“However we are worried about the shortage of labor in some sectors and some businesses are still closed as they don’t have enough money to re-open immediately if the number of Chinese tourists will be at the same as before Covid -19,” Mr. Thanet added.
“On the other hand, we are not worried about Covid-19 from Chinese people as we are vaccinated and already passed through a serious period of the pandemic,” Mr. Thanet noted
The Phuket Provincial Public Health Chief Doctor Kusak Kukiattikoon told the Phuket Express “More than 90 percent of people in Phuket have already been vaccinated. About 40 percent have received four doses of Covid-19 vaccinations especially people who work in tourism businesses.”
