Likely to be the new variant anyway so hardly matters most aren’t even going to hospital

It would be interesting to know, if the number of tourists arriving with Covid is dropping, because Covid is detected less often, or because the number of tourists is dropping.

I am glad, that Covid case numbers in Phuket (and also most other provinces of Thailand) are stable. They will soon start to decline.
