    America isnt showing any sign of slowing down. Keep them out until they do.

      The PCR test has been deemed invalid by both the Portuguese and Dutch court system. Also, if you test positive and 3 weeks later die in a car accident, you are listed as “dead with covid19”. Furthermore, there has just been released a video, made by an American nurse, that showed that some hospitalised people in her hospital, that were tested negative for corona, still was listed as positive. Fraud. In other words, we can’t trust the numbers, and in the meantime most likely millions all over the world will die from hunger due to the lockdowns.

      Just saying…

          “UN warns number of people starving could double due to pandemic”

          Is Issan John ever not wrong?

            In this case, no, it’s rubbish from start to finish.

            The PCR test was never “deemed invalid by both the Portugese and Dutch court system”.

            That never happened.

            All that was “deemed invalid” was the use of ANY test, including the PCR test, to quarantine people unless it was supervised by a doctor as that’s the requirement under their laws.

            As for ““UN warns number of people starving could double due to pandemic”, on putting that “quote” into Google, the only resuly was yours, here.

        and that’s how it works, on a massive scale. one huge lie and far too many people still believe it like a religion.

      Correct keep them out and remove those in Thailand now, all foreigners should be removed because they spread the virus faster then Asians. (sarcasm)

      “No sign of slowning down”

      US sees an 80% drop in cases.

      Looks like herd immunity is what we needed after all. And less covid panic warriors.

        “Herd immunity” due to vaccination, not natural causes.

        Cases, yes, but deaths in the US are still higher than at any time between the end of April and begining of December last year.

    9 out of 11 untested prior to flying – and 2 positive, despite being tested.

    82 more cases of hang-over were reported to day. too much consumption of lao-kaw and other substances were believe to be the cause. a complete listing of nationalities is available to show the govt is firmly in control. some have been hospitalized and others are under observation (to see if their condition repeats).

    be very fearful of alcohol consumption as it may be dangerous to your health
