Government Urges People Not to Lower Guard

BANGKOK, July 11 (TNA) -- The government asked people not to lower their guard against the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) as a survey showed they compromised their protection.

 

Deputy government spokesperson Traisulee Traisoranakul said the Public Health Ministry found from its survey that people were worried about the possible second spread of COVID-19 but believed that the government would contain it. The survey also found that people were less serious about protecting themselves from possible infection.

 

Although the local COVID-19 situation improved, the pandemic remained critical in many other countries. Unless people seriously protected themselves, the second spread of COVID-19 could happen in the country and have impacts in many dimensions, Ms Traisulee said.

And to wear the mask properly at all times.

But it’s OK for the likes of the BTS to urge people to lower their guard by cramming them in like sardines.

A hopeless task I've signed on for is attempting to tell people that putting mask on chin temporarily is INSANE.

IF the virus is about, it will get all over you: it is more like spray paint than smart missiles. It will land on your chin, among other places.

So you mop up the virus off your chin and then suck it in through your nose and/or mouth.

Think a bit people. IF there is no virus around, then it won't matter. I don't trust the government figures with my life. If I am wrong and there is no virus here, I will suffer slight inconvenience of wearing a mask. If I am right that there is more than they admit, then maybe, just maybe, that inconvenience of a mask will be worth avoiding a ventilator and all that

MRT is looking the same.  Spent yesterday walking to where we needed to go instead of public transport, and of course very few folks out and about wearing masks as well.  No social distance in the restaurants we walked by, a 4 person table was jammed with 6 people, and the bars near us are also filled with no room once again. I had to rebook a flight to Phuket because Air Asia canceled the flight due to Covid they claimed, so instead I booked with my flight on Bangkok airways, when it came to seat selection it looks like all seats are being used without any social distance seating.

Do you believe a mask stops this? N95 masks are designed to make exhalation easy as they are designed for breathing "in" contaminated air. The particle size of "virus passes straight through! Guess if you want to kid yourself that what you can't see wont effect you, your either kidding yourself or listening to BS.

Have not observed it to look like that in several months, my daily PM 2.5 has been either 10 or 15 outside.  In the house its at 1.  Lumpini park also has a trailer indicating the air quality and I have not observed it above 15 as well when I run in the morning or later in the evening at 6 pm when the traffic is the worst.  The photo I posted is from this past Tuesday when we had a break in the cloudy weather. The next one was from this morning
