A proposal to extend short-stay visas by 15 days, to make up for time spent in quarantine, has been approved by the Thai Cabinet. The proposal was originally put forward by the Interior Ministry, who pointed out that foreigners entering the Kingdom on 30-day visas or visa exemptions, would lose 14 days as a result of mandatory quarantine. The 30-day visa is available to visitors from the 56 countries and territories currently under the 30 day visa exemption scheme, as well as other countries that have bilateral agreements with Thailand.

Nice, but most short time visitors just don't have more time.

Yes if going for holiday most won't stay more than 2-3 weeks.  The long termers have got what they need if they wish to pay for quarantine but the humble tourist won't be impressed with 30 days plus 15. Will appeal to some.
