This is too easy. How much money is there for home quarantine, and how much money is there in mandated quarantine? Duh.

Because some people don't understand what quarantine means, just one of many examples: https://edition.cnn.com/2020/09/11/us/miami-university-student-party-covid-trnd/index.html What are they sup

Your thought is not completely absurd for me  😉

Well, to OP: because people who were supposed to be in quarantine posted on social media how they are enjoying the sea and restaurants and so on, basically completely ignoring the order to quarantine. Even when state quarantine was announced, people refused until they were threatened they'd be arrested if they didn't enter quarantine... Remember the drama at the airport when the group of 100+ simply refused to quarantine and were let go?

Now you might be more responsible, but how is government supposed to make rules for each person differently. They copied what worked in China. Except... flouting quarantine in China earns you a death penalty and we know of 2 people who got executed within a week of doing that.

I don't understand your problem. Nothing is impossible in Thailand. 

Sorry,

 
but as a non-native english speaking person i would prefer your expression 
"Nothing is impossible in Thailand" 
from my experience after over 12 years living in TH to interpret as:

 

"Everything is possible in Thailand." 😉

I would even accept an 'electronic ankle monitor' -- still better than 14 days in a room in a hotel jail.

So if  your electronik  monitor demonstrated the fact that  you decided  to  go  shopping  for your  favourite  flavour of  icecream in a  local mall in defiance  of proper   quarantine you would accept time well  in excess of  14  days  in a public prison ?

In many  countries  including Thailand " Home  quarantine" was breached  too  many times resulting  in  a  change in  rules.

Pretty simple. Nobody does what they promise in Thailand, it'd be "yes sure I'll stay in 14 days" and then after 5mins off for a cold beer.

 

Not that it matters that much. Just test before flying and after landing. Covid is here anyway, that'll prevent large influxes.

It would be easy to impose a high penalty for disregarding a home quarantine - maybe THB 100K+ like the cost of a hotel quarantine plus an additional 14 days hotel quarantine or even plus 14 days 'real' jail?

 

Wouldn't that help?

 

Where there is a will there is a way.

Still not a guaranteed money spinner .. compelling visitors to stay in the ASQ's as a condition of entry guarantees dosh flow .. trusting people to stay in of their own accord is not a guaranteed revenue stream ..

Covid-19 is not just plague or cholera!

 

Why such extreme, even irrational fear?

According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) in Berlin, an estimated 25,100 people will have died of the 'normal' flu in 2017/2018 in Germany alone.

Where there's Thailand there's zero enforcement.

No. How about;  Selfishness, ignorance and stupidity  on the part of the people who were supposed to self isolate and socially distance. Because of a few greedy people we must all pay the price.  Why would you expect the Thais to have  confidence in foreigners being respectful of the  rules when those foreigners have a history of evading the self isolation  requirements?
