    All these figures of Thai people testing positive when entering the country, kind of blows the myth out of the water that Thai people can’t catch it. So either they are mainly asymptomatic like 95% of the world anyway or there are many untested positives in Thailand itself.

    One wonders what would happen if they had the testing capacity of other countries where positives are rising simply because of the increased testing such as the UK. If they didn’t have all that testing society would be largely in the dark. The same as they are in Thailand.

    Imagine if they did 10,000 tests in Bangkok tomorrow. How many would test positive . I’d bet on around 1500-2000. That would blow the myth out of the water then.

    I don’t believe it.
    My theory is they are inventing it.
    They find symptoms to justify expensive quarantine and testing to make money.
    Do they have second opinions?
    They probably just have a cold off the air con.
    I would not believe a Thai if they told me water was wet.

    Better to control the spread in an open economy, than imagine Thailand can stay in splendid isolation until a vaccine is deployed.
