Relaxing of restrictions
Sorry fellas nothing about Liquor yet
Nothing there about DIY places like Homepro n Global etc .. have they been cleared to open 1st May already ??
Probably NO, SWMBO said it is Postponed and is going to be the 4th. Makes a lot of sense as it’s the start of a week.

The message on Global House barriers said reopening on the 1st but that may have changed, I will look later today.
The forest was shrinking daily but the trees kept voting for the axe as its handle was made of wood and they thought it was one of them.

Today there were 7 new cases with no deaths & 22 recovered.

The good news is there were no new cases caused by direct contact.
All were in quarantine already.

We went to GH on the Khon Kaen road to ask when they were opening and they don't know, they said it's best to order on line for now.

Re: Corona Virus / COVID-19 Important Information

Post by sometimewoodworker » May 1, 2020, 6:37 am

A very interesting study from Germany. It suggest that the conclusion that COVID-19 is definitely more deadly than the flue but it maybe not 10 times worse but only 4 times worse.

This does not suggest that all the isolation measures are wrong at all. Just imagine all the people in a large city became infected with the flu inside a week with no vaccine available, the hospitals would be overwhelmed and the death rate would jump.

Now multiple that by about 4 and you have the situation where the death rate in patients who could survive with good hospital care jumps higher and higher because the there are no beds, ventilators or staff to treat them all.

So in one way it is similar similar to the flue BUT;
1) nobody has immunity
2) virtually everybody who is exposed to enough viruses will catch it.
3) it seems more contagious (fewer viruses are needed for infection to occur)
4) the death rate is known to be greater,
5) the results of an infection not severe enough to kill but serious enough to be hospitalised are not clear. It is reasonably sure that there is some degree of lasting consequences but how much and for how long we have no idea now.
6) Theory, medical staff are more likely to die as the more viruses you get probably makes the infection worse.

7) absolutely incontestable, not catching the disease now gives a better chance of NOT dying. The later you can become infected the safer you are. There are treatments being discovered (not chloroquine, chloroquine sulphate, light, heat or disinfects) given time more effective treatment will be discovered and eventually a vaccine (minimum time to general use 12 to 18 months from now)

Succinctly said, currently there are too many ifs and what's, but with the medical and Scientific world single mindfulness, I am sure the end of the beginning has occurred and now we look forward to the beginning of the end .

Some may think this is more appropriate to the Covid Humour thread - but I rather see it as pointed social comment, so have placed it here.

Even the Australians are making the Thai Government decisions look slightly more than stupid. And this is all without a booze ban as well.

More encouraging low numbers n no further deaths updated today from the MOPH

https://covid19.ddc.moph.go.th/en

Lets hope the crazy amount of travelers over the weekend and next few holiday days doesnt send the numbers up again.

Very sad indeed and many more deaths happening that do not make the news. This govt had maybe been to slow to provide for the poor.
It has now been reported the Taksin has sent money to the family for the funeral and perhaps some other expenses.

This government only provides for one group of people , and none of them are poor !!
If they had one ounce of the compassion Thaksin had for the poor , they would not have had to make this virus the excuse for such a harsh lockdown .
