The director of U-Tapao airport in Rayong has said that all regulations regarding Covid-19 screening were followed in the case of an Egyptian soldier who tested positive for the virus. 

 

He is believed to be one of a group of 31 soldiers who went to a hotel in Rayong while their plane was being refueled.

 

Kritchaphon Rianglekjamnong said he did not know if the man who tested positive was the one who left the hotel and went to a department store in the area.

 

The screening took place away from the main terminal as the arrival was part of a "state aircraft" matter tied up with diplomatic clearance regulations. 

 

In related news the Egyptian embassy was contacted and  police had to be called after the soldiers refused to be tested.

Do you know who I am?

 

Do you know who my father is?

 

The smallest men often make the most noise.

There is a hotel specifically for the armed forces in the Utapao airport base with a popular restaurant attached to it. There was no logical reason for them to drive over 40 minutes to the centre of Rayong to stay there, let alone to let them go to a shopping centre and evening entertainment venues. 

All of the schools are now closed in Rayong until the end of the week.

Look at where they were in transit to.  That tells who was behind this.

Any countries thinking of invading Thailand come now. Apparently the Thai army are not in the business of monitoring foreign soldiers who fly into their air bases. 

 

They're far too busy with their businesses in golf courses, boxing arenas, doing land deals with lowly-ranked soldiers, etc. 

Any foreign army invading Thailand needs only to come at noon.  Only cafeteria staff are working throughout the land.

Seriously, they are shi**ing themselves over 1 case? They will just have to learn to live with it, just like the rest of the World, if they want to restart the tourism economy and get millions back to work
