Prayut coming to Phuket as July 1 reopening assured


Recommended Posts

I wonder what type of vaccine the PM got, surely NOT the dreaded , my guess is on the coveted Pfizer, also, he's being giving the shot in the wrong part of the arm, way too low, should be placed further up near the shoulder's deltoid muscle...

Reading the full article it does seem doable the island will achieve vaccination by the 1st of July which is only around the corner so how about releasing the 7 day extortion packages?

His vax date was delayed until the AZ one was available. Excuse - he is over 60

Actually should have been a lot lower...between the cheeks.

I haven't spoken to any Thai Phuketian who has refused to get vaccinated...I only hear such talk among anti-social foreign elements of the population; which also explains the massive death toll in many Western countries. 

Agree with the general gist of your post, but do know a few who are refusing, mostly due to medical reasons though.

Tell them to hurry up and get on with it.

I can see Phuket turning into a massive prison colony when the residents refuse to accept the Chinese sinovac vaccine and are threatened with jail

 

They better think again and come up with another plan

Yep. Much easier to do that in Phuket than even Buri Ram. For starters, Phuket is much smaller, home to a smaller population and has only one entrance point by land. With Buri Ram, fleeing to another province or even Cambodia is easy.

You mean like an Australia 2?

 

Maybe that is why there are so many Australians living on Phuket

Right now there are far more freedoms in Australia, even under Covid, than in Phuket. So Phuket has replaced Australia as the prison colony. 

 

For one, face masks are generally NOT required anywhere. When they have been mandated, such rules were limited to one or more capital cities at a time and only for a few days. Generally never required outdoors, except last year in greater Melbourne.

If so why haven't they released the small print? For sure it's not open to backpackers renting 500 baht a night rooms and 7/11 cuisine.

 

Tourists like to plan in advance, cheaper airfares for starters. Wake me up and when they publish the astronomical fees they are keeping a secret.

TAT announced 150K to 200K for 7 day package deals but no more details on whether there will be any other options. I doubt there will be other options at the start, if it starts, and I'm guessing you will spend the 7 days in your resort. This will be the initial target

"Anti-social elements". LOL. No, the difference is Thais are sheep and don't ask questions. They'll fall off a climb if the government tells them to. Westerners, we value our freedoms more.

 

That stated, there are plenty of Thais questioning vaccination, particularly this one.

The last poll I saw (albeit a few months ago) indicated that over 40% of Thais living in Phuket stated that they would not take the vaccine.  Hopefully this has since changed as it would very difficult to attain a 70% vaccination rate if over 40% decline.

Maybe some of the other 60% who need to earn a living will persuade them.
