But, there again, Western nations such as France and the UK who have, in effect, placed residents on indefinite house arrest should, on the other hand, be fulsomely praised to the very highest heavens as being the best thing since sliced bread in your eyes, shouldn't they?

This is Thailand, not the UK, France, etc.

To a certain extent the decision is correct. However, we HAVE to begin resuming normal life and cannot hide away from this virus.

There is no such thing as Covid-19 it's just a strain of seasonal flu as shown by all of the independent doctors and virologists speaking out over the last month.

 

The figures point to it being even less dangerous than common flu with less deaths than a common seasonal flu around the world.

We have all been fooled folks, it's not a complete hoax but it sure has been blown waaaay out of proportion - ask yourself, are we going to do this again when next year's seasonal flu comes around ?? Are people really that stupid ? Use your grey cells.

 

Wonder what this is really all about - anyone have any ideas?

Now THERE’S a first ( for me at least) , a conspiracy theorist asking everyone what the conspiracy is???? Get a grip, buckle down, do your time, this is by no means a hardship posting for lockdown. Count your blessings, would you rather  be standing outside number ten protesting Dominic’s guilt or lying by your pool with the sun on your back sipping a cold one?

This is quite frustrating. I have a signed work contract to teach math in a state school from July 1st. I am like all teachers, suffering with loss of income. It will soon get to a point that I wont have the finances to fly to Thailand to take this job...

I cannot understand that if the virus is only within returnees. A state quarantine program is the best. I for one am happy to undertake this.

Moreover, most people in other countries are also in lockdown and as europe is opening up we are healthy and ready to travel and work.

 

If you are so concerned about the loss of income, why come to Thailand to teach

There are better paying places in the world

I don't understand the whinging. I am retired here. Yes, the lock down kept me out of the bars, kept me of the golf course. Couldn't fish. Didn't see friends as much. But I am alive and healthy. 

Would you accept to be jailed, even if you had done nothing wrong, if in return it would extend your life?

Sorry mate, couldn't find the LOL/Thanks button.

I know the stance Thailand has taken isn’t popular and it’s caused me no end of grief too but they appear to have fared better than many far wealthier and supposedly brighter western countries.

absolutely correct
