Thai Rath reported that 3,000 foreign teachers from many countries have submitted requests to come to Thailand to teach at private schools.

 

Secretary of the Office of Private Education Commission Akkaraphon Treuktrong said the teachers would be at international and other schools throughout the country. 

 

All will have to undergo health checks in their country of origin before they are cleared to fly and they will then undergo a 14 day quarantine in Thailand for which they have to pay themselves. 

 

There will be no exceptions and anyone who does not pass the stringent tests and regulations will be barred. 

 

Meanwhile foreign teachers have already started arriving. The media said that 165 Filipino teachers arrived on a Philippines Air Asia flight at the weekend.

 

They have been quarantined at Alternative State Quarantine (ASQ) facilities in Bangkok and surrounding areas before they can go to their schools.

 

They were among a continuing number of Thai returnees and foreigners who were allowed to enter the kingdom through Don Muang and Suvanabhumi airports in recent days.

 

One flight - KL875 - had 109 foreigners on board. They were from Brazil, Australia and a host of European countries. 

 

The foreigners are mostly embassy personnel, businessmen with a base in Thailand and people seeking medical attention. All must quarantine. 

 

In a wide ranging report on the latest Covid-19 news Thai Rath said that the USA had named Thailand as a low risk country for the infection.

 

Three people tested positive for coronavirus including one from Indonesia and two students from Saudi Arabia.

Can't see any of those teachers affording the $100k insurance, period testing and paying for their quarantines as teachers usually not that flush with cash to say the least...

Teachers at private schools earn a pretty good salary actually. And 100k insurance is a joke. That's hardly an insurance at all. Any westerner should know that.
