On the side of Dr. Opas Karnkawinpong Director-General of the Department of Disease Control said that the second phase of opening the country will be proposed to the CCC on November 26, mainly to open more channels to enter the country. The rate of infection among people entering the country in the early stages is relatively low.

Who is responsible? Because each day, the Test & Go system has more than 5 thousand people coming in. Believe that if we open more There will be tens of thousands of people coming in. You must set up the system well first. and then proceed

When asked, we detect a low rate of incoming visitors. But when he came in, how much was the rate of infection? Dr. Opas said that it was not a lot. compared to infections in Thailand Based on information gathered from Phuket Sandbox It was found that it did not cause an increase in the outbreak in Phuket.

As for the COVID Free Setting measures, there may be an infection leak, but it will control 100% without doing anything. or to relax But after leaking, there are additional measures such as vaccination, medicine, disease control. People will live a normal life. It is a balance of disease control and lifestyle. Will there be any additional business openings? Like a pub bar, it will follow the distance.
