Something not quite right about these virtually flatlining figures, day after day.

Optimistic nature: These figures show real control of the pandemic. Amazing Thailand! Pessimistic nature: Covid is impossible to control since the West has failed in this task. Consequently th

If something said or done by a Thai feels not quite right, just doesnt add up, a tad irksome, then trust your own instincts and common sense as being the more likely providers of reality.

Did they say where the Mueang cases were?

On April 10th the majority were at the Flintstones pub which is a long way out of the city, but not that far from me. Hopefully that cluster has been dealt with.

New commercials started on television yesterday showing Covid being knocked to the floor of a boxing ring with the quote of "Vaccinate to help knock out Covid".  They are truly doing outreach, however, how many do not watch the news or regular television.

Mostly family transmission and markets I read in Chonburi.

RIP to the 34 people who lost their lives.

It's not showing any signs of abating, is it? Just seven weeks until the Phuket sandbox idiocy pilot scheme is due to start, and to allow entertainment venues, bars and eateries to reopen they're going to need far fewer deaths and daily new cases. Maybe they'll get lucky, and maybe the authorities will simply gerrymander the numbers, but looking at the figures over the last month it's kind of hard to see how it's going to happen naturally.

So sad isn't it.  Yet strange that unlike almost all other countries,  in Thailand it appears it has only affected the less well off when it comes to deaths. Now we know from the world records so far that generally it is the less  well off that are disproportionately affected but for Thailand to have 98% deaths amongst the disadvantaged of the nation is surprising.
