and the numbers keep going up, with the illegal back and forth to Myanmar, the extended week end travel, the change in attitude with mask wearing as less and less wear them, it sure doesn't look good

Great safety thinking, since the meticulously screened and controlled tourists could get infected while in Thailand. 

Surely the holes in Swiss cheese are surrounded by, well, cheese. They don't have little tunnels linking the holes so it's not porous.

Yep, sure thing, whatever you say, but what will it be next week and from what department, oh, don't bother.

This Anutin is one gangster with PM ocha. If they want to keep closing the border, they always find someone infected like miracle. They did it couple time already. There were some excuse before the case of french woman. 

If you follow the news continously, it's not really hard to read their intention.

Perhaps I am not clever enough and so I have to ask. What do you think are their intentions?
