PHUKET: Phuket Vice Governor Phichet Panapong has called for officials to maintain high levels of screening of all arrivals on the island in order to protect what’s left of the island’s devastated tourism industry.

 

Speaking at Phuket Provincial Hall yesterday, Vice Governor Phichet noted that Phuket has suffered a ”huge impact” from the COVID19 situation, notably the economic crisis that has ensued.

 

“It is now found that Phuket Province has had a huge impact from the second wave of the coronavirus outbreak, but after the CCSA [Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration] began to relax the measures [to prevent further spread of the virus], the Phuket Provincial Government eased the restrictions to enter Phuket, and this is helping to stimulate tourism and the province’s economy,” he said.

'relax the measures [to prevent further spread of the virus]'

Am I reading this wrong? Has it been reported unclearly, or are the authorities not talking sense?

They must mean "relax the measures [previously put in place to prevent further spread of the virus]", but it's written very badly.
