While Thailand’s Test & Go entry system is suspended, foreign tourists can only enter the kingdom through alternative quarantine or the Phuket sandbox scheme. Now, tourism operators in other parts of the country are urging the government to include their provinces in the sandbox programme. Thanet Supornsahasrungsi from the Chon Buri Tourism Council says destinations that are within a 2-hour drive of Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi airport should be included, given that the airport has welcomed the most arrivals since November. “The suspension of the ‘Test & Go’ scheme is expected to last for 2 weeks at the moment, but foreign tourists […]

Samui could easily be included, as Phuket it's an island and easy to lockdown. Tourists can come but have to stay on the island. No problem, just have to manage correctly the transfer at the airport of departure.

Just keep CM out of it until next year. The locals and domestic folk travelling and too clesly mingling are doing a fine job of spreading covid around, and yes CM has already been put on the map for (c)om(m)i(e)cron weeks ago. The booster statement is also weak at best. Many are getting a 3rd because of being fooled to take 2 sinocrap, or the AZ mixed in with it, and is there really any concrete evidence that it can be called a legit booster in this situation as for what  they have taken is inferior to begin with? We know Pfizer + Pfizer + Booster = OK. We know Moderna + Moderna + Booster = OK. But now Moderna has come out and said that the booster at 50% or 50mcg adds 37 fold higher levels than preboost jabs and 100mcg at 83 fold higher.Now this is their findings, but this is also judged on M + M + M and not mixing with non mrna.

So getting back to CM, there are still a lot of folk who do not have the first or 2nd jab yet as many still wait for Moderna to show up. So, it is just plain silly with too many variables going on and (c)om(m)i(e)cron already here. They really should just shut down all NY holiday travel as tourism, or if not that at least any NY festivals or count downs. Now that would be the smart thing to do.

This is incorrect. Central government doesn't view an AZ third dose to those who had Sinovac as a booster. It was said so today by the ministry. So no, phuket is not way ahead of the rest when it comes to boosters.
