Quarantine Incoming, Yet Allow Massive Crowds of Protesters

Of course it has but you just don't understand it. That is ok not everyone is equally bright.

 

You are talking about a government mandated quarantine, something a government can control. The protests are out of control. So how can you compare measures that under control of the government with those that are out of control.

 

The amount of COVID is far less in Thailand then it is in Europe and the US. I don't believe its zero but its far lower so people don't want to import covid. You quote a few cases while in Europe and the US it runs wild

 

Keep your eye blinkers on and moan all you want Thailand is doing it right.

Look where you are before calling yourself bright!

 

The government is hell bent about the spread of Covid on the outside. Yet they have no fear of 10,000's of people being close together, mask or no mask.

 

Also not testing incoming Thai's from Covid rampid locations like the USA.

 

You don't think for a minute some of these folks have figured out a way not to get in quarantine and might be out protesting? Sound very plausible.

 

You also have to ask yourself how people do a Covid test, negative, to get on a flight and arrive in Thailand positive, or test positive in Quarantine? 50,000 baht per person for quarantine is a lot of money for someone's pocket.

 

I sure would NOT trust the governments reporting. If COVID was that low, what exactly is the reason for financially shutting down Thailand to the reported loss of 1.7 trillion baht?

 

If you were bright, you might question these types of things.

You dont worry your head about Thailand's problems.

 

Worry about Florida instead.

 

Exactly.  He spends a copious amount of time posting and arguing about Thailand that really do not concern him.  He should be worried about Florida and the soaring unemployment along with rampant Covid cases with no end in sight.

Everybody gets tested before entering Thailand.  Thais included.  Amazing you don't know this.

 

And no, they're not getting out of quarantine and going to protests.  Wow. 

 

If you were bright, you wouldn't be asking these kinds of things.

Contrary to farangs that need to show evidence of a negative covid-19 test taken less than 72 hours before boarding, Thai nationals are exempt from that requirement.

Yes, on arrival all passengers will be tested.  And if it turns out that on arrival one of those untested Thai passengers is then tested positive, that would be kind of a nice surprise for all the foreign passengers that have been seated shoulder-to-shoulder during the flight...

You obviously have no clue what is going on. Its ok educate yourself a bit and you might learn something. Thais incoming from the USA are also going into quarantine. Every Thai that comes back goes into quarantine just like foreigners. 

 

Again you don't seem to understand the distinction between a rule (the quarantine) government mandated and protest that the government does not want but can't control. Just because you can't control something does not mean you have to give up control on the other parts that you can control. Also the numbers in Thailand were low.

 

As for people who first do a test and get negative in quarantine, there are two options (the incubation time of the virus and time of the test). Do read up on that you might learn something. The virus has an incubation time, it differs between people. So its perfectly possible to be negative first and positive later. There is also a small chance to get it in quarantine. 

 

I have talked with people who have been through quarantine (have you ?) it was all done pretty professional. I guess you are a bit worried about paying money to enter Thailand. (i can understand then just don't come or leave Thailand then you dont have to pay)

 

Again they shut Thailand down before and now its open and the GDP drop is less then that of the UK. So Thailand is doing well. They only don't open it up to tourists as that means they would import COVID and have to shut down again as you see in many places in Europe.

 

Maybe you should stop being so bias and look at things and engage your brain.

Yes that is the advantage of being Thai, and a risk you take. But even if someone tests negative it does not mean he or she can't infect anyone. So there is always a risk. But its normal for a country to give perks to their own people and repatriate them faster.

@Jeffr2 > I agree that it is a SAD fact... but worth mentioning as it is fully correct and you were obviously not aware of it.

The information you posted is correct, but why the condescending tone?

You also wrote > the distinction between a rule (the quarantine) government mandated and protest that the government does not want but can't control.

Once again correct, but it would only be fair to also mention the mass pro-government and Deleted rallies that did take place by the Yellow Shirt bearers.  And in that case the government does not seem to have the urge to 'control' it, and indeed there is no reason to do so because Thailand is virtually covid-free.  But using the covid-argument to condemn the protests, but allowing other mass-gatherings if they suit you is rather hypocritical.

No, I was not aware of it.  I thought everybody had to test before getting on the plane.  But the tests are done at the airport on arrival.  Sure, a passenger could get infected on the flight.  Could happen from one who tested negative but is actually shedding the virus.  It happens.

 

So, great they test at the airport.  14 day quarantine.  About the best that can be done right now.  And right in line with many other country's requirements right now.
