Alcohol in Pattaya is not the subject here.

exactly!  you do understand my meaning.

 

the idiotic behavior of people in other countries is irrelevant.

So we all get bitter and twisted about Thai people ignoring the government but no one comments about the idiotic behaviour of Americans in Florida, Georgia , California etc. Or Hong Kongers doing the same, or Japanese, or Germans! 

Probably because this site is Thai Visa.

 

Funny that, eh?

Meanwhile at the Hua Hin checkpoint, cars streaming in from Bangkok and police sitting in a roadside tent, on their phones and eating.  No temperature check or questions. Drive straight through. Virus is bound to spread unchecked

Sure, and they have the money to pay the fines. :whistling:

Yet, i see locals ignoring the rules everyday, but we don't hear news of piling corpses at hospitals and crematoriums, so it could be fair to say that covid19 doesn't appear to be so dangerous in Thailand.

And get ARRESTED for going to the beach

Mmm, could be because we are in Thailand, this is a forum mainly about Thailand and the post was made by Rooster so it was probably translated from a Thai news source.

Bye bye love
Bye bye sweet drunkiness (again)
Hello being booze-e-less (again)
I feel like I want to laugh and cry (again)

 

For me I will be well stocked up to ward off anxiety from their lack of IQ and idiotic disregard of having common sense. They can only blame themselves now.

What is the one thing that Thailand and every other country in the world needs? We've been told it time and time again haven't we. Herd immunity, the world need herd immunity.

 

Are we ever going to get to the stage of herd immunity by hiding away in social isolation and hoping that Covid 19 will just 'go away?' No we are not.

 

So here we have the first signs of break out, and the Thais are in the vanguard. Good on them.

 

What do we want?

 

Herd immunity.

 

When do we want it?

 

NOW!

I salute the Thai people for finally standing up for their right to freedom.

No reason to continue lockdown and bankrupt the people.  You sheeple

that are afraid can stay home.  Always Question Authority

Many people try to obey the rules, some don't. It's the same all over the world. Yesterday evening went out for thirty minutes to get food. Most people wearing masks, some not, some sometimes because of phone, drinking, eating, smoking. Saw a few trucks of packed construction workers, not all wearing masks.

Thais have never been very good at following rules !!

 

And I will always beaten by reality.

I really expected it would not happen this year.

Even out here in the sticks there was an unusual amount of traffic on the highway towards Udon.

Selfish arrogant ignorant dismissal of emergency decree, forbidding inter-provincial travel for all but necessary purposes. This kind of flaunting the rules, which were made to protect the nation, is exactly the kind of recklessness that could cause a resurgence of coronavirus. Millions are staying home and exercising social distancing, to do the right thing, but meanwhile some <deleted> think they can just do whatever they want. Bastards!  

Captain Bob, do you think just this long weekend people have started travelling between provinces? Well i can tell you it definately has not, there's many references to people doing it throughout this site.

 

I will also travel next week, not concerned about check points at all.

 

I would say within the last week the amount of vehicles on the roads and people out and about carry on with the normal lives ( as much as possible ) has increased enormously.

 

How long are you going to remain locked up?

This will be unpopular but i really don't see the big deal. if leaving Chonburi which boasts one of the lowest infection rates and death rates , then we do not have infected people returning home. The lockdown is set to lift as the holidays end anyways so people will be free to move about the country regardless.

Perhaps the news about piling up corpses has been banned.

They have checkpoints at province borders but the police are just waving people through.  The government is not enforcing it. 

 

Anyway all this lockdown, social distancing BS is just prolonging the whole thing.  Better to let it run it's course and be done with it.

 

Those saying people are selfish because they want to go enjoy themselves are being selfish themselves.  Stop being afraid of healthy people.

People believe that the wuhan virus nightmare is over. Is it over yet????

Folk are starting to be wooed into a false sense of security due to the Gov,t rhetoric on the Virus.

Statements such as - Chinese Tourists to come to Chang Mai as soon as July Etc do nothing to stop people being stupid and raising their hopes

Good for them. Some of the rules imposed lately deserve to be broken.

Farang set example so Thais thought ok to do.

How true:

in June 2014 we had the PM hating George Orwell's 1984, with those reading it charged with 'eating a sandwich with political intent'.
Yet more recently, he gave Animal Farm the thumbs up.
