Don't they have to? Social score system.

Any freedom loving person is horrified by this system. Nobody understands why the Chinese follow their oppressors so passionately under the guise of nationalism.

 

still in beta testing i believe, only functional in certain localities.  it's supposed to go nationwide sometime this year, maybe.  scary!  but i wonder if it could be compared to our western experian credit score merged with the social media cancel culture?  experiean says you can't get a loan, and the facebook mob can get you fired, deplatformed, and unpersoned.

 

you misunderstand the chinese.  they mostly ignore the laws unless forced to comply.  that's why you see so many videos of chengguan (sorta like municipal police auxiliary) impounding street vendor carts and clearing sidewalks.  for the big stuff, they don't protest, as there as so many still around who survived the cultural revolution.  they mostly prefer a little minor oppression to major upheaval and chaos.

Well they will need to keep Thailand closed forever, no vaccine will be developed ... dam they still have no vaccine for SARS..  Your comment suggests you support the entire collapse of the planet Earth as we know it with the death of millions due to fear mongering ...How irresponsible you are ... please think before you decide to make such rash statements. ... 

Did you forget to take your optimism pill today?

If they don't protest the big stuff, do they really only get minor oppression?

i still dont get it. Whats with the constant China bashing? China has covid under control (unlike the usa). And China is a neighbour of Thailand, with long stable good relations, and lets not forget the many Chinese immigrants who integrated and helped Thailand grow economically (oh what a difference with the cynical farang immigrants..) 

 

Its only natural and fair and common sense thatChina would be included.

 

The current anti China sentiments are basically a war drumbeat from global bully nr 1 usa who cant handle competition from China instead tries to warmonger other western countries in an unfounded Anti China sentiment.

Pathetic. 

Um, I think you and Traubert are the only ones in here who seem to trust China's reports and handling of the pandemic. Even Steven100 in his fever of constant glowing praise for the PM seems skeptical that allowing the Chinese in is a good idea.

what requirements are ludicrous, other than 14-day quarantines?  if we're talking covid19 test and 100k insurance, those are just minor inconveniences.  limited travel zones are also not really important for chinese tourists.

 

You obviously didn't read any of the details and posts on the travel bubble proposals.

No point in wasting my time telling you. Go look for yourself.

If the infections are increasing but morbidly is not then the virus is evolving for it's own survival, see: The D614G mutation of SARS-Co-2 Spike Protein. The replacement of aspartic acid by glycine at amino acid position 614 on the spike protein enables the virus to bind more easily to the host receptor, ACE2 . (via protein salt bridge)

 

From what I've read on that, the mutation you're talking about supposedly is one that allows the virus to more rapidly, efficiently spread through the cells in the host body. But supposedly, that characteristic doesn't necessarily make the virus itself more contagious on a person to person basis. Again, I think the study of that issue remains an evolving subject.

You need to chance your username because you are no genius.

 

Flu mortality is on average 0.01% Corona virus Mortality varies depending on geographical location but on average is considered to be in the region of 3.5% (although it could be lower). Many of those who serve have long term complications including Renal failure and/or diabetes. Hardly comparable to seasonal flu!

Most credible sources are saying the ifr is much less than 3.5% cfr of confirmed cases. The ifr is in the range of .026% to 1.4% although some believe it is lower. Certainly people with serious cases can have more serious long term complications.

You are scary.

 

By the way I know China for 30 years traveling there and I know most don't care (at least they don't tell a foreigner). They are so used to oppression they even believe it is a superior system.

I have lived in Pattaya 5/6 years so a relative newby, currently stuck in the U.K., I have witnessed the decline in the number of farangs who come year on year to Pattaya  Some only come for 4 weeks now Not a couple of months some not at all so unless the Thai Government relax the conditions for entering there will be loads of tumbleweeds rolling down the sois in many places not just Pattaya. I would have thought the brewing industry/food producers would be bringing pressure on the government to relax the current rules as it must be crippling their sales ?
