    Thailand has a highly effective quarantine system utilizing ASQ Hotels and intermittent COVID-19 tests before allowing incoming travelers to enter Thailand’s general population. These procedures are being scaled up to process more and more classes of people and may very well become the new norm for everyone wishing to enter Thailand. This would have sounded very strange indeed before this pandemic. However, as more and more Chinese Doctors and Lab technicians from Wuhan Research Lab reveal the research being conducted with the Coronavirus it has become very clear that the Wuhan lab was performing “extensive manipulation of bio-informatics” to bio-warfare weapons. It was announced today that the Wuhan lab will be providing “extensive training on the manipulation of pathogens and bio-informatics” to Pakistani scientists “to help Pakistan develop its own virus collection database”, for the development of biological weapons. It is unconscionable that the world allows such activities to continue.

    The PCR tests are not effective to find viruses. They only find some genetic material, which can be anything, for example exosoms or some rest of a former vaccine. So there are lots of false positives and this will never finish. But the epidemic is finished for long time. And nobody has isolated this virus inside a human body. Maybe there is no virus, maybe this virus has never existed. But it’s a good pretext for maintaining the state of emergency and people inside fear. Guess for what ?

Thai minister encourages hotels to stop price-gouging expats | The Thaiger

Tourism and Sports Ministry, Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn, is asking hotels to offer “fair packages to expats and resident foreigners, and avoid price discrimination”. He said that there are 2 million foreign residents who would be able to travel domestically at this stage and contribute to a local revival of tourism before the borders are re-opened for general tourism. The ministry suggested that expats should be encouraged to travel domestically instead of heading out […]
