Hope some Officialdom thinking makes they stop Dark red to Dark Red inter-provincial travel with Mini Vans.  The Mini Van is a ideal transport facility to get Covid-19 spread. And how are the bus seating protocols now? Make me thing about the dirty toilets in these busses.

Self-monitor for symptoms that may never show is no way to handle an outbreak, but will provide optimal conditions for a variant that will render already administered vaccines useless. Lock it down NOW or be real sorry later.

Great, that careless traveling between Red Dark provinces by full loaded Vans. No Covid-19 check on Vans at bridge leaving Phuket island? Domestic exporting virus Vans. Is the Van driver now in quarantine?
