Reopening Thailand to tourists after the arrival of Covid-19 vaccines will only put the country in further danger, Thira Woratanarat, a lecturer from Chulalongkorn University’s Faculty of Medicine, warned in a Facebook post on Wednesday.

He said Covid-19 will continue spreading if the vaccine cannot stop asymptomatic people from transmitting the virus and if people lower their guard.

The lecturer said it was necessary to study asymptomatic infections further as the information available so far is insufficient.

“Things are no safe yet, so people should strictly adhere to preventive measures and monitor their health. See the doctor immediately if you have any symptoms,” Thira said.
