How many would have passed a PCR test if they had been made to take one instead of just being allowed to fly with a fit to fly certificate ? Also find it very odd most of these are showing up around day 4 in ASQ , I thought they tested you at the airport when you got off the plane before being shipped to ASQ .

The amount of positive that seem to come via Middle East has put me off my flight plan. A single via Dubai from uk with emirates was around £500 and single non stop with Eva was £720 economy. So I think I will hedge my bets and go for the eva flight even though more cost .

Does anyone else think they're finding an unusually high number of people with CoVid-19 in quarantine?

 

I'm starting to wonder if the Thai health authorities are using an overly-sensitive PCR test that's picking up on non-viable virus fragments still left in the person's system, as was apparently the case in South Korea with some of the earlier reports of re-infections.

What's an overly sensitive PCR test?

So It has been stated that Covid is very dangerous, yet almost everyone in Thailand recovers. A different strain they say? Right, but these people have come in from various countries? Do we really beleive this thing is any worse than the common flu? Is it really worth shutting down the whole worlds economy, killing and putting out of work/business thousands in the process?

You are late with your rant this subject has been mentioned many times before
