you may get a blue exit at BKK, take a blue car, drive to a blue zone, stay in a blue hotel and stay 7 days in blue zone , take two pcr tests before travel outside of the blue, or stay in field hospital for about 14 days on positive test,
walking around there may be screening hubs again and you may pay for next test, you are traced by tracking app all days, and you think about new Thailand holidays without quarantine ?
wait for royal gazette
From what @JamesE has said earlier it looks like because they are holding that rate for 25 hours they are confident that on opening Monday it will not weaken so guess they are thinking the THB against the $ will actually weaken which is good news.
Yes, @Bob20, because as usual you'r basing everything you say on your personal experience, ignoring what's widely reported and widely commented on here, and making wild ssumptions without a shred of any other evidence.
No, my "argument of extra delay" was clearly based on the use of AZ.
Well, your information is wrong, @Bob 20, despite your fascination with visiting vaccination events and you somehow being allowed in when apart from outside they're closed to anyone who isn't being vaccinated or their carer if they're incapicated. It's absolutely, completely wrong, based on nothing apart from what you think you've seen, and I'm trying to avoid being offensive but to warn people about taking dangerous advice.
Yours, for example, could make someone register on expatvac thinking they were guaranteed Pfizer, cancelling AZ or Moderna, only to find that they didn't get Pfizer, they'd lost their chance of Moderna, and delayed their chance for AZ.
WHAT YOU'RE SAYING COULD CAUSE SOME PEOPLE HERE SERIOUS PROBLEMS, @BOB20 - try to think of the consequences of what you say occasionally.
Others posting here have had worse outcomes for vaccines than they need have - that's contributed to by comments like yours giving appallingly bad and dangerous advice.
Those for Pfizer, particularly foreigners, are generally called to "vaccination events" where only Pfizer is administered to minimise confusion, so it's no surprise that you saw everyone at those events getting Pfizer because that was all that was being given out - at those events.
That's just nonsense, @Bob20. The only people technically "eligible" for Pfizer here are the over 60's and those with health condtions, whether Thai or foreign.
JHC. Those obviously weren't "expatvac locations" but for anyone registered, and again that's what you've seen - or think you've seen - nothing else.
This sums it up, @Bob20, and sums up everything that's wrong with these posts and with the dangerous advice you're giving, however well-intentioned it is.
YOU DON'T "KNOW" THAT AT ALL.
All it's possible to "know" from that is that those doses were used ON THAT OCCASION. NOTHING ELSE.
You DON'T know "that they are still using the donated doses from 31 July for expatvac events, so they have truly been reserved". You're not just making an assumption based on minimal evidence, but it's not even suggested and is completely unsupported by any evidence at all.
You're entitled to your own opinion, @Bob20, as we all are, but what you're claiming to "know" and passing on here as advice which others will act on is dangerous. You complain about the anti-vaxxers giving dangerous advice, but yours is no different.
FFS think about the consequences of some of what you post.
It's unfortunate that Worldometers.com. one of the sites I use for number-crunching does not archive the pages from individual days. In case you are unaware, it gets most of its data from Johns Hopkins. There was a spell when they were regularly "updating" the figures they sent to JH, and would often wipe 6-10k cases a day of previously reported infections, I presume they were telling JH, that these were misdiagnosed. I saw 10's of Thousands of cases taken off the figures for China by this method.
The problem of course, is that JH, just like the CDC VAERS site, can only publish what it is told, so if China say, "We misdiagnosed 6463 cases that we earlier reported. We now discover that it was earache and not CV" and JH are obliged to amend the figures.
It's worth noting that just about the time everyone was blaming China for this, by Apr 2020 when the virus was then known by about five months, they had already made 8 definitions of what constituted CV. So if you keep adding symptoms that must be present in order to be called CV, you can redefine the hell out of the stats. As I am sure sure you are well aware, CV had a multitude of symptoms and some cases were asymptomatic. One of the rarer symptoms was a rash on toes. If you write the definition so that this symptom must be present, suddenly many cases are no longer called covid.
