    In the absence of widespread vaccination, there is a real need to lockdown in strategic places to stop the spread. The tourist destinations like Phuket must do this now if they hope to attract tourists for july 1 and beyond. Otherwise no one will risk coming there.

    Jason, why would vaccinated tourists worry about Covid risk? That is the whole point of being vaccinated.

    Don’t worry, they’re greasing up those chrome poles as we speak. Let’s hope they train the immigration boys and girls at the airport to spot the wave of fake Covid – Negative docs coming from India , Africa and Russia.

    And…they’ll need girls girls girls. But where will they come from? With the Issan towns and Chiang Mai north and hill tribes a Hot Covid Mess, and Myanmar cross border trade closed…will Bangkokians have to volunteer to lube the Mee Chai who’ll show up July 1st as planned? Prices might have to go up.
