Make him pm and kick out that manchild now! 😉

New variant will be everywhere anyway. It cannot be stopped. Let’s just move on shall we. 

Lets have a drink or two at a girly bar pub. That's the answer 🙂

and the good news start coming from Europe, apparently Covid cases have reached a plateau and should start decreasing next week, so panic didn't solve anything at the end

There's always room for a little more covid, especially at Christmas / New Year party season.

He called for calm and a measured and sensible reaction in terms of test and trace and ensuring that the vaccination program continues at full speed. 

Would seem to be the sensible way to go.

But lets hope it's not another Delta scenario in which we were always told was under control...

What cracks me up is the PM earlier telling the Thai people "not to panic" over Omicron, and now this business leader is basically telling the PM not to panic himself.

Calm down, jai yen-yen Prayut!

"Don't panic" Mr Mainwaring !

It's so weird that people push this kind of nonsense.

 

1, people are still getting normal illnesses.  2, it's completely expected that the measures against covid will also reduce incidents of cold and flu.

 

It's like someone finding it suspicious that they don't feel any breeze when the windows are closed.

For what it's worth my Amigos. In  London no body cares, everyone has been vaccinated and the ones that ain't are in intensive  care dying because they refused the vaccine on the grounds that they are imbeciles 🤣🤣

I have many family and friends in and around London who have opted to think for themselves and not be part of the herd and get vaccinated. It's a personal choice. Neither are they in Intensive care, sick or dying. Why preach such nonsense??. <deleted> get a grip !!

Give it time, early days, friends and family might just regret those choices!! South African's have high numbers of unvaccinated  with  cases doubling daily “JOHANNESBURG — Some South Africa hospital wards are jammed with patients infected with the omicron coronavirus variant as President Cyril Ramaphosa urged South Africans on Monday to get vaccinated. At this time, we think about 75% to 80% of hospitalizations are unvaccinated," https://www.voanews.com/a/south-africa-readies-hospitals-as-omicron-variant-drives-new-covid-19-wave-/6340912.html

 

That said, we haven't seen the number of death's yet which will eventually prove or disprove how deadly this variant is. Hopefully as the optimists say, it will just be another flu type virus we will learn to live with. Apart from the unvaccinated that will probably die or be seriously ill costing governments billions and overwhelming the NHS..  just saying...

Smart Thai industry leader.

 

Omicron is highly transmissible, but mild symptoms.

 

The virus was smart enough to add a snippet of cold virus DNA to itself, that is also part of human DNA.

 

That's right.  Human DNA contains DNA from viruses and bacteria.

 

That's why it's more transmissible. 

 

Our immune system thinks it's a human cell.

To date, the new variant has been proven to be nothing more than a pimple on the cheek of a teenager. How many proven deaths yet? Mild symptoms. 

 

So, let's maintain some perspective. Panic and alarm at this stage is silly. It may be a step in the less virulent stage of this pain in the *** virus.

Knee-jerk reactions describes many of the actions of the Uncle Tu government perfectly.

 

If clear heads with a reasonable management education would run the country, many Thais would be better off.

Yet in the UK cases are on the rise again ( albeit with increasing testing), but deaths and hospitalizations, which had been falling, look to be turning back upwards! All on top of 81% double jabbed.
