Yep...that's what you do when you want to keep a sandbox going. Invite tourists from countries with high levels of Covid.

It's blown up in their face and apparently they're masochists asking for more punishment.

Oops, the Covid risk and punishment is for others, so apparently that's okay as long as some money comes in.

Amazing Thailand?

I believe today, Malaysia is one of, if not the highest, infection/death rate country from Covid19 in South East Asia. 

Come on in, don't worry. This is what you do to keep the Sandbox going.

Talk about flogging  a dead horse!

But if the didn’t drivel as much as they did, Thai media would struggle to put up a required articles to keep themselves in business. Also we wouldn’t have as much as we have to laugh at as well.
