Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

If you are going to quote me, have the courtesy to quote the entire post, not a portion of a sentence . Better yet my friend block me, ignore me or whatever. I have no intention of responding to your baiting

Already forgetting about Thailand, at least for the upcoming high season. By now it is pretty clear that there is no feedback channel from population to the rulers and the situation cannot be resolved peacefully.

Good for Thailand. Countries that depend so heavily on tourism cannot afford to keep borders closed for very long. It’s a matter of survival for them, unlike this joke of a virus.

April 21 Patient deaths: 37,321 Positive tests: 772,524 USA
August 12 Patient Deaths 164,000 Positive test 5.15 Million USA

Boy you sure called that one right LOL

Actually his call was dead on, at this stage of this process 6 months on since March, only the willfully blind cannot see that US stats are pure BS.

Yes, and only math-challenged people are still scared of it. Deaths from covid are sizing up to be between flu and tuberculosis numbers. Prediction of 0.5 million deaths in UK and 2.2 million deaths in US based on which lockdowns started, were proven false by reality.

He called it very wrong with his extrapolating. After 4 months and 200k deaths he claimed by his maths that after 12 months there would be 600k deaths.

I say believe the experts not some random spouting his opinion.

Everyone has an equal right to an opinion but not all opinions are equal.

The joke of a virus as you refer to it has killed 165,000 American and 741,000 worldwide. Joke? you have an odd sense of humour. Which part do you find funny, that as many has been this many deaths or that there were not as many deaths as predicted? Is it rib tickling that scientist and medical experts did not know enough about an unknown virus and preached caution whilst trying to come to a level of understanding of it or that despite many nation's best efforts Covid 19 has claimed 3/4 of a million lives in 8 months?

“Preached caution” is a huge understatement from locking down the world that has happened. Absolutely inadequate assessment of the situation by “experts” that will be coming to haunt the world for many years.

The jokes have been many, one of them is how some rulers have precipitated their (sometimes untimely) decline from power by their own knee-jerk reaction to something that is shaping up to be much closer to a flu than the “deadly plague” predicted by “experts”.

I think we are getting offtopic here though.

Moved some off topic posts from the Thailand topic to where they belong here.

@hunter8 Maybe I'm missing something but I don't follow the logic above. Don't want to get into statistics debate (aka 'lies more lies and damned statistics') but how do you come up with "Deaths from covid are sizing up to be between flu and tuberculosis numbers"? I mean, apart from China, the Wuhan virus didn't really start to take off until what, March, April in the western world? So, my issues are:

1. are you comparing numbers in the say, March to August period (5 or so mths) of the Wuhan virus with an equivalent period for flu/tuberculosis?

2. the Wuhan virus deaths during that period have been subject to lockdowns/restrictions (with different approaches admittedly from country to country) and doesn't it then follow that had these not occurred, the numbers of deaths would have been much higher? I mean a 'do nothing' 'let her rip' approach (not dissimilar to a flu/tuberculosis scenario because most people don't get a flu shot around the world) would no doubt have resulted in a lot more deaths?

Seems to me this virus is incredibly infectious and we don't really have a handle of how things would have panned out with no change to daily activity eg quite apart from lockdowns/restrictions, people also have implemented social distancing, hygiene with washing hands and wearing masks.
