My oldest step-daughter works in the accounts department at a private hospital for wealthy patients in Bangkok. She is involved in tracking the hospital assets. She tells me the hospital is now being renovated so that it can deal with lots of Covid 19 patients.

One of the offers on the table has been that a ship used for Criuse Liner for vacations could be used as a hospital (which would be welcomed during a war which this is turning into )
Great idea and I hope is picked up on
This is due to a number of reasons, self contained, kitchens, rooms, minimal security required to make sure no one leaves in teh middle of the night and or day, laundry facilities etc

I am surprised there has been no local broadcasts warning of the dangers.
They like mouthing off, and loud "music" echoing around the villages.
Many Bahn Knockers maybe dont know how protect their selves?
Old people must stay inside now.

Sounds good but freerepublic.com is a totally unreliable source. Begs the question that if the trials in Australia were secret.....

In fact they were only done in test tubes withe human trials about to begin soon

university of Queensland is the source https://www.uq.edu.au/news/article/2020 ... -treatment

Baltimore's mayor urges residents to stop shooting each other because hospitals need beds for coronavirus patients.

They were broadcasting this morning on the loud hailers on the poles, funny because I was out in the yard before 6, and thought the volume was extra loud. I asked why all the volume and what was said. My girl told me the village boss was warning everyone to make sure anyone returning from bkk had to stay at home.
So at least they are making an effort. Will be difficult though to control them due to the Thai pigheadedness.

They need better weapons and shooting lessons to make sure that the shootings are fatal thus no need for medical care.

Therre have been some interesting graphic features in the New York Times of late. One yesterday showed how the virus spread across all 50 states in the US.
Today's shows how the virus spread out of Wuhan. A few interesting notes:
15,000 people from Wuhan went to Bangkok in Jan. The first known oversea case involved a woman from Wuhan who traveled to Bangkok.

Emirates has now suspended all flights from Wednesday....
In these desperate times it may be of comfort to know that you can still have a good night out at the Pullman Raja Orchid Khon Kaen.
Beer "buy 1 get 1 free " 4pm to 8pm.
Bakery 30% off from 7pm.
Even an elderly British Government pensioner could afford these prices and relax in comfort :D
Just when I thought our chance had passed,you go and save the best for last.

Its started !
Big C wait in line for temp check , sign in and only food section open .
Thai Watsit ado closed till !3th
Global Open but cant go in store and rummage .Staff outside asking what you want and picking it from shelves for you .
Most of this because some Billy Big Bollocks BIB who was told to self isolate , decided to skip BKK and come to Udon to spread his infection .
Apparently the Governor is calling the shots here at the moment .
Good news !!! Road were fairly clear , and no repeat no, money stops .
Every cloud and all that .

makes a change at global from having a member of staff following you virtually in your pocket at all times whilst you try to make up your mind what you want. Suppose if they had to choose one of customer or company stalker to remove in this time of troubles it was bound to be the customer
