  1. Have fun in Thailand Mike. I am back in TN in the mountain town. All is good here. The USA will pay for all COVID-19 Testing and hospitalization if you are abroad. So – the new budget must have a re-imbursment program. The Medical Director of Health in Thailand is playing the Chineese propagada. They have those trucks with the load speakers in Essan and other places saying that it is the “Frang or Western Virus” to change the narrative that it is comming from west, rather than all the Chineese tourist they have been letting and have only recently blocked. China is also telling the Health Minster in the PI the same thing so they are pushing the virus is comming from the West – to make people forget it is a China Virus. China is saying no more people showing positive so it must be comming from the west. It is a form of saying Face. Also, because Thaland Thailand have been not reporting the correct numbers because of fear of lose from tourism if someone dies they say they did from some other lung infection, but not COVID-19. Now the world is saying why is Thailand so low in numbers so now they are saving face and increasing the numbes saying it is comming from dirty frangs. This allows the health director of Thailand and the PM to save face and not take responsibility for allowing and not stopping all the flights from China which have been goning on since Nov- unitl just a few days ago. Just a not you also need googles to protect the eyes and disposable gloves. In fact, hand santizer is good but just the friction from washing your hands with soap and water is better as reported. I would buy a clear face shield. Face Shields work great. We fly back through Enchoen, South Korea which was a highly infected place with a full plane – everyone escaping back to there home country because other routes where blocked and we came out good. It has been over 17 days since we have been back and all is good.

    1. Thanks Mike. Indeed I just received a note from the State department that ” U.S. citizens who live in the United States should arrange for immediate return to the United States, unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period of time”. Hmmmm …..
      But this part got my attention: “On March 14, the Department of State authorized the departure of U.S. personnel and family members from any diplomatic or consular post in the world who have determined they are at higher risk of a poor outcome if exposed to COVID-19 or who have requested departure based on a commensurate justification.  These departures may limit the ability of U.S. Embassies and consulates to provide services to U.S. citizens”
