But we have seen this all before where they have listened to the experts ……
Stop buying Sinovac, medical expert tells government
Gameweek 5 now less than 12-hrs away and, as much as it goes against my normally modest grain, I have a slightly cocky feeling that WW are going to shine, this time around.
Good luck, all . . . well, sort of!
You're still missing two problems: one for tourists and one for locals.
For tourists, yes, they'll be able to leave Bangkok after 14 days.
Unfortunately a lot of other provinces have imposed a 14 day self-quarantine period for arrivals from "dark red" provinces as so many clusters originated from Bangkok.
While locals can go and hide in the hills and on the farms, tourists are rather more obvious so it's "welcome to Loei province. We hope you enjoyed your 14 day stay in Bangkok seeing the sights, but now you've got 14 days seeing the inside of your hotel bedroom. Nobody warned you? Oh dear ..."
The problem for locals is that although 20% of the population have been vaccinated most of those are in Bangkok, Phuket, and dark red provinces so as soon as any travel restrictions are off those who are vaccinated may be safer but those who aren't are screwed.
... and even a lot of the vaccinated are screwed too, as not only did half get Sinovax but they got it up to six or seven months ago, as far back as February, so it's not just useless crap but completely useless crap.
Sadly, I think governments have such a hard-on for doling out vaccinations that the risks of circumnavigating traditional parental rights is probably a negligible concern. When you're in the midst of a planet-wide lie, anything (and everything) goes.
They need to achieve vaccination goals (95%?). To do so requires children - this is the most effective age group to go after since they're old enough to believe they can think for themselves, want to control their own lives, and feel invincible.
Anyway, this is already being done:
Sydney cleared out a concert hall and diverted 40,000 vials to innoculate 15,000 high school children in August.
Similarly; "The country has authorized the Pfizer vaccine for anyone 16 years old and older. Children aged 12 to 15 are authorized to receive the shot if they meet certain criteria, such as living in a remote community or having a medical condition."
So, if you're 12yo and live in the sticks - you're good to go.
Something's wrong when a person isn't old enough to vote, leave high school, or have a beer - but can decide if they want an unapproved (yes it is STILL unapproved) vaccine.
This virus doesn't cause child mortality in any significant way. Additionally, children have the best immune function and shot at being totally asymptomatic if infected. Whatever the purpose - this vaccine is not about protecting children. Instead, it's a desperate bid of the government, and an opening salvo to jab children. Once the teens are inoculated the push will be to jab younger kids, and start vaccinating infants as part of their normal vaccine schedule. How many horrible things have happened in the last two decades to 'protect the kids.'
'Reason' isn't being served up anymore. Only propaganda, consequences and the next buffet of lies for the populace to feed on.
