The virus is here to stay!


Recommended Posts

One question that always perplexes me. Corona has run through a lot of countries, it has ravaged the population !! (24th biggest killer in the UK). But we still must have these lockdowns.
I believe Thailand is a ticking timebomb, and when the virus does eventually come, it will pass through the nation as it has everywhere else. Holding out now I feel has put Thailand in a worse position, as when it does come and does go through LOS, they will have to lockdown again, making further and more economical disasters to the country that already exist today with the 20% GDP figures. (Bangkok post puts it at 14% - 2019 - https://www.bangkokpost.com/business/1850904/virus-imperils-thai-economy)
According to the secretary-general of the Office of the National Economic and Social Development Council in 2019, the government projects that the tourism sector will account for 30% of GDP by 2030, up from 20% in 2019.
Countries such as France, Germany, Spain, and the UK are starting to see protests as to why these lockdowns are necessary, especially when countries such as Sweden (where most people followed the Governments advice and kept social distancing without wearing masks).
Therefore, why are we all globally running away from a virus that is here to stay. When it does finally enter into Thailand, it will cause further economic devastation, as it will not be possible to hold this virus out for much longer.
Please feel free to watch another video recently from Richard Madely (Another UK TV presenter) stating that running away from the virus will only harm our freedoms and our living styles further.

It's a bit late for the 47 who died in the UK today to run anywhere, the message is simple, if you feel you are at risk, better look after yourself as best you can. If that means less visits to public

Unless it already passed through here at the end of last year... 

i believe it has been in full swing in thailand for a very long time, i also believe asians have a higher tolerance to viruses then any other race due to exposure of chinese virus exports fo

If that means less visits to public places, distancing at every possible opportunity, wearing a mask, taking the virus seriously, then that is as it should be. Your life is in your hands.

For those that do not feel at risk by all means live your lives as best you can, with we hope just a little consideration for those not in a position to feel they can do the same.

Not stating I should be free and easy. Plus put myself at risk. But statistics are now evident and proof that COVID is WAY DOWN as the 24th Biggest killer in the UK.
Moreover, I do not live in the UK as a Brit.

The Thai government seem to have deluded themselves into believing that a vaccine will cause Covid-19 to just disappear. It won't because it won't be anywhere near 100% effective and not everyone will want to get it so eventually Covid-19 will come back to Thailand. However, for whatever reason it just doesn't seem to be spreading in this region. A few hundred cases pop up and then just disappear every now and again like in Thailand back in March or now in Burma. Maybe it's the weather or maybe it's just because coronaviruses are very common in this part of the world so people have immunity against them.

Ok so bungi jumping is not such a big killer, I've done it, I survived, but when my parachute jump was postponed twice, i decided not to try a third time!! The individual decides to take the chance or not. If you do not put yourself in harms way your chances of survival increase, your life your choice. I live as normal life as is possible at the moment, but am a little careful, rather than carefree.

I have done 3 jumps in my service. They were scary and fun at the same time. Bunji I did a Joss Bay near Ramsgate hanging out over the cliffs.
Yes, I take my chances. But what is evident, and what I was trying to express more than a lot of sub chats was that the virus isn't going away. When it does arrive in Thailand soon (when they finally publish figures), It will make the powers that be more wary, as the old military school are so worried that they might catch it.. Hence the complete closure of Thailand.

Thailand should be testing this hypothesis in the hopes of easing fear in the population. I used to get sick routinely when I first arrived in Thailand but it has subsided over the years as I presumably get immunity to the new virus' and bacteria in the region.

Agree, Thailand is fresh kindling for the virus, just like forests in California after Democratic mis-management.  Let's build that immunity the old fashioned way! 🤒

PCR and false positives and all tests that are just a big bunch of mish mash...
It seems that Most senior medical scientists are now seeing and stating that more people are dying of cnacer and other related diseases, than corona...
BUT WE HAVE TO HAVE A PAPER TO PROVE IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Numbers are not enough with the general education of addition and subtraction !!!
