Sanook reported that there were now virtually no beds for Covid patients in Bangkok and surrounding areas as they were all full.

 

With the health service under increasing strain from large numbers of cases of the virus many people waiting for a bed were deciding to go to their hometowns to seek help.

 

Many were not in the system and represented a great risk of the spread of the virus. 

 

The authorities have told people not to travel under their own steam. They have been told to check with hospitals in their hometowns and local authorities before deciding whether to return home to look for a bed and treatment.

 

Sanook published a list of 31 provinces where people could contact the authorities and possibly find a bed. 

 

These included Korat, Sa Kaeo, Si Saket, Nong Khai, Khon KaenLoei, Phitsanuloke, Singburi, Lampang, Nakhon Phanom, Kalsin, Phayao, Phrae, Mahasarakham, Ubon, Yasothon, kamphaeng Phet and several other provinces.

they travel to hospitals, hospitels and field hospitals.

they don't go shopping there at markets and malls.

It's wise to use all health base, not just to overstretch one province, because it might collapse.

In europe during the first wave countries were sending their patients to neighbouring countries for treatment when they couldn't cope alone with infection spikes

Prayut's plan is working!

 

Let the infected flee to the country side, while at the same time concentrate 80% of vaccination to Bangkok and a few surrounding provinces. 

In 3-4 weeks the outbreak is under control in greater Bangkok and the Czar can declare victory.

Meanwhile, expect the virus to burn through the country side and the deep south. Nameless souls will perish,  but that is the cost of doing business for a military government.

He already bungled by getting the islands like Phuket all vaccinated instead of the epicentre of the outbreak.

 

All done to get 500 travel agents to visit so they could all save face and pretend the country is ready for tourism again.

 

Abhorrent mismanagement.

 

Lucky he is totally unaccountable to anyone except the proprietor.

April in Issan, even after Songkran  showed daily infections in the 20's Now its almost six hundred !I think the  workers from the red zones  made a big impact on daily numbers !

 

I remember attending a party back in the beginning of April ,all the falangs were in agreement that being in Thailand(Issan), was the best place to be and that we were so lucky !

Can’t blame them for seeking help in their hometowns, but this is sure to spread the virus throughout Thailand.

It has already, other provincial numbers are escalating.

Residents in those (Isaan) provinces maybe think differently:


Khon Kaen people don't leave each other. Give 200 sets of happiness bags to those affected by Covid-19 per day.

Dan Sai hospital suddenly has 10 cases, and  I've just heard there are two new positive cases in a village nearby.

No sign of any vax being available in the region as the BKK people spread the virus around.

If you book a flight out of here and have a pre flight test a day or so before at a BKK lab where they send you the result later in the day by email, guess if you are unlucky enough to be asymptomatic and have a positive result.....................what then?

 

Your in a  Bkk hotel staring at an email from the lab positive for covid, youre not flying out and their are no hospitals beds available in the Bkk area....... a worrying scenario.

 

Guess you go back to your home area and isolate but any travel bus plane etc would put your fellow passengers at risk..,,,,,,,,how are positive tested Thais in Bkk going back to the provinces for treatment or hospital bed going to get their without putting others at risk of infection?

' Hope for the best but prepare for the worst '

 

Unfortunately the government have done too much of the former and not enough of the latter. 

 

So now we have arrived at this scenarion :

Authorities have said that they are doing the best job possible to spread the virus to every province in Thailand.
Sgt. Cap. Maj. Gen. Sadsak Dimpildik stated while handing out provincial hospital flyers to Red Zone residence with 38C fevers fleeing to the provinces, "It's difficult to actually spread the virus to all 76 provinces which is why we have opened the Red Zones wide and have assisted citizens by telling them to check into the hospitals near their homes immediately on their arrival and infect as many people as possible in the waiting rooms.  Honestly.  When there were virtually no case no Thai in the right mind would get a shot. But if our Thailand-JaiDee/Thailand-Infects-Together scheme works, every Thai in the country will know someone with Covid.  They'll be lining up for a kilometer to get shots by next week!  We're creating panic, but a righteous panic!"
 

But Sgt. Cap. Maj. Gen. Sadsak.  There are almost no vaccines available!

"Details details, detail.  Talk to the Czar and that construction billionaire in a medical smock, that's not my problem.  My responsibility is to get the Covid-Infected uban-dwellers out into the rural countryside to infect as many rural poor as possible.  You know?  To scare them into demanding shots!"

This is Sally Baiporkchop reporting from an unidentifiable provincial border crossing <cough> somewhere in Thailand <cough, cough, sneeze>  More tonight on [email protected]_Six <cough cough cough>

The bed shortage is entirely manmade.

 

It's the result of sending in hospital so called "positive cases"... the famous "asymptomatic cases" (read fake PCR tests).

 

Stop the stupid testing with PCR tests with CT too high, and use the hospital beds for people who are really sick and who need medical care.

 

That's the first step.

 

Step number 2 : because we are (allegedly) "at war with a terrible pandemic" use everything we have : hydroxycholoroquine, ivermectin, and even quercetin !

Do not wait for the green light of Big Pharma or the civil servants/politicians at WHO... It will be too late.

I've been banging that drum for three months now and today?  Here we are.  It was like sitting on a mountain top watching two trains traveling toward each other on the same track rounding a mountain curve.  You're powerless to do a da*m thing but marvel at the utter insanity of it all.
