Prime minister asks all parties to contribute to November 1 reopening


BANGKOK (NNT) –  Thailand’s prime minister is asking all parties to pitch in and contribute toward the ‘reopening’ of the country on November 1, and ordered relevant agencies to reserve Molnupiravir drugs for COVID-19 in advance and ensure an adequate supply of Favipiravir.

Prime Minister Gen. Prayut Chan-o-cha attended a general meeting of the Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA), after which he spoke to reporters of efforts to ‘reopen’ Thailand to international tourists on November 1. He elaborated that everybody must still exercise caution over Covid and observe the Ministry of Public Health’s preventative measures.

Gen. Prayut explained that the quarantine requirement for international arrivals is not being lifted for those who arrive via land or water routes. Meanwhile, officials were told to strictly prevent illegal entries and ensure that distancing is observed by people involved in trade along the border. He has also called for incident response plans to be readied by medical personnel and ordered the relevant agencies to reserve the Molnupiravir Covid drug in advance and to procure an adequate supply of Favipiravir.

The prime minister said the announcement of country reopening and earlier quarantine waiver initiatives such as Phuket Sandbox and Samui Plus enabled Thailand to become the first valid destination country for tourists who were planning their New Year’s holidays. He said reopening would create confidence in Thailand and enable it to stave off an economic crisis.
