If it wasn't for the Mandatory masks in vehicles, where would we be?   

Thank you @TallGuyJohninBKK As usual providing us with data that we can review and see exactly what and where things are happening.  Hard to make people understand that we are in for the long haul wit

Definitely not the right direction for the numbers to be headed. I really do not see Covid being resolved here now, for a very long time and really shows how lucky we were to temporarily dodge the bul

Thailand plans to waive its mandatory quarantine for vaccinated visitors to its capital Bangkok and top tourist destinations from October, an official said on Friday, in a bid to revive a key industry battered by coronavirus travel curbs.


Hopefully, this does not blowback on them and cause a major issue when folks start to become infected by a different variant carried in.

To put that in perspective, New York which has a similar population, a little under at about 8.5 million is showing a 2.41% positive rate, about 2,500 new cases per day at around 100,000 tests.


Mass testing really does work. 




This what you are talking about?




Keep is mind, the outreach testing in BKK isnt the ONLY testing they're doing. It's special outreach testing. All the hospitals and clinics and such are still doing the regular patient based testing as they've been doing all along. So you'd need to add those numbers to the outreach testing numbers for BKK to get an apples to apples comparison...  (get that? or maybe apples to mangos?  🙂
