PHUKET: According to some very divided public opinion, with the July 1 reopening Thailand is about to do something very brave, or something very stupid. Everyone has an opinion on what will happen, the only problem is that no-one knows what will actually happen.

 

Strongly voiced opinions on the issue run the gamut from don’t reopen the island to tourism until everyone living and working in Phuket has been vaccinated lest arrivals import a COVID variant that unleashes another outbreak; to reopen the island now because of the extent of the financial hardship suffered by so many on the island; to don’t bother reopening the island because no one will come.

 

What people believe about any of this is personal choice, but as it stands right now it is likely that at least some of people will be wrong. The worst case scenario is that all of them are right.

I've got a shrewd idea...

Fingers crossed for July 1

 

Wishful thinking??? Another TVF post today:-

 

"Oil spill tar balls wash ashore at Patong, Nai Yang"

 

How many more tar balls are on their way from Sri Lanka's oil tanker disaster??

Isn't it possible  the majority of people do  understand  that the reopening has to start slowly and that there will be a learning curve  with  hiccups but also  improvements along  the way? That makes sense. isn't it also possible that the majority  realizes that testing vaccinated tourists (foreign or domestic) multiple times and tracking them 24/ 7 makes no sense if the same is not being done to the unvaccinated population? testing and tracking only the vaccinated population  makes  sense if the reason behind the tests is to make money from all that testing and also has the added benefit of the government appearing to do something to reassure the local population
