    It’s a trap.
    The visitor pays all the expenses to stay in Thailand. Has not got the virus.
    But the Thais declare them contagious, and put them in an expensive hospital for the necessary operation. The surgital extraction of money from their wallets.
    There are NO independent virus tests. No second opinion.

    Why do I get the sneaking suspicion that the cases you are discovering were caught in quarantine??

      No I did not write that.
      The ferang can be grabbed anywhere.
      Like they used to grab ferangs for littering in Bangkok.
      It was only a cigarette butt, but it was an easy source of income for the police.
      A ferang will be targeted now in Thailand.
      There are so few of them they are prize turkeys for a fine.

        So …. “ferangs” are just being “grabbed anywhere” off the street and tested for Covid-19?

      Where else would they be discovered, that’s were they are taken too directly from the airport, it’s the reason they are taken there for 14 days quarantine, to prevent the virus entering the country.

    Meanwhile Thailand refuses to test citizens in Thailand. A 80+ year old citizen with severe flu like symptoms was not tested for covid because “there is no covid19 in his living area” according to the doctor. Uhuh…

      Sorry, Harry, but far from refusing to test its citizens as you suggest, everybody admitted to hospital in Thailand is automatically tested for Covid-19 regardless of whether they’re Thais, farangs, or anything else.
