Like i said, they had 1600 cases yesterday. That is a stark difference to your claim they had 10,000 - which is false. They have never had anywhere 10,000 infections a day, which is a gross exaggerated lie. 

 

As i said the UK has carried out nearly 5 million tests on the population, with them now ramping up to 200,000 a day. Antibody tests rolling out next week. Thailand meanwhile has only carried out 400,000 tests in total, and zero antibody tests. Both similar populations sizes.

 

The UK rate is also high because of the problems they have had in care homes for the elderly. 

 

That's why no one can really be sure how many people in Thailand actually had the disease. But it's fair to say it's has not succumbed to the pandemic like many European countries. Be it luck, climate, health of the population (namely weight issues), density of the cities they have done well. 

 

 

yep we dont know why, but its more likely good luck than anything top dod with Government policy. Vietnam didn't fully lockdown ...no deaths, similar result in Cambodia. Seems like SE Asia got out of this almost unscathed. But Thailand is determined to make up for that by ruining the economy and many thousands of lives.

But they are planning for Songkran to be held in july? What would happen if massive amounts of (drunk) people would flock together ? Do they expect it will not breakout again?

 

Per the news reports of the last two weeks, seems that there isn't any Covid 19 in Thailand other than in the recently returned from other countries (and those people are still in quarantine). So, we're safe. Also, per the reports, it didn't really break out her the first time.

Meaning that the Thai tourism industry will continue to be in the crapper and millions who depends on it for their survival will continue to suffer and lose their life's works and investments witch will take years to recover from, way to go PM...

 

Or they could open the borders. allow in any tourists, and have the same sort of figures the UK enjoy.

 

Way to go ezzra!

Very, very bad for a people who have houses and wife's or truthfull girlfriends here. Some people like me need to work in Europe for 3 month period per year in order to maintain qualification and own some pension point.

I lease  a land for 30'years build nice house  got a dogs exclusive parrots fish and much more. Look like my efforts were not 100 procent safe. Stay in Thailand 8 months on multi tourist visa stay in Europe 3-4 months.

What will happen now if they put restrictions that tourists must stay in certain places like phuket Arabi and samui.

The yellow book become useless.  The land on lease and house in issan useless.

Even people who but elite visa will be not much of use tourist must stay in certain places untill vaccine is found😣😕😕

Why would they do it??. More controller over people. No criticism. Chinese tourist never mix themselves in politics. Maybe that's why. Find good reason to block European. Corona virus gave good opportunity

Before I thought to buy elite visa  when thai baht was low and Norwegian money hight. Lucky did not do it. Pay 20.000.000 for 20 years and stay under restrictions in phuket krabi samui. Good choice?
