Just for informational purposes; Thai's do have to have a Covid test before travel like the rest of us.. You can see on the COE request form on the embassy website... I keep seeing posts that say they don't, but that is not correct...

How much are idiots paying to sit next them on a long flight?

NZ has had to limit bookings on flights for the people returning to NZ as the quarantine facilities are overloading. 

They brought 400 Russian fishing crew in this week and now 11 testing positive. Others returning from India, USA, and many other countries are turning up positive covid tests after a few days in quarantine. 

This sounds similar to what is happening in Thailand. 

 

This tells us that all the talk about shortening quarantine to 10 days is nonsense and that 11 million Chinese tourists coming in soon is a very ambitious dream, unless they are all vaccinated with an approved Chinese vaccine that is working

Gives a figure of  about 2.4% dead  then.
