PHUKET: Phuket Governor Phakaphong Tavitpatana has issued an order for all subdistricts on the island to come under “lockdown”, with no non-essential travel beyond subdistrict borders permitted, starting next Monday (Apr 13), Songkran Day.

 

The lockdown will be in effect 24 hours a day, from 00.01am on April 13 to 11:59pm on April 26, a total of 14 days “or until the situation is resolved”, said the order.

 

Six Phuket subdistricts (“tambon” in Thai) – Patong, Karon, Chalong, Rawai, Kathu and Srisoonthorn – are already under lockdown orders, brought into effect over the past week.

It's obviously no matter what he does, especially him, it will not be resolved before a vaccine.

I don't quite understand that martinhp, isn't It suppose to be like a flue strain? (only more deadly) With SARS--MEARS........ we didn't get a vaccine to stop it.

Rawai isn’t currently locked down. I went past Chalong Circle yesterday. Apparently it’s  starting on Monday, the same as the other districts. People who live in one district, but work in another, needed time to make arrangements to be able to survive.the check points are there though, and manned, so ready to go.

 

i also heard, but don’t know from personal experience, that the main road to Kata is blocked. I don’t see anything on the cliff road from Nai Harn though, unless it’s at the Kata end.

That is blocked about 500 meters down from the view point, Rawai end.

They should at least let food trucks like Tops through.  Are they not "essential"?

All food and goods will travel as normal so I'm told as is happening now in the already locked down Tambons.

Also reliably informed going out to get food and essentials is allowed.

Looking at the present lockdown of Kata and the intend behind these lockdowns I very much doubt people will be allowed out unless for real emergencies.

The Kata afternoon/evening market was closed yesterday.  Last week, only stalls selling food stuff only.
