Good early news ...... now let's wait for the follow-up and confirmation.

They had to restrict it. Too many of Donny John's red-capped ra-ra gang were OD'ing on the stuff. He needs all the voters he can get.

It will be interesting to see where this one goes, but it comes from a credible source again, OXFORD University. Got to give it to those guys and girls at Oxford, them seem to know what they are doing. CONGRAD =D> =D>

Extract: Trial results announced on Tuesday showed dexamethasone, which is used to reduce inflammation in other diseases such as arthritis, reduced death rates by around a third among the most severely ill of COVID-19 patients admitted to hospital.

The preliminary results suggest the drug should immediately become standard care in patients with severe cases of the pandemic disease, said the researchers who led the trials. [-o< [-o<

Britain’s health ministry wasted no time in acting on the findings, saying the drug had been approved for use in the state-run health service, export restrictions had been introduced and Britain had stockpiled 200,000 courses of the treatment.

This is a (trial) result that shows that if patients who have COVID-19 and are on ventilators or are on oxygen are given dexamethasone, it will save lives, and it will do so at a remarkably low cost,” said Martin Landray, an Oxford University professor co-leading the trial, known as the RECOVERY trial.

Food for thought
How effective is the flu vaccine?
CDC conducts studies each year to determine how well the influenza (flu) vaccine protects against flu illness. While vaccine effectiveness (VE) can vary, recent studies show that flu vaccination reduces the risk of flu illness by between 40% and 60% among the overall population during seasons when most circulating flu viruses are well-matched to the flu vaccine.

Come the time if the corona has a vaccine will it be any better ?

^ I think we will see something very similar to this announced by the CCSA for their 4th of July surprise. They have already nixed the government's tourist bubble plans based on the steady stream of +ve test results from Thai's returning to the magic kingdom.

The spokesman mentioned returning foreigners with Work Permits or a Thai spouse should contact their local Thai embassy to apply to be considered on a case-by-case basis for admission. He stated the following list of requirements.

Copy of passport.
Proof of marriage.
Covid-19 negative test certificate.
Fit-to-fly certificate.
Health Insurance.
Flight information.
State Quarantine Facility Booking.
Declaration of agreement to be quarantined.

One would assume that the Thai embassies and consulates will have more precise information and procedures.

Thailand Civil Aviation Authority (CAAT) has said it will be September before international flights to and from the country resume.

My gut told me this back in May, that Thailand would possibly allow,
New Zealand & Australian Passport holders to enter as tourists on 01 September 2020
Some European Passport holders to enter as tourists on 01 September 2020

And this back when both New Zealand & Australia, seemed to have the Covid-19 under control, with very low and or no new case numbers.

But even now, I don't believe that September will happen, with many Tourists being accepted for re-entry into Thailand - it will get postponed, for several reasons,

1.Not all other Countries will allow their people to travel outside of their home Country by September. Those that do allow them to, will undoubtedly impose restrictions on their Nationals, when you return home, such as a forced to do 14 days Quarantine (additional holiday) in their home Country. Any such restriction when one returns home country, by way of a further Quarantine, is a huge disincentive to travel in the first place. Why would anyone take 28 Days accrued annual leave, just to holiday for 2 weeks elsewhere? :-k :lol: Makes that one holiday a very expensive one?

2. By September 2020, their will not be too many Counties in the good book with Thailand, with reciprocal travel agreement or bubbles as some like to refer to. By that I mean most Countries will still be battling the pandemic and most like still have new daily case numbers daily, above what the Thai Immigration will consider as an acceptable limit, in which case it will scare the T I Sh..tless. :-k

3..Combine the above, with the reoccurring spikes in new case numbers, recently seen in some Counties such as NZ, Australia & Japan, who arguably have Covid-19 under control, and this will only signal to the Thai’s that, Tourists from those Countries without very good control of the Virus, simply can’t be trusted and or carry too high a risk to let them back into Thailand. Few Countries will fall into the acceptable low risk category (from a Thai perspective), with low new case numbers and very very few will have been free for the past 28 days, by September 2020. To me it is more like November 2020, before Countries the can achieve this low risk status. =; =;

All Countries need to get their “Duck in Row”, before Countries can reach their reciprocal travel protocols in place, to such an extent that traveling from one country to the next is not a pain in the ar...e. \:D/ \:D/

ducks-in-a-row.jpg

Just a view from a far

Personally, I doesn't worry me at this stage, as I have 18 months more in this place ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) and hopefully after that :-({|= :guitar: Thailand for good, assuming they still accept Farang's for Retirement. :fryingpan:
