Disagree. You forgot the elite which I'm sure have sucked up thousands if not 10's of thousands of tests and I bet they didn't have to pay.

Your evidence for this is what? Right...you have nothing !

17 yrs living here. That's why I say the elite will be looked after and will be being tested. Do you think they have to pay?

Then why are they making field hospitals everywhere in Thailand in Military building and hotels?

 

As Baden Powell once said: "Be Prepared"!

Hmmm... Singapore has been working hard on this since early on. Almost complete lockdown now. They've had about 1600 cases in total, with 7 deaths. Well over 100 new cases a day for the past couple of weeks. And I'm supposed to believe Thailand, with a much bigger population, has already managed to bring the new cases down to about 50 a day? Tip of the iceberg, I say...

<deleted> if I know man.  Perhaps to prepare for the worst?  

 

dude I'm not an apologist one way or another.  I'm merely pointing out the narrative of "yeah but where are the tests?, it's pointless without tests at scale" was valid for February and early March. 

We are now almost mid-April and the hospital ICUs are not overflowing, nor are bodybags flying out of these hospitals

 

 

How do you know? Remember this has been declared a state of emergency. The junta govt has censorship control of the media.

I don't know. 

I can only report on what I see.

I have driven by Bumrungrad, Samitivej, Phaya Thai 2, BNH, Thainakarin, and a couple others.

The government is not censoring my eyeballs

I hope the first step is to at least open up the restaurants and keep chairs well apart.

Just wonder how long they can keep all the anxious tourists out.

Unless their is a test available for every person, there will always be a risk.

They think the virus can survive on surfaces for up to 9 days.  If you think sitting far from patrons while you eat matters consider you are basically sharing your table with everyone who has sat at it for more than a week.

I get your incredulity at our worry. But, I think you and some others are making an error when you assume that it would be unavoidably obvious and not able to be hidden if an extra 5-10k people were dying each month in Thailand. But, consider that, on average, 48k people die in Thailand every month. How many of those did you see? If 48k turned into 58k, why do you somehow believe that we would all develop magical powers to see all those deaths?

 

I got back to Thailand at the first of Feb. So, was here all that month as well as March...and, now into April. So, statistically about 100k people would have died of all various causes in Thailand while I've been here. I directly know of two people who died of old age. I've seen the reports on the news about the handful who have died from C-19. Other than that, I'm oblivious to all the thousands of other deaths and so are you. I have no idea if there was a 10-20% bump in the monthly average number of deaths. That data is not being made available and none of us has magically become omniscient. Not me. Not you. Stop thinking you'd see all those deaths simply because it's a big number. 10-20k sounds like a lot of people dying. But, spread that out over a few weeks in a country of 70 million and you simply: do. not. see. them. You don't.

Parking lots about 25% full and Samitivej was a ghost town inside.

 

We would be hearing about it on social media if the ICUs were bursting at the seams
