Invasion of the Super Spreaders!

Recommended Posts

The approval of the Sputnik vaccine for international travellers opens the doors of Thailand not just to Russian travellers, but for millions of travellers around the world in countries that have imported or produced the vaccine. Data is conflicting, but about 50 countries have or plan to have the vaccine, with India and South Korea both contracted to produce well over 1 billion vaccines.

Countries like Vietnam, Turkey, Mexico, Argentina have all ordered the Russian Sputnik vaccines, and India, one of Thailand’s fastest-growing tourist demographics before the pandemic, ordered 250 million doses, meaning this new approval could allow millions more tourists to enter.

The TAT says they expect the first chartered flights from Russia will be in October, and the TAT plans to work with commercial airlines to get international flights into Phuket scheduled to facilitate Russian travellers coming to the Sandbox and into Thailand.

Plans are also in place for new Sandbox regions like the islands of Koh Lan, Koh Chang, and Koh Kut in Chon Buri and Trat, that could be accessed via U-Tapao Airport in Rayong, as well as international travel bubbles will also be negotiated with nearby countries like Vietnam, Hong Kong, Singapore, and South Korea.

The TAT will also work with Bangkok Airways to reinstate flights from Phuket to Samui as the 7+7 scheme was approved by the CCSA to allow international travellers to stay just 7 days in Phuket before travelling to a handful of approved destinations in Phang Nga, Krabi, and Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, and Koh Tao.

So... they approved Sputnik.  What's the sensationalism with the use of the term, Super Spreaders?

A legitimate question.  You've copied a news story which doesn't have a even a hint of superspreaders.

Vaccinated people can still contract and spread the virus , so its likely that tourists will spread the virus in Thailand

Because they are bringing much needed money into Thailand through tourism, which makes them super people

Simple logic.  A protected person (vaccinated) can spread to an unprotected person (unvaccinated).  There should be zero tourism until the population is vaccinated. This would be best for the Thai people.  New Zealand recently locked down over a single case of Delta; Thailand is considering opening more. We’ll see what happens.

Although even vaccinated people can still contract the virus and get sick and even die .

A vaccination just means its less likely that you will die from the virus

Valid comment, for sure . . . I had my 1st jab this morning!  And your debut post, too . . . thanks for that!

Would be much easier on the world's population if we absolutely removed all political notions and strategies from anything COVID.
