Following the sharp fall in the number of new Covid-19 cases and the gradual relaxation of lockdown measures, most people’s concerns about the pandemic have eased but they want the government to monitor the situation and help the affected people, according to a Suan Dusit poll.

 

The poll about "The lives of people after the relaxation of the Covid-19 measures” surveyed 1,109 people between July 1- 4.

 

Suan Dusit found that most of people's concerns about Covid-19 had eased (52.93 per cent). Some 39.40 per cent of respondents are hopeful Thailand will return to normalcy by the end of 2020; 94.77 per cent think they are helping to control the situation by wearing a mask and 88.19 per cent believe they are helping by frequently washing their hands.

 

As the virus situation gets better, 77.5 per cent of people want the government to remain vigilant about the situation, while 71.78 per cent want measures to help people who are continuously affected.

Thailand's testing rate for people here was only one tenth of one percent so I have read. This being the case it does not show the true rate of infection of

people in Thailand , naturally doing this the Thailand government can say they are nearly virus free with little testing for the virus.

I must commend you. obviously You are willing to sacrifice Your elders, The Health Impaired and the very young. Good Attitude Survival of the Fittest. I am Sure that Adolph and His supermen would pin Medals on You and your ilk. Personally i am for restricted Borders, Social distancing. In New Zealand We atm no Community spread and Incoming Quarantined. Some say the Bill is Already NZ$80,000 per Kiwi. Personally if My Bill is $1M and We protect Our Most vulnerable it is worth it. My 7 day old Grandson is priceless. How much would you sell your Family for $1

Totally agree!

I don't think the economic impact has been anywhere near fully realized in Thailand yet. It will though, sadly. 

More trouble ahead than has been behind, many businesses are in trouble, not just the entertainment side of things, the tourism industry is in tatters this year, the economy is in tatters, exports are finding it harder to be competitive. The Pm will have no excuses soon, six years in the hot seat and achieved nothing for the country.

The country should focus on traffic and the road. Stop letting these crazy drivers kill people.  Safe roads please.  Keep the beach's clean and keep tourist safe from scams!!  

Now let's go back to having safe fun and making money  😉

I am one of those "in danger" but just reading in the British newspapers how many have died because operations have been cancelled etc and the fact that it is going to take years to get heart operations or cancer scans,how many will die through all this ? 

pesonally here and for my family in the UK its been good as they have made far more money there because of the lockdown so more internet clients ,and our son here has just had a pay rise as the  company he runs has done more business and its owner who lives abroad cannot visit ,so our son has extra responsability. as for us ,we just carry on pretty much as normal ,just no tourists ,so much easier to park,shop,etc etc.

schools were open for 3 days already... so where is the second wave and the massive hospital invasion ?  nahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

My kid only went to school for 1 day.

Then it was the extended weekend holiday.

 

As for money, COVID has saved me a fortune, no university fees, no school fees, no restaurant bills for me and the misses, no whoring holidays in Cambodia, and a reduced water and electricity bill.
