This fella is a real medical genius ! 😂😂😂

Bloody hell, there were 41 of them earlier, have we lost two already?

The aim is for no quarantine for his chinese mates.  Everyone else pay up for 14 days quarantine.

What about the thousands of retirees and business people needing to return home to Thailand?

Talk about misguided priorities! “Chinese Tourists” –

 – WHAT THE HECK!

Expats bring in many millions of Baht into Thailand so why are we not even being considered?

Zero quarantine = epidemic

 

Whoever makes the decision to allow people in without quarantine is the person who's directly responsible for the carnage that will 100% and without a doubt follow.

 

They're in a trap and need to stay there until at least next summer, otherwise blame will be apportioned and it won't be a good outcome.

 

Personally I don't care one way or the other.

 

Quarantine = no tourism = 1 million plus unemployed (and increasing) = economic hardship. 
A fuller equation...

That’s not correct. It’s more like:

Zero quarantine -> epidemic

Having no quarantine doesn’t equal epidemic. Ever. But it might lead to it. But that is also highly unlikely, given that passengers are tested with a reasonably reliant test before boarding the planes. 

Yes foreigners but not returning thai so infection on the plane can still happen

The figure I saw was "round about 40" so they're covering the occasional runner!

Why not just pick a few islands, and make them COVID islands?  Test everyone before they come, when they get to Thailand, a few more times during their stay, as they sit alone on the beach working, or whatever...

 

Then they are free to travel,. if COVID free.  It's easier to control an outbreak on an island.

 

If it's successful, Thai people will believe in the process~I'm not saying they will believe the government.

"The 14-day rule is widespread because public health agencies around the world work together on these guidelines. In the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sets the quarantine period, and its counterpart organizations do so abroad, all in concert with the World Health Organization."

 

Ah, but Anutin knows best - after all, he is the Minister for Health (as well as being the Deputy Prime Minister) and is consequently well experienced in medical matters :cheesy: :-

"Anutin has been a leading proponent of medical marijuana" (Maybe why he keeps changing his mind on many things) :-

 

"His has over the years been a member of many political parties such as the National Development Party, Thai Rak Thai Party and as leader of the Bhumjaithai Party."

And:-

 "...all you see are farang ('Westerners'). They flee their own countries for the safety of Thailand. In Chiang Mai, 90% of Thais are wearing face masks, although none of the farang are wearing masks." He went on to add, "This is the reason our country is being infected [by the SARS-CoV-2 virus]. We should be more careful of the farang than other Asians. At the moment it is winter in Europe and farang come to Thailand to hide from the [Covid-19] disease. Many farang dress dirtily and don't shower. All [Thai] hosts have to be very careful."[13]

Later, hearing advice from the US Surgeon General, Dr Jerome Adams, that the wearing of masks was unnecessary for the uninfected, Anutin changed his opinion"

 

Why is this buffooon still in such a powerful position? :-

 

."Anutin completed secondary education at Assumption College and higher education in engineering from Hofstra University in 1989.[4]

Anuthin is heir to a major construction company fortune. His family's company, Sino-Thai Engineering and Construction PCL, built several government mega-projects such as Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport.[5] An engineer, Anuthin served as president of Sino-Thai.[6]

"Anuthin is heir to a major construction company fortune. His family's company, Sino-Thai Engineering and Construction PCL, built several government mega-projects such as Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport.[5] An engineer, Anuthin served as president of Sino-Thai"

 

So basically, he is a (very wealthy) engineer, with no medical experience ( except in the medical marijuana "field" - pun intended!) who is prone to changing his mind when it suits his agenda, and is now saying that " if we are confident, we do not have to be afraid since the goal is finding the safest period for quarantine. If we find a good method, it may be reduced to five, four, three days or even none.”

Well, I for one, will be watching the Australian Rules Football Grand Final (heir superbowl equivalent).

They had some matches earlier this year with no fans, and had to move games out of VIctoria state, but ya know what?

There have been upwards of 35,000 fans at the matches. Same goes for rugby and other sports.

Game starts at 3:30 on Saturday, but of course a pregame show. Will be on ABC Australia

Me too. Bought the monthly subscription and watched all the games. A touch with the old reality.  Best thing I ever did.
