News update: Coronavirus Situation in Thailand


Coronavirus has affected different people in different ways. Lockdowns, closed borders, and even long quarantine days are just the outcome of this pandemic. Coronavirus has us frozen in place for the most part and made us dream of when we can start booking travel again. But worry not, because Thailand’s tourism has started to ease up its lockdown measures.

Thailand’s Center for covid-19 Situation Administration or the CCSA has curbed the infections in limited areas. CCSA also visits other areas for proactive inspections to reduce infections as much as possible.

In the past few days, the number of infected cases in Thailand has decreased. Even though the lockdown measures have been curbed, safety measurements will still be implemented at hotels, airports, and other accommodations.

Want to experience the “Golf Quarantine”? Thailand has it. Some establishments such as fitness centers and department stores are now open. Restaurants, pubs, and bars? These places are also open up to 11pm. Not only that, did you know that last February 24, 2021, Thailand receives 1st batch of COVID-19 vaccines from China's Sinovac? Around 200,000 doses of 2019 novel coronavirus vaccines were received by the Thailand government. The Ministry of Health expects that about 50% of Thailand’s population will be vaccinated within the month of May or June.
