25-30% loss of your economy is going to hurt badly. 

 

Dayam, would be like London or New York closing it financial centres. 

 

Tests at airports is the simple solution.

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

 

Way to go ezzra!

 

Agreed. Ezzra gets it. If we are going to get beyond this as a species, we all need to contract this virus so we can develop herd immunity and get beyond this lockdown foolishness. No sense in putting it off.

 

The faster everyone gets sick, the faster we can get back to reality.  Very few people will actually die from this virus relative to the deaths that are going to come from the economic and social blowback of this stupid lockdown and containment approach we have taken.

 

Just make sure the health facilities are not overwhelmed and open up. Only reintroduce restrictions if the medical resources start to buckle under the strain.

Can someone please remind me how many people have died in total from Wuhan Flu in Thailand, and how many people died yesterday in car/motorbike accidents in Thailand?

Probably about the same.......🤔

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. 

 

 

a big ratio in the UK are ethnic cases but its not known why ,quite apart from care homes

Hopefully that situation will be warning for many people who want to retire here and try to build life. Before your girlfriend /wife can betray you. Ok . Can accept and move on. Have some money not big problem if people learn from one case. But when government try to betray you. Then no chance to move furthermore. Why betray. Look your self. People who buy elite visa for big money. What happen to then now? And much more no needs to explain. Everyone knows.

In the same boat. I must travel from Thailand to the U.S. in the near future for family matters. Right now, looks like I will not be able to return for some time

 

Same here.

 

My concern re this "fourth quarter' business is that by then the US will quite likely be having its second wave.  So I would not bank on being able to travel then. If things do open up, go as quickly as possible is my plan in hopes of getting back before second wave is noticeable

Dutch husband (I know, but try to keep up), and on just her second visit there she is allowed to stay in that country with a five-year visa. Just a little bit different to Thai rules

Just as well for her that the Dutch husband is not Australian husband

If Songkran does go ahead as stated from 4th to 9th of July, then I can be assured that there will be no bars open before then and an alcohol ban will be re-imposed to ensure that the number of deaths on the road will be vastly reduced as happened in the week from 12 - 17 April 2020 :-)
