MATICHON: According to the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Public Health, rules about mask wearing could be relaxed by mid-June. You would only need to wear indoors, in big crowds, or if you’re a person in a high risk group #Thailand

Finally! It looks like the requirement for wearing a mask outside will be dropped in mid-June. It was never a national requirement, but many provincial governors had made it compulsory with heavy fines. However the police turned a blind eye in tourist areas. #Thailand

I will still wear the mask but the proposal is by the Secretary he isn't the man! 🤣

Let skip this small stuff and get rid of TP.  Let the Pass be in the Past! 😂

It's about time to do away with this requirement.  If people still want to wear masks on the BTS or MRT that's fine.  Let them do so but make it voluntary.

If this peer review study is correct which covers Europe, masks are useless.   https://www.cureus.com/articles/93826-correlation-between-mask-compliance-and-covid-19-outcomes-in-europe    

 

Conclusions

While no cause-effect conclusions could be inferred from this observational analysis, the lack of negative correlations between mask usage and COVID-19 cases and deaths suggest that the widespread use of masks at a time when an effective intervention was most needed, i.e., during the strong 2020-2021 autumn-winter peak, was not able to reduce COVID-19 transmission. Moreover, the moderate positive correlation between mask usage and deaths in Western Europe also suggests that the universal use of masks may have had harmful unintended consequences.

 

The explanation given at https://principia-scientific.com/positive-correlation-found-between-mask-usage-and-covid-deaths/  explains the peer reviewed article quite well.  

 

Here's a parphrasing of the principa scientific article.  “The findings presented  suggest that countries with high levels of mask compliance did not perform better than those with low mask usage in the six-month period that encompassed the second European wave of COVID-19,”

trains (as well as busses and all means of public transport, are considered "indoors", same with underground stations, and they are also usually crowded, so yes mask stays there. Rightly so, in my opinion.
