Makes perfect sense, if in fact they are opening up (somewhat).
I think this is one area that the Thai government (though done in a self-help manner) has been generous with foreigh travelers, but abridging current visa limitations to allow people to extend and extend again.
I was one of those that beneffited from the initial extensions, at the beginning of the pandemic and during that time got my NonImmB O (Spouse) extension...haven't left the country since.
Absolutely, but in part changing to ATK's and not including them in the count makes comparison to previous numbers invalid. That's why I added 40% positives of the 2500 ATK's (same percentage as previously tested positive on average from PCR's). And then consider they don't publish actual total test numbers...
In short it's a numbers shambles and if they do a little more creative accounting they can make covid disappear this week
And I left Canada for the opposite reason, because there isn't enough of this there. Most people are mindless sheep there and are happy to live in tyranny. My grandfather, who fought in WW2, is probably rolling in his grave, seeing Canada become a Marxist ****hole.
