Why Do Foreigners Fully Vaccinated Need To Be Quarantined ?

Probably because there is no way to prove the farang has been vaccinated. They are working on somesort of vaccine passport. I've got a email receipt - you can see how that will be a problem.


Well, I got a CDC card, which should be proof enough for pretty much everybody and everyone. Going through 14 days of hotel quarantine next week in Bangkok, amazing requirement to enter the Kingdom (me being fully vaccinated!). Even the COSTE app I have been required to download considers me VERY LOW RISK, the mind boggles...

You are in the wrong country if you still ask why something happens in Thailand. It happens, there is no "why". Get used to that and life becomes so much easier. And please don't ask why. 😉 

If you are not willing to spend two weeks in a hotel to be able to see your family then it seems your family is not as important to you as you pretend. 

There's a story around where 8 vaccinated baseball players all caught COVID. If you can catch it you can spread it.   I believe the Thai authorities are correct in insisting on 14 days

People flouting the rules early is a main reason reason why this keeps spreading.

You don't think that failing to prevent thousands of people travelling home for Songkran has anything to do with it then?

Data keeps changing and people don't know what they are doing. Just look at the mask debate and 6' rules if you have any doubt about this.

 

Wear your mask and do your quarantine and stop complaining until things settle down! Get back in your room!

Songkran, not shutting every last bar down over a year ago. Allowing Thai women crossing the borders back and forth between Burma and Thailand with zero punishment why she and her friends wandered everywhere with the virus. So many major mistakes while they were so focused on their quarantinefor BIG $$$.

I have to ask: how does quarantine make the Thai Govt. big bucks????

Whatever happened to holding back the ocean waves or sweeping the beach? 

Too much effort for too little return. 

Hey, whatever gets you to go to sleep. Having the resources to do as you wish, is of course a luxury I guess.

Having a backbone, (as you put it) in Thailand and similar countries can be the fastest route to stress, high blood pressure, violence committed against you and potential jailtime. (I know, from personal jailtime experience...).

 

Some of us just like to have a quiet life and not rock the boat.  Their country, up to them.

Yeah I can appreciate this post.

Good luck with ASQ here. Too bad you have to go thru it. 

 

The original owner of HEB stores, Howard Butt, lived a few blocks from me in Corpus Christi in the late 50's. So I recognize the Vax location. Texas I'm guessing.

It is totally ridiculous to quarantine people who are fully! vaccinated!

 

A test can detect 10 molecules of Covid, but it takes billions of molecules to become sick and to be contagious.

 

Wise up everybody let these people go home!

Assuming you believe COVID is a serious problem.

Not exactly correct.  If you are fully vaccinated, your chances of getting the virus are greatly diminished.   The current studies on those that do contract the virus show that they are low risk for spreading the virus.   

It would seem that quarantine may be overkill, at least an extended quarantine.
