Checkpoints to remain despite lifting of curfew

Recommended Posts

I think they mean 50% of the people in this she range, who have the virus are asymptomatic, not 50% of the people in this age range are asymptomatic.

 

And exactly how is a road block going to detect an asymptomatic person?

Amazing photograph, a policeman after dark! I honestly don't think I have seen a policeman out after dark (other than the one who makes the rounds of various venues to collect the "informal licencing fees" ) in all the time that I have lived in Chiang Rai.

Same in Chiang Mai close to mid night.

I want the police to get out on the roads and stop the carnage instead of extorting money at checkpoints. I want the military to go back to their barracks and get out if politics. Hope that clears it up.

Ah the checkpoints will be on the rivers then, obviously.......

Many of the checkpoints have been folded up and they've gone home a week ago. Three of them literally vanished in Hua Hin so No need to worry it's just another charade about jobs...

She added that people aged between 20 and 39 need to be particularly careful, as many of them will possibly be asymptomatic...

 

Is this asymptomatic in the sense that they really don't care?

Or don't have any respect for anyone except themselves?

 

Definitely a good word to describe the "I dont care" populus in the LOS...

The way in which so many agencies here work, encapsulated in two words!

but how on earth does a gang of rogue police hassling people in the middle of the night benefit public health?

It doesn't, but it helps the government keep a state of emergency and a grip on the public.

Always been random cash collection, opps checkpoints, try driving from Bangkok to Surin. A few more just means more loose change for those who man them. After all it is LOS and takings must have been quite low these last few months.

Why not?  Gotta keep that knee on the neck of the public lest they become cheeky and begin to demand to be able to travel, assemble, and work as well as to engage in that care-free Thai life-style we are all told is the basis of Thai culture.
