Why aren't the authorities doing any work with regard to making sure these factories are safe? It seems the majority of cases are usually in canning plants, factories, construction sites, etc. Dormitory style housing? Seems like something could be done to improve conditions, better monitoring, etc. Feels reckless.

Absolutely agree. 

 

It makes perfect sense that outbreaks will occur in areas of high population density such as slums, wet-markets,  factories, migrant labor & dorm type housing.... 

 

Something ‘could have been done’...... something ’still can be done’.... something ’should be done’  - it's not too difficult to send a hospital van with a couple of nurses to each factory and area of high population density and prioritise the people in these areas which have been identified as high risk areas for over a year. 

 

The reality...... those in positions of decision making power don’t care enough about the poor, the migrants, the factory workers.... These people are considered ‘lower down the food chain’ and hardly register on the radar of those who could impact change....  or at least they don’t register on the radar of those who could impact change until there is another outbreak at which point those making the decisions ‘react’ and barricade off the area. 

 

The response is one of careless disregard followed by outrageous over-reaction.

 

An inability of those in positions of decision making power to think ahead who possess only the ability to react.

Of course, it also possible that certain people in positions able to monitor possible sites of infection may be "influenced" by certain powerful/influential persons to not monitor.  How often do we see COVID-19 clusters in factories, building sites, hotels, etc. owned by very wealthy powerful Thais not named.  Eg, the recent cluster at a 5 star hotel in Hua Hin, or earlier this year the massive chicken processing plan in Saraburi?
