PHUKET:-- Leading Phuket tourism and hospitality figures have revealed their plan to secure COVID-19 vaccinations independently in the hope of re-opening the island to tourism from Oct 1, as economic experts warn that Phuket people’s incomes are plunging below the national poverty line.

 

The consortium of leading Phuket businesses is already moving to secure COVID vaccinations from private sources, including some 40,000 doses from the Bangkok Hospital group, instead of waiting for the government to roll out its vaccination campaign.

 

The news came at a ‘roundtable’ discussion event held at the Hotel Indigo Phuket Patong on Friday (Jan 29), joined by many key Phuket tourism figures.

Tourism as we know it will never exist again.

it will but not in the next few years.

First govs need to get rid of corona (~1 year), then govs need to recover their economies (2-3 years), so around 2024 we'll have mass tourism again.

We already spent 1 year getting rid of corona yet everywhere I look it is more prevalent than ever, more talked about than ever, more shoved down our throats than ever, lockdowns are getting stricter and stricter, curfews are becoming more and more draconian to the point we have homeless people being hunted down by police for not being inside after curfew resulting in one death as a direct result of the curfew. If you think the situation will be improving any time soon you are highly highly highly optimistic and I wish I could share the same view. Corona is obviously here as part of the new norm this is why they call it the new norm. 1 year to get rid of rona HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA right
