Portugal is apparently already letting them in and the rest of Europe won't be far behind. France may be next (starting next month) and the rest of Europe will likely admit Americans if not in July then August. Of course, this is tentative at this stage, but the sources I've been following seem to indicate this.

The world is evolving into two groups: a smaller group that has opted for virus elimination, and a larger group that is giving up and allowing virus transmission with only some minimal controls aimed at moderating the rate of infections. The rules on entering Covid-19 free countries are going to be very different from entry into countries that place little importance on Covid-19 control.

Why is this covid thing being blown out of proportion, it can only be because this is some kind of deliberate reset, whereby the global economic structure is being changed for a different future to the one we've known before. As they say a "new normal".

Well, your argument was holding water, until you got to the "who shot Kennedy, US Gov't involvment in 9/11, etc" conspiracy theories. Nobody is using corvid19 as an excuse to reshape world order. Yes, maybe corvid 19 isn't as deadly as originally supposed -- and reactions have been overly cautious....A bad thing -- maybe. Understandable -- completely.

Looking today at the resurgence in cases in the Americas -- maybe a bubble over a corona free Asia is the way of the future -- as the only spot in the world to vacation corona virus free. Now, that's an advertising ploy to pursue...

Well you are ignorant aren't you? And umm, Kennedy, 911? Please do stay on topic. You're making yourself look rather foolish.

 

Yes they are. International travel may never be the same again; look at all the new requirements to get on a plane they're proposing. https://www.forbes.com/sites/ceciliarodriguez/2020/05/10/future-air-travel-four-hour-process-immunity-passes/#4e3b5d4772da

 

Large multinationals buying up SMEs for cents to the dollar. If you think this will all go away in 6 months as if nothing happened, you'll receive a rude wake up call quite soon.

 

The world will NEVER be the same again and this is proof that something is going on behind the scenes.

I was just at Mae Sai and Chaen Sen (the river crossing for the casino in Laos). I can tell you that Mae Sai was closed up solid. NO ONE WAS THERE. The border crossing for the casino in Laos in the golden triangle is another story. That gate was open and there were two officers there who took a two hour lunch break (I was waiting and saw them carrying food in after two hours). There was also a military officer in the customs section. But when we asked about crossing they stated that no one was being allowed.  My question to them was this: What are all of you doing here?????? You have the AC cranked up at Thai tax payer expensive, no one is there, the boats are all docked, but there is close to a full complement of border officials. My guess would be that this border is not closed (see Mai Sai all boarded up) to VIP's. Thusly, why you need the military (customs) and immigration. Just a guess.

Pretty sure freight is being allowed through the second Mae Sai bridge. Obviously the first one is closed, as it's only for passengers and private vehicles.
