The following is our weekly feature in which we ask our readers a news related question and highlight your answers and feedback at the end of each week.

This week, as it is the biggest item in the news, we want to ask our readers what additional measures, if any, should they take around the new cluster of Covid-19 infections coming out of Samut Sakhon near Bangkok? Do you have faith in their current measures and trace and testing system? Do you think regional lockdowns are enough or would you support national lockdowns, despite the huge economic cost?  Would you call for less or more events and gatherings canceled? Do you think any businesses or venues should be closed or restricted?

As a bonus question, who do you hold responsible for the new outbreak? Migrant workers? The companies that employ them? The Government? Border patrol? The Health Minister? The CCSA? The Prime Minister? The Governor of Samut Sakhon? Or something else? Or a combination of those?

You can comment below, on our social media or mail us at We look forward to your response and will publish them next weekend.
