These stories are good.....To remind people that the destroyed lives will be 1,000 times worse than a disease with a 99.8 recovery rate..... 

When you actually think about that  - 50% closed - you realise the impact of this total nonsense. When the historians look back at this, they will condemn the governments of the world for the near des

I completely agree. They should be writing about the positive affects of covid. Instead of 27,000-30,000 sex workers out of work they should write, "30,000 families, moms and children reunited" or "La

Pattaya, like some of Thailand’s other former tourist hotspots, is facing some critical challenges. Hundreds of thousands of workers have left the city because there’s simply no work and up to 50% of the city’s shops are closed, some never to re-open.

Happening the world over, tourism is like any other business model, if supply/demand change so does your revenue... suck it up.

Where is the Thai government to ease the pain for people. 

For years you have begged people to come and invest their money in Thailand. We have. Where on earth are you now? why you do not help us to survive these bad days? no relief packages? No nothing. !!!!

Bunch of incompetent people sitting at important positions doing nothing.

If only it worked like that. The US has been bankrupt for decades now but none of that matters when you can print money and tax citizens.

Already my uk owes £30,000 in debt for every person in the UK due to borrowing for this political mess - and it's going up.

Besides that, debt/person => debt/(personsNow+FutureGenerations)

 

So much lower ...

I really don't understand the constant necessity to post sob stories about the covid destruction of Thailand's tourist industry. I suppose the media are finding it tough to find stories.

 

 It's the same problem worldwide. Pattaya has as much of a chance of recovering as anywhere else. Considering many countries (the whole of Europe even) are posting record numbers of infected, let's get over the pandemic first and then worry about tourists.

 

Enough of these stories already.

To me the difference with Thai tourism is that there is no real assistance given to the people.  They have had tourism schemes bit these are aimed at the  middle or higher end. The girls in the bar get nothing. Even back when everything was closed it was the Farungs who were feeding the poor not the government. Also the satellite towns of Pattaua are starting to get hit harder. They are where all the van drivers, hotel maids, restaurant workers live and a lot have lost their jobs.

It's good "up to" got included in the sentence, because the video don't shows half of shops are closed.

When you actually think about that  - 50% closed - you realise the impact of this total nonsense. When the historians look back at this, they will condemn the governments of the world for the near destruction of all the world's economy, whilst at the same time actually 'growing' theirs and the world's populations ! If this madness does not end soon, the damage caused by these insane politicians and leaders will not be fixed within the next 30 years.

Already my uk owes £30,000 in debt for every person in the UK due to borrowing for this political mess - and it's going up. If you take out retired and those unable or can't work, then that's about £40,000 each - and it's going up. It will have to be repaid quick to avoid potential interest rate rises. So, the youth now will probably get a £2,000 a year rise in their tax for the next 20 years, or a £1,000 bill now for the rest of their working life after starting work ! Madness , total incompetent madness.

And your solution to this . . . incompetence is . . .?
