The number of Covid-19 infections in Chiang Mai rose further on Monday, as the province was set to re-open to vaccinated tourists next month.


Chiang Mai reported 314 new Covid cases Monday, according to the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA), up from the daily number of 191 a week earlier.


The province also saw cases from the Muang Mai Market cluster last week rise from 587 confirmed on Wednesday to a total of 900 by Sunday.

Sure wish we could stop it with all these infection numbers, its deaths that matter.

Obviously a lot is due to vaccines.


But the world need to just get on with life now we have the vaccines, protect any health issues and old people and get the ball rolling. Can't wait any more now for a disease killing specific people that we can protect.

The characterisation of foreigners as virus vectors needs to stop. There have been no cases of infection hotspots in CM caused by foreign visitors, they are all due to Thai infecting Thai. Of course the innate xenophobia in this country was only magnified by Anutin calling farangs dirty! His words will haunt tourism for as long as he is around. But opening to foreign tourism is essential because Thai people are too indebted to undertake more than the minimum of domestic tourism.

No Burmese (or hilltribes) working the markets then?

Or don't you count Burmese as foreigners?
