BANGKOK: Bangkok could be declared a COVID-19 red zone ahead of the Thai water festival next week after new clusters involving pubs and bars caused a sharp increase in infections in the Thai capital.

The Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) reported 334 new COVID-19 cases on Wednesday (Apr 7), which included 216 patients from Bangkok alone.

On the same day, local media reported that transport minister Saksayam Chidchob has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Several cabinet ministers and dozens of lawmakers were also in self-isolation after coming into contact with patients of COVID-19. They include health minister Anutin Charnvirakul, education minister Treenuch Thienthong and deputy prime minister Wisanu Kreungam.

Several new clusters have been found in Bangkok’s pubs and bars, particularly in Wattana district. Between Mar 22 and Apr 6, CCSA reported 257 COVID-19 infections from this area, which houses a number of entertainment venues frequented by partygoers and musicians.

Besides Bangkok, more COVID-19 infections were also reported at entertainment venues in surrounding provinces such as Chonburi, Samut Prakarn, Suphan Buri and Nonthaburi.

Given the approaching water festival Songkran - Thailand’s public holidays which fall on Apr 12 to 15 this year - Thailand’s academic committee under the Communicable Disease Act of 2015 proposed that the Disease Control Department recategorise different provinces into zones to reflect the level of COVID-19 control measures.

“The committee has considered the situation and determined that provinces where the communicable disease is gaining strength be categorised as red zones, especially when infections involve entertainment venues and a lot of travelling,” said director-general of the Disease Control Department Opas Kankawinpong on Monday.

Night clubs and go-go bars street Soi Cowboy is seen empty after Thai government ordered the closure of cinemas, bars and other entertainment facilities as part of a raft of measures intended to control the spread of the coronavirus outbreak in Bangkok
The proposed red zones include Bangkok, Pathum Thani, Nonthaburi, Samut Prakarn and Nakhon Pathom.

According to CCSA, the decision will be decided by the Public Health Ministry and the Interior Ministry.

“The Disease Control Department and the Public Health Ministry have expressed concern that entertainment venues could contribute to interprovincial transmission because once an entertainment venue has to close temporarily, its staff may need to find work elsewhere," CCSA assistant spokesperson Apisamai Srirangsan said in a press conference on Wednesday.

"As a result, there has been a proposal to recategorise provinces and areas into different zones."

She added that as of now, the recategorisation has yet to happen. "However, we’d like the public to closely follow developments because within the next few days, the Health Ministry and the Interior Ministry will discuss this issue in detail."

On Monday, Bangkok governor Aswin Kwanmuang ordered temporary closure of entertainment venues, massage parlours and businesses similar to pubs, bars and karaoke venues in Wattana, Klongtoei and Bangkae districts from Apr 6 to 19.

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said on Wednesday he has "several concerns" about the pandemic and urged the public to protect themselves by wearing face masks, maintaining social distancing and avoiding areas at risk of infections.

"The government needs to close certain venues. If any venue is detected without COVID-19 control measures in place, it'll face closure immediately," he said after a Cabinet meeting.

According to the prime minister, he has ordered field hospitals to be prepared in Bangkok in case of high transmission rates.

Meanwhile, Dr Yong Poovorawan from the Center of Excellence in Clinical Virology at the Faculty of Medicine, Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, shared a preliminary report about the coronavirus variant found at entertainment venues in Wattana district.

"The COVID-19 strain spreading at the entertainment venues, based on a preliminary test, is the UK strain," he wrote on his Facebook page, adding confirmation is pending on genomic sequencing.

The preliminary report shared by Dr Yong said the UK strain can spread 1.7 times faster than the "wild type" strain found previously in Bangkok.

Currently, more than 1,700 patients are receiving treatment for COVID-19, CCSA said on Wednesday, adding 13 of them are in critical conditions.

This year, the Thai government has banned the street water fights that usually take place during the Songkran celebrations due to the pandemic.

"Water splashing will not happen this Songkran. We must ask you to cooperate with us," Taweesin Wisanuyothin, a spokesman for Thailand's COVID-19 taskforce, told a briefing last month.

He said foam parties would also be banned, though a tradition of pouring water over the hands of older people, religious activities and travel between provinces to visit relatives would be allowed.

Thailand prepares to ease Covid-19 curbs for vaccinated tourists

BANGKOK (REUTERS) - Thai authorities are preparing a plan to ease restrictions for travellers vaccinated against the coronavirus, senior officials said on Wednesday (Feb 24), as the country looks to revive a tourism industry battered by travel curbs.

Measures for vaccinated visitors would be introduced step by step and could include shortening the mandatory quarantine for all arrivals from two weeks to three days for those vaccinated, or waiving it entirely, Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) governor Yuthasak Supasorn said.

"We have to be fast because we want to start welcoming tourists in the third quarter," he told Reuters.

The TAT plans to begin selling tour packages after April.

The tourism ministry has also requested 100,000 doses of Covid-19 vaccine for tourism workers in Chon Buri, Krabi, Phang Nga, Chiang Mai and Phuket.

The five provinces will from next month host "hotel area quarantine" programmes offering 5,000 to 6,000 rooms, where visitors can move around within hotel grounds instead of being confined to their rooms, according to tourism minister, Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn.

The global vaccine rollout has given hope to the pandemic-hit industry, which makes up about 11 per cent of Southeast Asia's second-largest economy.

In 2019, Thailand received about 40 million foreign tourists, who spent 1.91 trillion baht (S$84 billion).

That compared with just 6.7 million visitors last year and revenue of 332 billion baht, due largely to Thailand's tight limits on international commercial flights and visitors.

Since October it has allowed a limited number of tourists to return on long visas, including a group from South Korea for a new "golf quarantine" programme.

"This year, we expect about five million visitors, but next year it should jump because the vaccine will have helped, maybe 15 million," Phiphat told state television.

Arrivals could reach 30 million in 2023 and return to pre-pandemic levels the year after, he said.

Thailand on Wednesday received its first 200,000 doses coronavirus vaccines.

Coronavirus: Tee off in Thailand as tourists arrive for golf quarantine

BANGKOK (REUTERS) - Thailand has welcomed golfers from South Korea for the country's new golf quarantine programme in a bid to boost tourism revenue hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.

About 40 South Koreans are undergoing quarantine at Artitaya Country Club, an hour north of Bangkok, where they were tested on arrival last week, Tourism Authority of Thailand deputy governor, Thapanee Kiatphaibool, told Reuters.

Thailand has been successful in controlling coronavirus cases, but strict border controls have decimated its tourism industry, with revenues dropping by 83 per cent as it went from 40 million visitors in 2019 to 6.7 million last year.

The golf quarantine programme is drawing only a small fraction of around 250,000 South Korean golfers who visited Thailand in 2019, but officials hope it will grow at the six approved courses which have specific health measures in place.

The South Koreans who arrived last week are staying in hotel rooms for three days and can go out on the course after results from their first coronavirus test come back negative.

They are tested again on the ninth and 13th days of their stay before being discharged from quarantine.

"There have been continuous bookings," Thapanee said, adding that the programme started by targeting short-haul markets carrying low to moderate risks such as Singapore and Hong Kong.

Thailand has kept the number of coronavirus cases to 25,599 infections and 83 fatalities by sealing off its borders but the tourism industry, which contributes around 12 per cent to its economy, has been badly hit.

In 2020, revenue dropped to 332 billion baht (S$14.6 billion) from 1.91 trillion baht the previous year.

Each tourist in the programme will generate revenue of at least 100,000 baht, she said.

"Tourists could go and enjoy other destinations after quarantine, so there will be more revenue of at least two to three times the average," Thapanee said.

Artitaya Country Club's Seoul office said the package cost 2.49 million won (S$3,000) for a 15-day stay - including meals but not flights - with interest coming from Koreans doing business in Thailand, student-athletes and golf academies looking for private practice facilities
