If you are thinking there are not many people traveling to Hatyai, then you are wrong. The flight is at least 70% full in loading capacity and most of the traveller are mostly Malaysians and Thais.
For your information, there are almost no Chinese tourists in Southern Thailand. The last chartered flight from Chengdu China to Hatyai was in late January 2020. Hence, there is no corona virus cases detected in Southern Thailand at all. However, there was one Corona virus case of Chinese traveling to Malaysia via Bukit Kayu Hitam, he is from GuangZhou.
