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

            Infections?
            Hospitalizations?
            Deaths?
            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

Thailand to introduce “area quarantine” for international visitors from April

From next month, foreign visitors to the Kingdom will be able to experience the delights of “area quarantine”, after the government confirmed the scheme for 5 provinces. Following a meeting with the Public Health Ministry, the Tourism Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn confirmed that Phuket, Krabi, Chiang Mai, Chon Buri (Pattaya), and Surat Thani (Koh Samui and Koh Pha-ngan) have been chosen to pilot the scheme.

Foreign tourists opting for area quarantine will be required to remain in their hotel rooms for the first 3 days of their stay. They will be tested for Covid-19 and, if negative after 3 days, will be allowed to leave their room and roam freely around the resort for the remainder of their 14-day quarantine. At the end of the 14-day period, they will once again be tested for the virus and, if negative, allowed to travel around the quarantine area.

In order to avail of the scheme, tourists will still need to fulfil the other requirements for travel, including obtaining a Certificate of Entry, a negative Covid-19 test 72 hours prior to travel, and adequate health insurance. Nation Thailand reports that the area quarantine plan will be run by 29 travel agencies, under TAT supervision.

The area quarantine scheme comes as the TAT hails the success of the first “golf quarantine” scheme, which operates in a similar manner. Travellers from countries considered “low-risk” for Covid-19 can come to Thailand for a golf holiday at approved golf resorts in the Kingdom. Conditions are similar to those attached to area quarantine, with the golfers having to spend the first 3 days in their room, test negative for the virus, and then enjoy free rein of the resort, with a few rounds of golf thrown in.

Thailand’s economy has been decimated by the fallout from the pandemic, in particular the loss of international tourism. The current mandatory 14-day quarantine period is seen as the biggest hurdle to overcome in order to re-ignite the sector. In 2019, international tourism contributed 2 trillion baht out of a total 3.01 trillion baht tourism trade. In the same year, tourism made up 17% of Thailand’s GDP.

Massive 6-metre-long python caught in Chon Buri | The Thaiger

While tending to his land and preparing to cut down some banana trees, a Chon Buri man came across a massive 6-metre-long, 100-kilogram python. 8 people worked together to pull the giant snake out from the vegetation. The python tried numerous times to escape. It took around 30 minutes to catch the snake.

The landowner told Thai media reporters that the area is frequented by workers and he was surprised a large python was nearby. While there tends to be snakes in the area, he’s never seen a snake this big.

“We were cleaning the area before we were surprised to discover the python. We have always had snakes in this area occasionally but never one quite on this scale, especially in a garden and farming area that is frequented by local residents.”

Animal rescuers were called to the seen and took the giant python to a secluded forest away from locals.

An 18 year old motorbike driver has been killed after ploughing his bike into the back of a parked truck. The Pattaya News reports that the incident took place at the weekend, in the eastern province of Chon Buri.

Emergency workers arrived at the scene in the Baan Suan sub-district to find Sahapat Tippuang with serious head injuries. It’s understood the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet, but it came off in the course of the accident. The motorbike was severely damaged.

The 19 year old truck driver, Akkaradet Sangprach, says he had pulled over to the side of the road to check directions for where he was going.

“I was heading from Samut Prakan to a temple in the Mueang Chonburi district. I got lost before I stopped on the side of the road to look up directions on my GPS unit. While I was researching how to get to the temple in Chon Buri, Mr. Sahapat crashed into the back of my pickup truck.”

Police are reviewing CCTV footage as part of their investigation.
