I can't quite believe the UK is only now introducing quarantine or checks for people arriving by air!

I flew back into Thailand from Kuala Lumpur in February and was greeted with a temperate check, gel and a face mask. The main airports here including Suvarnabhumi closed completely shortly after, only repatriation flights and cargo. Thailand today has reported 3004 confirmed cases and 56 deaths.

The virus has obviously been spread around by air travel but why the UK has allowed thousands in everyday is beyond me.

I have a beach hotel here and although the peace and quiet is welcome for a while a second huge outbreak will finish tourism, the airline industry and all the myriad of connected businesses.






As soon as China finally admitted the existance of the virus all flights boats etc. from China should have been halted. If this would done we would not bein the position we are in today.

Oh and I would like to be one of your first guests when this is over.

Without knowing the answer, I would question one thing which has the potential to affect those figures and extrapolations.
My dad died on monday. He had been tested for Covid six days previously and the result was inconclusive, but the senior nurse at dads dementia home has said the clinical picture absolutely points towards Covid as being the cause. However because of the test status, dads death certificate only has dementia and old age listed on it
I dont see then how dads death and the doubtless many others like his can ever be included amongst the UK Covid toll, or if every country uses this same protocol?
As is now being touted, the only way we will be able to compare a countries reaction and response and performance against this thing will be to compare its excess deaths above it's own average over the period, if those figures ever become avaliable.



My deepest sympathies for your loss.

singcobb you're very welcome anytime, just message me and I'll pass on the details. You qualify for a whopping Cobblers discount as I'm the only one on the island!

Yes despite being in the tourist trade, an immediate global travel shutdown should've been the policy. Shutting down any method of the virus moving seems basic common sense but then you have to persuade the might of the airlines. Money spent on repatriation could've been spent on lockdown accommodation. Many countries, including Thailand have waived and extended visas.

I'd just want to add my deepest condolences to anybody here affected and hope we all stand together again soon.

I know Penang very well! Usually stay around Chulia St, Love Lane area where most of the tourists gather, great food although always good to get home to Koh Phangan.

Firefly used to fly direct from Penang to Koh Samui which was brilliant however only direct flights now from SIN or KLIA to Koh Samui with Bangkok Air and then a 30 minute ferry ride. I'll be waiting at the pier to pick you up!

Were on Booking.com but I don't want to link it here so if you're ever interested let me know and I'll send you all the links and videos etc.

I lived in Fettes Park and Batu Ferringhi for years. Used to go to Lanti Tali for breakfast regularly to mix the tourists. But the best was sitting fishing early morning on the beach eating roti and drinking coffee through a straw from a plasric bag.

Be grateful that you live in a country that:

1) Only tests people in Acute Care.... so no-one actually knows (especially the scientists making the "decisions") who may or may not have the disease.
2) Has fewer acute care beds per 1,000 of the population than basket cases like Greece & Italy (etc, etc)
3) Has just 5,000 ventilators for the whole country.
4) Has left its borders open to incoming flights (with no checks of any kind) from parts of the World with dire infection rates.
5) Despite "Brexit", has developed no internal production for essential medical items (eg, surgical masks)
6) Has a PM who failed to declare that his latest flousey was up the spout when he called GE, and, thus, that he would be on "Paternal Leave" just when Brexit would be due to explode - oh, and also, now that Covid-19 is an issue.
7) Has an NHS that has been ripped apart by 10 years of a callous administration who want to kill the poor and mentally ill.
Cool Has Capitalism to solve all problems of State.
9) Had a PM (Thatcher) who declared that "society is dead".
10) That has a massive death rate from Sepsis.....  And Sepsis is an inevitable result of Covid-19 morbid state.  (Guess which column the numbers will be added to?)
11) Had a huge number of "Covid-19 at risk" people vote for Brexit....  Brexit means we now have no priority for EU developed vaccine, and are outside of EU-co-ordinated medical research.
12) Has a stiff-upper-lip, and still regards a "full-English Breakfast" as the cure-all for all foreign diseases.
13) Has a Lottery Ticket that says: "Unlucky for 20% of the UK population. We want you to get ill and die." The ages of the contributors to this message board mean we will lose a few.  Stay safe!






Goodness.  I must have been on drugs when I wrote this.  I have since learnt that the UK is the envy of the World.  Please can someone give me a jolt on the head to wake me up?  (Applications by post, email, telephone accepted.  All calls incur a 35p surcharge.  Anyone responding is certified as insane).
