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

If Vietnam opens up its borders before Thailand, with a sensible cost neutral testing regime, and doesn't erect the series of hoops for people to jump through which Thailand seems determined to, then that would make sense.

 

If the flights to South East Asia, when they resume, fly to Ho Chi Minh City rather than Bangkok, because that is working better, then it will be game over for Thailand as a transit hub.

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?

The Cabinet has agreed to extend the state of emergency to curb the Covid-19 pandemic by another month from the end of October, deputy government spokesperson Traisuree Taisaranakul said on Wednesday.

Yeah okay we believe you... now what was I doing?

I don't think we are being told a pack of lies. At least there is not a high number of infections as that would lead to high rates of mortality and you would see that, in queues for cremation at the temples if nothing else.

How does 60k infections nationally get us to overwhelmed hospitals in any state? For the entire pandemic there were 7k hospitalizations in Colorado, most at the peak during the 1-2 month period. We're not anywhere near that point now and even then it couldn't overwhelm hospitals. This is so over but the media won't let it go away. All we get is fear mongering from them.

Because it's not about nationwide, but about the states individually.  Some are doing better, some fair, and quite a few are doing terribly.  Like Wisconsin, N and S Dakota, etc.  You have to look at each state individually, not as an entire nation. 

 

I've got no idea about Colorado. Other than it's a beautiful state with a pretty good governor. 

 

As for the media, it's not over.  75k or so new infections and almost 1k dead...just yesterday.  In a few days, you'll match the deaths from 9/11.  That is stunning and far from fear mongering.

1k sounds too high, not sure where you got that from but regardless remember the US has 320+ million people. These are incredibly small numbers. It's like 0.25 deaths per county or 0.000003% of the population.

Easy to research the numbers.  Stunning you don't know what they are.  They are posted everywhere.

 

Small numbers unless that death was your partner, your child, your parent.  And it can be reduced drastically, relatively easily.  Also, don't forget the ones who survived.  Perhaps after weeks in ICU and with conditions that last a long time.  Perhaps a lifetime.  We just don't know.

In all probability, Vietnam will already have an exit plan ready, and will open her borders way before Thailand. TH is just so unpredictable at the moment.

To the contrary, the government here could not be more predictable.

Not entirely obvious. For someone who's the boss he seems singularly inactive. Occasional speeches, no vision for a better future, no decisions for a better future, no obvious implementation of any little decisions that do happen to get taken. Nothing at all really.

He hasnt even realased a new song in a while.

It's ironic when reading the two top stories that one is extending the emergency period owing to the virus and the second is allowing passengers from mega cruise ship to disabark. Go figure.

why?  If they do a 14 day quarantine, then they're fine.  Makes sense if they want to get tourists back here.
