Re: Miscellaneous COVID-19/Corona Virus Discussion, Questions, etc.

So why is there no mention of a COVID 19 treatment in the Thai news? It has been reported in both France and the US chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine can treat the virus. Both of these drugs are currently used for malaria, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

Re: Direct Deposit for US Federal Payments

Is this service for US Citizens only
I forgot. There are probably thousands of Thais that are receiving SS benefits. If any of them are getting a check SSA wants this to stop.

Re: Direct Deposit for US Federal Payments

I think BKK Bank and maybe Kasikorn are the only banks in Thailand that have a US bank routing number. The routing number is needed for making a direct deposit.

Re: English -Issan dictionary

I don’t think it would exist because the Thai government wants to encourage one language - Thai. The closest you may come is a Lao language dictionary.

For Thai go to Thai-language.com for their app for the ipad

Re: Shadow of uncertainty falls over Thai polls

This wouldn’t be Thailand if there wasn’t a scandal with the election. There is a petition to impeach the EC. Everything will have to be put on hold until after the coronation if the parties can’t agree.

The Future Forward party may hold the key to Pheu Thais ability to form a government.

Boeing stuck larger more fuel efficient engines on a plane that was not originally designed to take this size engine. Airbus also d...
