Recommended Posts

 

Just heard there is a new cluster of Covid infections found at Lotus Ruam Chok today. 

 

Anybody hear about this?

at this point what difference does it make? No vaccines, nothing but BS from the gov mouthpieces. All we can do is wear a mask, clean our hands and avoid people.

Reported two days ago...focus on food court and a gold shop as primary infection points.  It does matter to know what is going around you so you can take (additional) precautions.

Yes, there might be still people infected there who haven't shown any symptoms yet so it's better to avoid the place these few days,.

That's very close to where I live. I was planning to go to the Tesco there two days ago but was lazy and did not go. Guess I will just completely bunker down at home for a while. Thank God for Foodpanda!

I would suspect you will find a 'cluster' anywhere in Bangkok now............. if you bother to test.

 

Lockdown extended for another week............I expect this to roll on for months now.

Well ChipButty's link to CM City Life is a good look for worry info. 9 people at that Lotus and then those 9 people certainly have been in contact with how many oodles more. Seems this is bigger than we think. And this news is a couple of days ago as well. CM total 9 dead and 70 looking to have harsh symptoms.

 

And so what about the other side of the street with the Rimping store and shopping center? It is only a rock throw away and surely someone who has been to the Lotus was over in that shopping center. Yikes!

Probably true, but not necessarily. I live in the area and may venture over to THAT side of the street once a year, whereas I visit the other two malls almost daily. There's no need to go over there when Rimping and Tops, the gym, restaurants, fresh market, night market, and all the banks are on the other side. Lotus suits a different demographic.

People crossing the road between the two almost every time I drive by. Don't you see them?

By coincidence cluster just about sums up the efforts made by this pathetic rancid government 🤔

This morning I saw some foreigners without their masks drinking and chit-chatting on benches outside the coffee shop in the Rimping area. 

 

Don't they realize that drinking inside or just outside shops are not allowed? You're supposed to buy the drinks and drink it inside your house/office under closed doors and not out in the open in crowded public places.

 

They were happily showing their unmasked faces just outside the Bangkok Bank sitting on benches.

 

I wonder why there are no police there to give them a fine for taking their masks off.

Why no you wonder about that?  Do you really think that is a location that warrants full time police presence?

Today the Gov of Phuket extended the restriction "lockdown" there until May 31.

BKK will be 7 days at a time it seems ...

Why did you not make a "Citizen's arrest" if it upsets you so much?

Why should I make an arrest when it's the police job who are paid to do so. They have the training and manpower to handle this situation.

 

It doesn't 'upset' me so much like you claimed here, what I am saying is nobody is above the law. Even the Thai PM was fined for not wearing a mask in public.

 

I'm sure they do this almost everyday flouting the mask wearing and drinking in a crowded public place. 

 

There are so many people walking near them going to Rimping Mee Chok and surrounding shops everyday. There is a risk of spreading the virus.

I guess I should have stayed in bed

My pillow wrapped around my head

Instead of waking up to find

A nightmare of a different kind ...

 

Thanks to the Monkees
