The country’s borders are restricted under a state of emergency that lasts until June 30, and most incoming international flights are banned. At the same time, officials are easing a lockdown after coronavirus cases dwindled, and mulling how to restart the crucial tourism sector to help counter a recession. “There won’t be free movement because we don’t want another outbreak that could hurt both the origin and the destination,” Gen Prayut said.
