    I posted in the Covid thread news of rezoning (the country is now geographically mostly yellow) and restaurants being allowed to open "as normal".

    There is no mention of alcohol being banned, which many are taking to read as the ban being lifted.

    Clarification is, I am sure, being sought by all and sundry.

    Yet, alcohol is still being obtained and consumed [for months] under the so call restrictive protocols and ban. They don't require clarification.
    You might find it much easier to see such from a local view, less your all and sundry [aka tourists/Farang] -

    Yes, saw that. Thanks for posting. However here in what since near day one has been yellow, currently no alcohol cept in a tall coffee cup.

    As to the OP, percent vaccinated hovers around 1% in the boonies but not to worry all will be well in 120 days.

    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    We'll see...
    Expect the official 120 days to be extended under emergency decree.
    Almost guaranteed.



    Shhhh....
    Don't rock the boat.
    We're on a proposed and fanciful schedule.


    * the real note should not equate immunization of the population and the chase to reopen bullshit and assorted politics.
    get the population vaccinated firstly and then [overly] concern yourself with the nonsense of opening up.


    From the looks of it - it's gonna be a while. The programs are steeped in bureaucracy and stumbling over themselves.
    Yet, talk the good talk.....nonetheless.

    Here beyond the boonies it hovers around zero. The gf knows only two people who have been vaccinated, one is her friend who is a nurse at the local hospital and another works in Immigration. The local hospital turned away everyone who thought they had appointments this week.

    My local was happy to serve me a "magic" orange juice.

    The article explictly states that this sad state of affairs will continue in the new Dark Red Zones.

    But all it says about the Yellow ones is that "Restaurants can open as usual".

    I suppose no-one has thought to say what "usual" actually means?

    Gov confident it can meet 120 day reopening goal

    BANGKOK (NNT) - Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Energy Supattanapong Punmeechaow has clarified the government’s intention of reopening the entire nation to foreigners within 120 days, saying the countdown will start on July 1, placing its deadline at the end of October this year.


    Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha detailed in a statement that the government has established contact with six COVID-19 vaccine producers, with AstraZeneca and Sinovac already making deliveries and Pfizer, Johnson and Johnson, Moderna and Sinopharm already at the signing and reservation phases. Overall, the country is to receive 105.5 million doses, exceeding an initial target of 100 million, which will allow for the vaccination of 50 million people or 70 percent of the population.


    The PM outlined that to meet the government’s timeline, 10 million doses have to be administered on a monthly basis, acknowledging that sufficient vaccine is not available for the month of June. He elaborated that the target for the month was six million doses but so far only 1.8 million have arrived.


    Deputy Minister of Public Health Satit Pitutecha, fielding questions from Seri Ruam Thai Party MPs on behalf of the PM in Parliament, claimed today that Thailand has an agreement with AstraZeneca for 61 million doses of its vaccine and was set to receive 6 million of the doses in June. At present, 1 million doses are bound for the country next week, while the total received so far is 4 million doses. From July to November this year, the nation is to receive a further 10 million doses every month before a final delivery of 5 million doses in December. He expressed confidence the deliveries will proceed as planned.


    The government is also looking to the approaching Phuket Tourism Sandbox program to bolster confidence in its reopening plans. The Sandbox scheme is to be launched on July 1, and Phuket is stepping up efforts to achieve a target of 70 percent of its population vaccinated by that date. Hotels, tourism businesses and restaurants are giving full support to the plan, securing SHA and SHA+ certification by enhancing hygiene measures, and vaccinating over 70 percent of their staff. So far, 300 hotels have received SHA+.


    Overall, public cooperation with the program has been forthcoming with all sides hoping the reintroduction of tourists will bolster the local economy.
    With a clear timeline for vaccinations, stringent control of preventative measures and good cooperation, the government is confident it will make good on its plan to reopen the entire nation in 120 days under the New Normal.

    Really Jeff.

    So you didn't know alcohol was banned in restaurants.

    Your feeble attempts at portraying yourself as some kind of Thailand guru are actually quite laughable.

    Maybe you should try and visit one day soon, it might be a revelation.

    I'm amused by the fact that they are hoping the idiots (like Jeff) don't notice that they said Phuket will open on July 1st because they will have vaccinated enough of the population by then.

    And today...


    "The government plans to administer about 10 million Covid-19 vaccine doses
    next month, with Bangkok to get the largest share and at least 70% of people in Phuket to receive their second jab, according to a senior spokesman."

    Reckon this headline will repeat daily until Thailand actually reopens at which time the headline will read, "Thanks to Prayut's leadership,Thailand reopens 119 days before government goal".

    Who's gonna want to go to Phuket and be tagged for the duration.

    Even if their home country allows it.

    I can't envisage any tourism internationally till next year.

    Keep it real Prayup

    Well a few if you believe Reuters numbers.

    BANGKOK, June 18 (Reuters) - Thailand’s planned reopening of the resort island Phuket next month to vaccinated visitors, bypassing quarantine requirements, has met a lukewarm response, with hotel bookings indicating expected occupancy of less than 20% so far.
