Possibly due to the Chinese being let back in  starting in Phuket ?

BANGKOK: Thailand will receive its first foreign vacationers when a flight from China arrives next week, marking the gradual restart of a vital tourism sector battered by coronavirus travel curbs, a senior official said on Tuesday (Sep 29).

The first flight will have about 120 tourists from Guangzhou, flying directly to the resort island of Phuket, Tourism Authority of Thailand governor Yuthasak Supasorn told Reuters.

It' the sort of stupid thing that certain provincial Governors would do. Let's wait and see. I for one don't want to be stuck on Phuket for the sake of 130 Chinese tourists!

It might be part of the "test run" and not continue for more than a month or three. But it could happen.

Last minute decisions always follow protracted mulling and pondering in LOS so be prepared!

There are many things written, not much of them true.

Governors could do this, but to me it sounds like conclusions out of ignorance.

I think your wife misunderstood but I do believe it would possibly be pertaining to the possible arrival of international tourists (Chinese) and their process in arriving in Thailand and then onward journey.

 

Again I think  she may of misunderstood or the wording is off.
