Cambodia's Phnom Penh capital has become the city having the highest ratio of COVID1-19 vaccination in Southeast Asia, enabling the Ministry of Tourism and relevant agencies to design a plan to reopen the country’s borders for fully vaccinated international tourists.....
right, fully vaccinated
with vaccinations that evidence is showing don't work, which is why they have to keep cranking out "booster" shots every 6 months
and - ta da - vaccines that kill more people than covid.
Vaccines that kill more people than covid? May I ask what data that statement is based on?

Ignorant nonsense consistent with this poster's usual genius level analysis.
How efficacious is the vaccine?
A large phase 3 trial in Brazil showed that two doses, administered at an interval of 14 days, had an efficacy of 51% against symptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection, 100% against severe COVID-19, and 100% against hospitalization starting 14 days after receiving the second dose.

Does it work against new variants of SARS-CoV-2 virus?
In an observational study, the estimated effectiveness of Sinovac-CoronaVac in health workers in Manaus, Brazil, where P.1 accounted for 75% of SARS-CoV-2 samples was 49.6% against symptomatic infection (4). Effectiveness has also been shown in an observational study in Sao Paulo in the presence of P1 circulation (83% of samples).

Assessments in settings where the P.2 Variant of Concern was widely circulating – also in Brazil - estimated vaccine effectiveness of 49.6% following at least one dose and demonstrated 50.7% two weeks after the second dose. As new data becomes available, WHO will update recommendations accordingly.

SAGE currently recommends using this vaccine, according to the WHO Prioritization Roadmap.

Thailand in travel bubble talks with Cambodia, Malaysia and Laos

Thailand is currently in talks with Cambodia, Malaysia and Laos to set up two-way travel bubbles in a bid to revive intra-regional travel.

Minister of tourism and sports Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn said that many international tourists are keen to visit places outside of the designated Sandbox areas, but are deterred by prevailing quarantine requirements.
Thailand’s tourism ministry plans to establish travel bubbles this year

As such, the tourism ministry together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Public Health are seeking to establishment travel bubble arrangements with regional countries.

As a first step, the Thai government is negotiating with Cambodia to reopen Trat province in eastern Thailand and Cambodia’s Koh Kong island. The deal is expected to be finalised within the final quarter of this year.

Authorities are also in discussion to link Malaysia’s Langkawi Island with Koh Lipe Island in southern Thailand. Negotiations are also underway between Thailand and Laos for a similar arrangement.

Good luck to Thailand and Laos. Thailand is only 33% double vaxxed, and Laos 28%.

New (to me) unspoken rule in Cambodia. No testing. If you feel sick, stay home and take Chinese medicine.

If you really want to know, pay for testing yourself.

New normal is living with the virus.

Makes me think the country will open up soon.

Just my opinions.
