Throw into that mix, the Hungarian decision to open the border with Austria to all Warsaw Pact citizens. Not a lot of point in having a secure wall on one side of your home when you leave a back door open.
I agree these are difficult times and no one alive today has had to deal with a pandemic on this scale. I also agree every country has made poor decision with the benefit of hindsight. However, we are now some 22 months in to this pandemic. Most countries have experienced wave after wave of cases and deaths. We know it is mainly airborne transmission which is the greatest risk, and we know the vaccines available reduce risk of death. So given all of that, you have to be in the 30th tier of intelligence, or the upper 1st tier of selfishness, to suggest opening nightlife such as bars and clubs until you have vaccinated more. I don’t blame anyone for trying to strike a balance in order to get things moving again. But lifting of nightlife is placing a heavy weight in favour of the virus.
Who would be surprised by this latest stuff up by the government when people are still dying from lack of quality vaccines.. and paper work still to blame for total disregard of the thai peoples safety..
