All of us in Phuket will also be vaccinated soon so it will not be necessary for quarantine in order to play golf in Phuket. We believe that Phuket has a lot of interests from travelers to visit. We are expecting in 1st October 2021, 70% of the people in Phuket will be vaccinated approximately 350,000 people. We will then be able to welcome international travelers without quarantine. Now, vaccines have started to arrive but not in huge quantities; only 4000 doses, 16,000 doses in April, 48,000 doses in May which will be given to high risk people first for example people working in hospitals then it will be people who works at the airport and hospitality industry. We will make Phuket to be the first priority to receive the vaccines because Phuket has only 1 main economy which is tourism”.
