    I’m just wondering. They say that 90 new cases are local transmission and 42 are from proactive testing. But aren’t they proactively testing people who mostly caught the virus locally?

    Something about this disturbingly feels like a euphemism for saying that immigrant laborers are not actually part of the local community.

    We eat the seafood they produce. They purchase food and clothing and shelter from the local economy. And we can transmit COVID-19 to and from them. In what way are they not part of the local community, and in what way are the roughly thousand or so seafood workers in Samut Sakhorn who caught it from their place of work not local transmissions?
