    The Chonburi rate seems to be fluctuating daily but rising again from the recent figures.

    That they haven't quarantined the entire chanwat is really a fucking disgrace. No more domestic tourism should be encouraged from Bangkok and the hotels, malls and restaurants should be closed down with a curfew for the chanwat set at 2200hrs.

    I don't want to go out, I just want to know that I can if I wanted too.

    Larger-scale testing has also contributed to the downward shift in death rates. As the U.S. tests more broadly, there’s a greater pool of data to pull from, instead of only recording the worst cases. The current mortality rate, based on reported cases, is 2.5%, according to Johns Hopkins. The CDC estimates this percentage would be far lower if it included people who are infected but unaware. Asymptomatic cases of COVID-19 are very common, and if those cases were included, the CDC predicts the mortality rate would be closer to 0.65%.

    So it being Sunday I should just about be able to get into Chiang Mai before lockdown.




    Calls are mounting for the government to impose a lockdown to restrict people's movement as the number of Covid-19 infections continued to soar.
    The calls were made after Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said on a TV Pool broadcast on Friday that the government had no plan to lock down the country despite it logging more than 2,000 new infections on Saturday.
    Eight Covid-19 deaths and a record 2,839 new cases were reported, bringing the total to 129 deaths and 53,022 infections, according to the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration. Bangkok logged the highest number of new infections at 1,582 cases.
    The Thoracic Society of Thailand called on the government to take drastic action to restrict the movements of people. Nithiphat Chiarakun, president of the society, said the soaring number of infections is straining the public health system as many hospitals, "hospitels" and field hospitals are teetering on the edge.

    "Any efforts to overstretch the capacity of medical personnel will lead to the collapse of he public health system,'' he warned. "The government must take decisive action to stop the movement of people as much as possible to isolate infected and at-risk for treatment and reduce the number of new infections,'' Dr Nithiphat said.
    The government must give weight to information from the medical profession rather than politicians, he said. Those in the healthcare sector must also make the most use of what capacity they have and try to reduce the number of patients stranded in hospitals and communities, he said.
    Calls are also mounting for the government to impose a nationwide lockdown. Benjaporn Tantasuti, a child and adolescent psychiatrist, said that without law enforcement, many Thais cannot control their behaviour during the pandemic. "The situation is worsening and it is now necessary to impose a lockdown and curfew to stifle the surge of infections. The lockdown may be imposed for a brief period to curb the spread of the virus and help ease the burden on the overwhelmed healthcare system,'' she said.


    Chaichana Dejdecho, a Democrat Party MP and deputy spokesman, also urged the prime minister to impose a nationwide lockdown for 15 days including restrictions on inter-provincial travel, and a curfew. The government has yet to take action because it is concerned about the economic impact, but the surging infections is now putting a strain on hospitals, Mr Chaichana said.
    Deputy Public Health Minister Sathit Pitutecha admitted the latest wave of infections has reached a critical point as there are not enough medical personnel to take care of. In light of this, the ministry has asked the prime minister to tighten measures to curb the transmissions, he said.
    Thiravat Hemachudha, director of the Health Science Centre of Emerging Diseases at Chulalongkorn University's faculty of medicine, posted on Facebook that the war against Covid-19 is expected to be a long, drawn-out one.
    Commenting on growing calls for a lockdown, he said many infected people are asymptomatic. If a lockdown is imposed, an asymptomatic person who fails to isolate himself from others in a house will spread the disease. When the lockdown is lifted and if those infected people in the house are also asymptomatic, they will spread the virus to many others, Dr Thiravat said.
    Gen Prayut said on his Facebook on Saturday he has allowed provincial governors to consider imposing curfews in some areas. Provincial governors have the authority to tighten disease control measures and close premises in addition to any closures ordered by the government. If the pandemic worsens, the 14-day quarantine period for asymptomatic patients treated at hospitals may be reduced to 10 days so they can be self-quarantined at home with a tracking system.
    The Thai Retailers Association (TRA) said hours of shopping malls, supermarkets and convenience stores will be shortened further in 18 red-zone provinces including Bangkok.
    Starting from Sunday, malls and community malls in the 18 provinces will be open from 11am to 8pm; supermarkets and food courts must close at 9pm, and convenience stores must close from 10pm to 5am. The change will last until May 2.
    The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) on Saturday announced 31 types of business venues at risk of Covid-19 infections will come under lockdown for 14 days from tomorrow, according to the Morlab Panda Facebook page. They include cinemas, water parks, boxing stadiums and museums.

    In the absence of a national vaccination programme immunising 80% of the population, the only available tool to fight the threat of an escalating 'R' number is to reduce social contact.

    To ignore the need for an immediate lockdown closing all social centres except for supermarkets in the current circumstances is criminally stupid.

    But then, this is Thailand and of course, as we all know, what is different this time round is that the elite and their families have all been vaccinated and are clearly content to gamble with our lives.

    Ghastly people, quite ghastly.

    Poor 'Arry, so sexually frustrated he has to arrange a holiday in an emerging disaster zone simply to get access to a few whores.

    But commenting on the Chula academic's bizarrely incoherent babblings, is it right this buffoon is saying that lockdowns increase the 'R' rate whereas free association prevents infection in the home!!

    No wonder the place is fucked.

    But I'm sure you'll fit in a bit of leg-sliding along the way.

    But since you appear to be in the market for a slice of Thai real estate, can I interest you in my new bond scheme offering a 28% return on an investment collaterized by shareholders in my Pattani timeshare condo development. We're taking bids for investments beginning at 2 million per bond with a maximum holding of 20 million baht. In addition to your guaranteed annual dividend we're also offering a month's free vacation at our sister development down in Sihanoukville.

    If you fancy getting your feet wet just give me a ping with your mail address and I'll arrange for my legal representatives, Steele, Cheetham & Howe, to contact you.

    It seems Chiang Mai might be getting the new 'dark red' designation which given that the place is a ghost town may not be noticeable.

    The ministry of public health is proposing that ALL foreigners applying for a COE after May 1st will have to do the FULL 14 days quarantine.

    Just a proposal at the moment but it is highly likely. Not sure if that means vaccinated people too, but should know more Thursday.

    Guess not. Every mofo coming has to do 14 days now and all the ASQ hotels are trotting out new price lists.

    Bummer for those who REALLY wanted to flaunt their pass to participate in society.
