"...the Thailand Pass programme (sic) has been suspended since December 22..."

WRONG! I just, 3 days ago, applied on behalf of a friend. Accepted, and QR code received within 24 hours.

There was a grace period extended for many....of the last couple weeks. 

The so call review is scheduled for tomorrow. In theory, they make a decision as to what program they're going with.

But wasn't that just for the "Test and Go" scheme?

Thailand Pass is the only route available now, as far as I know, due to it superseding the old COE pass. In any case, Thai Immigration issued her the QR code after my applying for her.

She'll be spending 10 days in quarantine at an ASQ hotel.

I wish reporting on here was accurate- only the test and go scheme is stopped, Thailand pass can still be applied for if you want to be forced to go to Phuket and other horrid islands, or 7 day AQ solitary in Bkk or 10 days for the selfish unvaxxed etc up to you. Personally i'd rather spend 2 weeks in a hotel room than ever having to visit Phuket ever again.
