Well d'oh. MoPH stopped publishing the diagnosis backlog days ago. It's probably a week or two just to clear the ones from back then. Don't hold your breath waiting for the results.

The chief of the Commercial Affairs Phuket office, Sasiwimon Mongkhon, last Thursday reported that her office had investigated 250 complaints of retailers overcharging for face masks, but found none of them guilty enough to be charged. They were “just increased prices”, she said.

 

Thai logic does sometimes confuse me!

I flew into Phuket last week and saw no checks upon arriving.  Only check was on departure where they put a thermstat on everyone's forehead.

 

>>>“The Phuket Government, the PPHO and other relevant officers are still screening people’s body temperature at Phuket International Airport

Which is what they do at most airports. Either IR scan with camera or an individual IR thermometer.

Not much else they can do in a practical sense.

Shouldn't they be doing this on arrivals also?  There were zero checks on arrival.

None of these "checks" are really any good.

They do nothing to find someone who has the virus in it's incubation stage, which could be two weeks.

 

Far sad the disregard for trying to actually do something.
