cjtkexhrowliolec I don't remember why I have the impression that you might know something about this, but in case you know any clubs that are shutting down I'm looking to buy โš™ sound, light, laser, staging, whatever's up for grabs. Hear anything like that plz connect me

Ok no problem

Itโ€™s an edge case, Iโ€™m not really sure. Iโ€™m sure however that itโ€™s forbidden to use private pool, even if you have a small pool in your room.

Is immigration still granting entry to foreign passport holders (if they submit to the health certificate + insurance reqs)

doubffrow Really? we thought moving to a better place right on the beach with a swimming pool just in case things will escalate quickly and full quarantine will take place. But now it makes me think it might be useless.

nseltcdvmfnvygth cost me 10,500 baht and took 5 days to get the results when I did mine at bumrungrad

They reckon three days but who knows

mcdeyxmipvmdykpq a local told me she got results in 1 day from chulalongkorn hospital

apparently test at chulalongkorn is 6000 baht
erfmdqqg1d
she was in risky case so it was free for her.. AND probably rushed so 1 day results
maqzgfzw1d
i guess if they don't think you're a risk case they won't rush it
fxyxysfj1d
makes sense
neiidwatcrwdajg1d
I mean for 10,500 baht Iโ€™d be upset if the countryโ€™s head scientist wasnโ€™t looking into it personally

They also tried to palm $75 of drugs off on me which I said no to

I appreciated that bumrungrad was really efficient and had good care when they treated me. I assume they test in house?

Did you happen to get whose technology they use? Presumably not the roche model if theyโ€™re saying 3 days

So if I started bad coughing yesterday, but had had a little cough and fatigue two days before then Tues / Weds are the days itโ€™s going to get worse if itโ€™s going to get worse

Apparently if he doesnโ€™t wash his hands then thereโ€™s more soap for the nhs apparently
jlcsixpdw13h
Which makes little sense because uncle William sent a gallon container of highly concentrated soap... so the soap is in the house, and heโ€™s not donating it, but isnโ€™t using it either.

โ€œ_For foreign tourists in the second group who reported to immigration authorities for a 30-day extension after their visas expired on March 26 or thereafter, their visas will be automatically renewed every 30 days until the pandemic subsides, said Pol Lt Gen Sompongโ€_
seixnq10h
Saw that earlier - will likely be too late for those of us on Koh Tao - tomorrow (7th) immigration is doing a mass extension/renewal - so unless they see this and decided to postpone or delay doing that, most of us will end up paying to get an extension tomorrow..
zybmhyip10h
I see now itโ€™s a copy from bangkok post, maybe they change their mind, things are happening on a daily basis so who knows.

If you missed for a day or two really makes no sense, hopefully they will go ease on it.
lqgdtaocw10h
Who cares about money right now?
tayvkgztejzygg9h
fingers crossed thatโ€™s the case
sdqfkuolu9h
DNs make enough that I have a hard time with them whining over a tiny fee relative to people dying
fvhcra8h
Ya fingers crossed two, but I imagine if you have an overstay you would have to still pay the fine.

Iโ€™ll be a bit more upset if I have to pay 1900 tomorrow to renew my Apr 26 expiry (which it sounds like they will reset to Apr 7th).. Not about the 1900b, more just about the principle of it ๐Ÿ™‚
xhwngifvzjrdrb8h
Yeah letโ€™s see
iyszaixqrocjld8h
Itโ€™s not about the money. Itโ€™s about not having to go to the immigration with hundreds of other people.

pvmgo5h
bwznuvjebppuzsc That's how it sounds to me as well, given this part of the quote "[...] second group who reported [...] for a 30 day extension _after_ their visas expired on, or after, March 26". Hopefully there is clearer language if the measure is approved.
ctbgkfsx3h
rumors of a 24 hour curfew keep popping up
gzgkegoxmc3h
yep
dwagwtyffm3h
itโ€™s a threat atm
mqwszyzjne3h
if people donโ€™t adhere to the rules
xnumgjmr3h
yeah makes more sense they'd just extend curfew a few extra hours, start it earlier or something
yeupikbyohlbj3h
I don't understand why they're using it as a threat, policies should be designed by health experts with expected outcomes not random exercise of police powers
ocxgfaozxbzjx3h
Do they want this to work or don't they
qpwnhldctibkv3h
And if they're having this much trouble enforcing 6 hours, good luck w/24
tjlknmahj3h
totally. you should sell it on stock photo websites!
seety2h
The effect of the policy and the ability to enforce are two separate things. I wouldn't knock them for an extended curfew if it actually does curtail the number of infections.
jaama2h
How a direct correlation can be proven is beyond me, though ๐Ÿ™ƒ
ebgpvk2h
A curfew during the day would encourage many to go to a 'hub' like a supermarket in a more concentrated time slot, which would increase the infection chance/rate. Adding onto the curfew would be very bad, unless it's a 24/7 and going to 'hubs' like supermarkets isn't allowed anymore either.
cflvqf2h
The curfew is probably because it relieves police officers from doing night shifts, when they're much more needed during the day when more people are about and around?
azeyai2h
Just a theory though
