  I wonder were they asked about the boxing arenas which is supposed to be where a lot of cases originated from?

Suppose if we could all turn back time...🤔

Good post. 

I never understand the cynical anti Chinese comments of the forum farang.

China is almost a neighbour of Thailand (unlike far far away western countries), Chinese immigrants have helped build Thailand, integrated perfectly, so many Thai ppl have partially Chinese roots. (unlike farangs who do zero integrating, are negative to the bone, and live in a bubble and are not part of Thai society). Besides this, believe it or not, but Chinese ppl (tourists) dont display the negative and cynical behaviour of farang, so its only natural that Thais would welcome Chinese ppl more than farangs.

Farangs unfairly trashing Chinese is a bit like an unwanted woman trashing her more succesfull rival! 

Thai shopkeepers do not welcome Chinese tourists. I know several who banned them from their shops, because they were pushy, crowded out other customers, and wasted hours of the shopkeepers' time haggling to try to drive the price down.

Yes, there are farangs who do not integrate. There are others who speak perfect Thai and are respected businessmen. I'm about halfway.

I am so happy to live in Canada, where we can go buy booze of any kind at the

liqueur outlets. Now the rules have relaxed and we can have a drink at out door

patio settings, just have to social distance 2 meters apart, except for family members.

Soon the restaurants and some bars will be open. Nice to be in a democratic country

where the military is only existing to protect the country, not rule it like

Thailand.  Good luck to the people who drink alcohol in Thailand, maybe some year

the Government general and gang will let you have some beer.

Geezer

 

The Thai government closed massage shops and stopped alcohol sales. Golf courses were closed. Massage shops are still shut down.

I can tell you I played golf throughout the ban period. A woman in my GF's village came to the house to do a 2 hour massage every weekend. I could buy a beer or a bottle of whisky  in the village shop any time I felt like it.

When rules are stupid, people find ways around them.

I, as a Farang I totally agree, and shut down all public transports also including planes. I don't use

all of these, so call me selfish if you like.

If I remember correctly Bangkoks two big outbreaks where the boxing arena and a bar around thong lor. More than likely a closed up joint with a'c. Reading on the internet they interviewed someone in the know and he said stay away from loud noisey places, the louder people talk the more they are spreading the virus. No more Tawan Dang for me

It seems there are extreme few infected people in Thailand. So who is going to infect whom?

As long a no "outsiders" arrive who bring the virus the risk is minimal.

Sorry I disagree.. a "few infected people in Thailand" was all it took to spread the infection from the Lumphini boxing matches, and then they proceeded to travel nationwide giving it to family & friends creating the biggest spike....

Outsiders as you call them would have been medically tested before travel so they in fact pose less threat.

It's the threat from within which is the worry !

Now do you remember the TV soap opera which was so popular a couple of years ago - the one set three hundred or so years ago, in which everybody lived comfortably happy self sufficient lives, the rich in their fine palaces, sumptious banquets and splendid clothes., the poor scurrying around half naked and living in huts, (and the token falang - Greek I think he was - getting a kicking at the end of each episode).

 

Do you remember the almost orgasmic delight with which it was received, and held up as a model by those " in influence" ?

 

Do you remember the hysterical sight of the watchman in period costume?

 

I suggest this is from the same scriptwriters!

 

 

 

No I don't remember any of the above, but you are obviously a fully paid-up member.

I don't see what the big deal is. They're not banning alcohol. Just drink at home.

Ban coffee shops then......?

Close all street markets, those in East Pattaya have "never" been closed, they are more of a danger than any bar or restaurant for spreading any Virus, many shoppers close to each other, many without masks..

Really?

Have you not been watching the news?

There is a worldwide virus pandemic going on and it is still going on, that is why the beaches are still closed.

thousands and thousands of lives are on the line, problem is drunkards just don't give a ****

if it is convenient have a walk around your local market /big C/ Central festival/ coffee shop/free food line/ MRTA /  you will encounter people jammed together, most will be in a group and there will be not  a lot of physical distancing or none that works, i went out yesterday, i have also walked for exercise and the same thing near everyone has a mask but once you get on a train or bus or a supermarket you are in an enclosed space and if there is a Covid carrier the virus will be present and if it is enclosed it can travel the same as you in closed space, in the open air space it is not as easy for it to travel, at least not as far in the open but for some strange reason and against every advice i have read they now say closed in is ok so long as there is no beer....

does the covid virus get attracted to beer ?  They need to inform the scientists.

How fast do these tests work?

Would you feel more comfortable with 1000 people who live in Thailand or 1000 tourists who just arrived?

The tracking app is definitely a good idea to keep the overview.
