Is this a joke? Tourist destination? You can't get in!

Zero tourists ... zero infections ... completely safe.  Give me strength!

Sure its safe - But how many want to be stuck in their hotel room form 2 weeks. Even the Chinese won't come if they can't ravage the buffet every meal time.

 /ˌdes.tɪˈneɪ.ʃən/ US 
 
 /ˌdes.təˈneɪ.ʃən/
 
 
B1
the place where someone is going or where something is being sent or taken:

Of course sid for many it is the end of the line terminal zero for many old buffers . I hope your train is not derailed and you "Carry on Connecting",

I see that Italy is also on the list, which isnt surprising considering it's well documented control of the virus.

maybe the logic is that all the Italians who might have had the virus are already dead.

Why is Thailand the only country that reports only hospital cases in their Covid number (hence the discharge number).

 

What about the other 380,000 PUI (patient under investigation) not reported in the press.

I believe that is total number of tests done. It does not refer to people still currently under investigation, it is a cumulative number.

Europe had moved from the initial hammer to the dance phase.

I'd say well done.

Not so. Tests are reported as 750,000 done, so PUI of 380,000 is something else. Pic is thailand and Cuba testing 

# tests / tests per million pop/ pop

Absolute nonsense. How can a country be the safest holiday destination while not letting in tourists?

 

 

And not just Thailand, others on the list are also closed to tourists.

 

So they may be "safe" (in terms of COVID) but they are not "tourist destinations".
