Thailand's COVID-19 deaths, 85% unvaccinated
The Thai Department of Disease Control has tracked the vaccination records of 13,637 deaths nationwide, and found that 14.4% of total fatalities were vaccinated once, 0.8% of them were vaccinated two times. 84.8% of total fatalities were the people who did not have vaccinated or did not have a vaccination record.

The survey covers the period from July 25th to September 9th, with the majority of deaths being people over the age of 60.

By region, more than 60% of the fatalities were in Bangkok and 5% were in the southern border provinces. These are the dark red zones, which are considered the most dangerous areas for infection.

Vaccines can not only protect people from infection, but also save lives, said Dr Taweesilp Visanuyothin, a spokesman for CCSA.

From October 1st, Bangkok, Chongburi, Chiang Mai, Hua Hin and other provinces are planing to reopen and preparing to accept foreign tourists without quarantine, and as a condition, more than 70% of the residents have completed vaccination.

Pattaya reopening plan "Move On" will be submitted to CCSA this Friday
Tourism and Sports Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn visits Pattaya on September 12, 2021 and discussed on the plans to reopen Pattaya to allow foreign tourists who vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine without quarantine "Move On".

The discussion was attended by Governor Chonburi and several officials from the cities of Pattaya and Sattahip, which are the areas covered by the "Move On" program. The meeting prepared details of the proposal of "Move On" plan to be submitted to the Thai Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration(CCSA) on September 17th this Friday. The approval must be approved by both of the CCSA and the Thai Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Prayut, before October 1st to begin the "Move On" program on time.

Tourism Minister Pipat emphasized that the "Move On" plan is a "step" rather than a "complete reopen" in Pattaya. The "Move On" plan still needs a lot of confirmation and requires three days of quarantine. A "full resumption without quarantine" may not take place until early next year. The "Move On" plan allows people to act only within the so-called "sealed route."

Tourism Minister Pipat is confident that CCSA will approvesaid the reopening plas of Bangkok, Chonburi, Phetchaburi, Prachuap Khiri Khan and Chiang Mai which will reopen those areas on Octobe 1st. More is expected to become apparent after the CCSA meeting scheduled for later this week.

For short-term tourists, the presence or absence of quarantine is the biggest decision making factor to choose their destination for travel. In fact, few tourists have visited Koh Samui, which was reopened by "Samui Plus," which mandates three days of quarantine, and it has already been concluded that "Samui Plus" has failed. They have announced that on October they will start a scheme similar to Sandbox program which implemented in Phuket. It's clear that tourists aren't going to recover unless the quarantine is gone, but we feel happy to see the region reopen as a first step on October 1. By the end of October, it is hoped that each province will identify issues with the current plan and will put the fully reopening the country without quarantine into practice as soon as possible.

"Siam Niramit Bangkok" closed completely
The Siam Niramit Bangkok Theater where you can enjoy Thai classical dance, has been closed for a long time due to the influence of the spread of COVID-19, but unfortunately according to the Thai media Thansettakij, it was reported that it would be completely closed.

Due to the influence of the spread of COVID-19, it will took longer time for the Thai tourism industry to recover, and the burden of paying for theater leasing became stronger, so they decided to withdraw from the business. It is reported that executives of the Siam Niramit theater are currently discussing a complete closure process and future compensation with theater staffs.

The Siam Niramit Theater in Phuket is also closed temporary, but has not been completely closed. The theater is also popular with foreign tourists, so it is hoped that it will reopen in near future.

The official website of Siam Niramit has not yet officially announced the closure.

According to Thai public broadcaster Thailand PBS and others, instructors and operators of fitness clubs in the Bangkok metropolitan area visited the parliament on the 9th September and submitted a petition to the House of Representatives Sports Committee for industry support.

Fitness clubs in Bangkok and other areas have been forced to suspend operations for a long period of time due to the government's countermeasures against the coronavirus infection, and many businesses are going out of business.

The operators of fitness clubs requested business resumption, vaccination of instructors, monetary compensation for business suspension, low interest loans, a place between the Thai government and fitness operators to discuss the current state of the industry and the requests etc.

Many of the expats staying in Thailand are fitness trainers. Individual trainers continue to lose their place of work since the fitness club was forced to be closed. In addition to financial support from the government, there is an urgent need to reopen the fitness club as soon as possible.
