Effect of COVID-19 on YOUR Behaviour ?

Post by Jun » Wed Feb 12, 2020 9:48 pm

1 I quickly dismiss any Hornet profiles with mainly Chinese text in the profile. This implies either he's from a Chinese speaking country (China being the biggest), or he's marketing himself to Chinese clients and may have had exposure to them this year.

2 Avoiding the Blued app.

3 Using lots of alcohol hand sanitizer.

4 Avoiding anyone sneezing or speaking Chinese

That's about the limit of it.

How about everyone else ?

Oh and they have now named it COVID-19. Apparently naming diseases after locations or countries isn't PC. Naming them after animals isn't a good either, as apparently swine flu led to a lot of pigs being slaughtered in Egypt, even though it was not spread by pigs.

I'm sure our members can think of a more relevant name. Wuhan Flu would be obvious.

I have always avoided the Chinese - so this doesn't change my behavior at all.

I avoid the massed ranks of riff raff on the tour groups. They have no idea how to behave. However, Chinese students are much better behaved and are very agreeable company.

At my age, I don't plan to change at all. I always have followed the saying, 'You have nothing to fear, but fear itself. I plan to have a great time I hope when I come for Songkran.

Absolutely NO CHANGE in my behaviour. I follow the WHO's advice, certainly not the alleged Thai Health Minister (university trained in engineering!).
