After COVID.

That might be a year or more. 

More = a long long time, possibly never.

Yes with a civilian government. But you are not capable due to racism

As there's truly little between the type of governments that one wishes to attain.....or dream about.

There will be a speedy recovery in October.  The charter planes are lined up to bring all the super rich to LOS. Just ask Prayut

would be scared silly if I had to fly back.

That puts in the same boat as the Thai government. Scared silly. Scared of something that has been blown out proportion by media and social media.

 

I hear people in UK saying the same yet only 1% of deaths are attributed to Covid19.

Indeed the longer "they" can keep the masses believing a lockdown is necessary? Probably indefinite? 🙂 

 

In the UK there are 69 cases/100,000 people compared to 28/100,000 in Sweden The infection rate in France is almost 7 times higher than in Sweden and the virus is 10 times more prevalent in Spain, both countries that implemented strict lockdowns, maybe they got it wrong? 

Where are all the Sweden critics now? Why is this Never in the news?

 

So many - who lets be honest - deserve to be "locked down" still believe that they have been saved* from the not-so-deadly virus by creating the biggest mental health and poverty crisis in history, by corrupted politicians, eyes open!

There will never be an "after Covid." 

That might be correct if you look at the Corona family. Is there 6 or 7 right now that circulates where SARS and MERS are the rare guests, but the others are the ones visiting us frequently and covid 19 looks like it's joining those. If so we might end up treating it like regular flu, but with various vaccines like we have now. 

 

So a quick recovery could take longer than we think. 

The winter period Europe soon is entering will be interesting to follow especially for those countries that are used to our tourist money.

Worth looking at what he actually said rather than jumping to conclusions.

 

Did he mention tourism? Yes - he referred to 'quality tourism'

 

The choice of words is significant. The Thais have for a long time had a name for back packers with little spending money - it translates as: 'bird <deleted> tourists' In recent years they've used the same term to describe the Chinese hordes who arrive in managed groups, wander around - but don't buy anything.

 

So who is he referring to when he spoke of 'quality tourists' ? The measures recently announced, with all their bells and whistles, seem aimed at those retiring to the LoS - residents from overseas - rather than tourists - but that might be what he had in mind.

 

Or is he thinking about the middle aged, relatively affluent european visitors who arrive with plenty of spending money and rarely cause any trouble?

 

Of course, like many leaders of many countries at the moment, he talks of 'post Covid' as though it's about to go away - which everyone now knows isn't going to happen. But the economic imperative to get to a 'post Covid' position is compelling.

 

I predict that as soon as someone comes up with something that vaguely resembles a vaccine and doesn't actually kill people, countries like the LoS won't wait to see whether it works or not, but will open their doors to anyone who has had a jab and has a well filled wallet..

A significant detail that I'm watching is that whilst it is being observed that most people who have had Covid are seeing a rapid attenuation of antibodies, there are so far no certain cases of someone having caught the bug twice.

 

If this means that our memory T cells are effective at preventing a second infection, the 'herd immunity' approach will get a huge boost.

1200 Rich clean Tourists, or 10,000 Dirty Backpackers, I can see his logic...

1200 a month - 15,000 p.a. is just 0.05% of the usual tourist tally - it doesn't register as tourism in the normal sense. I don't know how many people fly to Thailand in private jets each year - but wonder whether that's where they got that number from..

Don't forget they will be filtered into Government chosen over priced Hotels, and Covid Tests no doubt, I have seen figures like 300,000 Baht for the 14 days!

I am sure a few back handers are being paid!
