24 million across Thailand applied for financial support, even if only 12 million deserved it only 1.2 million were approved, a lot of Thai people work off book (freelance), now that most of that market has been shut down what are they supposed to do, the government quite obviously doesn't give a toss and these lock downs are preventing needy people going to stay with family or friends

So, blaming Thailand and the way things work again. Seems to be all you can do. If you are going to continue with that, a good advice is to study the facts before.

Can you tell me what government that offers a relief for loss of work, includes the illegal part of that sector? If there is anybody to blame, that blame should fall on the people that offer these people unregistered work. They should be held responsible to pay compensation to the people that they throw away.

They will have to sort things quickly.  The airports of Wuhan are open again.  Soon there will be hordes of Chinese trying to enter Pattaya.

No there wont, thats a complete fallacy.

Good grief!  Give them another chance...how often do they have to make decisions during a pandemic?

 

This virus has exposed a serious lack of mass illness comprehension and healthcare planning...

Problem is they didnt think before deciding on a lock down, they just implemented it without thinking it out first.

Not the only government to do that.

Government bureaucrats are supposed to have action plans for every eventuality. They have no excuse not to have one for a pandemic since Ebola, SARS, swine flue, bird flue etc appeared.

Yeah!... just like all the rest of the world has action plans for every eventuality.

 

With the possible exception of Singapore, Taiwan and South Korea, are you being serious?

By some accounts of people on the ground there, the numbers of homeless and rough sleepers is exploding as landlords are being absolutely mercenary, and the governments inability to get any protections for the vulnerable in place are really hitting hard.

They were always there in the same numbers. Just that the hordes of Chinese and Indians made them harder to spot.

Think is a verb that does not exist in the Thai dictionary;
in any case, to think you need a brain ...:crazy:

I guess these Chinese will have to enter via the fabled porous land borders as there

are barely any flights in and out of Thailand these days, and a current ban on non

citizens entering.

Atleast they are trying. Done nothing about the pollution or drunk driving that kills more but baby steps i guess.
