Have you ever heard from other rest of the world that virus found in a room or in fitness room ?? 

It has been documented since the very early days of this virus that it can be contracted via fomites and can persist on hard surfaces for some time. A recent Australian study found that it can remain viable on objects and surfaces (in ideal conditions) for up to 28 days.

 

Coronavirus can last 28 days on objects

Yeah, yeah , we know, a dirty farang was using the gym beforehand

If she got infected while in a quarantine hotel, she should at the very least get her money back...

It is well known that the virus can live on inanimate objects, especially indoors.   Gyms are especially high risk environments due to tnedency of peopkle to grunt, breath hard etc while wor

This is why gyms were closed during lockdowns and among the last places allowed to reopen.

 

The timing of her infection makes it 99% sure her infection occurred while in quarantine.

 

Obviously the original source could have been of any nationality who used the gym. This is really not relevant, as is her visa status

 

What is relevant is that quarantine, meant to contain infection, actually spread it in this instance.

 

I would expect to see new guidance issued to ASQ facilities about use of gyms.

with garrulous loud conversations and glass surfaces everywhere bars are just as bad and in many cases worse..

I gave you a Thanks emoji. Whenever I'm scrolling through the TV cynicism, it's a joy to see 'Sheryl' come scrolling by. You're a voice of reason among the howling madmen.

Did she fly from Bkk to samui ? If so have they tested everyone on that flight and everyone that boarded the plane she was on after ? Surely if it can stay on gym equipment it would be able to stay on plastics in a plane etc ?

She left the hotel quite a while ago and the virus still was found on this fitness equipment. Do they clean in this quarantine hotel?

More to the point. If the Gym is supposed to be the point of infection why after her travelling to Samui is there still covid on the equipment? It should be disinfected everyday.

People are paying top money to these hotels and they cant even make them safe!

The other question is why was she allowed to enter Thailand. She is from a high risk country. Are they not blocked? 

My question is.....why want to go on hols at this time of the year with the covid everywhere.  I don't have any sympathy for the family.  At the limit, take them in her own country.

Please try and keep up.

She did not go on hols. She was returning to her home on Samui.

She is not a tourist.

I don't know what she does here. Perhaps she visits relatives.

 

But to Farang tourists in general. I ask myself if the Thai government is aware of the kind of Farang tourists that could come here. Many don't care about protection, some even will aggressively refuse it and some even like to make Corona parties. It is a completely different mentality than Thai people have. There is a reason why they have so many cases there. And I don't believe that this quarantine idea will work 100 percent. We saw it at this lady. Just to clarify - I am a Farang too.
