Thailand is among only seven countries and territories categorized in the latest US travel advisory as being at low-risk for COVID-19 infection.

 

Professor Dr. Nop Siriruek Songsivilai, Secretary-General of the National Research Committee, said on Sunday that the inclusion of Thailand in the low risk list is a significant change and welcome news for Thailand.

The only shame is no one really wants to go to Thailand now. Very much a  'Yesterday's' destination..

^Think you'll find that thats a misleading figure.. Bangkok is, like Dubai, a hub for travel on and back..bit like the Thai gov quoting the incredible boom  in the Chinese tourism. First couple of years .. yeah maybe but now the 'trickle down' effect is firmly in the Chinese hands as opposed to the thai. But the industry is still given the financial pladits but in reality the Thai 'shop floor' isn't getting the money. Same with the 'visitor' stats a huge %visiting Thailand on the way to or back from when really it's just a transit change..

That's quite impressive for Thailand since of the other six countries on the list, New Zealand has the biggest population.  So, Thailand is the only large country that is safe, although I wonder why S. Korea, China, and Taiwan are not on the list.
