PHUKET:-- Regional health ministry officials today (Sept 30) conducted a demonstration test of the COVID-19 test laboratory at Phuket International Airport, ahead of other regional medical officers conducting a formal inspection and test of the COVID-19 test and prevention measures at the airport tomorrow.

 

The approval of the test laboratory at the airport is considered the last hurdle before Phuket can be finally cleared by the Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) in Bangkok to welcome international tourists once again.

 

Phuket Governor Narong Woonchiew, Phuket International Airport General Manager Thanee Chuangchoo and Phuket Provincial Health Office Chief Dr Thanit Seermkaew were all present today for the demonstration test of the laboratory and tourist-arrival procedures.

Why do they need a lab at the airport? From what I've read, passengers are tested for C19 within 72 hours before flying and then again once they reach their ASQ location. I'm not aware of any testing that needs to be done at the airport. Unless the government has done a dirty on us and decided to abandon quarantine for people coming from low-risk countries like China (hah!) and make do with a test-on-arrival instead. That would at least explain how they managed to fill the flight so quickly.
