How predictable. The Coronacrisis is a very convenient thing for the generals, and they use it appreciatively as a welcome political tool to protect their troughs. So obvious.

Thank you Khun Prayut Chan O Cha and the government, obviously it gives them more management capabilities that assist with keeping COVID19 out of Thailand while allowing folks to go about their daily

Really, I thought Thailand was and has been COVID free for a while. This would suggest that we are being told a pack of lies. Or is there another reason?

BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand's cabinet on Wednesday agreed to extend a state of emergency until the end of November, a government spokesman said, maintaining the security measure put in place in late March to contain its coronavirus outbreak.


Thailand has confirmed only 3,759 coronavirus infections, with most recent cases imported. There have been 59 deaths.

It recently received a group of foreign visitors for the first time since a ban on commercial fights was imposed in April.

I'm a hotel owner in Laos. 90% of tourist arrivals into Laos come via Thailand (mainly Suvarnaphoum) as its transit hub, so this decision is a further blow to the 1,000s of hotels, guesthouses, restaurants and all their employees that have lost their jobs since March. In all honesty, I believe Laos will turn its back to TH and start looking towards Viet Nam as a transit hub. Its important to know that decisions made by TH also severely and directly affect all regional neighbours. Fingers crossed.

Why look to Vietnam? They've also closed borders...
