Vaccine Passport plan still on the horizon as Thailand readies for Area Quarantine in five tourism provinces


Recommended Posts

So the "science" says that a vaccinated person cannot spread the virus? Is that what people are saying?

 

And this "effect" lasts for how long, exactly?

sorry but within 14days after receiving the first vaccine you can spread and catch covid-19 by the 31 day you are more protected. up 46% now when you get the second Jab you body system with 10  days you will be over 90% protected now the only issue is how long maybe years?

800 Russians a day to Phuket my  <<deleted>>. 800 over 2 weeks equates to 11,200 tourists at 24 places in 2,752 rooms. Really?

More Pipat Pipe dreams - but I wonder what he is smoking in his pipe?

I understand the protective nature of a vaccine.

 

I was specifically asking about the science, and duration, of the "effect" of a vaccinated person to transmit the virus.

 

The general assumption seems to be that if you are vaccinated, you are immediately rendered incapable of transmitting the virus, Just asking if this is supported by the science, and if so, for how long?

Vaccines do not stop you getting and carrying any virus.

 

They merely stop you, the vaccinated person, from getting sick from the virus.

 

All vaccinated people can carry and spread the virus.................end of story.

This is my "layman's" take, but people seem to be foaming at the mouth to push these vaccine passports, so just wondering what their justification(s) is, I mean other than cash.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cash, cash, profits, money.................cash, cash, cash...............

 

The people foaming at the mouth are the ones who want the cash again............they are looking for any excuse to get their tills ringing again and the money coming in....................

 

Vaccine passports will not work for many many reasons.

So the solution is what?

Keep all international borders closed forever?

He hopes that Area Quarantine will play a big part in this opening to tourism. He explained that AQ is what tourists want as it is cheaper than villa quarantine and provides more freedom.

 

Although it is still 14 days in a hotel the tourist can leave their room after three days and walk around, though they must stay within the confines of the resort. 

With this mentality, if the borders do open he will be lucky to get 5000 not 5 million.

His target for the year of foreign tourists remains at 5 million with initially Russians on package tours to Phuket and well-heeled Indians being the most hopeful groups.

I do hope when this nonsense is over the media or even the opposition will grow a pair of gonads and question all these ridiculous numbers thrown around and ask these idiots to do the honourable thing. Step down.

 

The TAT are consistent in their hilarious predictions and give many of us our daily laughter medicine.

I would suggest people need to grow a pair..........

 

Make the vaccine available to those old and sick and unhealthy people.

 

Make the vaccine available to everyone else.

 

Then open up fully and ignore Covid.......like we ignore Flu and TB and many other nasties.  

 

Correct.

It's true that vaccines don't stop transmission, but there is plenty of evidence coming out that they reduce it. Some studies saying by around 2 thirds. 

I'm not a scientist, but wouldn't this be enough to keep the R below 1?

So round it up to 6000 rooms, average 1.5 people per room, 9000 people, rotating every 2 weeks equals 18000 per month. Wonder where the 5 million comes from?

Yes, which is what happens with influenza .

We don't close international borders and lock down people because they get the flu

Yes, this is how it works for all the vaccines ... to protect yourself by killing the virus in a shorted time and a higher probability of success.
But it can be possible that as antibodies are working fast and early if you had the shot, the viral charge 'could' be lower, so you 'would' spread less viruses, and for a shorter time. So the logic answer would be : Get the hosts vaccinated as many as you can, and get who ever you want as tourist, but vaccinated tourists can be safer for all.
Now the problem is how many percent of Thai/Expats people would be vaccinated in October ....... That's the real question.

That would help. The R-0 depends more on how contagious the variant is and easily transmitted. The viral charge to be contagious could differ from a variant to another one ... but that's life. At one point, we have to risk something, as we are driving everyday ... more risky 😉

"The first, a leaked manuscript first reported by Israeli news site Ynet before being covered by MIT Technology Review, Bloomberg, The Financial Times, and Vox, found that two doses of Pfizer-BioNTech’s shot drove an 89.4 percent drop in infections—both symptomatic and asymptomatic—among vaccinated people in Israel."

 

"The second report, a preprint posted on The Lancet Monday, blew that glimmer of good news into a bigger flame. It described a Public Health England study of health care workers in the United Kingdom who’d received the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, and who were tested every 14 days for Covid-19. The study found that in addition to making people less likely to get sick from the coronavirus—no surprise there—the vaccine sliced the risk of the recipient getting infected, period. By how much? Vaccinated health care workers were 72 percent less likely at 21 days after the first dose, and 86 percent 7 days after the second dose."

And your point being what? Thailand is still an un-vaccinated country at this point in time, and it has been shown that some folks who have already been vaccinated have, and I say HAVE been infected.  Oregon had four cases and there are others.  However, it is not about just the vaccinated getting the virus again, but the ability to transfer it to un-vaccinated people.  Not enough studies as of yet as we are on a very limited playing field.  Not that I don't want the country and the world to open up, it is the powers to be that seem to be slow on any uptake.

Vaccinated people can still get infected with Covid-19. Here's why - CNN

 

So much we still do not know about this virus and then the different vaccines efficacies.  All people are different, and what works for one may not work for another.

There is no evidence that the vaccine does not protect people from infection, however, previously there was no evidence that it does protect people from infection, which Fauchi, CDC and co base their assumption that it doesn't on. Evidence is now emerging and they will have to revise their statements.

The solution is to get the Thai population vaccinated then open the borders.

 

The only other way is to take off and nuke the entire site from orbit.

again correct
