Yet numb nuts and his cronies were at the airport welcoming the first batch of Covid spreaders.

Yes, I wonder which one of them will be the first one to go down on it, and the  blame some westerner he bumped into

Chinese hospitals & crematoriums are stretched for capacity.

Thailand can always provide some spare capacity to big Bro, until demand for locals climb


Re China and the impact of its incoming tourism to Thailand....  The headline below seems a bit misleading, since the 90% figure appears to be a cumulative rate of COVID infection since the start of the pandemic, and NOT meaning 90% of the province's population are infected NOW.... But the article nonetheless lays out the implications.

90% of people in China province infected with Covid, says local health official

Data from the health commission for central Henan suggests 88 million people in the province may have had the virus


Almost 90% of people in China’s third most populous province have now been infected with Covid-19, a top local official has said, as the country battles an unprecedented surge in cases.


Covid cases are expected to soar further as the country celebrates lunar new year later this month, with millions set to travel from big cities to visit vulnerable older relatives in the countryside.


But the World Health Organization has said China is under-reporting the scale of the outbreak and international health experts estimate more than 1 million people in the country could die from the disease this year.

Err.. they just decided to allow people in, unchecked and untested, willy-nilly, from what I believe is currently the most infected country in the world.... so what is this about?

Regarding China and their outbound tourists:


Almost a fourth of air passengers screened from China had COVID-19, report reveals

January 14, 2023


Italian officials who screened 556 airline passengers from two Chinese provinces in late December found that almost a quarter of them tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, with one flight having 42% of passengers infected, according to a report yesterday in Eurosurveillance.


Authorities conducted the screening from Dec 26 to Dec 29 after Omicron cases spiked dramatically in Beijing and other Chinese cities. The screening took place at two major airports: Fiumicino Leonardo da Vinci in Rome and Malpensa in Milan.


Of the 556 passengers from China screened, 126 (22.7%) tested positive via polymerase chain reaction testing. The proportion testing positive for SARS-CoV-2 per flight ranged from 11% to 42%. The flights originated from either Nanjing in Jiangsu province or Hangzhou or Wenzhou in Zhejiang province."
