Absolutely, good call, do not open up the entertainment venues or nightlife or else there will be another 4th wave coming up and another surge of COVID-19 virus then will be shut down again forever. From what I read before, almost 80% of all the bars/ gogo clubs will not open & closed forever. Also, those 20% will have at least 10 times more expensive when they open so they can recover from their losses since the pandemic began last March 2020. I don't think it will be an issue when it comes to reopening because all the entertainment/nightlife venues are being closed. So, I am telling all the farangs are coming to Pattaya & if you know have a lady who works in a bar or gogo bar, you will not be seeing them anymore & possibility they have a good decent job in Isaan.
No rich or other foreigners are going to apply for this ridiculous Idea while the country is under the rules of a military government nor are they going to invest for the same reason, the country has been in the media for a long time and is considered unstable by foreigners and investors. First get rid of the military rulers then things may change for the better for everyone.
I don’t think they need to worry about foreigners turning up and spreading this around. It’s the hundreds of thousands of local people who will be moving about spreading it. This is a virus which is now fully out of control and deep within the local population. The few hundred a day who may turn up from outside of Thailand fully vaccinated isn’t the problem. They may as well open to foreigners, it won’t make any impact on what they are dealing with locally. The countries from where these people departed from just need to make sure they are either not allowed back, or require proper hotel quarantine. It’s what the U.K. red list means and other countries need to protect themselves from travellers to Thailand.
