Recommended Posts

Oh! By the way, the governemnt will immediately invite 10,000,000 Chinese back to Thailand as soon as the restrictions are lifted. Maybe the government should update its info. China has another outbreak on its boarder with Russia and has locked down 100,000,000 Chinese just a weeks ago......WELCOME BACK CHINA! THAILAND LOVES YOU!!!

The emergency Decree is not directly related to curfew, alcohol bans, bar closures 

it just gives them the power to do so.

so no glass of wine with dinner yet? 

No clear announcement about travel restrictions?

 

on a positive note one of my favorite hotels in Bangkok say they are opening on June 1st.  

 

Have a look at the Bangkok traffic, it is back to normal, nearly! People everywhere its great and sensible, ZERO deaths and a single case once a week or so, is no longer an emergency !!!! The curfew is ridiculous !!!

There are only 2 groups of businesses out of the 4 that have been opened and there is a 14 day window between each group to ensure that if there is a spike in cases then it can be quickly controlled. Group 3 is due to open on 1st June and group 4 to open on 15th June. The emergency is not over until all businesses are open and operating as normal and there are no spikes in the numbers of confirmed cases.  Remember the bars, cinemas, karaoke bars, massage shops etc are still not opened and operating and nothing will be clear until the end of June

1,000 Thais returned from overseas in the last two days. Some of them will be found to be positive. Not all of them obey the isolation rules.

It is still out there - just in smaller numbers.

Pray tell what this emergency decree is good for concerning those returned Thais who would(!) be positive and not found and for sure not respect any rule... To impose quarantine or other restrictions on returnees(!), no emergency decree is needed.

Do you seriously think the emergency decree can have any, positive, influence on the Corrona virus still being out there, ...and to stay as proclamed by all bona fide medical instances, and if so what that positive influence could be according to you?

Or are you just one of the lemming followers of the military dictator(s)?

Why have proposals and why have votes when the outcome we all know is pre-determined. Why even announce the result when we all know what it will be. This guy will do everything he can to keep his boot on the throats of his people, power hungry doesn't even begin to describe him

Why?

1) Because there are millions of Thais swallowing the hook and the line, as they have been beaten to pulp for many generations to accept pure bull as the truth;

2) Because even other millions of Thais who deeply (like in hidden deeply...) oppose the military dictatorship are like overcooked rice needles in the, erm, "energy" (not) to come up against it, ...as they have been beaten to pulp for many generations not to oppose the medieval powers still abusing of them!

Im ready to come back to Thailand I have a wife their.

I don't understand that they don't open up a window to let someone like that come in.

If they find it necessarily to ask for a test, and for 14 days isolation, then do that, but no need for banning them from coming.

Thailand to extend coronavirus emergency to end of June

BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand will maintain its state of emergency over the coronavirus until the end of June, its COVID-19 task force said on Friday, in an effort to keep infections under control as the government prepares to ease restrictions further.

 

Shopping malls and department stores reopened at the weekend after almost two months of closure as the number of cases slowed, but bars, nightclubs, cinemas, playgrounds and some sports remain off-limits.

 

The government's Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) proposed the extension in response to developments with the global pandemic and to allow time to prepare for further easing at the start of next month.

 

"The reason for extending the emergency decree for one more month is health security, enabling a unified and continued operation by officials in a pandemic situation that has not been resolved," said CCSA spokesman Taweesin Wisanuyothin.

 

The extension is subject to Cabinet approval on Tuesday.

 

The government has extended a ban on international passenger flights, which has been in place since April, until the end of June. Schools remain closed and are scheduled to reopen in July.

 

Thailand has been recording daily infections in single digits for most of the past month and on Friday reported no new coronavirus infections or deaths.

 

Its total confirmed cases are 3,037, of which 56 were fatalities, with 2,910 recoveries.
