Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

I could no longer stomach Facebook in the US, dumped it completely....
I will not be party to their fraud, and supporting them in doing it.

So---I appreciate this forum---and all the effort that goes into it, and has gone into it.
So I'm here regular, and looking for news and information.

Thank you.
