Thailand has said it will completely end the pandemic and all explicit restrictions

The official schedule for the abolition of coronavirus restrictions was presented in Thailand. The main thing is that the Covid-19 pandemic itself the kingdom expects to declare an endemic disease by July 1. Although testing, masking and social distance activities are ongoing, this is short-lived.

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said that Covid-19 was still a pandemic, and the relevant agencies were ordered to closely monitor the Omicron BA.2.2 sub-variant, which was recently discovered in Thailand. “Before moving to the endemic phase, it is necessary to conduct a thorough review and assessment,” said the Prime Minister.

The “schedule” for ending the pandemic is as follows: a “plateau stage” has been announced from April to May, where Thai experts hope the number of new Covid-19 infections will remain stable, with no outbreaks. It will be followed by a “Stage of Decline” with a reduction in infection and mortality, and then this stage will move to the “Post-Pandemic Stage”, when Covid-19 will be considered endemic rather than pandemic.

“I hope from July 1 onwards, and if all goes well and the numbers and situation go as planned, we will move on to consider coronavirus an endemic disease,” said Thai experts.
