' it's ok for you?

You can still go on the beach sidewalk. Plenty of people there at lunchtime.

Swimming pools are NOT all closed... I walk and not alone on the both sidewalks on Beach Road.  Don't know about Dark-Side.  The biggest problem (for me) are the packs of dogs in isolated areas.  Food is plentiful and I see more smiles and friendly people than vise versa.

No, you can not anymore.

 

Confirmed by a TVF member.

 

That people still do it, is lack of knowledge, and ignoring the large posts in Thai and English.

That is until they get caught, arrested and issued a fine.

Plenty of people on the boardwalk this morning. I guess the police don't mind exercising but don't want drinkers in the evening. Some Thais are still fishing from the beach.

For those who don't understand thai, ask a native to listen to the speaker (outside of the camera) in this video, and translate it for you.

 

Title of the video is a clue.

 

I know, still some of you don't think the law is for you. Whatever.

"and beachside walkways in Pattaya"

Should be clear enough message, even for the most stubborn here.
