A subcommittee of Thailand’s Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) has approved another 2-month extension to the Emergency Decree, which was due to expire at the end of this month, and has resolved to postpone the country’s reopening from October 1st to November 1st. These proposals will be submitted to the full meeting of the CCSA, chaired by Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha, on September 27th.

 

The reopening to fully vaccinated foreign tourists without quarantine in Bangkok, Chonburi (Pattaya, Bang Lamung, and Sattahip districts), Chiang Mai (Muaeng, Mae Rim, Mae Taeng and Doi Tao districts), Prachuap Khiri Khan Province (Hua Hin), and Phetchaburi (Cha-am) will now be on November 1st.

 

This is to allow more time for at least 70% of the population to be fully vaccinated, which is one of the prerequisites for reopening borders to foreign tourists.

Where does this 70% figure come from?  Why is it so magical?  Never is 70% of the population fully vaccinated going to create herd immunity.

It is a figure that has been frequently bandied about by the WHO regarding herd immunity

The WHO are puppets of the CCP and have no creed regarding the pandemic.

Pretty sure I'd get high odds on the state of emergency being lifted before the next election

What election?

70% vaccinated people was only for the Alpha Covid, but it seems that herd immunity for the Delta only can be reached by 100% vaccination... So...70% with 1 jab I don't know what that is but surely not enough for both

Why do they need a sub-committee to come up with an idea, put it to the real committee, just to.... ohhh never mind?

[rhetorical question]

No it's not, the WHO position is that the percentage needed to achieve herd immunity from covid-19 is unknown.

OK Then,

 

Herd immunity is established when most of the population has been vaccinated and it varies according to the actual disease.

 

Scientists in the UK and other countries came up with a number of around 70% based on other outbreaks and pandemics and possibly informed guesstimates as it is a new virus.

Herd Immunity with Delta seems a pipedream to some virologists.

there is no herd immunity, the medical experts believe that we will need to live with it, period.

 

November is too soon anyhow, even with 70% vaccinated, people are not ready yet to travel

 

March 2022, and summer 2022 should get better

They still don't get it: the risk of spreading the virus for people who are 2 times vaccinated and have multiple PCR tests is close to zero! 

 

The nonsense of SHA hotel or quarantine does just not make any sense but probably money for the hotels.

We should take into account that many of the 30% unvaccinated people

  1. are currently too young to qualify for vaccination
  2. have gained immunity due to infection with SARS-Cov-2 (but preferably should still get vaccinated)

Yup it is starting to like December first or December fifteenth will be more likely the

opening date for Thailand to actually start to re open. November first is too close and

even November 15th, is not that far into the future.  Thai government is pretty much like

like most governments, Not that fast. Like most governments there are people who have no clue

in their present position, and no experience either. That seems to be the case with Anutin, for sure.

In my opinion of course..

Geezer
