the numbers vary from place to place - but before loosing your crap over " 1 in 4 eateries will not re-open " google the failrate of eateries in your
area - the numbers that fold in the first year is quite high
I am not losing my crap over anything unless I want to take a dump. Many of these places I have been going to for several years and know the owners
both locals and foreign expat devils. To say everything is peachy Keen is very disingenuous and indicates someone who is unable to open their eyes to
the world around them..
Asia is different than many western countries as people can live and work like dogs for almost nothing and for the most part (being Buddhist) they
accept their lot in life.
Business rentals for property and finance charges do not stop because of a virus... One of the golf courses I play at pays 75,000 (less than 3000 usa
dollars but still allot around here) a month in taxes and finance charges and that is before any grass is mowed, electric and utilities, or staff is
payed. One more month in lock down and it was bankruptcy for them just as it is and is going to be for many major airlines. As a supply is limited the
price goes up and it will take quite a bit of "go up" before businesses even come close to being made whole again.....IMO
I am not a bleeding heart liberal by any stretch but to say people living in misery does not bother me would be a lie. I wish I had a magic wan and
could fix the world but even if I did there would still be those bitching at what I have done .. so I suppose unless the tooth fairy gives me her wan
it is what it is.
