In the Buri Ram, Thailand, Governor Thatchakorn Hatathathayakul, on May 2, ordered the closure of the two villages containing about 400 households or more than 1,000 people. There will be a total ban on people in and out for 14 days. They were not allowed to travel and no visitors. But now, the governor has been the first in the world to violate human rights. He has ordered everyone in the province to be vaccinated against Covid-19 or risk being fined or jailed for up to two years. This raises serious questions about Thailand for travel. Thailand has relied upon ex-pats as a major source of income for those who retire there or just visit one of the most beautiful countries in Southeast Asia.
