    ” was also a diabetic according to the centre for Covid-19 situation administration”

    So in truth, the died WITH CV and not OF CV. But truth doesn’t matter to The Thaiger’s reporting.

    Just keep the BS propaganda scam running until or unless the CCSA and the WHO/WEF tell them otherwise.

    What is it that people can’t understand here?
    There are 86 recorded deaths (I think more like 400). However, the numbers are low BECAUSE of the Covid restrictions. Cant you see that if Thailand had kept borders open, allowed people to go to pop concerts and boxing stadiums, the numbers could well be 25,000+.
    I just can’t understand why people see the lockdowns and the small numbers of cases and then claim it was wrong to do lockdowns as the numbers are low. How are you so screwed up in your thinking about cause and effect?

    Right Tony. That’s why they closed the country and made millions of people’s lives miserable because a few sick here, one death there. What a joke!

    And how are these new cases determined – a PCR test?

    Well, reading all the comments here, I can only agree with what they say. One possible Covid death makes headline news. A combined Covid death toll since the beginning of this hyped up hysteria which is lower then the average road death toll on a weekend. But where is the reporting on the suicides from people who’s livelihood has been destroyed by the measures to contain the spread of corona ? How many business have gone belly up ? How many existences have been destroyed ? How long will it take for things to return to “normal” ?

    Agree with you 100% there, David M, even if we disagree on the numbers.

    It’s like having a rabid dog in a cage and saying it’s fine to let it out because it hasn’t hurt anyone, even though the rabid dogs that other countries haven’t caged have savaged hundreds of thousands.

    Beggars belief …

    With one death and 78 reported cases today most here (Glenn, Tony, Bill & Andrew) are asking what’s the big deal and why are you creating so much economic pain an inconvenience?

    David rightly points out there is a cause and effect. The very thing the chorus is complaining about (restrictions and controls) has resulted in the low infection and death count.

    Bangkok City is open because of these efforts. You can go to a bar and have a drink or a restaurant and have a meal or a movie theatre to see a flick. Can’t do that in most of the world.

    Look at the UK, which is similar in population to Thailand, and tell me COVID is nothing. I’d rather have Thailand’s reality right now than the UK or the USA or Brasil’s reality. If you open up Thailand you don’t get everything the same as 2019 and everyone smiling. Get it?

    You’d think it’d be obvious, Ben, but apparently not.

    It’s like Glenn’s dying “WITH” Covid but not “OF” Covid because she was a diabetic – presumably if she’d died after falling 20 storeys she’d have died “WITH” the fall, not “OF” the fall.

    The diabetic who died would still be alive today if she had not contracted COVID, gone to the hospital, was hooked to a ventilator and succumbed. Many diabetics live for years until the disease or something else claims them.

    People like Glenn, who probably doesn’t believe in vaccination, should stay in their own community of like minded people, wander around without masks, cough on each other and bemoan what the world is coming too. I don’t want them near me in any way shape or form. I’m sure the Thai people feel the same as I do.

    Not true I John. If a person died of cancer and at the same time had a broken leg, the person would have dies of cancer with a broken leg.
    What is evident in most cases of claims of death from Covid-19, is that many are already ill, and the Covid-19 finishes them off.
    If it was possible to put all the fat, sick and ill in quarantine, I claim that Covid-19 would kill very few.
    IMHO
