All well and good, but when the “half-informed” start considering holiday destinations, it just adds uncertainty as to what’s open. 

“How about Thailand?”

I may be reading too much in-between the lines of that article (I had to, in order to make some sense out of them), but it seems that islands are made subject to a rotational scheme in which islands are closed for 1-2 months to allow ecologies to recuperate after an invasion of tourists. If so, it's not a bad idea per se, but it feels like applying a hammer where tweezers would do at least as well to achieve some balance.
