It's certainly being downplayed.  I just finished  my 14 days after a positive.  Cleared non contagious from hospital.   Just walked down the soi where the night life thrives.  A manager just stopped me  asked where I been?  I sai. I tested positive  went into quarantine.   Her reply we just finished too.  We all test positive  5 days, we good now.  So, she just said, her and the ladies tested positive  but never stopped working, or seeing people.  The doctor told me when I cleared, that one in ten patients are severe.  So, yeah with people positive,  complacent,  and not caring it's a real possibility you'll be exposed.

Quite common. Lucky the omnicron is less severe.

Another scam, why should you need this when you have little or no symptoms, do what everyone is doing, ATK test, positive, self isolate and don't tell, simple. 555

How does this compare the AXA insurance, I have to take out, just to get a policy certificate to say I have US 50,000 to apply for the Thailand Pass?!
