Thailand’s scenario to reopen the country in 120 days
According to Bangkok Post, Thai Lan intends to reopen the country in the next 120 days from now on to diminish the repercussions of covid-19 pandemic. Sharing during a live TV broadcast, Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha affirms this plan will be a fundamental step for economic recovery despite the risk of a new wave of pandemic hitting the country.
Fully vaccinated visitors are allowed to enter the country without quarantine or restrictions. Based on the real situation, those guidelines will be modified. Businesses are also expected to resume normal operations.
The PM stressed all government organisations and provinces need to accelerate the progress of the national Covid-19 vaccination programme. By October, nearly 50 million people will be vaccinated for the first shot. Currently, 105.5 million Covid-19 vaccine doses have been secured to be delivered this year, and the government continues to seek additional supplies in 2022. The upcoming program “Sandbox” will be implemented in Phuket from July 1. This campaign will set an important milestone in the reopening program.
Along with containing the virus, people also need to adapt and deal with financial catastrophe which is also a priority now. He is also hopeful that Thailand will be able to develop vaccine production capacity.
