Points for the longest sentence ever though.

 

Probably bought a bad Chinese takeaway last night and is suffering for it now. We've all been there.

 

 

Fair point. I always wondered how dispeptics look in print.

I see a lot of posts ranting about how should be allowed in first.  The truth of matter is that I do not see any foreign is coming to Thailand starting on July 1.  Thailand need to act fast.  Otherwise, it is going to lose out to Vietnam. 

 

I am thinking about going to Vietnam as the country is going to open up on July 1.  i have not seen too much restrictions: 80 countries are on the list to be allowed in.

 

Anyway,  Thailand had better open up soon.  Any foreigner in is better than no foreigner.  Thai tourism biz is dying and many poor people here need some income to carry on with their life.

you might not, but those millions of zero-dollar tourists that may soon be flooding back to pattaya and phuket do!

 

if china can do testing, other nations certainly can as well.  didn't trump recently say america was winning on testing?  haven't we seen drive-thru testing centers in the usa?  i think austria is offering 3-hour tests for arrivals to circumvent 14-day quarantine, and emirates requires pre-boarding covid testing.  there may be other examples.

 

there might not be testing where you are NOW, but once countries start to open up, and flights are back on schedule, there WILL be tests available.  you don't think some enterprising company will take the first opportunity to open while-you-wait testing booths at shopping malls and air terminals?

hope you're right

Yes, you are right...they will not open to western countries, except maybe Australia and New Zealand and some other who have the virus under control.

Look at the fools in Europe and the US. It is a mess...many people are just selfish and reckless. They even don't want to wear a mask to protect others. I am very disappointed about my own compatriots and all the other western countries. Asia will become the strongest region of the world in future. Good night US..good night Europe. 

In Switzerland there hasn't been a general mask mandatory. Nevertheless, the number of infections has decreased to the same extent as in countries that require a mask. Masks can lead to a wrong feeling of safety and therefore to a wrong behaviour.  It does not mean masks are useless, it means masks are only useful under certain circumstances.

All I have seen is that Vietnam will issue visas to some groups of foreigners in July.

The articles did not specify the entry requirements as covid tests, quarantine etc.

 

I would love Vietnam to open up too or any other SEA country, because I need alternatives if Thailand does not open up. Lets wait and see if that really happens.

China had 84,000 cases of which 79,900 recovered. Surprisingly because they do as they are told.

 

Try and get over the word 'communist.' China has been capitalist since it took all your industry.

 

Anyway, why should you even care? You dont live in Thailand any more as you gleefully told us

 

Do you honestly believe any news coming out of Communist China?

 

Is it the Peoples Republic of China. Get it? Communist is every sense of the word.

 

If you believe the Chinese authorities, the country’s battle against the novel coronavirus is all but won. But that claim is clouded by a fog of skewed data, political imperatives—and unreported cases and possibly deaths.   time.com

 

Why do you care, what I care?

Never mind the Chinese think of your own people, July is way too early as it is still not safe to fully open the country from the inside or so we are informed by the government, therefore how is it possible to be ready to take on tourists from outside the country within four weeks.....????

Then you really don't know the Thai's. They will sell their soul for a profit.

 

Money talks!

McCarthy and reds under the beds is so last millennium. Get over your obsession that communist countries are all bad.

Who said they are bad?

 

We are talking about China, don't make up more stories.

 

Here it is again:

So, he wants to let people in from China, a country that recently declared germ warfare on the rest of the World; obviously a highly principled man  ¯\_()_/¯

this would be the biggest mistake they can make... currently the new cases are happening with those quarantined after coming back from another country.

 

with the virus being under control here for a few months, letting people in from countries where the virus is still very active will just lead to more cases and renewed shutdown

which ones ?? can he provide a detailed list whom has it under control (not China,S Korea or Japan with some new cases) maybe Taiwan but that would not help much

Vietnam has had no reported case in the native population for 45 days.

(Meaning they've gotten a few while repatriating during that period, but they quarantine all when returning and there's been no spread from the infected).

This goose mentions China to be one of the Countries to be let in.

This disease started there and they kept it to themselves for well over a month.

$$$ talks and this tourism goose will get fatter

rant over
