Thailand Omicron News: The Thai government in the last few hours decided to finally cancel the test and go scheme for fully vaccinated tourist and reimpose the mandatory quarantine rules as before in order the protect its citizens and prevent a bad Omicron surge in the country as what is being witnessed in badly managed countries like the United Kingdom.

 
Although the decision is a blow to efforts to revive Thailand's battered tourism sector ahead of the peak holiday season, many locals felt that the government was correct in its decision while many leading experts and doctors felt that the measures were not enough as the country needs to impose a full border closure similar to Japan, China or the Netherlands to prevent a catastrophic surge as what is currently starting to occur in the United Kingdom.
 
Contrary to what a lot of ignorant people are saying or even garbage media reporting that the Omicron variant is mild, emerging data is showing that the Omicron variant is evolving rapidly and with three already identified sub-lineages and more being identified and currently being classified. Even if an individual develops asymptomatic or mild symptoms, the long-term health and medical risk are enormous as preliminary data suggest that the newer Omicron sub-lineages have different pathogenesis modes that are more worrying.
