Sorry, if the bold italics are too much for your eyes, no doubt in search of good news, but only yesterday, the Thaiger reported . . .

 . . . as PM Prayut Chan-o-cha took to Facebook yesterday to announce that many Covid-19 restrictions will be lifted . . . PM Prayut said that the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration and the Ministry of Public Health both agree that Covid-19 infections and outbreaks 'are coming under control'.

And, today, the Bangkok figure is on the up again, at 925

How can these people get things so clearly wrong?
