IS IS IMPOSSIBLE OR IT'S POSSIBLE

The long-awaited reopening to foreign tourists is likely to take shape in July, led by Phuket as the pilot area for a tourism sandbox -- the first initiative to remove mandatory quarantine from entry requirements.

The Andaman beaches once bustling with foreigners have been left deserted for over a year, able to draw a limited number of local guests who prefer a short-distance trip rather than roaming too far from home.

Phuket's tourism income of 442 billion baht in 2019 evaporated to 108 billion last year because of the pandemic, with 98.8 billion of that total coming from the first two months before the nationwide lockdown.

From June to December 2020, local guests generated only 1.3 billion baht per month for the province, a stark contrast to the 32.7 billion earned from the mostly foreign market in the pre-pandemic period.

Despite having a more concrete plan than previous efforts to reopen to the international market, tourism authorities admit the sandbox is not a panacea as obstacles remain, the most prominent a mass vaccination campaign in Thailand and visitor origin countries.

An unpredictable outbreak of the virus could spring up at anytime, washing away the sandbox's carefully constructed plans, as happened in several countries last year.

The government's target to generate 348 billion baht in tourism revenue from the foreign market this year remains a stretch for a country struggling to increase GDP growth to 4% in 2021.

LONG AND WINDING ROAD

"I pledge to bring 950,000 Covid-19 vaccine doses to Phuket and inoculate 70% of the local population by June. If we cannot reach this target, the tourism sandbox will not occur," Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn, the tourism and sports minister, told more than 300 hotel operators at a meeting last week.

That June deadline makes it a race against time as the province has now only booked 100,000 doses.

The government is maintaining its target of 1.2 trillion baht in revenue from both the international and domestic tourism market this year, but that may require some bilateral agreements.

Mr Phiphat said Thailand recently held a discussion with Hong Kong on a travel bubble scheme and seeks similar dialogues with other areas. A travel bubble is a bilateral agreement that allows inoculated tourists from the two locations to travel freely without quarantine.

The deal has to be reciprocal, meaning citizens of both countries can take outbound trips and not be restricted by quarantine upon their return home.

As of March 31, Hong Kong still requires a 21-day quarantine for all arrivals.

An agreement with low-risk countries such as Taiwan is feasible, but analysts have suggested Thailand could face roadblocks in dealing with China, a major trading and investment partner that wants greater influence in the region.

Yuthasak Supasorn, governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), said the tourism industry likely will not see a revival until the final quarter, when five more destinations -- Krabi, Phangnga, Koh Samui, Pattaya and Chiang Mai -- are added to the sandbox.

The number of international arrivals to Phuket from July to September could be as moderate as 100,000 because tourists from Asia, a major target of Thai tourism campaigns, may not be ready to take outbound trips.

Some countries are slow in their vaccination progress, while a number of governments are prohibiting their people from cross-border travel to curb spread of the virus.

Mr Yuthasak said European countries may achieve herd immunity by the third quarter, but could disregard the Far East for travel because that period is summer holiday season in Europe.

"When travel restrictions in Europe are lifted, people there may travel within the region first during summer. Thailand is the next choice when winter approaches," he said.



NO SEA SWIMMING = NO HOPE

From April, the Thai government shortened the quarantine period from 14 to 10 days for international arrivals (except those from countries with Covid-19 variants), and seven days for vaccine certificate holders.

It also introduced the "Area Quarantine" scheme that allows tourists to check in at designated hotels and leave the room to use other facilities within the hotel area. But hoteliers raised concerns about some restrictions, particularly the prohibition against swimming in the sea, which have made some markets such as the Russians think twice about coming to Thailand in the second quarter.

Under the current regulations, tourists can only play in open water if those hotels have a private beach. Only a few hotels have that privilege.

Mr Phiphat said the ministry acknowledges this regulation is a weakness, but it is likely to remain until at least June.

Moreover, any mandatory quarantine, even a shorter period or looser restrictions, is still a hindrance to tourists wanting to visit, he said.

A TAT e-survey of 18 markets found most prefer destinations that already lifted mandatory quarantine.

For instance, 84.5% of Chinese and 97.9% of Russians opt for quarantine-free overseas trips, meaning there's minimal hope for the Thai sector in the second quarter, said Mr Yuthasak.



GAME CONTROLLER

Woranate Laprabang, chief executive of Thai Vietjet (TVJ), said those countries that can vaccinate the majority of their population and achieve herd immunity first will be in control of negotiations over cross-border travel.

When communities are safe from Covid-19, they have the privilege to choose with whom they want to partner, said Mr Woranate.

"Singapore has been outstanding in terms of vaccination progress. If the country inoculates 70-80% of the population by August, it can pick which countries it wants to open up to for travel," he said.

Mr Woranate said while Thailand will not achieve herd immunity as fast as neighbouring countries, the partial reopening of the Phuket sandbox may help mitigate the impact.

TVJ, like other airlines in Thailand, is queuing for vaccine administration. When its 740 staff are inoculated, the company will restart international flights that have tourist demand, he said.

Last year TVJ carried 3 million passengers. This year it hopes to increase the number to 6-7 million, with 1-2 million international guests.

BET ON THE FUTURE

Danucha Pichayanan, secretary-general of the National Economic and Social Development Council (NESDC), said the government plan to reopen the country to foreign tourists is expected to help the economy from the third quarter.

On Feb 15, the NESDC predicted Thailand would draw 3.2 million foreign visitors, generating 320 billion baht in revenue this year. The prediction assumes foreign visitors are allowed to visit Thailand by the fourth quarter.

Kattiya Indaravijaya, chief executive at Kasikornbank (KBank), said tourism recovery depends largely on three factors: the government's reopening policy; the policies of tourist origin countries towards international travel; and vaccination progress.

"The vaccine passport is an important tool to help Thai tourism recover, but implementation of such a scheme takes time, depending on the speed of vaccine rollouts globally, vaccine effectiveness and Thailand's procedures in accommodating international visitors," she said.

KBank predicts the country's tourism recovery takes place in three phases. The first is driven by domestic travel during 2021-2022, while the second phase is bolstered by short-haul travel within the region, primarily for business purposes.

The third phase is supported by global travel, with more leisure travel to Thailand while business travel substantially declines as more business transactions are carried out virtually.

"It will take more than three years for Thai tourism to recover. The hospitality sector is expected to generate 2.7 trillion baht in 2024, close to the pre-pandemic level of 3 trillion in 2019," said Ms Kattiya.

She said the pandemic began in December 2019 and has dragged down global tourism to the lowest level in 33 years.

The crisis sent shockwaves throughout tourism supply chains, from accommodation, restaurants and souvenir shops to car rentals at tourism hubs, said Ms Kattiya.

In 2020, Thailand lost more than 2.1 trillion baht in tourism revenue, representing 13% of GDP.

The resurgence of Covid-19 late last year also hindered a potential recovery in tourism. The pandemic cost the tourism sector more than 55 billion baht during the first two months of 2021, she said.

According to Ms Kattiya, the tourism industry contributed 3 trillion baht to the Thai economy in 2019, representing 18% of the country's GDP, of which 2 trillion came from foreign tourists, representing 12% of GDP, and 1 trillion from domestic travel, or 6% of GDP.

Thai embassies around the world have started posting an update to the information needed for foreigners if they wish to enter #Thailand between 1st April and 30th September 2021. If everything goes well, we can presume that they plan to fully re-open the country on 1st October.
The Special Tourist Visa (STV) will cease to exist from 1st October. If things go to plan, people can enter without doing a quarantine. But they will need a vaccine certificate much like some people still need a yellow fever free certificate if they come from certain countries.

Reuters


BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thai authorities on Friday agreed to allow foreigners inoculated against the coronavirus to travel to its biggest holiday island without undergoing quarantine, and announced a new order for five million more doses of AstraZeneca’s vaccine.


With arrival numbers plummeting this past year, tourism-reliant Thailand is racing to secure vaccines for its population and reopen the country to foreigners in a pilot project for vaccine passports.

“If we can inoculate 50% to 60% of the population we can open the country safely and move the economy and tourism forward,” senior health official Kiattiphum Wongraijit said.

Its main vaccination drive is expected to start in June, with the goal of immunising half of its population by year-end.


It will receive an additional five million AstraZeneca doses, as well as five million more doses procured from Sinovac Biotech’s, the health ministry said on Friday.

That would take its overall vaccine order to 73 million doses.

The coronavirus task force on Friday gave the green light to Phuket, a major tourist destination, to receive vaccinated visitors directly from July, without subjecting them to quarantine, after the island inoculates 70% of its residents.


Thailand has until now made entry requirements strict, including mandatory quarantine, which has devastated tourism, but helped limit infections to just 28,577 so far, with 92 fatalities.

From next month, the hotel quarantine period will be halved to seven days for fully vaccinated visitors to Phuket, Pattaya, Koh Samui, Chiang Mai, Phang Nga and Krabi, Tourism Authority of Thailand Governor Yuthasak Supasorn told a news conference.

By the fourth quarter, the quarantine waiver is expected to be implemented in five holiday destinations, he said.

The central bank expects to see 3 million foreign tourists this year, compared to nearly 40 million in 2019 before the virus struck.


Roadmap














Phuket open for visitors

source

BANGKOK -- Thailand will start allowing foreign travelers who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 to visit the popular resort island of Phuket without quarantining first -- the country's latest desperate effort to revive its tourism sector.

The Centre for Economic Situation Administration, a special economic council chaired by Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha, made the decision on Friday. The cabinet is expected to endorse the plan as soon as Tuesday at its regular weekly meeting.

Starting in July, tourists will have to fly directly to the southern island in the Andaman Sea to enjoy quarantine-free stays.


Other requirements are still being discussed. Visitors will likely have to show proof that they have been vaccinated and are not infected upon arrival. They may still be required to take PCR tests at the airport and install a tracing app provided by the government.

The island of Samui, another tourism hot spot, will not be eligible for the program, although it had been mentioned in local media reports as a strong candidate. The government decided the island's airport is too small to handle direct international flights.

"If the country opens up faster for foreign tourists, it will allow us to raise income faster," said Danucha Pichayanan, secretary-general of the office of the National Economic and Social Development Council -- the government's planning agency.

Tourism-related businesses account for roughly 20% of gross domestic product for Southeast Asia's second-largest economy. During a virtually visitor-less 2020, service exports -- which include spending by nonresidents such as tourists -- slumped 60.0% compared to 2019.

The economy as a whole shrank 6.1%, the fastest contraction since the Asian financial crisis in the late 1990s. On Wednesday, the Bank of Thailand cut its growth forecast for 2021 to 3.0% from 3.2%.

The Phuket plan was approved by business operators on the island beforehand, according to the government. "They have joined forces and offered to be a reopening model for major tourist provinces," said Deputy Prime Minister Supattanapong Punmeechaow on Thursday. "There are flights to the province and hotels to attract quality tourists," he added.

For the "sandbox" experiment to begin, Phuket must achieve herd immunity by inoculating 70% of the population, according to Tourism Authority of Thailand Gov. Yuthasak Supasorn. The plan is to roll out the first round of inoculations from April 15 and the second round from May 15.

The island province was home to 414,471 people as of 2020, according to the Ministry of Interior.

The sandbox plan is not the only reopening measure the government intends to implement in the coming months. The Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration, the government's coronavirus policy body, has proposed shortening the kingdom's quarantine period for international arrivals to 10 days from 14, starting April 1. It has not clarified its reasoning and no official cabinet endorsement has been released via the public journal, the Royal Gazette.

Government approves plan to reopen Phuket from July - Thai Enquirer




The government has agreed to reopen the resort island of Phuket to vaccinated international tourists with no quarantine from July 1, subject to the island’s own vaccine roll-out, the tourism authority said Friday.

The Centre for Economic Situation Administration (CESA) approved the Phuket quarantine-free arrival as a pilot plan for major tourism provinces, which could open in same way from October.

The Phuket reopening model, known as Sandbox, will require the island to achieve herd immunity by vaccinating 70 per cent of its population before the foreign visitors arrive, said the governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand.

“The reopening plan will depend largely on vaccine allocation,” said Yuthasak Supasorn, adding that the estimate of visitor numbers was at least 100,000 in the third quarter.

According to the plan, at least 466,587 of Phuket’s population will need to receive two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine, meaning a total of 933,174 doses, with the first round beginning on April 15 and the second on May 15.

Foreign tourists coming to Phuket will need to show proof of vaccination, take a Covid-19 screening test at the airport, and activate the tracing application ThailandPlus.

The latest foreign arrivals outlook in 2021 from the country’s central bank is 3 million, down from its December forecast of 5.5 million.

Thailand,Bangkok : Canal project wins Asian habitat award for its Klong Ong Ang canal renovation project. -





spruced up: 
A family goes kayaking in Klong Ong Ang in the central Bangkok district of Phra Nakhon. The historical canal has been cleaned and its banks given a facelift to attract visitors.

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has won a UN-Habitat award for its Klong Ong Ang canal renovation project.

UN-Habitat’s regional office and its partners recently hosted the 2020 Asian Townscape Awards (ATA), and Thailand is one of six countries that won awards.

Bangkok governor Aswin Kwanmuang said the canal’s renovation project won the 2020 Asian Townscape Awards of UN-Habitat Fukuoka, which was also given to Japan, South Korea, China, Nepal and Malaysia.

He said those countries served as models for city planners enriching people’s lives while conserving the environment.

Khlong Ong Ang Canal in Bangkok’s Phra Nakhon district has won the 2020 Asian Townscape Award for Landscape Improvement Project.

Bangkok Governor Pol General Aswin Kwanmuang posted a photo of the certificate on his Facebook page on Friday. The award organiser, UN-Habitat Fukuoka, has selected Khlong Ong Ang as one of six places in Asia that demonstrated outstanding improvement in landscape, art, culture, safety and quality of life of people in surrounding communities.





Other countries that also won the award were Japan, South Korea, China, Nepal and Malaysia.

“I would like to thank every related agency and the public for helping improve Khlong Ong Ang into a beautiful landmark that deserves this international recognition,” said Aswin.

Khlong Ong Ang walking street, which opens daily, features music performances, street art exhibition and a variety of products and street foods from local retailers. Visitors also can enjoy a kayaking trip in the canal and appreciate the city landscape on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 4pm until 10pm. Admission is free.

Klong Ong Ang, a historic waterway once known as Bangkok's dirtiest canal, has discarded its stinky past to become a top visitor attraction in Bangkok. After 5 years of beautification, the canal is now filled with clear water, with both sides decorated with lush plants and modern lightings. Many tourists are attracted to the Ong Ang walking street at the weekend. (Xinhua/Zhang Keren)

Thai AirAsia to fully operate its domestic flights in Thailand by April, under tourism cooperation with TAT

Saturday, 6 March 2021


National –

Thai AirAsia plans to fully revive its domestic flights in Thailand by this April, expecting domestic tourism to be recovered by this March, an airline Chief Executive Officer stated yesterday, March 5th.

Airline CEO Santisuk Klongchaiya told the press that the demand for traveling in the country has been gradually increasing as being observed in their recent flight discount promotions, partly because the relaxation of travel restrictions between provinces had been implemented earlier this year.






The airline aims to be 100 percent operated as soon as April, especially during the Songkran festival. The routes include Don Mueang – Chiang Mai for 7 flights a day; Suvarnabhumi – Chiang Mai for 3 flights a day; Don Mueang – Phuket for 6 flights a day; Don Mueang – Hat Yai for 5 flights a day; Don Mueang – Khon Kaen for 4 flights a day; and Don Mueang – Udon Thani for 3 flights a day.

“We hope to be a part of the country’s economic stimulation during the Covid-19 global pandemic. At the same time, AirAsia also emphasizes health and hygiene measures in its service to take care of all passengers. All service personnel are required to wear protective equipment such as gloves and face masks,” Santisuk told the press.

Additionally. the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has also paired with the airline to promote safe traveling and boost the tourism industry by launching a special activity on Bangkok – Chiang Mai route.






TAT deputy governor Kritsana Kaewthamrong told associated Thai press: “After many Covid-19 restrictions have been relaxed in most parts of Thailand, Thai people are allowed to travel more easily and freely while both major and minor entrepreneurs in the tourism industry are also ready to welcome tourists from all over the country.”

“TAT, therefore, will promote tourism under the new normal policy under the SHA safety standards in order to create a good economic recovery while keeping all tourists safe from the Coronavirus.” The TAT governor concluded.

A beautiful floating bridge at a scenic area in Enshi City, central China’s Hubei province has attracted many tourists. Its eye-catching view creates undulating waves as cars pass the bridge.

Measuring 500 meters long and 4.5 meters wide, the bridge was built along the winding river, twisting and turning through the scenic area, with a passenger volume of 10,000.

Walking or driving on the bridge gives people an amazing sensation that they’re moving on the water surface with lush, green forests around.

Thailand closed for mass tourism until 2021 after vaccinations

Thailand unlikely to reopen doors to mass-market tourism before the end of 2021 until after a full vaccination



The Thai currency has been the subject of international financial players in the last few weeks who are buying up debt and assets wagering that a boost to the kingdom’s economy is on the cards. It may be a bit misplaced. The government’s own projections and vaccine logistics, both in Thailand and worldwide, suggest that the payoff will have to wait until the end of 2021.

The Thai cabinet approved 6 billion on Tuesday for the country’s vaccine programme which is likely to take place in the middle of 2021. However, for foreigners outside Thailand looking forward to a reopening of the kingdom to mass tourism, it is quite unlikely that this is going to happen before the end of next year.




Government spokesman Anucha Burapachaisri, on Tuesday, confirmed that the cabinet had approved over ฿6 billion to buy 26 million doses of the vaccine currently on phase three trials being developed by UK firm AstraZeneca. Thailand plans to manufacture and distribute the vaccine within its borders, a huge undertaking that is likely to take place in the latter half of 2021. It is unlikely that the kingdom will reopen to mass-market tourism until the last quarter of next year based on current projections and its current defensive posture widely supported by public opinion.

Thailand, more likely than not, will not reopen to mass tourism early next year or within the first nine months of 2021, if at all. That is the fear of economic experts currently studying the impact of Covid 19 on the world economy and the prospects for a worldwide vaccine bringing an end to the catastrophe.

This week, the Bank of Thailand has had to mobilise after the kingdom’s currency again became a plaything of international financial speculators who believe that an end to the Covid-19 emergency worldwide will jump-start foreign tourism again in Thailand, generating a huge boost to the economy.

An economic analyst with Krung Thai Bank said this: ‘Foreigners have been mainly buying the front-end of the Thai debt curve for exposure to baht gains.’
Kingdom cannot change its defensive posture against the virus even as the huge financial losses mount

In the meantime, the kingdom internally is left struggling with mounting household debt, projected at 90% of GDP this year, and a growing number of hotels that make up the core of Thailand’s tourism infrastructure who are facing an extended calamity.

The problem for the government is that it simply cannot relinquish the stance or defensive posture that it has taken since the end of March this year and which is supported by the bulk of the populace.

The fundamental problem for Thailand is the deepening impact of the closure of its borders to mass tourism. The kingdom has now entered into its high season for the industry, in the past, seen as the jewel in the country’s economic crown, which lasts from the end of November through to the end of March next year.
2 trillion to be lost by the end of March 2021 as 99% of tourists continue to be locked out of Thailand

As things currently stand, Thailand continues to lose over 99% of its foreign visitors who in 2019 generated over ฿2 trillion for the economy. By the end of March, this will, close enough, represent the net income loss to the Thai economy since the emergency was declared.





The problem facing Thailand is a worldwide one.

The solution to the virus threat, that has been accepted by most countries, is a vaccine except that it takes time to implement a programme.

There have been two major vaccine announcements in the past two weeks, one from Pfizer and another from a firm called Moderna, an American biotechnology company based in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Thailand’s vaccination program is taking shape

Under the most optimistic scenario, the US will be vaccinated sometime in July 2021. That is if all things go according to plan.

Thailand has already signed a deal with AstraZeneca for its vaccine which is currently at Phase 3 stage of its vaccine development programme in association with Oxford University.

The cabinet, on Tuesday, confirmed a budget of just over ฿6 billion to purchase 26 million doses from the UK pharmaceutical giant. This was confirmed by government spokesman, Anucha Burapachaisri.
Officials got a good deal for the cost of the vaccine

He explained that the National Vaccine Institute was already ahead in its planning and preparing for Thailand’s vaccination programme against the virus.


Dr N fake Vaccine






Government officials have been successful in reducing the price of each dose from $20 initially quoted to just under $5 or ฿150 per dose.

This will be administered to 13 million Thais as part of the government’s response. Thailand has also been preparing for the production and distribution of the vaccine in the kingdom for months now.

‘The Cabinet has agreed to earmark funds for the purchase of vaccines from AstraZeneca because the Public Health Ministry has signed a memorandum of understanding with it. Thailand’s very own Siam Bioscience company is also preparing to produce vaccines,’ said the government spokesman.
Production and distribution of the vaccine

This is a particularly prescient move given the growing concerns about the Pfizer vaccine which although reported to be 95% effective, is required to be stored at -70 degrees, without which, it loses its effectiveness within 5 days.

The vaccine requires advanced industrial refrigeration and factories at all points in the chain of distribution, which would be extremely challenging for hot countries such as Thailand and others in Southeast Asia

The Moderna product, in contrast, can be stored in normal refrigerators and is potent for 30 days afterwards.

Thailand is planning to manufacture the kingdom’s vaccine within the country and organise its distribution throughout the public health system.
Most optimistic scenario for foreign fans of Thailand is a late 2021 reopening to mass tourism

However, even if all goes to plan, it will be well into the end of 2021 before this programme becomes effective while other countries are also administering their own national vaccines.

It is unlikely that Thailand will consider reopening its borders to the Covid-19 threat or indeed eliminating its mandatory 14 day quarantine programme before these operations are completed.

The 700 or so positive tests for Covid 19 within the quarantine system in recent months shows the danger of what can happen even with the current trickle of foreigners currently entering Thailand.

This means that it will be the latter half or even the last quarter of 2021 before Thailand can even contemplate reopening to mass tourism as we knew it before Covid-19.

Since then, government responses to the threat, have altered the world to the ‘new normal’ which especially limits air travel and may be with us for some time yet.
Thailand is only projecting 9 million visitors in 2021 or 23% of the kingdom’s record year in 2019

Even this could be optimistic, given the propensity for government-run programmes and initiatives to run into difficulties and the entirely unpredictable nature of this pandemic.

A look at Thailand’s economic projections from the Ministry of Finance to the Bank of Thailand and other economic bodies also confirms this.

Currently, the Thai government is only projecting 9 million visitors in its projection for the coming year which it has combined with more robust investment, government stimulus and a resurgence in exports while predicting the kingdom’s economy to move forward by over 3.5% in 2021 and possibly up to 4.5%.

The projected number of visitors is 23% of the record number achieved in 2019 and could correspond to a boost in tourism in the last quarter of next year, usually a busy time, if mass tourism is suddenly reopened with an initially sluggish response compared to the pre-Covid era.

Tests wrong



Rapid Testing Is Less Accurate Than the Government Wants to Admit


Rapid antigen testing is a mess. 
The federal government pushed it out without a plan, and then spent weeks denying problems with false positives.

 

in simple terms - 

the test decide is scaled up (zoom factor) to around 35% which detects almost anything including bacteria of flu

most all credible medical experts state the max scale up (zoom) should be 20% to 25% but thereafter its a false reading

the results: 

incredible amount of people showing positive (for most anything) 
the test does not confirm covid-19 only a contagion 

anyone that dies with a positive test is deemed covid death - which is fake

its not different than saying anyone that dies with alcohol in the blood regardless of the death is deemed alcohol death even if they have not had a drink of alcohol for a week

inspite of that fact that anyone that dies of anything but has a positive test for any contagion is a covid death. the covid death rate is only 1% and most other known expect death rates (flu and so on are much lower)

you are more likely to die of fear and stress than covid 










Simple question: If mask mandates significantly reduce the spread, then why are there such massive case spikes even in nations (and US states) that have long had mask requirements?


full report Masks fail to filter virus







COVID TESTING FRAUD UNCOVERED

As cases of coronavirus rise across America, shouldn’t death rates be going up too? Del breaks down how #COVID tests may be seriously flawed by providing less than accurate results and why the majority of positive cases could be false.

Spa, Massage Parlors May Double as Quarantine for Foreign Tourists



A scene depicting a massage parlor in TV drama "Nang Ngam Tuu Kra Jok."

BANGKOK (Xinhua) — Thailand planned to provide the so-called wellness quarantine for foreign visitors under the anti-pandemic measures at hotels alongside massage and spa parlors, confirmed a senior government official on Tuesday.

Health Service Support Department Director General Tares Krassanairawiwong said foreign tourists will be provided the 14-day wellness quarantine at the hotels where they will stay and concurrently visit massage and spa parlors in their neighborhood.

Nevertheless, all foreigners visiting the massage and spa parlors will be strictly separated from Thai customers under social distancing and anti-pandemic measures, the director general said.

That will be part of the government’s Medical and Wellness Program for foreign tourists, who will be obliged to carry a health insurance package upon arrival to Thailand, Tares said.

Many foreign tourists are expected to use the massage and spa services, such as those in southern coastal provinces of Thailand, and may be given a Special Tourist Visa for a long stay allowing a maximum of nine-month stay in this country, he said.

However, the government-run Center for the COVID-19 Situation Administration and the cabinet of ministers are yet to approve the Wellness Quarantine plan for foreigners.
Boy Infected While Traveling From Myanmar

A two-year-old Myanmar boy, who has tested positive for COVID-19 in Myanmar, was believed to have contracted the disease while traveling from Thailand to Myanmar earlier this month, according to an official report released on Sunday.

The report from the Disease Control Department of Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health said the Myanmar boy was likely infected with the virus during the time when he was taken across the Thai-Myanmar border by his parents through a natural path in Mae Sot district of Tak province in western Thailand.

His parents managed to slip out of the Thai border area with apparent intent to evade anti-pandemic measures at Mae Sot border checkpoint.

The toddler was suspected to have contracted COVID-19 between Sept. 4 and Sept. 10 after his parents had quit jobs in Ayutthaya province last month, according to the department’s report.

The reports said the boy was not suspected to have been infected while living in Thailand since a total of 146 people, reported to have been in contact with him at migrant workers camps in Ayutthaya province and those in Nakhon Ratchasima province, have tested negative.

Another 2,635 people in Mae Sot district, including Myanmar migrants, have also tested negative.

Ducks clean pests from rice paddies in Thailand, and get a free feed in return

Ducks clean pests from rice paddies in Thailand, and get a free feed in return


Space to play or pause, M to mute, left and right arrows to seek, up and down arrows for volume.







Thousands of ducks flock to rice paddies in Thailand to clean them of pests.


Thousands of ducks have been set loose in rice paddies in Thailand for a regular clean-up that benefits rice and duck farmers alike.

Drone footage captured the event in Nakhon Pathom, about an hour west of Bangkok, where 10,000 ducks stormed the flooded fields to devour pests such as snails hiding in the freshly harvested rice stubble.

The release of the Khaki Campbell ducks, a British breed, is part of "ped lai thoong" — a long-standing tradition in the region.

The deal rids the farms of pests — such as cherry snails, apple snails, weeds and other small pests — while providing a rich source of nutrients for the water birds.

From just 20 days old, the ducks roam the region's paddies for about five months before being mustered back to the duck farm to produce eggs for up to three years.

"The benefit (for the breeder) is that we reduce costs to feed the ducks," said Apiwat Chalermklin, 34, a breeder who took over the business from his father.

"And in return, for the rice farmers the ducks help eat pests from the farm and the farmers can reduce the use of chemicals and pesticides."
Ducks make fields easier to plough

Mr Apiwat has four flocks of ducks that move around different rice fields in the province where farmers typically cultivate three rice crops every year.

The ducks can clean a 70-hectare farm in about a week.

"They help eat golden apple snails and the remains of unwanted rice husks that remain in the field from the last harvest," rice farmer Prang Sipipat said.

"The ducks also step on the rice stubble to flatten the ground and that makes it easier to plough."

Thailand is the world's second-biggest rice exporter and has been facing a prolonged drought.

Thailand managed 101 days without local coronavirus cases. Will it open borders soon?


(CNN) — Just a day after marking the significant milestone of 100 days without local coronavirus transmission, the virus has reared its head once again in Thailand.

News of a fresh infection came as the Thai government faces growing pressure from businesses to reopen borders to international tourists, as months of travel restrictions have devastated its heavily tourism-dependent economy.
The latest case was revealed to be a 37-year-old man who was arrested in Bangkok on drugs charges and tested positive after arriving at a Bangkok correctional center. Health officials say that he had no recent travel history and that his quarantine cellmates had all tested negative.

"This case is a local transmission case after over 100 days were passed with no report of locally transmitted infection," Dr. Suwannachai Wattanayincharoen, director of Thailand's Disease Control Department, told a press conference on Thursday.

Until the announcement, the Southeast Asian country has not recorded any local infections since late May. It is still finding coronavirus cases in overseas arrivals, who are subjected to a mandatory 14-day quarantine period. Patients remain in quarantine until they've recovered.

So far, the country of 70 million people has a caseload of just 3,427, with 58 deaths. More than 28% of the reported infections are overseas cases, according to the Health Ministry.

Thailand was the first country to detect the coronavirus outside China, confirming its first case on January 13 -- a Chinese tourist who had flown to Bangkok from Wuhan.


People donning facemasks walk along Khao San Road, a popular area for tourists in Bangkok, Thailand on March 6, 2020.


The country had first refrained from banning Chinese tourists, but in late March, when its caseload surged close to 1,000, the Thai government declared a state of emergency and banned all non-resident foreigners from entering.
The border closure has helped protect the country while the virus rages across the world, but it has also dealt a huge blow to its tourist sector, which according to the World Bank normally contributes close to 15% of Thailand's GDP.
In June, the Tourism Council of Thailand said it expected to see an estimated 8 million foreign tourists this year, an 80% drop from last year's record number of 39.8 million.

Thailand's economy shrank 12.2% in the second quarter of this year, its worst in 22 years since the Asian financial crisis in 1998.

"We hope that we can find ways to bring back tourists in the future. Bringing tourists back is one of the key factors to revive the Thai economy in the remaining part of this year and next year as well," said Don Nakornthab, Senior Director of Economic and Policy Department at the Bank of Thailand.

"But we have to do it carefully, because if the second wave happens, especially as a result from opening up for tourists, it will put Thailand into trouble again," he said at a press conference Monday.

"Safe and Sealed"

Thailand's Minister of Tourism Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn said late last month the country is aiming to allow foreign tourists to enter the country through a program dubbed "Safe and Sealed."
"I have asked the prime minister for approval to set October 1 as the date to allow (inbound) tourists to enter," he said. "I also have requested to use Phuket as a pilot model ... and have received approval from the Center for Economic Situation Administration."

If successful, the project will be expanded to include other destinations.
In the beginning, tourists will be permitted to fly into Phuket -- Thailand's largest island -- and will need to quarantine in a designated resort for 14 days.

Phiphat cited popular Patong Beach as an example of an area where this could work. Special one-kilometer zones consisting of three-to-four resorts could be set up there, allowing quarantined tourists to spend time on the beach -- so long as they stay in their designated area.
Travelers will need to get tested for Covid-19 at the beginning and end of their quarantine period. Then, they will be free to travel on the island.

But the minister says tourists who wish to travel beyond Phuket will have to stay in quarantine for an additional seven days and will have a third Covid-19 test at the end of that 21-day quarantine period.
Hotel staff who work in these designated zones will not be permitted to leave without first going into quarantine and will be tested regularly for Covid-19 as well to prevent the spread of the virus.

Yuthasak Supasorn, governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand, told CNN Travel last month the plan had been approved by the government and the next step involves holding a public hearing to get approval from local residents -- which is expected to take place in early September.
As October draws closer, however, Yuthasak said on Thursday that Phuket might not be able to receive tourists on October 1 as planned.

"There is still a lot to be done. The prime minister has just said that we have to make preparations," he said.
Vichit Prakobgosol, president of the Association of Thai Travel Agents, said most members of the association strongly support the program and hope to see tourists returning to Thailand in the last quarter of the year.
"This must be done urgently, (otherwise) Thailand will really be in deep trouble. There will be even more people losing their jobs," he said.

Balancing risks
While the tourism and hospitality sectors are keen to reopen borders, many Thai residents remain concerned about the potential health risk.

According to a poll conducted by the National Institute of Development Administration in July, over 55% of the 1,251 people surveyed across Thailand were against a proposed "medical and wellness" program, which would open the country to foreigners who test negative for Covid-19 for medical treatment.
Thais don't need to look far for a cautionary example of how easily the virus can resurface in countries where it has seemingly been eliminated.

Vietnam, another tourist hotspot in Southeast Asia, also had a 100-day streak of no local transmitted infections -- and a proud record of zero coronavirus deaths. But that ended in late July, when a fresh outbreak emerged in its popular resort city of Danang. Since then, Vietnam has recorded 34 coronavirus deaths.

Further away in the Pacific, New Zealand had gone without any local transmitted cases for 102 days, before a new outbreak last month placed its most populous city Auckland under lockdown.
In June, Thailand proposed the idea of a "travel bubble" with select countries where infection numbers were kept low. The plan would have allowed travelers to move between those destinations without having to go through quarantine.
However, the proposal was shelved after new waves of infections hit multiple potential destinations under Thailand's consideration, including Japan, South Korea and Hong Kong.

Yuthasak told CNN on Thursday that the plan hasn't been revived. "We are not looking at that option for now," he said.
