BANGKOK (Xinhua) -- Authorities of Phang-Nga Province, one of Thailand's famous tourist destinations in the south, said on Saturday that anyone entering the province is subject to a 14-day home quarantine amid concerns for a second wave of COVID-19 pandemic.

 

"A 14-day home quarantine is not too much to ask," said Phang-Nga provincial governor Chamroen Thipphayaphongthada, "however for those who can provide evidence of entering a state or local quarantine facility before arriving into the Phang-Nga, won't need to go through a another round of quarantine."

 

The announcement came after Thailand last week discovered a new local COVID-19 case after 100 days of free local transmission. The surging number of COVID-19 cases in neighboring Myanmar also prompted the governor to reimpose the health measures.

I'd prefer to wait to hear this reported from a Thailand news source rather than Chinese 

Probably a poor translation and not for people living in the country now, but for maybe future visitors from outside, and specially from the country, who gave us the flue.

Maybe they know something we don't know.... I admit that would be a first, but is in realm of possibility

 

Possibly this?

May be these guys should test quarantine, even if they don't have to, just to see how it can feel for foreign tourists.

They are just too lazy to translate them: https://ddc.moph.go.th/viralpneumonia/situation.php

 

PUI criteria is here: https://ddc.moph.go.th/viralpneumonia/eng/file/guidelines/g_surveillance_230620n.pdf

Quote

2.1 Symptomatic PUIs with any of the following respiratory symptoms such as cough, runny nose, sore throat, anosmia, tachypnea, or shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing and/or having temperature ≥37.5 °C

 

Which covers just about any common cold. Has anybody tried lately to get tested?

 

Fun fact: my wife seems to be permanently running at 37.4, I at 36.8 (I have a high precision Braun temp meter that you stick in the ear). 0.1 more for her and she's toast. Never been stopped at the Cheap Chinese Infrared <deleted> meter station though. I guess you have to be over 50 DegC.

Imagine travelling from outside Thailand, quarantining for 14 days , spending 2 nights in Bangkok, then having to quarantine for another 14 days here - not to mention another 14 days when you went home

Do buck up Richard, if you've already done quarantine elsewhere you are exempt (according to the OP). 

And this comes from an official organ of the Chinese Communist Party. 

 

They ain't daft you know. Er..........

Do NOT book any kind of accomodation or travel to any part of Thailand outside of your home-province, as you will never know, which kind of quarantine request will suddenly pop up, before your scheduled holiday!  The government is encouraging residents of Thailand to travel within the country, in order to support the suffering tourism industry, while local guvernors are opposing the exact same idea!!
