So what happens if there's an outbreak and your on the ThaiChana list?
1. Do you get a free COVID19 test?
2. Get ordered to self quarantine?

3. Get sent into State quarantine?
Not mention about this yet but I guess State Quarantine as it's a nice little earner!

1: You will get a text message (SMS) that you can use to get a free COVID-19 test.

So if I have Line and a data plan then there is no need for me download the ThaiChana app.  Is that correct?

Yes, that's correct.

I hope they're doing at better job than at Big C in Udon.

 

Leaving the house, I genuinely forgot to take my mask. Arrived at Big C, girl at check-in said 'no mask'. I told her I'd forgotten it, and asked if there a shop selling them?

She pointed to a drinks stall outside. Bought a new cloth one for 25 Baht and went in to Big C.

 

I was asked for my mobile phone. Said I didn't have one.

It was a lie, but my battery was very low and I was worried it would die while scanning, entering info, etc. Thought it would be easier to 'sign in'.

Another girl wanted me to write my details. The first girl said to the second girl that I'd been scanned already, and I was allowed to pass.

I have absolutely no idea why the first girl said that. As we say here, "Up to them."

 

Out of interest, I see Peterdk said after scanning, that you are taken to a website to 'check-in'.

Does the website access your mobile to read your mobile number automatically, or do you need to type it in yourself each time?

 

The first time you check in, you type your phone number yourself. On subsequent check-ins it will not ask for a phone number (it probably sets a cookie the first time).

Darwin will take care of those scribbling down Micky mouse and a fake number. With a bit of luck removal from the gene pool may occur

ok so lets see. 10 000 farang sign a day times 9 carry the 4 then subtract 1/4 and you end up with you sound super strange.

 

less than 70 people have died in thailand from the scary wuwu. darwin just called me and said he wants to sue you for misrepresenting his theory.

At Big C Extra Pattaya I've seen a few falang just walk in and out without using the QR code or using the book, staff don't stop them. They will probably get stricter soon

or just forget about the whole thing in two or three weeks like normal.

ThaiChana has little to do with the need to identify corona infections. rather, it is the first step in the complete surveillance of people. In my opinion, the proof is given that you have to register again in every single store in a shopping center. This is not a prevention, but a further step towards controlling and restricting personal freedom.

isn't that simply proof of a badly designed/developed app? surely a well designed app would not require the same data being input multiple times?

 

another couple of questions;

 

who is inputting the data collected by pen and paper? - and who is checking this is being done?

 

who is doing all the tracing?

I noted where Mr. Bean and Queen Elizabeth had signed in before me.

I was in and out of Siam Paragon this afternoon...

 

They had the QR code signs up for scanning to sign in and out at all the entrances I saw. But the mall staff manning those seemed very typically lakadaisical, and lots of Thais were walking in and out and totally ignoring the checkin-out function.

I have noticed that Thai people are pretty good at dealing with rules that make no sense.
