.Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn said the sandbox project will be launched in Phuket and Pattaya initially. The plan is to open Phuket fully without mandatory quarantine from July, once 930,000 people or 70 per cent of Phuket’s population have been vaccinated, Phiphat said.
A similar reopening scheme will also be applied to Pattaya.
He added that the ministry will rush to procure vaccines to create more sandboxes in places like Chiang Mai, Krabi, Phang Nga and Surat Thani by October 1.
