Transport Ministry reported on Wednesday (July 8 ) that more than 9 million people had taken public transport during the July 4-7 long weekend.

 

The report said the number of people using public transport was 15.34 per cent higher than the same period last year, with more than 1 million travelling to other provinces, 629,004 travelling within provinces and more than 7 million travelling to Bangkok.

 

Also, more than 11 million personal vehicles were driven out of the capital, with more than 5 million opting for highways and the remainder using tollways.

 

During the holiday period, 369 road accidents were recorded, with 56 killed and 369 people injured. Of the vehicles involved in the accidents, 35.55 per cent were pick-up trucks, and most crashes, or 71.54 per cent, were caused by speeding. The most accidents were in Chonburi at 34.

Its way to early to be boasting about no infections when the incubation period is 14-21 days . Any misplaced loss of fear is a <deleted> shoot we will just have to wait and see .

44 days with no local infections, so where is it going to come from?

the many asymptomatic people that we are being told over and over that are just waiting to infect those unwary enough to go mask-free or sit next to each other.

 

of course, using the lack of new cases as evidence of an amount of asymptomatic folks means the the social distancing and mask regime can never end.....
