Just a bizarre co-incidence I guess. 2020. September is record month for migrant Channel crossings https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-kent-54188041

I thought they decided to blame Cambodia already? wish they would make their mind up.   If they spent as much time handing out / working on quality vaccines (not that 50% Chinese tat) as the

Probably, one of the first lessions in virologi : viruses mutates.   Stop the scaremongering.

I think this article was written before the good Dr Yong Poovorawan announced that the new strain in Thailand, although similar to the UK variant, was different.

It actually matches the variant that has been circulating Cambodia for over month.

Unless the earlier article was not translated correctly of course.

But Thai PBS is the governments mouthpiece to the overseas community so don't expect accuracy.

The B117 variant is something to worry about .

But the new P1 variant from Brazil is even more dangerous it seems ...

A ticking time bomb

"Officials and experts are concerned about the speed with which the P1 variant, which is likely more infectious, is spreading and the damage it could pose globally. "

 

Lucky it did not arrive here in Thailand yet .

May be time close the borders to tourists again ?

Tourism ? Forget about it . Sorry ...

 

Can't be that bad. The Covid deaths per million is fewer in Brazil and in the UK

we're supposed to believe a brit variant has got to thailand, so 12 months lockdowns, quarantine and testing have all failed, might as well have not imposed any restrictions at all. we're also not supposed to notice the timing of this, just at britain opens its borders, thailand will close its borders. No mass tourism to thailand is the plan.

If they spent as much time handing out / working on quality vaccines (not that 50% Chinese tat) as they do trying to deflect the blame away by pointing in a different direction from their CCP overlords then they would be ahead of the game by now.

Dirty Farang spreading disease again they must be sneaking into Thailand

Actually, it's Thai hi-so's traveling to the casinos and bring it back.  Just like they did with the one in Laos last year.

If you see the grave yards in Brazil, even if it is a small percentage, is a lot of graves, which mean that a lot of

people in Brazil have lost their relatives and friends. Same for the USA, it may be less than a million people

lost there so far, but again that is a lot of relatives and friends in the USA who have died as well.  Lucky for you 

expats in Thailand, who seem to have not lost anyone you know, but just wait a while longer, even a few of you 

will likely get to know that someone you knew has also died.  Say welcome to the UK variety as it has already arrived in Thailand.

Geezer

BS.  I live in Thailand.  I had a friend in America die last year and the father of a friend in America die yesterday.  COVID19 was responsible for both deaths.  My friend was in his 50's with no health issues as well as being fit as a fiddle.  I have no idea if the father had any comorbidities.  Being thankfull, unlike you, no one in my large family still in America has died, tested positive, or was asymptomatic from COVID19.  The same for all my Thai family and friends in Thailand.  Some in America have already been vaccinated with no symptoms but some are like me and choose to wait knowing oh so well how much trust we can have in our US government, big Pharm, or any government.

It's not the original strain.  It's a variant.  Of which there are now thousands, with more to come.  Sadly, some are much more deadly.
