The EP and International schools can’t even get any teachers....so how are they gonna open? 
Government schools have captive WF ....scary 

No idea about EP schools but the international schools are fine and ready to go as soon as they are allowed.  My school is in from Monday making preparations, teachers fully stocked.  All the int schools have been teaching online from Thailand since the lockdown

there is no evidence that people retain enough antibodies to become immune to this 

There is also no evidence that it will not happen. It's much more likely for it to behave like other diseases of its ilk than not, and will confer short term, 1 to 3 years immunity.

Temples, churches, and Mosques are still closed and I don't see them on the list?
Must be up there with pubs and bars as highly dangerous.

I am afraid that people started already their own phases. Yesterday at around 8 in the evening at the Tree Town area in Soi Buakhao here in Pattaya - very many hookers standing around without masks (many ladymen), many other people without masks, people with beer bottles sitting around and walking around with their bottles in the hand, people sitting close together in restaurants, etc. At the beginning of the crises I had a bad feeling running around without a mask. Yesterday there I felt the first time stupid to walk around with a mask. 

 

And your point is?

You have to admire the sexy bodies and sartorial elegance, the deportment, the smiling faces and general joie de vivre.

You need to ignore the foreground and look at the striped bikini in the background to the right. It will help you recover from the shock.

And what is this area?

 

An area where you can travel freely back and forth to other provinces, where hotels are open with their pools and restaurants, where movie theaters and entertainment places are open, schools are open, in short where life is back to normal???

 

Almost. I am now staying at Rayong. My hotel pool is open since 17/May. Nearby beach is open with usual beach chairs and swimmers. Restaurants are all open. It is only 3 hours drive from Bangkok. No check points along the way to and from Bangkok.

On the one hand they are extremely strict like on the beach and somehow strict like in malls and obviously not strict at all like yesterday evening seen in Soi Buakhao where the people don't have to care much about regulations and laws. Doesn't make sense to me.

Use the ignore list. I did.

Finding any good CCP propaganda in there?

 

It's obvious schools are a prime spot for community transmission. That's why they are closed.

 

I get it, people are starting to get cabin fever, they desperately want to get it over with, some even have enough integrity to say ok, it'll cost but can't keep it closed either.

 

The reason why I point this out all the time is because people are being lulled into false sense of security. And then it'll be again a knee-jerk lockdown because of it. Rinse and repeat. Unless an effective test & tracing network is built, but usurpers seem incapable. To me it looks like Thailand has capable doctors, but their efforts and wishes are being blocked by the "government" that drives their own corrupt political agendas. That's what will cause the coup-like never ending cycle of lockdowns.

 

I'll also put this here, again: https://medium.com/@tomaspueyo/coronavirus-learning-how-to-dance-b8420170203e

Back to square one.

 

Those pining for herd immunity might want to read the latest in Sweden and Spain. Only around 5-10% tested positive for antibodies and you need 60-70%. It's a long way from over. Spanish flu took 15 months, we're looking at same sort of timelines for this one.

To be fair, it doesn't make sense anywhere in the world. 

 

In Western Europe, for example, they reopen, schools included, after months of hard lockdown... even though their numbers are still high, far higher than in Thailand and East Asia in general. 

 

The truth is that the governments are slowly waking up and becoming aware of the economic disaster they have brought upon their countries... so they reopen with the same numbers that led them to close everything two months ago... go figure... 

 

Meanwhile, Thailand is again doing its best to show that it is "not same", coming up with rules seen nowhere else, just for the sake of it (beaches closed but malls open, gyms where one can use free weights but not machines, schools closed until July, restaurants open but not authorized to serve alcohol, people packed together in the BTS but having to eat at separate tables or behind a screen...)
