"Stranded foreign tourists" first to brave the sea in Pattaya - no deckchairs in sight, few on the beach

PPTV 36 reported that stranded foreign tourists were the first people to go for a swim in Pattaya after the beaches were opened in Chonburi for the first time in more than a month. 

 

There were few people on the beach, they said and no deckchair operators were in evidence. It was a lukewarm first day since lockdown. 

 

They interviewed the mayor of the resort Sontaya Khunpluem who said that no vendors had applied to set up business just yet. 

 

They would have to employ social distancing measures and other new regulations; he expressed satisfaction that the beach was clear and looking good.

No mention was made in the PPTV report about the online pictures of filthy black water gushing into the sea near a Walking Street area pumping station a few days ago. 

 

Sontaya mentioned the beach will be closed for three consecutive days each month as part of the new rules.

 

Everyone is required to wear masks on the sands though they can take them off for swimming. 

 

Meanwhile a tractor plowed through the sands in the background.

How did they know that they were "stranded tourists" and not expats? Notwithstanding the fact that as most countries have and still are running repatriation flights, there's no need for tourists to be stranded.
