Thailand delays travel bubble plans

As a nation dependent on tourism, Thailand had hoped to form travel bubbles with a select number of territories to help revitalise its struggling economy.

But now the government has been forced to shelve the plan amid a rising number of cases in parts of Asia, Reuters news agency reports.

 

The move, which was announced in June, would have allowed travellers from countries with low infection rates to enter Thailand without being forced to quarantine.

"Japan, Hong Kong and South Korea were among those considered because those areas had a low number of cases, but now they were in double-digits sodiscussions were put on hold," Thailand's coronavirus taskforce spokesman told Reuters.

Thailand itself has recorded just 3,300 cases of coronavirus and has gone 10 weeks without cases of local infection.
