Kanchanaburi: All hotels and resorts closed by provincial governor from now

The governor of Kanchanaburi province in the west of Thailand has ordered all hotels, resorts and related accommodation closed as of yesterday to prevent the spread of Covid-19. 

 

Violators face hefty jail time and/or fines, reported Thai Rath. 

 

Jirakiat Phoomsawat signed the order noting that the province is popular with tourists and that gatherings could facilitate the spread of the virus during the second wave. 

 

The only exemptions are hotels used as local quarantine or by officials on other Covid related matters. 

 

People can be jailed for up to two years for violating the emergency decree and fined 40,000 baht and other legislation can see terms of a year and a fine of 100,000 baht.

This is what is needed in the western civilization, where 90% of the infections and deaths are occurring, to make people follow the rules and stop killing others because of selfishness. 
The softly softly approach has failed.

Why now?  Seems a little late to the party.

I assume the place is dead anyway.

So, maybe he is being thoughtful in a way as I assume the employees will now be eligible for social security income, which is a good thing.

We use Good Times Resort a lot, spoke to them last week, they only had two rooms occupied...The place is normally full at this time. They said that they  were just waiting to be told to close.

I think the proposed tourist entry fee of 300 baht is inadequate, maybe they need to raise it to 3000 baht to cover their total lack of damage control! 🙄

Couldn't he have selected a picture showing a little more empathy rather than, "Yay, closures!" ?

Perhaps a cultural thing, comes over as a little insensitive to our eyes, maybe to a Thai, not so much.

Because it's being done on a "need-to" basis provincially rather than a carpet closure nationwide...

If they close, employees are eligible for unemployment benefits.  Some resorts are doing this to help their employees stay afloat.  Good for them.  No customers anyway.

Of course.

So, what is the current  "need to" that motivated his decision now?

One would imagine a spike in positive infections...

He's smiling because he knows that even if no more tourists come to Thailand he'll still receive his monthly salary!
