BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand's cabinet on Wednesday agreed to extend a state of emergency until the end of November, a government spokesman said, maintaining the security measure put in place in late March to contain its coronavirus outbreak.

 

Thailand has confirmed only 3,759 coronavirus infections, with most recent cases imported. There have been 59 deaths.

It recently received a group of foreign visitors for the first time since a ban on commercial fights was imposed in April.

IMHO, by doing this the good general is "Micro Managing" the country, may as well get rid of the provincial governors! Also helps with the unrest seeing as though he had to rescind his "Political Emergency Decree" a few days ago = Embarrassed?

I'm a hotel owner in Laos. 90% of tourist arrivals into Laos come via Thailand (mainly Suvarnaphoum) as its transit hub, so this decision is a further blow to the 1,000s of hotels, guesthouses, restaurants and all their employees that have lost their jobs since March. In all honesty, I believe Laos will turn its back to TH and start looking towards Viet Nam as a transit hub. Its important to know that decisions made by TH also severely and directly affect all regional neighbours. Fingers crossed.

Thank you Khun Prayut Chan O Cha and the government, obviously it gives them more management capabilities that assist with keeping COVID19 out of Thailand while allowing folks to go about their daily routine. 

If it helps to keep folks safe then it is a good thing.

Why look to Vietnam? They've also closed borders...

Ah yes, what is best for the masses as envisioned by the few. And don't forget kids that old classic: If you've nothing to hide you've nothing to fear.

 

To quote a personal hero of mine: "The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers."

In all probability, Vietnam will already have an exit plan ready, and will open her borders way before Thailand. TH is just so unpredictable at the moment.

How predictable. The Coronacrisis is a very convenient thing for the generals, and they use it appreciatively as a welcome political tool to protect their troughs. So obvious.

I guess the almost 500,000 new infections yesterday and over 7,000 deaths globally had an impact on their thinking.  Oh, and the virus raging next door with many crossing the border illegally to escape or seek medical help.  Who would have thought.

Really, I thought Thailand was and has been COVID free for a while. This would suggest that we are being told a pack of lies. Or is there another 

They want quality tourists from now on. Check out the statements of the first female TAT Sports and Tourism Minister.

Prayut and his toadies seem hell bent on destroying what’s left of the Thai economy. My heart goes out to the millions of our Thai friends who are suffering mightily while their government perpetuates this lunacy.

What are the state of emergency rules please, anyone?

Quite simple. 

1- Wear mask in public places.
2- Wash your hands more often.
3 - Social distancing.
4- If you have any Covid symptoms, trouble breathing , coughing etc, then please seek medical advice right away.

On the positive side,  I did like the photo of all the Thais wearing masks covering their mouthes and noses. Just a couple of exceptions,  where Thais  were oblivious to their surroundings and living in their own world. No society is perfect (smile). Then again compared to my home country Thailand is perfect in this regard. My appologies to the Thai bashers who think this mask thing is a major inconvenience and just a joke. I  really hate seeing foreigners putting on their masks to get into malls and then taking them off immediatley when they pass security.  Complete disrespect.  Once in a while I get questions from Thais aking me why I am not back in my home country. The inference being that I should be in my home country and not spreading covid19. I really can't blame them when I see how foreigners behave and talk. Fortunatley a lot of Thais can't understand what the foreigners are saying.

With so many illegals sneaking over the border from infected countries i do see their reasoning behind this.

Also don't forget there has been a number of untested  truck drivers coming in from Myanmar, who have been allowed to walk around freely outdoors.

What pandemic!

 

The students on the streets maybe?

By January when the money runs out there will be more than just students on the streets.

Unfortunately however the NWO stooges will have accomplished their goal as the economy got murdered.

Not misleading at all.  It's a state by state issue.  NOT countrywide.  Some states are being overwhelmed, as the article points out.

 

How does 60k infections nationally get us to overwhelmed hospitals in any state? For the entire pandemic there were 7k hospitalizations in Colorado, most at the peak during the 1-2 month period. We're not anywhere near that point now and even then it couldn't overwhelm hospitals. This is so over but the media won't let it go away. All we get is fear mongering from them.
