As more you search for the virus as more you will find it!! Because it is a virus. Not special dangerous like we know already now.

Have Covid testing units on hospital grounds, NOT inside hospitals unless it is a Covid 'field hospital'! Keep example Chalong hospital closure affair in mind. Complete medical off the road happening. Don't have illusion that 'Aroi Ho' restaurant is the only place of Covid virus spreading. How many more restaurants/bars just keep quiet/play dumb for thai sake of money making?
