Thai health officials seek lockdown of eastern region for 28 days

Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health will ask Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha to impose lockdown restrictions on the entire eastern region of Thailand for 28 days, to stop the continuing surge of COVID-19 infections.

 

Deputy Public Health Minister Satit Pitutacha said today (Saturday) that the measure is necessary because many people at risk of being infected have concealed their involvement in activities which put them at risk, while others have refused to report to health officials for screening.

 

He said that 99% of the infections in Rayong, Chon Buri and Chanthaburi are linked to illegal gambling dens.

Thats a bit dramatic, get this holiday period over and everything should calm down, too many people on the move the government is partly to blame all these different travel promotions.

Calm down, you don't think the number of cases is about to rise due to all  the travellers over the festive period?

They should have locked it down last week.

That's correct. Interestingly most of measures being implemented now are pertinent, but should have been implemented ten days ago. And I am pretty sure that the doctors and epidemiologists pushed to do so, while the government procrastinated for the sake of preserving a tenth of a point of GDP. The country needed a lock down before New Year.  

They did so before last Songkran  and it worked... Go figure.

There is no real point in Locking Down the entire Eastern Seaboard now.

All the damage was done about a week or more so ago, and all the people that wanted too, have been allowed to travel all over the Country potentially carrying the Virus with them.

I still wonder why Lockdowns were not implemented sooner, and the only rational reason that I can come up with, is Money.

All the people travelling will spend money on Buses , Trains, Flights , Hotels, Food and Drink Etc, and the Government were so eager  to empty their Wallets at the cost of the Populations Health and Wellbeing.

Well ! in a few Days the Population will start to empty the Government Wallet for Covid treatment.

From Xmas through to NYE seemed like non-stop get togethers. Add 8 to 10 days for the numbers to start jumping.

You want to get rid of gambling ? Covid is the solution !!!

 

Just like Covid will be used for anything the "Government" wants to have implemented.

Get rid of Alcohol - Covid

Bars - Covid

Smoking - Covid

Entertainment - Covid

 

Free speech - Covid

Any liberties - Covid

 

You name it !!! Covid is being used as the ultimate tool to unlimited power !

 

And to anybody who believes anything from "The Nation" - it's the number one Propaganda Tool for foreigners in Thailand together with the Bangkok Post !!!

 

Note to TV admins:

now you can ban me or censor me for telling the truth 🤠   ... TV is a big part of the Propaganda machine also !!! Censoring the truth where ever they can.

Abso-<deleted>-lutely! Leave the gate open and buffalo wander where they will. This is not disparaging of Thais. All of us were desperate for a break & a hug & family smiles after this year. But the generals shut down Songkran in April. Why didn't they use the same advice & shut down new year? Instead, they not only left the gate open, they offered a discount! Brilliant!
