Declassified intel says Russia is spreading coronavirus disinformation: reports

Newly declassified intelligence reportedly shows that Russian operatives are using a variety of English-language websites to spread disinformation about the novel coronavirus. Senior officials with the Russian military intelligence unit known as the GRU are responsible for the disinformation campaign, according to reports from The New York Times and The Associated Press on Tuesday.

Your promotion of an opinion by Mr. Denis Rancourt is classic sabotage. The man is trained in physics, not  medical engineering and infectious disease. Of greater interest is that he had once been a tenured professor at the University of Ottawa. He was TERMINATED.  In Canada it is almost impossible to terminate a tenured professor.  He is known for his conflicts with the university  arising from his grade inflation and "academic squatting," (the act of arbitrarily changing the topic of a course without departmental permission.)  He is described as an emotionally unstable extremist. I find the description credible considering his wild allegations and his recent  legal case involving the allegation of character stalking. He is also described as an opinion for hire. Russia does not support action in respect to global warming, in large part because of its oil industry interests.  Mr. Rancourt has spoken out against changes to stem global warming.   How very convenient that  he always seems to be in synch with Russia.

Well done Thailand indeed, however...

 

This is the main reason why there will be no wholesale opening of the borders or lifting of quarantine restrictions for the foreseeable future. 

 

The xenophobia this government has created will now work against them as will their own success in handling the crisis so far. Thais will be petrified that those nasty furriners will enter and spread the virus... thus any second wave or outbreak will be catastrophic to this authoritarian administration and must not be allowed under any circumstances.

 

The only solution for them now being a complete isolation of the entire country with mandatory quarantine for all entrants. This means only a dribble of essential people in and out, and that is for the foreseeable future.

 

Meanwhile the Thai government will need to find another solution for the 20%+ of GDP that has just gone missing through lack of overseas tourism, dwindling exports and a tightening of belts domestically. Given that the situation globally will certainly worsen, it does not look like there is a solution, and with so many mega-projects just being signed off, I fear that an economic collapse is even more likely in tandem with growing political unrest.

 

The cracks are already beginning to show.

 

 

Agree almost 100% - many times I've said they have a choice, either open up and accept some new (manageable) infections or destroy the economy.  Prayuth has clearly chosen the latter.

 

His government have not only created Xenophobia, they have deliberately (in my opinion) created fear and paranoia amongst the Thai population in order to gain support for their current stance. If there was to be any easing of quarantine restrictions or even limited non-quarantine tourism, I think there would be mass protests and no doubt hostility towards entrants.

 

Keep the borders closed by all means but it won't be Chan-o-Cha or his fat cat cronies that suffer. It will be the voiceless working class Thais.  I can't comment on Bangkok but head out to the provinces - my wife's business is 50% down, the rest of her family are not working and she tells me that is widespread. The Mall and Terminal 21 in Korat are dead and the food markets are almost deserted. One adult family member out of seven got the government handout and even that has now finished.

 

Mr Chan-o-Cha has decided that he wants to go the route he's chosen and as foreigners, we have to respect that but surely he must then, provide some form of financial assistance? Before long people will literally be starving.

 

I agree, the cracks are starting to show and it won't be long before they are chasms.

If only it were true.....:whistling:

While I don't totally believe that Thailand is as free from Covid as it likes to portray, I don't think there is a huge problem because it would be all over social media with the public stating the opposite with stories to back it up... with those absent there must be an element of truth... having said that Thailand has a reputation for manipulating statistics to suit it's own purposes.

Looking at the worldwide news everyday I am happy to be in Thailand with no or little Covid-19.

Many people complain about the government but I think especially in this case we have to say: Good job. Thanks.

And then there are all the Thai people who take this serious. Most were wearing masks right from the beginning. Nobody had to order the people to wear masks, they were smart enough to do it by themselves. Great.

 

And the economy? Obviously that is bad and it will continue to be bad for some time. Nobody likes that. But what's the alternative? Opening up the borders and inviting tourist in? How long will it take before they infect others? And then? Let it spread or shut down again? I think no international tourists is the best from all the bad options.

Good thing you didn't make a trip outside Thailand in March, you'd have something else to say regarding international flights. Im sure your on a better than 'tourist visa' as many of us are stuck abroad.....

“ other data” from Johns Hopkins university .

 

Sad. I wish they would stop with this juvenile BS.

 

Are the people really that gullible?

The problem is not a virus, this is clear, the problem is the response.

 

One ray of optimism is the way the kingdom has a lovely way of rounding off those pesky sharp edges that are the rule of law, The ends justifying the means .

There is so much beauty here. The people, the geography.

 

It must be noted, the authorities are under orders. So there is that.The 4:00 AM directive arrives daily, becoming “News”.

 

The answer may be simply block the feed. Time will tell.


Quoting from “ other data “

Sources Say.

Good work Thailand and congratulations to the people of Thailand who came together to fight the virus.

 

Keep the borders closed. 

You would say that if you are in Thailand and not trying to get back to the family...

Stop spreading lies.  It's offensive when you write garbage such as "the only real difference with Covid-19 and the other Coronaviruses is that it spreads easier".   

Lies, garbage says you.

Your statement is an idiotic insult to the intelligence of people. 

Oh contraire, I am sure intelligent people see through what you cannot because once the tree grows a certain way, it cannot straighten up, and I would say you being (that tree) are too far gone.

There is no clinical evidence that the drug  you promote helps infected patients. NOT ONE CURRENT CLINICAL TRIAL.

Is there anything out there that has proven to work, remove the word "CLINICAL TRIALS" in the interim, or should the world just quarantine and wait for the oh mighty, holy grale, a "VACCINE"

 

This drug has been around for a long time and has been used for many similar diseases, it appears to work if the dose is used correctly, too much would end up killing patients because of toxicity, but there are those out there who will go against the grain and use it and save lives, you know, real doctors that won't sit down, won't be threatened by bullies threatening to suspend there licenses.

 

I don't try to educate people to far gone, I like to listen to both sides, and while the world is in lockdown, and people quarantined for a flu type virus which spreads easier why have they locked the world down, because they didn't know what it was, there is far more evidence now and data now to say, yep, it's a bad flu, oh better not put people on ventilators because that didn't work, it actually made it worse for most, i.e. they killed a lot of people because they thought the ventilator was the way to go, got that wrong, I could go on, but like I said, not here to educate people, if you think it's all lies and garbage, good for you , but don't try to insult my intelligence with your vial rhetoric. 

 

Instead of wasting time responding on TVF, why not try to educate yourself and listen to doctors, you know the frontline doctors who came out and told their stories of success with these drugs, only to be plastered on the news the next day as not being doctors, alleging they were people wearing white gowns, with a response later from another website showing a list of all the doctors, their qualifications etc etc etc, now why did they try to say they were not real doctors, why were they trying to discredit them ?

 

Believe what you want, I know if I got it tomorrow, I would be up for some of the smarties they have been prescribing their patients with, as for a vaccine, I wouldn't be waiting or going onto a ventilator.

Being No.1 on the backs of the people is easy.

Open the borders and lets see if No.1 stands !

I see the burden of being No.1

I also see 100s maybe 1000s unmasked and zero S.D.

This virus is airborne.

2m is not enuff the thai doctor says.

Malls,bars and resturants opened.

Migrants are crosssing the borders. 4 day holidays seem to be endless.

I stopped in to my lical insurance office, staff of about 50 in the office.I counted 18 unmasked and sitting within 1m of each other. 

No.1 wont last.

It'll last if the stats are fudged.  Easy to keep fudging if that's the desire.

good for us if they are not though.  It would be nice.  But doesn't make sense to have all the "covid" laws locally if no one has it, nor the "emergency decree" by the gov to bypass whatever other laws in place and subvert them for new laws they want.
