Bars allowed to open sooner if case count stays low

I guess with mass transit trains/buses etc opening with people returning to work bars etc will be the next logical step if infections remain low.

While malls and department stores can maintain social distancing the issues is with bars that's impossible.

But if it works on mass transport with no ill-affects then bars & schools will be next in line.

I'm not sure how many bars will be able to reopen, after months of having no income, but still having to pay rent and other overheads

The reason the cases stay under 10 is because they then only need 1 person to count

The social distancing was difficult when 10 people were trying to count to 100 in the same room

What's the point?

There has never been a vaccine for a coronavirus so locking down indefinitely waiting for a miracle is an exercise in futility

UK is predicting vaccine by September. Already vaccinated 500. Large scale production in progress now. Initially enough doses to vaccinate 30 million Brits and many more in 3rd world countries. I'll be returning to the UK for my vaccination as soon as its available.

General policy for the UK, US and Thailand is to test those entering hospital with symptoms. Same same. The US and UK have far more cases. All three countries are under reporting.

 

I don't know why Thailand has been less affected than other countries (although I have my suspicions) but the fact remains that they have got a grip of the pandemic far more easily than other countries.

In one breath you say they are under reporting. 

 

In the next you state confidence. 

 

Are you then assuming each and every country is under reporting the the EXACT SAME DEGREE?

The latest from Oxford is that the vaccine doesn't stop you getting infected

However it stops you from getting severe symptoms & pneumonia.

To be fair that sounds good enough, but still a lot of testing to do and problems can occur along the way

Bottom line is in Thailand very few in hospital, none in my province, and very few dead.

That report didn't come from the Oxford group, it came from the US and a completely unverified source. Sour grapes? Oxford University have completely debunked the report.

Dozens of bars in Bang Tao. Huge beach and lots of hotels. No more muslim than most of the rest of Phuket.

I think, if you look at the details, that most of the Bang Tao cases were connected to a religious school there

Doesn't matter what people do if Thailand doesn't open its borders. If no one has it, no one can catch it.

 

Hasn't been a single case in Pattaya for a month, none in hospital. It's gone.

Wait until they open the gates and see what happens

Agree completely. Foreign tourists return and its a different ball game. I'll probably go back into self isolation!

bars are the mainstay of tourism and it will help tourism the sooner the bars are opened.

It is no good relying on a temp check at arrival, there are no reported cases in Pattaya because nobody is being tested, i am in the sticks in Issan and nobody know's anybody who has or had but its the asymmetric souls that are the problem
