    So we blame the foreigners yet again!

    Massage girls in direct contact with foreigners?

    When I drive through Patong I see the massage girls sitting in big groups outside the massage shops so they are also in close contact with other Thais.

    I went to Tesco the other day for medicine and I saw hundreds of Thais shopping and were all passing very close to each other, as we went into Tesco we were stopped and so a queue formed pushing us close together in order to have our temperatures taken.

    If the person taking the temperatures processes thousand of people a day what are the chances of them catching the virus and passing it onto many others Thais?

    But never mind we can blame the foreigner.
