Thailand has become a hot transit choice for Chinese travelers going abroad amid the #COVID-19 outbreak as multiple countries and regions have issued different kinds of entrance restrictions for visitors from China.

Experts said that Thailand may benefit from the "entrance restriction" phase despite the overall hit to the country's tourism sector from a decline in Chinese visitors.

"Many of my Chinese classmates have chosen to transfer from a third country," said Cindy, a Chinese student in the University of Melbourne in Australia.

 

According to information from China's National Immigration Administration on Sunday, all travelers from or transferring from the Chinese mainland are now not permitted to enter Australia within 14 days of their exit from the Chinese mainland, except Australian citizens, permanent residents and their direct relatives. Those exempt individuals are required to undergo a 14-day quarantine after landing in the country.

Should I give up breathing for Songkran?

Having said that, a Chinese nurse apparently contracted it through her eyes according to a report I saw a couple of weeks back.

Perhaps I need to a three wise monkeys impression too?

was that the sourced material for the Thread;

Absolutely classic Thai mentality, get the tourism numbers up today without the slightest regard about tomorrow.

Oh give them a break! They have spirit men and fortune tellers for that!
