Ventilators may be killing COVID-19 patients. The treatment is all wrong. Oxygen deprivation is the problem, not respiratory failure. Stunning information from NYC doctor treating the worst cases...

Re: Immigration Visa Announcement

Why will mobs be lining up? As far as I can see it’s an automatic extension which will continue to be issued for as long as necessary until borders are open & flights operating. There’s no mandatory requirement for people to stay until the expiry date of the extension. The automatic extension is ju...

Re: Masks

I have a big clear plastic bag. Air can come in where it ends around the chest area. It's going over my head while at immigration this month. With a large elastic band around the opening it will be perfect and you will be guaranteed to never catch, or pass on, the virus :lol: So nice of you to thin...

Re: Immigration Visa Announcement

I guess simply adding an extra 30 days to the expiry date in each person's passport would make too much sense. Instead, everyone EXPIRES ON THE SAME DAY (even if immigration plans to extend further to May 30th or June 30th). So, instead of social distancing, you'll have mobs lining up on the 28th, 2...

Encouraging article about COVID-19 testing in Thailand:

- Only 70,000 tests conducted so far but they are looking to ramp up.

We had the exact same problem just 3 days ago! What a time for this type of thing to happen! I thought we would have to break up a perimeter walkway. What a mess!

They all love Donald Trump because he is re-making America into what it once was, a powerful and respected country. Its amazing how many people can criticize his leadership during one of...

Re: US Presidential election odds

More than 1,000 Americans died of the virus just today alone and Trump on national TV said, "Did you know I was No. 1 on Facebook? I just found out”

Americans deserve whatever is coming to them if this POS gets reelected.
