The press were called to the old Phuket Provincial Hall, where they were addressed by Governor Narong, accompanied by Phuket Vice Governors Pichet Panaphong and Anupap Rodkwan Yodrabam.

“Today’s press conference has an important issue regarding the current situation of COVID-19, where the number of infected people in the province has dropped sequentially while preparing measures to prevent the spread during the Songkran holiday,” Governor Narong said, according to the Phuket office of the Public Relations Department (PR Phuket)

“People will come here, and we hereby are asking people to strictly follow the measures set by the Ministry of Public Health,” Governor Narong said.

“It is also a statement on the situation of tourism in Phuket, including a tourism revitalisation plan,” he added, said the PR Phuket report.

“There is also the issue of landscaping improvements along different roads and places in order to create beauty, especially in the matter of planting bougainvillaea trees, which are the official trees of Phuket provincial, by allowing local government organisations to take action,” Governor narong continued.

“In the past, it has been found that there have been several operations such as on Thepkrasattri Rd. It also emphasises on the cleanliness of the country as well,” Governor Narong said, concluded the PR Phuket report.

While the report of the special press conference did not mention any of the COVID-19 requirements in effect, The Phuket News would like to point out that Governor Narong Wednesday night last week issued a new provincial order to ensure that domestic tourists looking to travel to Phuket during the Songkran holidays were aware of the COVID requirements for entering the province.

Stop cutting down decades old trees to make  4 lane racetracks.  You could land a 747 on the road  between ban Don and Thailand- and it just bottlenecks  at both ends with long waits to get through Thalang lights. All so taxis can travel at  unsafe speeds.

A press briefing on COVID which provides little information on the confusion over the rules but blathers on about plants. Anyone remember a previous Gov who's plan saw a lucrative palm avenue planted all the way down Thepkasattri of which few remain, Follow the money!
