Is there a ban on driving through Rayong province at the moment?

Reliable sources in Thailand?  We have no clue how many they tested before and after the public pressure brought on by the recent border hoppers.

 

Funny how the people telling us to lock down aren't the ones losing their jobs and their businesses.  They're still getting paid.  And I don't see them offering to take 50% pay cuts to share the wealth with those who do lose their livelihoods.  Seems like we aren't all in this together.

 

I'm talking about testing.  Like the docs say, if testing is the problem, why do we test for cancer?  Think about it....

 

As for testing, they make 100k test kits a month.  So, that's the max they test.  Hopefully, they are ramping up on this, that info is a few months old.

 

Better info in the Thai news.  More detailed.  Stay safe!!!

Today I had Bangkok taxi come to Rayong, pick me up and back to bkk. Currently just past swampy. No cars on the roads at all.

 

No tolls help also.

 

Yes sorry @OJAS

The above my post was earlier today in similar thread in visas etc.

zero traffic etc. Ban Pai to BKK in 2 hours. A record.

However they have not had chance to even set up border checks. Might be another story later in the week. We were due to return to bkk the coming Friday. Glad we made a dash for it today.

Aside info....my partner just spoke to owners on Samed tonight and your allowed in Ocean 6am till 6pm. Restaurants open for eat in.

No alcohol (however ways around that).

Why is alcohol such an enemy in Thailand.

 

Thanks Dr Jack, 

 

No problem getting alcohol with dinner last night & no restrictions on when we could use the resorts beach, but the swimming pool was closed a couple of days back at the previous resort. 

 

Off to check on the boat situation now...

I hope you're right and they are ramping up.  In the meantime, post back if you find any reliable data on the number of tests they actually did by month.  I can't find it.

I read they did 40,000 tests in Samut S., but for total numbers?  Who knows.  The data on the various websites reporting info vary widely.  Hard to know exactly what's going on.  Which isn't unusual for countries like Thailand.  They don't even report deaths in most African nations.

With recent expansion, it can now produce as many as 100,000 per month “to ensure health security and to be less reliant on imports.”

The fact that such a huge cluster was not contained, was a massive failure, and absolutely falls on the shoulders of Prayuth, and Anutin. The buck stops somewhere, right?

The only buck stopping these guys do is the one where the buck stops in their Swiss and Cayman accounts.

Now it appears not, as clear as mud!!

 

Motorway was open yesterday. We drove BKK to BanChang main road ( route 7 ).

Only other news was on Thai TV that 7 would be closed 10pm to 4am. How long that will go on I've no idea.

Motorway was open yesterday, we travelled from Ban Phe to Bangkok around 10am-12pm & it was the quietest I've ever seen it (in both directions)... However it looks like things have changed today... 

 

Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-Cha on Wednesday signed an order banning all but essential inter-provincial travel to and from Chonburi, including Pattaya, Samut Sakhon, Trat, Rayong and Chanthaburi.

 

The order has been published in the Royal Gazette.
