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

I suspect the Thai government is very unhappy with the British government: Despite reaching 41 days without a locally transmitted case of Covid-19, Thailand is still designated as a “red light” country and Thais arriving in England will still be required to self-isolate for 14 days. Updated guideli...

Re: U.K. going on lockdown, USA stopping restricting movement. WTF

Now now. The current British Prime Minister makes many American politicians look fairly sharp. The Brits are now kicking up their heels. Hopefully they do it responsibly. One problem with managing this pandemic is that there seem to be heaps of irresponsible selfish people in every country. Without...

Re: 5 Year Renewal of Driver's License

^ I was thinking about those who got caught between expiration of previous extension and getting a new visa (or extension) and were in Thailand on a 30-day visa exempt entry. Maybe I'm the only one. My TDL doesn't expire till next December (I think) so just a hypothetical. What's a two year extensi...

Re: U.K. going on lockdown, USA stopping restricting movement. WTF

When it comes to public health the US is currently a failed nation state. It might even be beyond Biden to fix. Since nobody is going to do much as a country for the next 6 months sadly you are probably correct certainly in the near (Orange breaking as much as possible) to medium term (a real presi...

Re: New flu pandemic threat from China

Not remotely as serious as COVID as a vaccination would be much easier and faster
Current flu vaccines do not appear to protect against it, although they could be adapted to do so if needed.

Europeans can NOT fly to Thailand starting July 1st

The only Europeans who can both fly to, and enter, Thailand are those who have clearance from Thailand via the local Thai embassy. Until the CAAT permits passenger flights to Thailand (the current exclusion finishes on June 31 and can be extended) and the MFA and immigration department publishes ent...

Re: Reporting from Across the Pacific

Regrettably you are in one of the top 3 states for new cases, joint second with California at about 6,000 per day.

I have no idea if that will have any effect on your return application, but it may make the required tests difficult to get.

Give Zoom a try, it seems to be one of the best. I usually use Skype though it can be less good recently.
