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

I can live with the pollution and drunk driving, I have for years. This shxt is all too much!

Disagree. The headline for this story is about local leaders cocking up and having to rethink. My post gives examples of how cockups up to now are affecting local residents are working, and how without a rethink will continue to sow discontent and create additional problems on the side.

 

Either way mate, we're on the same train of thought i imagine in how we're viewing the authorities" handling of this whole thing.

You may be busy on every thread pointing out cock ups! But good luck, one thing we do have on our hands is time!

 

Thanks for answering my post in the spirit it was intended!

Concrete barriers for keeping people in/out seems remarkable overkill for something killing supposedly 1 person a day

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?

I think he meant all governments, not just Thailand's. At least that's how I took it. None of the current administrations in any country should be blamed for prior administrations lack of development of pandemic protocols.

When a good result is commensurate with thoughtful planning, and a disaster with little or none, this was to be expected. 

Whatever word Thais use for planning, there isn't a translation into any other language.

A growing 'PERFECT STORM' for the current government to deal with ... good luck, bracelets, and a following wind may not be enough.

It's not the worst (or best). New Zealand has seen 2 deaths, yet they are totally locked down and they were one of the first countries to lockdown. The 2nd person, a woman in her 90's, died today. They didn't give her exact age...

My father was 97 when he died - his death certificate says the cause was 'old age'. i Guess Covid-19 overides 'old age'.
