Infected French woman on Samui: All high risk contacts test negative


Recommended Posts

This is an excellent analysis of the Thai psyche and the Thai Covid-paranoia, by Jiraporn Laocharoenwong, Chulalongkorn University:

 

https://th.boell.org/en/2020/10/08/covid-19-health-borders-and-purity-thai-nation

 

The arcticle describes quite well what now is going on with this "French"-Thai-woman, and what is going on in the mind of the people on Koh Samui.

 

The article is worth to read as it helps to understand the Thai paranoia about Covid. It also explains well how even Thai citizens like migrant workers can become victims of the Thai xenophobia when the arrive back home from abroad. This is what's happening to this "French" Thai woman now.

 

Needless to say that this concept of protecting the "Purity of the Thai Nation" is boosted and misused as a political tool by the government since they closed the borders in March.

She will be a Thai when she recovers, French if she dies. Get well soon, cherie.

The only Thais who seem to contract Covid have been overseas mixing with dirty foreigners.

Those in Thailand are immune to catching it.

Still calling the Thai national married to a French guy a "French woman" because she is a dual citizen.   I bet if she received an honor like a Nobel Prize suddenly she would be a "Thai woman."  But having been infected with Covid she's a "French woman." 
We get it.
