    The country will take a generation to bail out this COVID induced debt but as usual you sit there Cyrille in the ME with your tax free income making jibes safe in the knowledge that you'll not have to contribute. You are a vacuous little coward really, akin to goading kids to fight whist you sit there smug on the sideline.

    Here's cartoon for you and now perhaps we can move on.

    You can't fault them for trying.

    Thailand's tourism industry launched a campaign on Tuesday, hoping to persuade the country to welcome visitors back by July.

    Launched Tuesday, the #OpenThailandSafely campaign hopes to welcome international tourists back to Thailand by July 1, campaign organizers shared with Travel + Leisure, a date which they believe provides enough time for vaccines to make their way around the world.

    In addition leaving enough time for travelers to get vaccinated, organizers argued the July 1 date would give Thai medical authorities the opportunity to vaccinate front line staff and vulnerable citizens, and would give the tourism industry (like airlines and hotels) time to prepare to welcome visitors.


    Organizers estimate it will take at least a year to return to pre-pandemic tourism numbers in Thailand.


    "The 1 July reopening would be a strategic opportunity for Thailand to show a leadership role among Asian countries and prepare the way for a solid recovery of the Thai economy in 2022," CEO of YAANA Ventures, one of the groups supporting the campaign, Willem Niemeijer, told T+L in a statement.

    The group plans to send their request to the country's prime minister general, minister of tourism and sports, and governor of the tourism authority of Thailand.

    The effort comes a few weeks after the popular beach destination Phuket laid out its plan to
    vaccinate its own residents in order to begin welcoming vaccinated tourists by October. It also comes after Thailand started allowing tourists to enter the country, but only if they agreed to stay for several months and underwent a two-week quarantine.


    The rollout of the vaccine around the world has put a spotlight on the concept of
    vaccine passports. Some countries — like the Seychelles and Georgia — have embraced the idea, welcoming vaccinated Americans to their shores, while some states — including Vermont — are allowing vaccinated travelers to skip quarantine measures.

    ^ there’s no “quarantine” in the states, and when they say there is, it’s completely unenforced.

    Health Ministry Panel Suggests Private Sector to Import Covid-19 Vaccines


    BANGKOK (NNT) -A panel of advisers at the Public Health Ministry has suggested private companies be allowed to import another 15-20 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine by the end of this year.


    Vice-minister Dr Sopon Mekthon said the panel agreed that Thailand still needed more doses of Covid-19 vaccines, in addition to the planned 63 million doses.


    He said Thailand has a population of about 65 million. If about 15 million teenagers were subtracted from the sum, the number of those eligible for vaccines would be about 50 million, plus another five million foreign migrants. With a calculation based on 80% of the 55 million people, about 40 million would receive two jabs of vaccines each which would require about 80 million doses.


    Dr Sopon said apart from the planned 63 million doses, about 15-20 million more should be procured, though details regarding the prices had yet to be discussed.

THEN I asked if the rehab centers would let in visitors and they said NO. Couldn’t stand the thought of my mother being stuck in a room with no family allowed to visit. Brought her home yesterday with rehab coming here. What a pain in the bum but better than the alternative, I reckon. (Ask me again next week and I may have changed my mind.)

    Gosh, imagine having the political authority to "suggest" something.

    Meanwhile farang up and down the country still wonder if they are ever going to get vaccinated.

    Thailand really is dropping the ball on vaccination. Waiting until stupid o’clock to order the shittiest vaccine in an amount that will barely vaccinate the government cronies.

    And STILL blocking private hospitals from procuring their own and allowing people to make their own choices.

    Retarded.

    I expect as usual they are fighting over who gets what slice of the skim.

    Another cracking idea from the governmental equivalent of the Keystone Kops.

    A proposal to allow foreign visitors to leave their hotel rooms after the first three days of their mandatory 14-day quarantine period will be submitted to the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA).

    If approved, visitors next month would only be required to spend three days in their hotel rooms. Visitors could leave their rooms after three days but they must not leave their hotel for 11 more days.
    Although

    The government will also consider a plan to allow visitors who have received Covid-19 vaccinations to enter Thailand without having to undergo the mandatory 14-day quarantine period, the source said.
    but then again

    Some foreign visitors who arrived in Thailand on Feb 18 under the Golf Quarantine programme, which allows foreigners to quarantine in golf resorts to boost the ailing tourism sector during the coronavirus pandemic, tested positive for the virus, the source said.

    The countries opening their doors to vaccinated travellers

    Seychelles
    The Seychelles has announced that vaccinated tourists from any part of the world are welcome – as long as they have received the complete dose, have certification to prove it, and more than two weeks have passed since the final jab. Its own vaccination schedule continues apace.
    Cyprus
    In December, Cyprus announced a plan to waive testing requirements for arrivals who have been vaccinated, making it the first destination to specify that immunised travellers will not need to meet other COVID-related entry rules. However, the country's ministry of health is yet to confirm if this will go ahead, as planned, in March.
    Estonia
    Estonia said it will waive mandatory quarantine for travellers who can provide proof of vaccination or who can prove they have recovered from the virus in the previous six months.
    Georgia
    "Citizens of all countries, travelling by air from any country may enter Georgia if they present the document confirming the full course (two doses) of any COVID-19 vaccination at the border checkpoints of Georgia," said the Georgian Government.
    Hungary
    Hungary's government said it could require visitors to prove their vaccination status to gain access to the country via an app showing immunity to COVID-19. "The need for citizens to provide proof that they have gained protection against the coronavirus is increasing all over the world," a government spokesperson said.
    Romania
    The country's National Committee for Emergency Situations (CNSU) said that people coming from countries or areas of high risk, or who have come into direct contact with someone who's tested positive for COVID, are exempt from quarantine measures if they are fully vaccinated.
