Govt’s ‘carelessness’ hits Rayong tourism sector badly

The discovery of a visiting Egyptian soldier’s Covid-19 infection has hit Rayong’s tourism sector badly, with people cancelling hotel bookings in Koh Samet.

 

Sarinthip Thapmongkolsap, chair of the Samet Tourism Association, said each and every hotel booking had been cancelled over fears of the virus spreading after the soldier’s infection was announced on Monday (July 13).

She added that business operators on the island, along with officials of the Khao Laemya-Koh Samet National Park, had put in place strict measures to screen and control visitors since the island opened to visitors on July 1.

 

She said many people had visited and booked rooms, until the “government ruined it” with its carelessness in dealing with foreign visitors.

It's starting to stack up against the regime, even Thais are getting fed up of the PM and his incompetent ministers.

What tourism?  That industry was drawn and quartered in April and won't be back this decade.

It's a death sentence NCC1701A. 
Your living on the edge like that kid in A Christmas Story who wanted a Red Rider BB gun.
"You'll shoot your eye out kid!" 

That's ok.  The MSM will pick up your story after your dead.
"NCC1701A looked up at the buxom nurse and with his final smiling breath rattled, 'I shouldn't have gone to Rayong.  I thought the virus was a hoax.'" <gasps, expires>  :wink:

Why such caution with foreign tourists, and such reckless behavior with foreign military and diplomats? Who is responsible?

 

As always Prayuth. He needs to resign immediately. He is reckless.
