Police raided a bar in Chon Buri and arrested 28 people for allegedly violating disease control measures. The bar was open past 11pm, the closing time for entertainment venues under emergency control measures to combat the spread of the coronavirus. Police raided the bar around 1am after a call from a local resident.

Along with the bar owner, 8 employees and 19 customers were arrested for allegedly violating the Emergency Decree. Police warn that they will do more raids and venue inspections in the future, adding that the closing time order will be strictly enforced, especially during the Chinese New Year on Friday.

        What pandemic in this country? A pandemic with 79 deaths in over a year? Get a dictionary mate and look for the word “pandemic “. You are a complete ignorant. Follow the stupid mass where you belong and just shut up!!

            What do you suppose the following would be had the Thai authorities not locked down and imposed such strict restrictions?

            People left severely affected for many months after recovering?so called Long Covid

            If you need a clue to what happens and what the above numbers could be in Thailand, look no further than the U.K.who have a similar population to Thailand. The numbers there are as follows:

            Infections = 3,900,000
            Hospitalizations = 414,000
            Deaths = 114,000
            Long Covid = 60,000

            And these are with two or three lockdowns taking place. So it is worth considering how many would be in each of the above categories had authorities acted in the way some people are suggesting and allow it to rip through the population.

          Yeah only 79 deaths it seems the pandemic prevention policy works. Much better then in the US and the EU anyway.

          It takes some thought to come to the right conclusion, need some brain for that though.

            You have to also take into account that the USA and England have a much better medical infrastructure than Thailand. If Thailand had not done these lockdowns the numbers would have been much worse. I personally commend the actions taken by the Thai government.

          79 deaths, don’t make me laugh.

          Do you really think the government there is telling the truth?

          How can you know how many people are dying of the virus, who have it, have had it etc when they you are only doing a few tests.

          I can imagine people dying in the villages there have died of ‘old age’ etc as no tests are carried out.

          We in the UK have tested tens of millions of people so we know the real numbers.

          If Thailand did have the correct virus figures they would cheat anyway as was the case in the last election there, many votes were cancelled and opposition parties were banned.

      So no answers then Bill. Just a childish comment? That’s the problem you see. This pandemic is serious business and needs serious minds to make the decisions. Try again young man. Perhaps you think all these global numbers are made up conspiracies? If you do, don’t forget that wearing a metal bowl on your head won’t stop you falling off the side of the flat Earth.

    Last night in Bangkok there was a pool tournament played until 1 am with alcohol servings and all. Public knowledge but nobody reacts, because they did their due diligence and paid the cops to stay away.

    Thailand over the next 1-2 years will see huge changes
    Sadly not for the good
    I feel very sorry for the normal low-income Thai…..These changes will come
    Like their neighbor country, all poo will hit the fan and explode in the faces of the rich
    Viva Revolution, it will come
    The USA must help or China will take over Thailand and then be a communist country
    These are the predictions of a man who,s predictions are never wrong
    Good Luck Thailand
