I see his point.

It's becoming a paintball island. Drop 200 tourists on the island all by themselves (nobody else). Let them have fun for 2 weeks...

Drop a few donasours in from gov house and beam down Predator. Prawit can keep a time on the games

Another brain dead idea. Most people I know who have been visiting Thailand would like to stay a few days in Bangkok. Especially when having a long overseas flight.

Also, how to get the tourists to Islands who don't have an airport?

By transporting them like infected cattle in buses with police escort?

Also, I guess these nasty reservoirs of infection will need to be isolated from others after arrival, passage through immigration and customs, and baggage claim. Are they rebuilding Suvarnabhumi to accommodate this?

You usually take a bus to get to an island? 

 

Phuket and Samui both have airports. There is regular ferry service to Tao, Phangan and Phi Phi from these islands. Just like you would get there before this happened. Best to engage brain before speaking...

You can take a ferry from Bangkok? Best take your own advice.

Hazmat suits when off the plane and escorted by the BIB to the next plane. Then get ripped off at the islands and find most places are closed.

Honestly more curious about the EU now opening up to Thailand, and if they will do the same to the EU.

@reallyaffiliatedYeah I can’t work out if thais will be ok to leave the country and return if they can find flights ?

Glad I am heading from Bangkok to Cape Panwa in Phuket next week for a 10 day stay with the GF at a nice private 5 star resort that is all inclusive and we never need to leave the property.  Last time we went it was very nice and even though it was last high season there were very few tourists.

Sounds great ,  Cape Panwa Hotel  , just viewed it , beautiful location and classy hotel , I am not  jealous 🤥

 12 persons in 100 DEAD you trying to convince me they all had some preexisting condition. But keep posting that dribble it’s good for a laugh.

Yes Sweden is bad, but don't dribble yourself as well please : Death rate in Sweden is 7% of all registered cases. As usual we don't know the untested ones so the real rate is lower than 7%. As of yesterday 200 new cases and 12 deaths on 30th of June.

Median age of Covid death in Europe is 83 years old.

 

Median age of Covid death in USA is 82 years old

 

The disease has no serious medical implications for over 99% of the worlds population.  Do we shut down for the 1% ?

 

As Covid deaths go past 500,000 and slowly rise - REMEMBER - Tuberculosis kills circa 2 MILLION people every year.   Influenza kills circa 650,000 people every year.

 

Facts that too many people are so willing to ignore to ramp up fear.   And both of those death rates are WITH vaccine.........were there no TB vaccine and no Flu vaccine its likely combined they would be killing upwards of 5 MILLION a year.

 

A few days ago the headlines were 2nd wave in China, 2nd wave in Korea....................now thats not happened they all are quiet again.  The media is driving the fear, the reality is very different.
