More than 140 people in Houston, TX have tested positive for COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated. That’s according to data provided by the city’s Health Department, which found those in question got infected more than two weeks after receiving the vaccine. Now Germany & Israel Health Departments are finding the same with their people, feeling that the shots may have weakened the immune system in the body.

Bangkok shuts down entertainment district as Covid-19 cluster explodes

Thailand banned the sale of alcoholic beverages in restaurants and closed schools for two weeks to stem the nation's biggest outbreak of coronavirus, likely delaying plans to further reopen borders to foreign tourists.

The closure of bars, pubs, karaoke and massage parlours in areas including Bangkok, the epicentre of the latest outbreak, will be extended nationwide until the end of April. A Covid-19 task force headed by Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-Ocha on Friday also designated Bangkok and 17 other provinces as areas under maximum control because of the severity of the outbreak.

Prayuth ruled out harsher measures such as a nationwide lockdown and night curfews, citing the economic hit of such steps on low-income groups. The Southeast Asian nation had last week closed entertainment venues in Bangkok and 40 other provinces for at least two weeks to contain the nation's third wave of infections that emerged from bars in the capital city.

Under the fresh round of restrictions, restaurants in the red zones must close by 9pm starting Sunday, and those in less-risky provinces by 11pm. The Prayuth-led panel also directed employees of government departments and agencies to work from home for the next two weeks and appealed to the private sector to do the same. The panel also banned gatherings of 50 or more people without prior approval.

An empty Khaosan Road in Bangkok, Thailand. An outbreak, linked to clubs and bars in Bangkok's popular nightlife districts, has led to mass testing throughout the country.

 

Prayuth said the government was in talks with vaccine makers including Pfizer Inc. and Russia's Gamaleya Institute to secure additional supplies as it seeks to inoculate 60 per cent of its population by the end of the year. Any fresh procurement will supplement the 73 million dozes already ordered from AstraZeneca and Sinovac Biotech.

The latest control measures dampen the annual Songkran festivities, when millions of Thais travel across the country for family reunions and holidays, and weaken private consumption and domestic tourism. An extended period of restrictions may delay plans to lure vaccinated tourists and further weaken an economic recovery that the Thai central bank says is contingent on return of foreign visitors.

The new measures will hurt retail and recreation activities which had returned to pre-pandemic levels in recent months and derail attempts to revive the all-important tourism industry, Moody's Analytics said in a report this week. The economy will contract 0.6 per cent in the first quarter from the previous three months, it said, reversing an earlier forecast for 1.3 per cent growth.

"We expect the Thai government to roll out additional stimulus to lessen the fallout from the pandemic," Eric Chiang, associate economist at Moody's Analytics, said in the report. "Thailand will face a slow economic recovery, and the government deficit will remain elevated at 4.8 per cent in 2021 and 3.2% per cent in 2022."

Thailand reported 1582 new Covid-19 cases on Friday, a single-day record, that took the cumulative tally of infections to 39,038. The new wave, which began early this month, has spread to more than 70 provinces and infected more than 10,000 people, some of them with a more contagious variant first found in the UK.

As could be expected, total nonsense. Currently available vaccines weakening the immune system would be breaking news. Maybe leatherjacket-Jesus had a bad dream and told his fans about it. 45 % of all Republican voters refuse vaccination, how stupid can it get?

Hi,

"7-11 Closed between 11PM - 4AM "

This doesn't really make sense to me. How many people frequent a 7-11 between those hours anyway?

Sanuk!

 

Well back in the day when I parties a lot I visited many at those times :)

 

actually I suspect a lot of shift workers

Masks work?

Stanford study quietly published at NIH.gov proves face masks are absolutely worthless against Covid

The diapers most of us are wearing on our face most of the time apparently have no effect at stopping Covid-19. This explains a lot.

Did you hear about the peer-reviewed study done by Stanford University that demonstrates beyond a reasonable doubt that face masks have absolutely zero chance of preventing the spread of Covid-19? No? It was posted on the the National Center for Biotechnological Information government website. The NCBI is a branch of the National Institute for Health, so one would think such a study would be widely reported by mainstream media and embraced by the “science-loving” folks in Big Tech.

Instead, a DuckDuckGo search reveals it was picked up by ZERO mainstream media outlets and Big Tech tyrants will suspend people who post it, as political strategist Steve Cortes learned the hard way when he posted a Tweet that went against the face mask narrative. The Tweet itself featured a quote and a link that prompted Twitter to suspend his account, potentially indefinitely.
