Covid-19 Thailand – Latest Updates (29th June, 2020)

  • +7 New Cases
  • 3,162 people infected (+0)
  • 3,169 discharged from hospital (+13)
  • 58 dead (+0)


BANGKOK: Right at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic I was absolutely sure people will only travel again if they feel it is safe to do so in the new Covid-19 world, and when they have the spare cash to do so. My conviction to that mantra is as solid today as it was all those months ago.
Whilst Thailand today is considered safer, with no new local infections for the past 4 weeks – what about the rest of the world? With new regrettable milestones being reached this weekend – now over 10 million cases and 500,000 deaths globally – most predictions appear to have been widely off the mark. No more so than in the United States.
With 1 in 4 of all coronavirus cases and deaths globally within its borders – 2,510,000 cases including 44,000 new cases daily and 125,000 deaths – the USA is worst of all.
For Thailand we have been well managed. No new coronavirus cases or deaths reported for a long time leaving the total number at 3,162 cases and 58 deaths since January. No new local infection for 31 days, and no new deaths.

  • Thailand to reopen bars, allow some foreigners in from July 1

BANGKOK: Thailand will allow pubs and bars to reopen on Wednesday (Jul 1) and plans to let in some foreign travellers after recording five weeks without any community transmission of COVID-19, a government official said.

Pubs, bars and karaoke venues will be able to operate until midnight as long as they follow safety guidelines such as ensuring two metre spaces between tables.

“Alcohol consumption could reduce discipline so there will be close monitoring before customers enter venues,” Taweesin Wisanuyothin, a spokesman for the government’s Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration, told a briefing on Monday.

Foreigners with work permits, residency and families in Thailand will also be able to enter the country, but will be subject to a 14-day quarantine.
