BANGKOK, Sept 17 (TNA) – Bangkok governor Aswin Kwanmuang did not confirm that the capital could reopen to welcome tourists on Oct 15, saying at least 70% of his people would have to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 first.

Inspecting inoculation at the Port Authority of Thailand in Klong Toey district, Pol Gen Aswin said that the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration earlier expected 70% of its population would have received two doses of COVID-19 vaccines by Oct 22 and if it obtained more vaccine doses, the 70% coverage for 4.9 million out of 7 million people could be achieved before Oct 15.
