    This is not a good omen for tourism. If it keeps up, it will be other countries refusing Thais to come! Strategic, targeted lockdowns work.

    15500 injections each day. About 70 million people in Thailand – each requiring 2 injections 2 weeks apart. That makes a total of 140 million jabs. When I do the math, that means at that rate of daily injections (15,500) it will take 25,454 days for everyone to get 2 jabs – or 69 years. If it was to take only one year for everyone to get the vaccine (both doses), that would mean they need to inject 383,561 people every day. This thing aint over by a long long way folks – the maths alone show the vaccinations are going to take years.

    Weird how only nightspots, gambling dens and pretty massage parlours lead to clusters.

    One would have thought crowded buses, trains, shared accomodation, factories, offices, meatworks and warehouses would have been far more dangerous.

    Surely the risk of catching covid from your wife or workmate is going to be much more likely than a one-off trip to a bar.

    Seems the virus becomes more virulent when non-govt approved activities are involved. Particularly during holiday periods.

    140.000.000 jabs
    15.500 a day
    9032 days -> 24.74 years

    Bob’s calculation is wrong by ~44 years, not sure why my comment is getting removed though ? Will have to increase the pace a lot more if they really want to open Phuket by this Summer

    Beware of anyone who visited Makro Thepkrasatree Rd Thalang district on Sunday afternoon as they’re may have been a infected person there seen in the fruit and veg section.

    Why can’t a military dictatorship enforce a 30 day lockdown to solve the current issue ?

    @Bob, your maths are right but you can’t inject what you don’t have.

    Thailand’s slow because it hasn’t got the the vaccines to inject, so when the supply changes it could be faster – or maybe even slower.

    Cambodia’s quicker but it’s reliant on free vaccines from China and Covax, which may not continue, and it’s made vaccinations mandatory for all government employees (military, police, teachers, hospitals, civil servants, government staff, etc) so that may change too.

    Maybe more people wear a mask on a train, bus, in a factory, etc, than in a nightclub or when having a “massage”, Rip255 & Dreqo. Maybe.
