Waiting to see when one of these first Chinese tourists or the returning Thais from the specific flight are listed as positive.  However, I won't be concerned if they lie as they have been lying for a long time.

It is called sarcasm, and my post was dripping with it.  You need to read between the lines my man, read between the lines and think outside of the box the actual words are written in. Tell me how China has been of late.

This is proving that quarantine is working and succesfully sorting the wheat from the chaff as it is designed to do. So why the paranoia about allowing in tourists from higher risk countries up to the number of ASQ facilities available? The only Thais to lose out would be the cartel of insurance companies having to pay out for the further quarantine and possible treatment of those found positive in exchange for the extortionate fees they are charging for paltry cover.

These hospitals must be doing roaring trade these patients - all costs covered by insurances up to 100,000 dollars. 

 

Great gig. 

Funny how the arrivals have already had negative result in pre flight covid test, then negative in quarantine on day 5 and a day before to leave the quarantine hotel they test positive.. hotel hands person to hospital.

you should not have to ask who they are. You have been part of the TV forum since 2004.  I am sure you can read into the sarcasm and figure out who They are..

Personally you can see the conflict of interest in hospitals admitting patients. They have a 100,000 dollar insurance cheque at their disposal. 

 

I never trust hospitals when it comes to profits.

Thai citizens returning on repatriation flights are not required to get a C-19 test to get on the flight, but foreigners on the same flight must have one within 72hrs of flight which is just ridiculous.

Yes & we can imagine a few of those foreigners who tested negative before flight  (but flew in on same plane as these 9 infected untested Thai's) will now turn positive in Thai Quarantine after being put in the germ plate with the infected Thai's who the Thai govt allowed to fly covid test free.....As you say just ridiculous
