The Northeast province of Loei is considering reopening its border with Laos now that the risk of Covid-19 infections has eased.

 

On Thursday, provincial governor Tawatchai Niamsiri met local officers and public health officials at Loei’s public health office.

 

At the meeting, Dr Preeda Worahan from the public health office said only five Covid-19 patients had been found in the province and the 266 Myanmar migrants currently working there had been tested for the virus.

 

The officials said they aim to reopen the Bannkhokphai checkpoint in Pak Chom district so border trade with Laos can be restarted. This border has been closed since late March due to Covid-19.

 

Officials, however, said the reopening should be done under the supervision of soldiers and police, while the movement of migrants should be strictly monitored.

 

The subject of reopening the border will be studied again next Monday.

You mean at Tha Li? I've crossed there in both directions several times over the years.
