There is no 'zero risk' in easing travel restrictions, WHO says

“There is no ‘zero risk’ when considering the potential importation or exportation of cases in the context of international travel,” it said in the updated guidance posted on its website on Thursday.

 

This from the same WHO idiots who long maintained at the beginning of the pandemic that there was no need for any international travel restrictions.... 

 

It doesn't take a Ph.D. in public health to figure out that if you're in a country with a size 2 COVID problem like Thailand initially, you do NOT want to import tourists/travelers from countries with worse size 3-10 COVID problems to add to your own domestic disease burden -- until and unless you have an effective/enforced quarantine and monitoring system in place.

In the case of Thailand we're talking about the risk of devestating millions upon millions of people who are relying upon the industry. Up to 20% of the total economy, if you take into account all related Industries. That is 5, 6, 7 million jobs lost for Forever at this pace.

 

 

There is (low level) job creation too...going on right now.

 

For example, in Ubon a few months ago, Grab barely existed.

 

Now there are literally hundreds of motorbikes stationed in front of multiple restaurants throughout the city, waiting for their orders.

 

So, instead of transporting tourists in the South, many now transport food in the Northeast and elsewhere...

That is a mere pittance. It represents 1% of formerly employed Thais, maybe.

Thank you China, more COVID-19. A recent study analysed the pandemic and concluded that air travel was a major cause of the virus spreading world wide.

Amazing, since China/WHO also suggested is was not very contagious until they had to, as China was buying the world's supply of masks. The daily infection rate is about to hit 300,000 confirmed cases per day. 

 

How  and when did WHO suggest it was not very contagious?

keep doing what you're doing Thailand, it won't be easy but will be a lot easier than if you let in a whack of diseased people that will overwhelm your hospitals like all these so called first world countries seem to promote..

Was not The WHO the same body that told us there was no human to human transmission?  The same idiots who told us that we shouldn't wear masks? 

 

Shock collars should be issued to all these idiots so we we may zap them when they write stupid things.
