what ever they decide the paramount must be the safety and health of locals and tourists, i do not believe the present conditions should allow to reopen what we can call super spreader event or spot. bars and discotheques will allow the virus to spread at high speed. However there is no doubt we will have to live with, going for vacations and come back sick might not be a good option . Logic should be peoples won t travel before a cure does exist or a cure which does limit the covid's effect to a simple flu ....... not sure this will happen.
so reopening mass tourist as it was will be still a high risk, as far as i read , the vaccine is not the whole solution, masks, behaviour and so on ... may remain for quite some times. I not see myself going to pattaya in bar with mask and respecting social distancing lol .... so yes a different kind of tourism may take place, but really i do not believe this new sort of tourism will bring the same amount of devises that the old fashion way did. Hence the number of jobless peoples will increase exponentially with an impact on safety and security .....
so could it be the best way so far is wait for better days before reopening the night life venues which is, and we must be honest about it, if not the heart of thai tourism, a big part of it. In all case it will be hard to re-start the engine and get full power. What i do know is many friends are struggling to survive, hence, covid started to touch their family making things even worse. I feel as Thai peoples start only to be scared of covid. I don t think most of Thai peoples want see a mass of foreigner coming back and make everything worse.
so who really wants to reopen night life venues?????????????????
Yes that’s true @Bob20 However, I’d say that counts even more against them likely to be moved off the red list. Targeted testing will always result in higher positive tests, but little or no random testing means you have no idea what is going on elsewhere. Best keep it red for now…
While for some "stars" I agree with what you say, the exposure can be incredible. Look at Wallace and Gromit. Before the shows were produced, the makers of Wensleydale cheese were at an all-time low, down to 11 employees and the future was bleak.
But since Wallace has a thing for Wensleydale cheese, the company enjoyed incredible success and the cheese became a national favorite in Britain.
It doesn't always work. Cheeto Jesus's penchant for McDonald's doesn't seem to have boosted their fortunes, even if he did offer a visiting (American) football team that fast food, instead of a proper dinner at the White House.
It's amazing how much "influence" pop stars and social media stars wield.
