There is an automatic presumption that a vaccine would be 100% effective. Not sure that would be the case. Don't worry. The huge numbers will not return for at least two years. If ever. 

Be a bit upsetting  if Swedens PMs got it right. Heard Immunity let em roam.. even if not it culls the weak.

There are many experts talking about the potentially extreme dangers of lockdown and the devastating effects it has on the immune system. I think it is an over reaction. Partial lockdown maybe. Protecting the elderly and vulnerable, sure. But entire societies and economies? Seems strange, bizarre and way over the top to me. 

Hmm,agree but as much as i dislike Leaders they do have a problem one could liken  to speed limits. A few Drivers are utter idiots so we all suffer a right to use sound judgement and crawl at 70 on clear empty hi ways wondering <deleted>. i realy dont know anymore.

if that's true the peace and quiet will be gone..... back with loudness, spiting, screaming, peeing/pissing not to mention the fighting over the sea food buffet

At least the free food queues and suicides due to poverty will be gone.

And i hope so,but the chineese need a 72 hours health certificate,corona free and a 100.000$ health insurance,they are the new rules of i make a mistake?

No, they don't need one. "Other nationalities" do require one.

I do wonder WHY Thai government is so loyal to Chinese...

They DO NOT spend any money when they travel.

Before moving to Thailand me and my family traveled the Europe.

In a tiny town Salzburg there was a place (maybe not just one, but we've seen one) - a Chinese restaurant. And four buses of Chinese tourists... They stay in places owned by Chinese, they eat in places owned by Chinese. These is almost zero solo-Chinese tourists in any country (that are coming from mainland China).

And still, Thai government wants more and more of them as "tourists".

Of course they will come flooding back because most have had no jobs for months. One boat accident in Phuket and the Chinese tourists dropped dramatically. What will happen after a pandemic?

Chinese tourists will return when Beijing thinks the time is right , end of story.

Beijing just announced that the city of Beijing coronavirus risk levels will be downgraded twice from level I to level III by the May 31st.

 

Chinese will be coming soon and could be as soon as this June.

Is it a myth perpetuated by westerners about Chinese tourists not spending money? If, as most posters here complaint, that money is the one and only consideration for all Thais, why would they then welcome the Chinese if they are spending very little, and only in Chinese owned businesses? Fact is that many small shops and businesses profit from Chinese tourists. Except probably the ladyboys, gogo bars and pubs with service girls, Chinese dont seem to frequent such places.

 

Definitely Chinese would prefer to tuck into a bowl of hot noodle soup when touring in Salzburg. An enterprising local could have opened a restaurant and hired a Chinese chef! In Asia, i find them eating local food. Yes, those coming from interior villages are badly behaved, this will change slowly.

How can you dare talk that way about the relatives of our leaders? Our neighbors? Our family members? The people who have their hands in everything we purchase here?

From some comments in this thread, I sense some posters are feeling a massive loss of face.

I thought the idea was to only let in "quality tourists" after the Madness passes. 

 

Does anyone actually think the Chinese constitute "quality tourists"?
