      We have the same thing in our condo the key in sathorn except the feet all point to the walls. Gym etc closed until the 31st March and they are now taking temperatures outside instead of inside the building. Not sure things will open again in the near future unless there is a sudden stop to the increase in cases

          For those in Thailand who intend to return to the UK soon, I'm hearing more and more airlines are suspending operations. Emirates will suspend all passenger flights from Wednesday. 25 March.

          If you intend to return to the UK, perhaps you should consider leaving as soon as possible before flights are suspended.

              British Airways will also suspend BKK flights from 28 March meaning its last flight back to the UK will be on 29 March (Sunday).

                Mrs is in Surin in self isolation for the time being, apparently district / village heads have been told people in their areas coming from BKK must isolate and they are tasked with making sure it happens, but with more people not working (laid off) more and more are going to travel from BKK and the eastern seaboard, increasing the risk of COVID - 19 spread and possible non-compliance of self isolation.
                The BMA have asked people to stay in BKK and not travel to their home provinces, perhaps in hindsight they should have gave that message before 80,000 traveled at the weekend just from Mor Chit.

                  Here in Thailand went out today to buy some food and masks. Not wearing a mask in close proximity to others is frowned on here. At Makro they were selling them at 10.00 which caused a massive queue all around the shop the average distance between people about a foot. I reckon this is doing more harm than good. Amazingly I bought six from a local pharmacy as I have to do my visa renewal soon and for sure they will not like it turning up without a mask. They make life difficult at the best of times.
                  We have some sort of curfew coming into force tomorrow designed to keep us all at home after 6pm until 7am I'm told. I have been social distancing for a week or two now but very few others are as restaurant/bars are still open for food etc. some quite full and little effort to sanitise anything. Many people still think that because more people die on Thailands roads (at the moment) we should not worry about this but as time passes I'm sure the numbers will invert. I truly hope some of the modelling predictions are way off because the numbers are truly scary.

                    Odd DAS, must be different attitudes in different places. Up here in the N.E people have surprised me by how well they're behaving. Soap everywhere, face masks, coffee shops and restaurants only taking away and people staying out of the public in general. This was in stark contrast to how people acted before the boxing arena outbreak. Regarding face masks however, if you don't wear one you're being stared at despite, like you say, the difficulty in getting them. Yet those wearing them still climb on bikes and speed off without helmets???????

                    I cannot get the sheer panic the UK are showing. I understand the fear and apprehension but the panic buying is insane. It really isn't that big a deal to change the way you live. I am in a hotel and fortunately (unlike others I can empathize with) I can work online. I go out and get food, go for a drive with the kids, and the rest of the time stay in. I can get all I want whilst making sure I'm clean and distant when I do step out. I have to sacrifice a few things like my tea and newspapers in my local coffee shop but in reality it's not much to ask.

                      If you're offended by any assistance I give, it says far more about you than it does me.

                        Thailand has closed its borders to foreigners by emergency decree with effect from midnight (Thai time) Wednesday 25th March until 30th April 2020.

                          Sadly appearing to be the case.

                          I heard the curfew in Thailand starts on Friday, 8pm to 5am.

                            Same as here in Hua Hin. Everywhere pretty deserted, most food places already geared up for take aways only, no panic buying and all very relaxed. I have had my temperature taken so many times and so far so good - I might have hypothermia though! Both big malls in Hua Hin closed from tomorrow bar supermarkets, chemists and take away food from those who want to serve it. I even got three bottles of sanitisers yesterday (max purchase)!
