Reader Talkback: How long do you think the current “round” of Covid-19 infections and cases will last in Thailand?


The following is our weekly feature in which we ask our readers a news topical question and get their insight and opinions. We then share their feedback a week later and pick a variety of diverse and interesting responses.

This week we are going to ask you:

How long do you think the current round of Covid-19 infections and closures in Thailand, including Chonburi, home of Pattaya, will last?

As a bonus, sub-question we would like you to give your thoughts on how long you think bars and entertainment venues will stay closed, or how long they should, and what criteria should take place for any sort of opening.

For context around this question, take a look at these articles:

RECAP: Thailand finds 980 domestic infections among 985 new Covid-19 daily cases in past 24 hours

Closure of entertainment venues in Pattaya begins for “two weeks”, Police warn restaurants against becoming bars

Let us know in comments, on our social media, or mail us at we look forward to hearing from you and will publish the results next week.
