Dream on, McDuff.

I am not "dreaming on". But many long term Farangs are. By the time the Phoenix rises from the ashes, it will not be "Farang-Strong-Hands" that will benefit, unless your name is Apple, Microsoft or Toyota.
Surely, after "the virus", certain changes will even be implemented in Thailand. But not really affecting Long-Term Farangs in a positive way. The unsurpassable wall called "Thai Rak Thai" will remain intact.

Long overdue: Permanent residency should finally be granted for Farangs that have supported a Thai-Family for the last 235 years. Like in every other civilised country. Not going to happen in Thailand. It's those long-term Farangs that need to keep "dreaming-on".

 

Frequent Tourists never had any reason to "dream-on". They arrived at the Airport "how nice to be here". After a 4 week holiday they said "how nice to go back home again". This is called "Tourism".
After the Virus: Rinse and repeat. Nothing will have changed.

 

Especially when the "Thai-Authorities" realize, that it will be far cheaper to "re-start" Pattaya as it were, instead of trying to turn Walking-Street and it's surroundings into a "productive-industrialized-zone.😂

Bovine CoV (BCoV) is managed through the use of the specific vaccine.

Interesting, isn't this the bovine virus that's a common ancestor to the HCoV-OC43 ?

Looks very hopeful. Already been trialed with 2000 patients in UK. Given to patients who develop serious Covid symptoms.

 

Combined with the Oxford Uni/Astra Zenica vaccine, offers optimism for 2021.

Don't worry, the same Thai's who ripped you off before the virus and begging for your help now, will rip you off again once this is all over.

I'll not be surprised at all if Pattaya carries on from where it left off- still broken and floods after a thimble full of rain.

The difference will, IMO, be that it's a Chinese tourist city, which is where it was heading anyway. Once the railway from China is opened expect the horde to really arrive. Only the advance guard have been there as of last year.

We saw this after the tsunami in Phuket. 

 

They begged tourists to return, telling tourists to not feel they would be taking advantage of them during  difficult time, and what happened after they returned, the locals went straight back to the cheating, overpricing, scamming, extorting and assaulting them.
