OREANDA-NEWS. Despite the increase in the incidence of the "delta" strain of coronavirus, in Thailand, after Phuket, several islands were opened for vaccinated tourists.

According to The Bangkok Post on Thursday, foreign tourists began to receive foreign tourists on the island of Koh Samui, Phangan and Tau in the Gulf of Thailand.

Phuket opened to vaccinated tourists on July 1st. Vacationers no longer need to go through quarantine at a hotel on the island, but they are prohibited from leaving Phuket for two weeks.

Tourists arriving at Koh Phangan and Tau are asked to provide a negative PCR test one week after arrival.

According to the list published by the Tourism Authority of Thailand, the requirements for arriving at the resorts of Surat Thani are partially similar to those that apply from July 1 in Phuket.

Bangkok and nine provinces of the country are currently subject to severe restrictions, including a curfew and a ban on gatherings of more than five people.

During the day in Thailand, about 9.2 thousand new cases of coronavirus were detected, 98 people later died of infection with COVID-19.
