    Jakarta

    Just returned from Jakarta, I totally avoided the clubs, thanks to social media I got home (hotel) delivery for all my fun.

    The line in the airport immigration has literally no one, never seen it like that before, I still believe there is a lot of media hype surrounding the coronavirus, the hype will be over just like SARS and Mad Cow disease.

    Been there. Really, not that "Wild West / east". The mongering is subpar. Mostly old chubby ladies. There are a few news posts that play up the extremes hoping for more clicks. But honestly don't expect endangered species on sale in markets or signs offer minors or other crazy stuff. Traveling through Wa Army controlled area is a tiny adrenaline surge, so go for the culture but don't go for the women. Far better in JK, BKK, RGN. Etc.

    I have had multiple doctors in the USA and I can't recall a doctor in the USA ever spending more than 4 minutes with me. I usually wait about an hour in the waiting room, then the nurse takes my height, weight, temp and blood pressure. She leads me into a room where I wait between 30 minutes to an hour for the doctor. The doctor comes in and he's done in around 4 minutes every single time. Most times I think it's closer to 2 minutes. I am then maybe taken by the nurse for her to get a blood sample, but normally I just go home. So how is VN any different from the USA?

    I find the health care at Bumrungrad hospital in Bangkok to be far better than any I have ever had in the USA. I have supposed 'cadillac' insurance in the USA, but I normally prefer seeing the doctors in Bangkok and just paying out of pocket.

    Unfortunately, health care in Indonesia is not as good as it is in Thailand.

    Masbule's post didn't make much of a splash amid covid news.

    Seems train tracks raided. Does that mean closed permanently?

    Reading that it is empty.

    Exactly my thoughts. Though I don't fear that much on getting infected in the home country. I do fear about getting infected and can't return home on time.

    I would like to request the admin to integrate a thanks button.

    LOL. Probably a fake pic making its circulation around the world on social media.

    Being in the health care industry you would also know that there are fewer doctors per capita in the East compared to the West. General awareness is lower. Sanitation and environmental conditions are less favorable.

    Little surprise that a doctor sees a patient every 4 minutes.

    As for death show me one person who isn't afraid of death.

    OK. Let me chime in. Working in health care for many years in SE Asia has taught me some things. Asian people are always afraid of dying. This is why they pack the hospitals in Singapore, vietnam, philippines, etc. For minor illness that people in the western world take care of at home. Vomit once or twice. They go to the hospital. Sniffles and sneezes, got to see the doctor. For example, in VN, a physician sees a patient every 4 minutes, in Singapore not much different (maybe every 6 minutes) and they always expect to get a prescription. We would go crazy if a doctor saw us in the western world for 4 minutes. And the doctors know this is not good.

    This is one reason why antibiotic resistance is so high. Big misuse of these drugs (and buying them without a prescription in VN). Unfortunately, there is little way to change this culture. I'm not playing down the seriousness of Corona virus, but life has to go on.

    I've attached a pic sent to me today by a friend in SG. Taken on the SG MRT. If this woman wears this get up (cloth mask which is totally ineffective) on the MRT, what do you think she makes a guy wear for sex (I'm guessing at least 2 condoms but could be more). Note, a lot of people don't have masks on. I'm bringing some 55 gallon drum clear bags to hand out with me.

    I'm off to SG in a week, then to VN. But having lived in the medical world where we practice universal precautions, I will implement these personally, stay out of large crowds, wash hands or use hand santizer and yep, I do have masks to wear although they offer limited protection according to the CDC.

    GG.

    Again, I would say that at Chinese Burmese border and bordertowns you need to be worried about the HIV virus, not the coronavirus.

    Look into the EXPLOSION of HIV in that very specific area over the last decade.

    Your info is more current than mine. Thanks for the update.

It is still a go as far as I am concerned, but I watch the new case numbers on a daily basis. If the numbers should really start to take off, I will cancel my trip in a heartbeat and like I said, head to Sao Paulo. But right now, I don't see the point of changing my plans. Except for China and aboard that Cruise ship everything looks pretty benign, at least for the present. I have girls on the ground in BKK and one is visiting Singapore as I write this. They are telling me everything is a little slow, but more or less normal. You are in Singapore. Aren't the people there more or less going about their daily lives?

Or B) You can buy a 14 day visa and stay in Mong La. However the 14 day visa is limited to travel between Tachelik and Mong La. In addition, the Burmese authorities at the border will issue local travel permits only. They keep your passport until you return to Tachelik.
