There were two new Covid-19 cases over a 24-hour period, the government’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration said on Saturday (August 1).

 

 

It was the 68th day without a domestic case since May.

 

The patients had returned from Serbia and Denmark, and were in state quarantine.

 

As of Saturday, the total number of confirmed cases in the country stood at 3,312 (375 in state quarantine) -- 119 are under treatment, 3,135 have recovered and been discharged, and there have been 58 deaths.

I have never heard of it anywhere, neither in the press, nor on TV, nor on the internet.

With all these confirmed cases in quarantine on a daily basis is it quarantine that is infected ?

 

Or is it the government saying look we cant let anyone in, those who lives depend on tourism are on their own but don't protest about it we need a new plane for our essential travel though 🤔

Two foreigners landing in Thailand have COVID-19 and are in quarantine

Thailand today recorded two new COVID-19 cases, both foreigners arriving from Europe and now in quarantine.

 

According to the CCSA, one is a Serbian footballer, arriving on a chartered flight from Serbia which landed at Buri Ram airport on July 19th.  He was cleared by Thai health officials on arrival and taken to a local quarantine facility in the northeastern province. A second test, conducted on July 27th, confirmed he is infected and he was admitted to the provincial hospital for treatment.

 

The other case is a Finnish engineer, arriving in Thailand on July 27th from Denmark and entering quarantine in Bangkok. He was cleared of infection in May and on July 24th, prior to embarking in Denmark for his flight to Thailand.  On July 30th, however, he tested positive for the virus and was admitted to a private hospital in Bangkok.

So Serdian footballer is not tourist! He's Elite holder or King's friend ? Maybe he's engineer also!

Almost certainly not if there were spread within the quarantine facilities the number of cases would be much more. And quarantine conditions don't lend themselves to disease spread, that is rather the point.

 

The number of confirmed cases is not that  large relative to the total number of returnees. And remember that, unlike foreigners,  Thais are not tested prior to return.

 

 

 

I have always found that last comment a bit strange.....................if not inconsistent.

 

 

I guess anyone contracting CV19 on a flight (from an untested Thai) will be picked up in either the initial, or final, quarantine testing. In which case, why bother to discriminate against foreign travellers.

Bearing in mind the quarantining country in question almost certainly not could well mean it certainly can also 🤔
