If the numbers are true at single digit or zero cases why is the emergency still needed unless the numbers arent correct . 

Because this is not about the numbers or the virus, this is about control and the government are seeing how far they can push people before they start to push back. In reality, there is no virus relat

In the words of Sir John Dalberg-Acton "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

Seems like Life is almost back to normal, except for the massage shops,

bars and kareokes.  The complainers must mostly be patrons of those

establishments.

Not really - a lot of people like to go out for a meal and wash it down with a glass of wine/bottle of beer/G&T! So where is the logic of the "booze ban'?

They have been showing on TV news and in the news papers for weeks. Massive cues for food...

 

Didn't know you could get "massive" cues? Maybe that's why I can' t make more than a 30 break (on a good day!)

Almost no virus deaths within Thailand (around fifty in almost 5 months) and no new virus cases.
The external borders are tight. Whoever comes in, will be tested and quarantined for 14 days.
So why is the entire population held in an emergency? With curfew, ban on meetings and travel restrictions? Many are still not allowed to work and no beer / wine for dinner. All this order and law suppression is striking. And there's an incredible rage of data collection going on.
Thailand means Land of the free, unfortunately its gone. And unfortunately you don't hear any Thais questioning the overregulation/overcontroll loudly in Parliament or in the media.

I've been thinking this is the reason why they keep the emergency decree, keep the opposition quiet and repressed.

Of course, it was never about the virus. Songkran would have seen people congregating and planning protests. Why still have a curfew and no alcohol with a meal in a restaurant, control.

Well I have kept my staff on salary  but not for another month. More Thais out of work. I will gut the place and turn it into a garage. Well done

That is what I have been thinking for a long time

Because a handful of cases becomes 100's very quickly when no restrictions are in place.

why indeed? though do you honesty believe the government statistics are 100% true and accurate? with no mass testing done, and non planned, the authorities have no idea of the level of infection or number of deaths.

 

compared the track and trace initiatives in say, korea and the uk, to what is being done in thailand and it's immediately clear at best it is an ineffective pr stunt, at worst a joke.

 

the government knows it has no idea of the scale of the problem and has no effective measures in place to respond to the crisis, therefore they have to keep restrictions in place.

 

any western country that had the statistics thailand has been reporting would be close to opening up completely.

While everyone seems to make jokes about the government here, the fact of the matter is they aren't stupid. They know full well how the testing is being conducted, so they also would know that there could be thousands of infected folks out there that are falling through the cracks. Not to mention they have already determined that the flu strain that came from China was not as infectious as the mutated one that came out of Italy and made it's way to the U.S.. The last thing they need is for the much more infectious strain to make it's way here, so it would probably be best to keep the screws turned for a while longer. If they were really smart, they would forget about loosening anything at least until the end of the year. That would definitely destroy their economy, although an argument could be made that it has already happened but it would be better than a massive spread that clearly the hospitals here could not handle.

So riddle me this, if there are so many infections going about, why aren't these thousands that you speak about coming forward? Are they all asymptomatic, or are there not thousands of infected people still about?  If there were thousands infected walking about that were feeling any symptoms, some of them would have checked into hospital, correct?
