The curfew worked last year in the face of total unknowns so this new one, despite not being called a curfew, will work even better based on the fact that a whole lot of last year's unknowns are now known. The added, known and proven danger this year is the higher infection rates of the newer variants, hence the ratcheting up of restrictions.Bandung_Dero wrote: ↑May 2, 2021, 9:45 amTo what end? These governors are like sheep, one does it others start to follow. Far too little to late and what do they hope to achieve by this useless curfew, most everything is shut anyway. The idiots should have set restrictions BEFORE Songkran not after the horse has bolted. - Rant over!pal52 wrote: ↑May 2, 2021, 9:03 amUdon has now been added to the night time restrictions list.
Basically a curfew from 2300 hrs until 0400 hrs.
Only essential travel is allowed during these hours.

My observations during my much reduced perambulations in and around Udon Thani is that the greater population is already heeding the 'no unnecessary travel' edicts outside of inter-provincial and overnight travel. Streets are almost empty, parking places available all over, only maybe 250 other people in makro yesterday afternoon (they have a people counter at the door that runs off the IR temperature test screening). I can cross town in about 8 minutes versus 30 which is a Godsend since they've buggered up the ring-road!
Stop crying over spilt milk. The Songkran fustercluck is history that can't be undone by ranting... but I admit the latter makes one feel better.
