Reduced testing and reduced reporting of cases?   Failing that, I'd imagine the plan to open will be withdrawn and declared a big misunderstanding.

And years in between, not just months, is how herd immunity builds.  Just because one has a vaccination or had the virus does not mean they have built up an immunity to new variants.  Why do you think

Never gonna happen. And only 4 months away, how are they going to squeeze in all the 100s of meetings to decide all the 1000s of complicated rules and documents in such a short time?

One would think that a big component would be vaccination. It's been hopeless so far. 

Vaccination yes, but they need vaccines that are still effective against the variants. So they need 100 million doses of Pfizer or Moderna, as well as 25000 registered nurses to give the shots.

For those not following closely, a recent uptick of hospital walk-in cases has been followed by an uptick in overall  new cases. If this trend continues, this wave will not disappate until vaccinations are widespread.

Good morning David and pleased to read that after how many weeks ? you have now discovered reality. As you rightly say it will not dissipate until vaccinations are widespread, that would also mean receiving 2 doses at the correct interval, not just one. Given this corrupt governments stance to ignore almost 90% of the population then that could take some time don't you think ?

I just follow the data. 

 

We are not yet at the point where eradicating the wave is impossible before herd immunity is reached. But that point is getting near.

True but as yet no one has found a way to stop a Tsunami

Thanks for the color commentary. While Gov. Newsom has declared today a 'good day', California still logged 825 new COVID cases and 19 COVID-related deaths the same day.

Ergo what do you think will happen in Thailand when they open up and no restrictions are in place, and the vaccinations are not close to 70%. Try again.

I don't have the slightest idea. I just follow the play-by-play and leave the color commentary up to persons like yourself.

Prior to vaccination, Israel had thousands of cases every day. Today they have 27 new cases. 

 

The US went from 300,000 cases a day to 10,000. You are not keeping up on current events. 

 

Yes by vaccination but true herd immunity comes from people having the virus and the body building immunities. Not always possible though.

Along with the international community, Thailand is implementing a mass vaccination programme to create herd immunity and end the Covid-19 pandemic

 

The programme's success depends mainly on the speed of vaccine distribution and the assurance of people's safety after the vaccination. All vaccines are authorised for emergency use only. There is a chance that some vaccine recipients may experience adverse events.

 

To protect them from adverse effects after the vaccination, on May 3, the National Health Security Board introduced a no-fault compensation programme for individuals who find undesired outcomes after the vaccination.

 

Not only 49 million people whose health is insured under the Universal Coverage Scheme (UCS) will benefit from this programme, but another 17 million people from the Social Security Scheme and Civil Servant Medical Benefits Scheme will also be compensated for adverse events.

Although Thailand is not specifically mentioned in this, I think the article is equally relevant to Thailand’ state of play. The only difference is that whilst it’s suggested that the countries covered do not have an exit strategy and so are only cautiously opening as vaccination rates rise, Thailand has opted for 120 days or bust as an opening strategy

It'll be interesting to see how Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are distributed once they do arrive.  Will people who haven't yet been vaccinated be priority?  Or will these vaccines first go to the folks who have already gotten two jabs of a less effective vaccine - some of whom used influence or connections to skip the queue?
