Can you imagine what might be found if they randomly tested 1,000 people who haven't left Thailand in 2020? I reckon this virus is all over the place, but not harmful in the vast majority and possibly asymptomatic in huge numbers.

I wonder how many people have it now...but don't want to go to the hospital in case they get forced into isolation or have their names in the news.... especially if they have been travelling around the country...then lots of people will have to tracked down and tested.

In order to prevent misinformation about foreign nationalities being considered a greater threat, it would be helpful if the statistics presented for positive cases returning, were separated into Thai and foreign nationals.  That way the Thai public could be more informed and any xenophobic reactions mitigated.  The way these news articles are published they tend to promote fear of 'infected farangs'.  Of course, I imagine most Thai people are intelligent and understand that once cleared from ASQ farangs do not pose a risk, but as we have seen, certain establishments have barred foreigners out of sheer ignorance and misinterpretation.  

Nationalities are noted in the BP article, but not in this OP. There is sometimes a follow-up article with this information. It would appear that all are Thai nationals.

I respectfully disagree. Thailand moved quickly to close the borders. When you eradicate the virus internally, then the only infections come from outside. You can see where the infections are coming easily....15 returning from India. If people were contracting coronavirus within Thailand you would know about it....where are the mass graves? Where are the refrigerated temporary morgues? They don't exist because COVID is not being transmitted within Thailand. This poses a huge problem for the authorities....at the moment the population of Thailand are safe from COVID....but once they open the borders without quarantine the virus will run riot here as there is no immunity. Thailand can only safely open up when other countries have stopped the virus within their borders.

Yeah yeah let's open Thailand to cheap labor from Mymar , Cambogia,  Laos , Vietnam and place them in working camps ... Have you ever seen Working Camps Hygiene Conditions ? Bla Bla Bla .....

Been said many times, you don’t test you don’t get cases, the average Thai won’t go to hospital.

Its well known that in general if you are in decent health you can recover in 4/5 days.

>1 in 2000 americans (and swedes) known to have died over the last 6 months.. can we make it 1 in a 1000? get well soon..
