The Defence Ministry aims to bring back more Thais stranded in other countries – from 400 a day to 500 from June 5.

 

Spokesman Lt-General Kongcheep Tantawanich said that at the moment 400 Thais return home a day via three to five flights to limit the spread of Covid-19.

 

However, the ministry aims to bring back home more Thai nationals as “responsible organisations have evaluated their capacity for disease control management”, he said.

 

They are now preparing locations to receive and quarantine more returnees – up to 500 a day from June 5.

 

This comes after Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said he would like to see more stranded Thais brought back home, Kongcheep said.

Has there been a single group returning that didn't have at least one Covid-19 positive person?

A very good question, but what I cannot understand is Thailand is reporting very few new cases but many suspects in the returnees, so are we to believe none of these "High Temperature" reading people do not have the virus..??

I'M assuming they DO, and it's weighing heavily on my decision on whether or not to resume teaching in July. The little germ factories are bad enough without this additional danger.

Stranded? they had ample time to return in March-April 4.  Sounds like they were all just waiting for the tax payer (government) to foot the bill for a free ticket home.
