Maybe Doodoo is concerned why his "Yes it really happened" thread has been getting less visitors these past few weeks?

Having discovered this thread, now he understands why.

I sit here each day waiting to find out what’s happening at the Tap intersection, very sad to hear about the cat, there seems to be an awful lot of moggy bashing on UM lately.
The forest was shrinking daily but the trees kept voting for the axe as its handle was made of wood and they thought it was one of them.

Trying to pass the time away I have just done a study of the Provinces in the North East of Thailand.
Out of 11 provinces there are only 2 with any cases reported in the last 14 days.

Loei with 3 cases reported in the last 14 days.
Khon Kean with 2 cases reported in the last 14 days.

All the rest have had no cases reported in the last 14 days with Udon having no cases at all as the last case was released from Hospital yesterday.

The Government has stated it is up to the Individual governor in each province to ease restrictions.
That is bulls** .

I thought that Governors were elected but that is not true.
They are appointed by the Prime Minister and central government.

The only Governor who is elected is the Governor of Bangkok and he was replaced under special powers by the Prime Minister in 2018 with an army General.

It look like the only time any restrictions will be lifted will be when the Prime Minister says so.

That looks like MAYBE 1st May and now he is talking about easing restrictions when there are no more than 10 new cases a day.

Restrictions could be eased off in the North east so people can get back to work & stop a lot of hardship but I do not think that will happen.

I think there are approx 8 or 9 provinces without a single case as yet .. i know the curfew is nationwide but are these C19 free provinces experiencing the same restrictions as all other provinces with reference to closures etc... ??

Yes.
See below the Link to the TAT website updated on 17th April.
There are 9 provinces with no cases (10 now with Udon) and 27 with no new cases in the last 14 days.

Good point DM.
This is where the gradual rollback should start. In all low number countries for that matter. Keep that province completely isolated but commence opening up some money making opportunity businesses. From the local mum and dad shops to restaurants. The people are hurting and I can see more and more movement of vehicles and bikes in my little Soi. Then open larger service premises and heaven forbid the schools.
Let the people see that there is a light at the end of this tunnel and that conformance to current province isolation rules and testing will lead to a quicker opening to a normal life.
Incentive is a big thing.

A lot of traffic on the roads this morning . Sorry Jon , not after your job , just an observation .
I think people have had enough of this lockdown , if you can call it that , or they do not trust the government to pay them to stay home any longer .
But i noticed a vast diference in traffic compared to last week .

We've had to come into to town and we both commented the same thing, life is returning to normal, the roads are as busy as usual.

During my isolation and subsequent junction journalistics ive noticed just how many vehicles totally ignore the red lights coming from NBLP going straight on not turning right the airport .. from motor bikes zipping thru a red to the big 18 wheelers thundering along with no chance of ever stopping in time so just ignore the red .. there is a new CCTV cams on my intersection and every now n then (c19 not recently) a police officer hiding and radioing thru to his buddies at the check point round the bend near the car auctions ...

Again we are all spandexed lunchboxes with early morning cool time bikers ..mostly in singles , pairs or 3s but i did counted 24 wheels in one group so thats 12 bikers.
As previously posted by other members traffic wise its pretty much back to the norm here both in the town center and ring road...

Oh yeah .. and the flower n donut sellers are back !!!

Gonna be a scorcher again today 40 plus on accu .. and still the borders and bars are closed.

I have just been informed that Udons premier tourist intersection is being re surfaced in the very near future , saw the road tripod thingy guys out in the heat earlier today and the duck noodle shop guy just confirmed its being tarted up , hes not too chuffed as will mess up his entrace for the duration of the job .....

In his words apparently the area has become quite famous due to some expat **** doing daily reports ???? .. suffice to say i replied and confirmed .. who the hell would do some thing that daft !!

So a new surface soon .. and the borders n bars are still closed.

Maybe DM because it is now famous they are going to install those loop detection systems at the lights with in the asphalt.
They are installed on a couple of traffic lights in the city now. Even got a sign painted on the road inside the loop. In English.
Thanks for letting me know that no bars open.

did a walk-about down by the mall and then UD Town around 2PM. The mall is "limited" open with TOPS, Farmer's Market, Royal Project, Boots, Watson's, and a few other stores in the basement open. 3rd floor access to the banks on the main street end.. McDonald's and a few other restaurants open for takeout only. Perhaps a couple of hundred people in the mall total. Soi Samphanit is locked down with all hotels and bars closed, restaurants shuttered with I think maybe four offering take out only. Walking down to UD Town showed it more lively with Tesco Lotus quite crowded and the street beside Tesco setting up food stalls for the "night market" About 99% were wearing masks..

I’m surprised you didn’t spot me with my lemon spandex on, but with my stabilisers it was only 11 of us.
