Thailand is red-lighted in UK for quarantine purposes alongside Brazil, China and US, inexplicable move

absolutely, i have a friend who works for the NHS who confirms this, you can die from all sorts of things but if you happen to have the virus when you die then it's counted as a virus death, explains to some extent the high death rate in the UK.

This sort of vague and loose reporting certainly makes up the numbers to shore up the necessity of lockdown.  

 

Personally, I'm not fooled.  There's also the matter of the 9,000 bed Nightingale hospital that saw no one, though did read a report of two or three people receiving treatment there but I'm still not convinced.

I'm not usually one to engage in conspiracy theories but it seems to me that rarely a week goes by where I don't see at least two articles in the press telling me that five new cases of the virus was detected in returning overseas citizens. Are Thai people overseas unusually unlucky or is this media blitz simply reinforcing the reason why anyone entering the country must have insurance?

Consider this.  On a daily basis, the Thai Government announces additional Thais arriving from international destinations, many of whom have the virus.  Where is the proof that Thailand is doing a good job of controlling these individuals or those who traveled with the affected ones of possibly getting the infection and passing it on.  Don't blame the UK.  I also agree with some of the other assessments of limited testing, etc.  I would expect if there was extensive testing, they would find many asymptomatic cases.

 

On another subject, I doubt if the Russian numbers are valid.  Just too coincidental that the number of cases are about the same every day.

To be fair, Rob, there really wasn't that much bother outside of a few areas when the pubs opened. Don't judge the entire UK by what you have seen any more than one should judge Holland by the action of a few dozen dafties in parts of Amsterdam or Utrecht on a Saturday night. 👍

Oh i was quite dismayed about those dafties in Amsterdam and Utrecht too. But the pics i seen from the UK were far bigger. The opening of the pubs is a major failing.But again its an UK thing to drink like that in pubs. 

 

But I really don't get it that people are still defending the UK. All the BBC articles i post say the same thing worst hit in Europe. So they screwed up but few of you guys are ever willing to admit it. Probably the same guys that want pubs open and everything back to normal in Thailand. 

 

I will wait for say 2-3 weeks to see if i was right about the UK if cases explode again. I can bet you that still nobody will admit their mistakes. I certainly will admit that im wrong if they dont.

Thailand would say:  But all arrivals here to Thailand are placed into a 14 day quarantine and tested no matter what during the 14 day period.  If they test positive they are treated and then released.  So we are doing everything right....

 

That should be the correct response as that is what is happening.  As far as testing the flight crews and sanitizing the airplane I have no clue.

All the deniers are out in force. I posted articles from the BBC where they compared a normal years death rate with that of now. It shows 10k more above what is reported for COVID.  So its even worse then reported. Yet the covid deniers hate facts.

But the Chinese managed to spread it into Italy and started off the chain of events which is still unfolding. It only needed a few Chinese to spread it and they did.

Of course in your xenophobic mind it there was no possibility of infected Italians returning from China, as was the case in Iran.

It was someone that had been to HK that infected a party in BKK, and it was someone who had been to Singapore that brought the first cases to France and the UK, but the narrow minded only have eyes for the Chinese.

I have no problem with Brit folk Trans, Brit folk have a problem with facts. If you compare the deaths in the UK with those in the Netherlands there is about a 40% LESS in the Netherlands (adjusted for population size) using the same methods  from the same source. IF that does not show the Brits messed up what does.

 

Brits are lousy at taking criticism it seems. You are one of them instead of admitting it you are saying I have a problem with Brits. 

 

Not sure why i would have a problem with Brits just because I point out their failings and show how they bash Thais but don't have their own house in order.

 

I do the same for the US and if there is bad News about the Netherlands too. I guess your kind is a bit more sensitive maybe because you guys are more nationalistic. 

You missed my......."Not only on this thread".....

 

In that post you say..."Brits are lousy at taking criticism", that is a blanket assumption, again, a pop at Brits...

I am off topic, sorry.....🤫

Nothing at all to do with the post I was responding to and the current situation with testing now.

Of course it has, you tried to make out that the UK had not mislead the public.

I can see why my Belgian friends think their neighbours are arrogant.

 

 

More inaccurate assumptions in that post than a prude's judgement of a Pattaya whoremonger

I think this topic and all the flack i got proves it. But if that is the worst of the insults Trans then you really should get a bit of a ticker skin. The things i seen you say about Thais are 10 times worse then what i just said about Brits.

Could you go against the facts then please, and I don't mind being called arrogant. That is the difference i guess i can take criticism.

I was responding to a post that claimed among other things that the UK had stopped publishing its testing figures, that is clearly not the case https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/ and https://coronavirus-staging.data.gov.uk/
