SAMUT SAKHON, Jan 22 (TNA) – Samut Sakhon has launched a new round of mass Covid-19 testing for migrant workers at the Central Shrimp Market ahead of the planned market reopening next week.

 

The market is the first hotspot of the new wave of Covid-19 infections.

 

The province’s communicable disease committee agreed to reopen the market on Jan 26 or 27 if everything is ready.

Why stop at testing just the migrant workers.  Test everyone, its not just migrants that are found at the markets....

 

Better to just test migrants. Looks good for the Thai government that way and blame the unclean illegal immigrants. I reckon the authorities are hoping to find more cases in the Burmese just to prove the point that it's not Thais. Of course, if Thais are not tested it won't be Thais blamed! I feel truly sorry for the Burmese who have born the brunt of this. They are exploited whilst coming here to improve their lives and then vilified as transmitters of COVID-19.

What next? Bands with a star on it around their arms and a number tattooed on each and every one of them? Ridiculous!

Disgraceful. Thailand should be named and shamed on separating migrants from nationals in testing figures 

Sadly you are right and that is the mindset and mentality of those in power and privileged by the majority.

 

You will get the apologists trying to justify it but like I have heard from so many Hi so people in Thailand.  They are not racists they just don't like blacks (or people of colour for the PC Brigade). They just cant conceptualise that the not liking and the term racist are linked.

 

The same here. It is the foreigners fault and not the Thais. Just like when the poor Burmese were framed for the Koh Tao murders and you have a PM saying a Thai could never do that.

 

Thailand has a long long way to go to eradicate institutionalised xenophobia and racism. Firstly they have to understand what it means and like with this situation they believe they are right and not racists.

And with Government Ministers openly ranting hateful Xenophobic and Racist remarks that would have them arrested and charged in the West, it will never stop.
