It could serve as a model for other popular holiday regions in the Southeast Asian country, quoted the newspaper “Bangkok Post” as quoting Vice Prime Minister Supattanapong Punmeechaow.
Contact tracking remains
Previously, the authorities and the private sector of the island had presented a detailed plan for reopening. The prerequisite, however, is that 70 percent of the local population have been vaccinated against the coronavirus by July in order to achieve herd immunity, it said. For tourists, a vaccination pass would be sufficient to enter the country, in which the corona vaccination is recorded.
However, travelers should still do a PCR test on arrival at the airport and download an app for contact tracking on Phuket. A little later, other vacation areas such as Pattaya, Chiang Mai and Krabi could follow the model, wrote the newspaper “The Nation Thailand”.
