    Re: Thailand Covid At Record High!

    Now something to gladden Matt's heart - a trend uptick. It's not quite the all-time high - that was on 31 May and was 150 more than today's total, but today's figure of 3,232 (3,667 including 435 in prison) has dragged the fortnightly average up by 90 to 2,428 and close to its all-time high of 2,445 on June 9.

    This is the second consecutive day where the general population figure starts with a 3. Today it's 3,104 - yesterday it was 3,232. Given Thailand's low rate of testing, the figures at best indicate trend rather than actual numbers. In total there were 3,682 cases of which 578 were from prisons. The fortnightly average has risen from 2,338 to 2,488 over the past 3 days.

    Another 3,000+ day - 3,175 in total but only 140 in prison.

    To some extent (if anyone is relying on the figures supplied rather than the trend they approximate) the “local” figures I quote also include travellers already in quarantine. Today’s “true” local figure is 2,990.

    Another jump in numbers - 4,059 cases, only 75 from prisons. Excluding travellers that's 3,984 locals. Yes, Matt, it's now trending up.

    If today’s figure of over 4000 includes travellers in quarantine the it just proves that quarantine is unnecessary. Just how many in quarantine were contaminated? Bet it’s not more than single figures out of those 4000 you reported today.

    It has never been significant so the latest wave cannot be blamed on quarantined travellers either.

    Thailand had it coming, it was only a matter of when.

    What a great rant.

    No one has ever blamed the latest outbreak on returning travellers but on infected illegal migrant workers somehow passing it on to the “entertainment” workers centred on Soi Thonglor and thus into the general population. An “ex” of mine, now a hairdresser, became infected because one of his customers was a prostitute in that area. Your use of the pejorative “contaminated” betrays your innate Puritanism.

    Is your argument that “Thailand had it coming” based on its porous land borders or its sex industry (bearing in mind you’re a sex tourist yourself)?

    Neither.

    Many expats (permanent sex tourists, like yourself) congratulated Thailand on their handling of the pandemic. Do we hear them now?

    Covid has affected every Nation. It was only a matter of time.

    A “permanent tourist”? Perhaps you should let the TAT know about this exciting concept.
