Re: “CCSA shake-up looms”, (BP, Sept 8).

In “CCSA shake-up looms”, Dr Rewat Wisutwet, a list MP, stated, “the Ministry of Public Health must be permitted to lead the enforcement of the law and work individually from any political disturbance”.

This declaration highlights simply how separated from the tiniest taint of democracy Thailand’s federal government actually is. Everybody ought to be warned that the so-called pandemic is simply viewed as a method of usefulness for contending ministries and bureaucrats to get more power unattended by the Thai individuals.


Incredible Pattaya?

Re: “Resuming jitters strike in Pattaya”, ( BP, Sept 8).

I praise Pattaya’s incredible success in immunizing its population– 80% according to the Chon Buri provincial guv. That’s double the figure reported recently in a short article on Pattaya’s resuming. Vaccination centres should have been working overtime in the recently. I would anticipate figures for a fairly compact city to be greater than the nationwide average, however 7 times the nationwide typical vaccination rate?

Sorry to be a sceptic, however I do not think either of those figures.


Boosters required

Re: “Blended concerns”, (PostBag, Sept 9).

I disagree that the federal government has actually got its concerns blended. From all the reports I have actually checked out, the federal government’s top priority is to get the entire nation immunized as quickly as possible.

Nevertheless, it would be insanity to stick our heads in the sand and pretend that booster shots will not be needed. Present clinical viewpoint worldwide, such as the United States Centers for Illness Control (CDC), have actually validated the requirement for booster shots as the infection has actually altered considering that the early phases of the vaccine rollout.

In Thailand Sinovac is now just administered as a very first dosage with a 2nd dosage of AstraZeneca to take on the primary Delta variation. A booster shot of AstraZeneca will for that reason likewise be required for those who got 2 shots of Sinovac in order to prevent a ticking time bomb.

Regarding the concern impersonated to whose lives the federal government thinks about so crucial that they must get a 3rd vaccination, as has actually currently been reported in the Bangkok Post, frontline health employees who are at high danger through dealing with Covid-19 clients every day would obviously be prioritised.

As soon as enough materials of AstraZeneca appear the senior and those struggling with underlying health problems will require a booster shot as quickly as possible as they are the ones most at danger from severe health problem and death from Covid-19.


A Real failure

Re: “Is this moving on?”, ( BP, Sept 12).

Fred Prager (PostBag, Sept 12) is best on point concerning TrueVisions and their utter failure to offer superior material to customers. They have actually had 6 months’ notification to change the Fox Sports and Fox film material. In a little bit more than 2 weeks I film from my Platinum Plan to something looking like a brand-new Lead Plan.

Mr Prager keeps in mind superior sports and films are being changed with Asian animations and dramas. The cable/satellite monopoly has when again raised its awful head. Real Visions agents recommended I get a VPN to sign up for foreign app services for Western material. Is that even legal here?


Prolonged apologia

Re: “Thailand does something about it”, (PostBag, Sept 11).

If the Guinness Book of Records provided any such title as “longest letter to the editor”, Saturday’s sole contribution from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs would win by a mile. All really intriguing, I make sure, for anybody with the perseverance to till through it, however is the PostBag area actually the suitable platform for what total up to a rather prolonged ministerial apologia?
