  1. It would be very interesting to know how many people have been tested in quarantine since July, and how many of them tested positive .

    Because if lets say 10% of the returnees are positive, it would mean 10% of the global population is infected.

    it would also be very good to know how many of the positive ones remain asymptomatic , as it would be a good indicator about the real face of the virus.

  2. Any country that thinks they can beat COV19 by shutting everyone out until a vaccine is found.

    1. There is no guarantee when or if the vaccine will work

    2. I am not a medic, but it must be nigh on impossible for any country to hide from Covid 19. So Thailand has 9 cases of new infections, surely the country NEEDS some infections in order to deal with them.

    The country cant stay locked for ever or else it will become N Korea v2
