Meaning that the Thai tourism industry will continue to be in the crapper and millions who depends on it for their survival will continue to suffer and lose their life's works and investments witch will take years to recover from, way to go PM...

Even if they open the country today, with no restrictions at all - who could come?  

Australia and New Zealand have also discussed plans to resume travel between the two countries, potentially starting from September.

So Aussies and kiwis won't be able to leave Australia and NZ without government approval before then. 

Other countries plan putting similar restrictions in place as well. 

On the other hand, many countries are talking about opening up with conditions such as allowing tourists from only covid 19 clean countries, restricting tourists to some locations only and so on.

Like i said, they had 1600 cases yesterday. That is a stark difference to your claim they had 10,000 - which is false. They have never had anywhere 10,000 infections a day, which is a gross exaggerated lie. 

 

As i said the UK has carried out nearly 5 million tests on the population, with them now ramping up to 200,000 a day. Antibody tests rolling out next week. Thailand meanwhile has only carried out 400,000 tests in total, and zero antibody tests. Both similar populations sizes.

 

The UK rate is also high because of the problems they have had in care homes for the elderly. 

 

That's why no one can really be sure how many people in Thailand actually had the disease. But it's fair to say it's has not succumbed to the pandemic like many European countries. Be it luck, climate, health of the population (namely weight issues), density of the cities they have done well.

But they are planning for Songkran to be held in july? What would happen if massive amounts of (drunk) people would flock together ? Do they expect it will not breakout again?

That is only the Culture Ministry so far. Anywhere else a senior leader would have stamped that out already or the announcement would not have been cleared by the higher office. We wait to see what happens there, clearly lunacy in my opinion.

Are you panicking? A few might get “covid”, a few may get sick for a few days. Such is life...

No, who has 6 days off, 3 days after returning from a 3 month shutdown, mostly without pay

It's not the individual choice. The likelyhood, China will not want returning tourists with infections, hence they will keep a lockdown on mass movement for the time being. They have said as much. 

Sorry I as talking the opposite direction. There's been just under 2000 returnees to China found to be infected (and transmissable) so you have a good point.

So if you leave the UK, considered an unsafe departure point but transit through a so called safe point, can they efficiently monitor that, without having to go through all your travel arrangements. Even so if you stopped over a couple of days somewhere I don't see how they can really pin point your actual original departure point if there is no stamp in your passport as would be the case if you transferred through an EU safe country as it stands right now.
