Thai media reported that tourists have been making their way to the holiday island of Koh Chang all week amid news reports that the island is to enter a lock down phase from April 5th, Sunday. 

 

Many believe it will be very difficult if not impossible to enter Koh Chang for a month after Sunday. 

 

A local industry leader Saksit Mungkarn said there were less tourists - both Thai and foreign - crossing to the island yesterday. But there had been many in the preceding 2 to three days. 

 

There are thought to be 10,000 mainly foreign tourists on Koh Chang at the moment.

 

There are 10,000 people on the island to look after them. 

 

There are 8,000 local residents. 

 

Responding to questions that tourists were moving on from Pattaya that is about to be locked down, Saksit claimed that the authorities are ready for that. 

 

After Sunday it could be very difficult to enter the island, said Manager, with a full inquiry done by health officials into where visitors have been in the preceding days.

Stupid people, need to get off an island not get stuck on it

If it's anything like BKK, virtually nothing's open anyway, takes away a lot from the experience of being there.

Why is he not wearing his mask while speaking to another foreigner at less than 1.5 meter distance?
