“20,000 foreign businesspeople, Thai work permit holders, and international school students and teachers have registered to return to Thailand.”

Health Minister and deputy PM Anutin Charnvirakul says Thailand’s “travel bubble” scheme will open first to business groups and international-school teachers who can be easily tracked, and not to the world’s tourists. He made the announcement after a meeting with Japanese ambassador Nashida Kazuya. Japan is among the countries deemed at low risk for Covid-19 contagion that are being considered for the “travel bubbles.”

The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration says that some 20,000 foreign businesspeople, Thai work permit holders, and international school students and teachers have registered to return to Thailand.

Meanwhile, Anutin says he’s ready to be injected with a prototype Thai-developed vaccine for Covid-19 as part of medical trials. Several Thai research programs are currently working to create a vaccine for the virus.
