Face-to-face sex positions and deep kissing is also discouraged in the Southeast Asian nation. The Bureau also made its usual recommendation of contraceptives to prevent unwanted pregnancies. “If possible, wearing face masks while having sex can help reduce Covid risks,” Bunyarit said.
Vaccination Rates in Thailand
Thailand has administered at least 119,975,116 doses of COVID vaccines so far. Assuming that every person requires two doses, that’s enough to have vaccinated about 86.2% of the country’s population. Despite that very high vaccination rate, health authorities still felt the need to warn their population not to let their guard down on Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day sex may still occur, but with a few adjustments.
With the Omicron spike already behind the country though, Filipinos are still advised to wear masks and follow health protocols when going out.
