    Just shows how necessary the quarantine period is, even after testing, even though it won’t suit some agendas.

    “Thailand officials have reported 8 new Covid-19 cases from 5 different countries today, with all cases being asymptomatic and in discovered whilst the recently arrived passengers were in quarantine.”
    The all cases being asymptomatic is the point.

    me: doc, I think I’m sick.
    doc: how you feeling?
    me: I feel ok.
    doc: do you have a fever or cough?
    me: no, none.
    doc: are you having trouble breathing?
    me: no, I breath fine.
    doc: are you achy?
    me: no.
    doc: Hmm. You are not sick. Go home now.

    But in Thailand, they’ll just give you a test that often gives false positives and lock you up for two weeks claiming you’re infected with a deadly virus.

    Exactly as they do in the majority of countries, contrary to what’s suggested here, from Japan to Australia, Taiwan to Canada, India to New Zealand – this is the norm world-wide, not the exception.

    Meanwhile in the UK, as in a relatively few other countries, they don’t give you a test on arrival but rely on arrivals from some countries “self-isolating”.

    UK: 42,000+ deaths from Covid-19, with the death rate and number of cases doubling every fortnight.

    Thailand: 59 deaths from Covid-19, with one death and a steady number of cases since June.

    Now I wonder who’s got it right …..

    LIARS. They are just creating mugs for quarantine for which they will receive commission.

      That’s an awful lot of countries and people that are liars.

      The oft repeated auggestion that Thailand is alone in this and it’s all about “commission” and corruption would be laughable if only it weren’t so mindlessly dangerous.

    “… in Thailand” as in the majority of other countries, from India to Japan, Canada to New Zealand, Australia to Taiwan.

    UK: 42,000+ deaths from Covid-19, with cases doubling every fortnight.

    Thailand: 59 deaths, with one death and cases at the same rate since June.

    Now, who’s probably got it right … ?
