While many seem excited with the plan to reopen the country to vaccinated travellers on November 1, apparently the majority of Thais are concerned with how the Covid-19 situation will be with an influx of visitors from overseas.
Thailand’s Department of Health conducted a survey from October 14 to 20 and found that 94% of participants are concerned with how the Covid-19 situation will be after the reopening, although the department did not report how many people took part in the survey.
The department also reported that…
- 72% of participants believe that Covid-19 prevention measures should be tightened and vaccinations should be accelerated to make sure each province reaches herd immunity.
- 60% of participants say border patrol should be tightened to prevent illegal entry where people evade Covid-19 screening and quarantine.
- 55% of participants say they support strict monitoring of Covid-19 preventative measures.
- 28% of participants say they are confident in the disease control measures.
