I will stand corrected until I learn more, but, I do remember something several weeks ago where it was reported that in Hua Hin they were going to do Covid tests for Foreigners at about 1500 Baht a time. In that article I am sure I read that a doctor stated treatment would still be free if you were diagnosed as positive. Maybe it was all a dream......:smile:

See my post #136

We need to open soon. The hospitality industry can not go on like this for much longer.

Not sure about the numbers rising in the UK again?

No, they are not, some posters on picking up on figures released after the weekend. They reckon near zero deaths by the end of June.

The UK and USA have never had the situation under control, so not comparable.

@FritsSikkink

New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts have never had it under control.  There are more than 50% of the states that have 9 or less deaths per 100,000 people. Thailand as of yesterday is at 8 deaths per 100,000 people.  As of May 19, only Russia, Norway, Ireland, Portugal, Italy, New Zealand and Australia are reporting more test per 1,000 people than the USA. You're off base to compare the whole USA to other 'countries'.  The Governors of each state have in some cases more control over their USA state than the Presidents of some European nations and even supersede the USA President on many things.  Don't lump Montana or Hawaii in the same class as New York.

Number of positive cases are proportionate to the number of tests conducted. Don’t test any and there wont be many positive cases.

 

There may be some outliers based on the density of population etc.

 

 

Thailand has tested 4099/1million, lower than Dominican Republic. Iraq, Costa Rica, Columbia and Rwanda seems to in the range of thailand in terms of number of tests per million. Number of infections in Costa Rica and Rwanda are 1/4 of thailand, while Columbia has x5 of thailand and Iraq almost same number of infections as Thailand.

 

There was interesting comparision between UK and Sweden in terms of lockdown vs infections. However, big variation in terms of population.

And for many countries the number of tests is equal to the number of people turning up at hospital with symptoms. Less people with symptoms = less tests.

 

Lies, damned lies and statistics.

 

A better statistic but by no means reliable is the number of people dying.

The figure rise on Tuesday's as deaths at home are included from the weekend, then drop back down, do some research!

The death toll RISES EVERY DAY. That’s a fact. The rate of increase is slowing. Research would better be done by you. Facts!

It seems took my comment the wrong way, the amounts are lower on Sunday and Monday, higher on Tuesday with home/care deaths added from the weekend, then the figures settle back again after the midweek blip. Maybe I didn't phrase it correctly. The trajectory is going down, same as most other European countries.
