    The only thing that genuinely surprises me is how few farangs in Pattaya are infected, seriously ill or dead (any?).

    No “hidden message”, I’m genuinely surprised.

    They all die from the far more serious disease called DBB – Death By Balcony. DBB is a regular cause of death for many foreign men in Thailand. Virologists believe it is spread by Thai women under the age of 40 who are often found in close proximity to the victim ….

    @Simon Small – Maybe because ferangs in Pattaya are smart enough NOT to be tested, because if they do, even if it is only asymptomatic, the Thais with their faces contorted with concern, pity, and sympathy – that is hard to do with just one face – will whisk aforesaid ferang off with sirens blaring and lights flashing to the nearest hospital.
    Where, the ferang will receive the most expensive treatment that money can buy. The ferang’s money can buy, that is.
    You really are quite naive Small Simon . . .

    Most “normal” countries have one major focus when it comes to management of Covid, to ensure hospitals and the wider healthcare system is not overwhelmed. All the lockdowns and restrictions in various countries have been to control this key issue. Failure to do so is catastrophic as we are seeing in India. It therefore makes no sense to fill up hospitals, or consume valuable medical staffs time be holding Covid patients in hospital. I understand the need to ensure they are isolated and Thais will find the need to earn money more important. However the government needs to find ways to deal with this. A combination of financial support to those who test positive and isolate to steep fines for those who break it would help. Dragging people in to hospital is nothing short of utter madness unless they are sick.

    They will not cure this virus they have to learn to live with it. Lockdowns don’t work the death rate is so low compared to cancers and heart disease. Time to wake up and get back to a normal life.

    “Thais … will whisk aforesaid ferang off with sirens blaring and lights flashing to the nearest hospital.

    But they won’t, @toby andrews.

    They’ll whisk them off (or let them drive themselves) to the nearest FIELD hospital.

    Which is free.

    “You really are quite naive”

    No, @toby andrews, not “naive” just better informed.

    “Most “normal” countries have one major focus when it comes to management of Covid,”

    You may not have noticed it, @Nigel, but due to their “management of Covid” and their “focus” most “normal” countries (by which you apparently mean most WESTERN countries as your criteria don’t apply to any others) have a thousand times more fatalities than Thailand and the other countries that also have mandatory isolation for positive Covid cases, as well as extensive and protracted lockdowns.

    “Dragging people in to hospital is nothing short of utter madness unless they are sick”

    If you look at the countries that have either kept Covid fatalities low from the start or changed policy to successfully reduce Covid fatalities, all (with the exception of Taiwan) have full supervised mandatory state quarantine (and Taiwan only gives exceptions under very specific circumstances (sole residency)).

    That’s “ALL”: A-L-L.

    Not only Thailand.

    Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, etc.

    Some other countries have used military barracks rather than hospitals, but ALL countries that have had successful “management of Covid” have had mandatory state quarantine (with Taiwan as the only partial exception).

    With the previous numbers in Thailand there were sufficient hospital beds available and hospital was a better option for most than a military barracks. That’s no longer possible with the increase in numbers, so military-run field hospitals are the next-best option.

    Thailand’s vaccine roll out has been appalling, beyond any doubt, and it fully deserves to be criticised to the max.

    Criticising Thailand’s “management of Covid”, though, when ALL countries that have been similarly successful have similar “management”, unlike “most “normal” countries” that have had extensive and protracted lockdowns and a thousand times more fatalities, isn’t just ignoring the facts but is simply moronic (or “utter madness”, if you prefer).

    Par for the course here, but moronic nevertheless.
