Cops can't ignore orders when they roll downhill from the District Chief.

I'd wager this RTP squad wasn't wearing masks before this photo, as they humped 1km on foot, up and over the rocks, probably muttering expletives to themselves the whole way. 

Most are not RTPs. They are simple helpers from the village who got a temporary job from the island administration office and a chic waistcoat. Most of them are ok and do good. A few behave like 4 star police officers, but are completely unsuitable for the post. Before completely insignificant people suddenly have a bit of power and enjoy to bully people. TiT.

Special task force lol: really?

Clamber over rocks lol: yes, sitting all day, staring at their mobile phones and no exercise, it must have been difficult to walk a few meters and climb a rock 555

STF:PD

Special Task Force: Paperwork Division

It's a problem if it could lead to an increase in infections.  If they live together, then it's not really going to increase anything.  If they live separately then someone in the group could be infected, he/she could infect the other five members of the group, they could in turn infect multiple people each.  If this happens enough then you have incontrollable spread.  The members of the group could change also, so you have no idea how many people would actually be at risk.  And, of course, if this group was allowed to do it, then others would do it too.

 

Public gatherings are not allowed for this reason.

 ????‍♀️ you can’t actually believe this nonsense. Literally no one that is wealthy or educated is even remotely concerned about covid. We have massive yacht parties in Phuket every weekend. Many US billionaires and Thai officials are regulars. Nobody wears a mask. Nobody cares about covid. None of us are vaccinated. And guess what, there is not a single thing anyone can do about it…because all the most powerful people in Thailand are literally hanging out with us. Wake up folks.

I have a bad feeling about groups like this during a pandemic. Usually they all get infected at the same time, best of luck!

And where is written that if he/she goes shopping doesn't wear a mask???

The rationale is that Thai people have complained to the district chief that one or more have not worn masks, which is the rule imposed here. I would suggest that occurred when they go shopping, not when they're sitting at their remote beach.

 

As you are aware, Thai people are paranoid about catching Covid 19, and any laxity from farangs is like pouring petrol on a fire.  Apart from that, at least one of the group must have annoyed a Thai, for that extreme reaction by the district chief who cannot lose face if he ignores a complaint.

 

Best to double dose vaccinate everyone...

If these are people that live there, they are no greater risk than any local Thai. They have taken the steps to isolate themselves from anybody else. Thais will sit down in large numbers without taking any such precautions. Rank hypocrisy on the part of the rat dobbers and the swat team that would never visit a group of Thais.

After their 1 km trek they found groups of 5-6 foreigners flouting the rules with many not wearing masks

So what are the rules ? I thought a group of 5 was OK with social distancing and masks. Seems OK at wats and Chinese temples though init.

What is the problem with people who self isolate ?!

when will cops start to feel idiots in this world ?! they are the puppets of stupid governments and should fight with who control them, not with the population.

Many western countries are open again. So, surely if they want to live this type of lifestyle, they can just go back home. But instead they decide to stay here and break the law? I don't get it! 

"they can just go back home". Can they? Speaking for the UK, first they have to get a plane ticket, the easiest part, then they have to get the Cvirus check, another easy part apart from getting ripped off with the cost, then there's the PLF which has to be done 48 hours or less before the plane lands in the UK, which takes it down to 36 hours, and less if you have to change planes before you get there, and what if the plane leaves Bangkok late which happens regularly? and it has to be done online, all done before the plane leaves. Easy, isn't it?

I've had a lot of UK friends go back to their country over the past couple of months and they have had no issues at all.

Who's that?  The people who write the stupid rules, the people they send to enforce the stupid rules, or the people who break the stupid rules?

 

Dollars to donuts they'll be stopping at a crowded market on their way home, where they'll mingle with dozens or hundreds of locals, touching and breathing all over everything, and each other.  It's not as if hanging out at the beach is any more super-spreader prone than a dozen other things they're permitted to do that day.

 

I agree with you, it should all be banned until everyone is vaccinated.

But when people are  eating in groups they don't spread ????

Right , i certainly do not disagree with that.  The new covid laws should apply to both scenarios until they have a very high % of people vaccinated.

Not that you know of anyway, would you like to confirm that all these friends had no issues with the PLF? Have you spoken to them all about it?
