I read on https://mobile.twitter.com/RichardBarrow/status/1275651072795783168 (mirror) that quite a few Thai citizens returning to Thailand over the past two months have tested positive for COVID-19 once in Thailand (at the airport or during the mandatory state quarantine). Are Thai citizens returning to Thailand tested for COVID-19 prior to taking the flight?
There has now been two cases so far of Thais returning from The Philippines with #COVID19 out of 961 returnees. The top 5 for most infections among returnees are:
- Quwait 34 out of 174 returnees
- Saudi Arabia 28/274
- Indonesia 65/913
- Pakistan 13/196
- Kazakhstan 2/55
