Planning To Visit Thailand Soon? Think Again…

So You’ve Been Vaccinated Against The Virus And You Plan To Be First In Line To Get The Vaccine Passport.

You Feel Super Excited At The Thought Of Getting Back To The Land Of Smiles.

You’ve Ticked All The Boxes And Jumped Through The Various Hoops And You’re Sure That You’re ‘Good To Go’

Thailand’s Disease Control Department Director, And man whose name is super easy to pronounce, Dr. Opas Karnkawinpong,

Has Indicated That The Country’s Public Health Officials Have Absolutely No Intention, As Of Now,

In Making It Easier For Those Vaccinated Against The Covid-19 Virus To Enter The Kingdom.

Bummer huh?

However, The Good Doctor Did Suggest That The Matter Would Be Kept Under Review By Authorities.

But don’t hold your breath.

Dr. Karnkawinpong Said It’s Still Way Too Early To Tell Whether An

Inoculated Person Could Still Be A Transmitter Of The Infection Or Not.

He Then Made The Profound Statement That,

“This Is Something That The Thai Government Will Consider When There Is More Scientific Clarity On The Matter.”

In the Meantime, 2-Weeks Quarantine Is Set to Remain An Absolute Non Negotiable Entry Requirement For Anyone Travelling To Thailand

The Strict 14-Day Quarantine System Which Is Now Said to Be

‘Working Effectively’ Within The Commercial Alternative Quarantine Scheme is Run By The Ministry Of Public Health.

In Association With A Network Of Luxury Hotels Throughout The Country.

Because As Everyone Knows, Only A Luxury Hotel Is Suitable for a 2-Week Quarantine.

In the Meantime, Thailand Is Thought To Be On The Precipice Of Another National Lockdown,

As Infections Are Said To Be Spreading Throughout The Kingdom,

With The Number Of Provinces Where Local Cases Are Being Reported, Expanding Rapidly.
On Wednesday, It Was Announced That All Non-Essential Businesses In Pattaya Were Being Shuttered,

And Local Authorities In Red Zoned Provinces Are Currently Reviewing The Data, Particularly In Bangkok,

Where Some Measures Have Already Been Ordered By The Bangkok Metropolitan Authority.
Vaccinations Are Already Underway In Many Western Nations.

But Just Because You’ve Been Vaccinated, Doesn’t Mean You Can Bypass The Mandatory 2-Week Stay In A Luxury Hotel of the Governments Choice.
The News Comes As Thailand’s Planned Vaccination Of Its Population Is Scheduled For The Second Half Of The Year,

While Vaccination Programmes Are Already Underway In The United States, Europe And The United Kingdom.
It Should Be Noted That The Three Vaccines Currently Being Used In These Countries Are The Pfizer, Moderna And Astrazeneca,

Astrazeneca Just Getting Its Nod of Approval On Tuesday last.

These Have A 95% Efficacy Rate According To The Latest Studies.

And I’m Sorry, But At The Time Of Recording This Video, I Couldn’t Find Data On The Latest Studies.

Anyway, I digress…

This Means That Someone Who Has been Inoculated Has A 95% Chance Of Avoiding Infection.

Sounds Pretty Good Right?

But…What Isn’t Known Is Whether Someone Can Then Come Into Contact With The Virus,

And While Not Being Infected From It, Themselves, Still Transmit The Virus To Another Person?

And This is Why as Dr. Karnkawinpong, put it,
“This Is Something That The Thai Government Will Consider When There Is More Scientific Clarity On The Matter.”

In Other Words, We Don’t Know Yet Because We Need a Lot More Data.
So For Now At Least It Appears That Even If You Are Vaccinated, You Still Won’t Be Able to Travel to Thailand [and I Expect Anywhere Else in the Region].

And Before You Start Losing Your Cool, Remember the Word of the Good Doctor…

“This Is Something That The Thai Government Will Consider When There Is More Scientific Clarity On The Matter.”

As to When That Scientific Clarity Will Be Available, Your Guess is As Good As Mine.

The Doctor Failed to Elaborate on That.

And spare Thought for the poor bloke, he can’t tell you what he doesn’t know.

So for now at least, don’t get your hopes up.

We might have some fair amount of time to go, before places like Thailand and The Philippines are Finally ‘Open for Business and Travel’ Again…

Like Tens Of Thousands Of You, I Hope With All My Heart That Will Be Sooner, Rather Than Later… .
