Thai ministers keep saying that Thailand has no local coronavirus but they never tell us how many tests they do daily. Probably very few, close to none. They like to play with numbers to make themselves look good.

They caught it in Thailand. Are they testing those in contact?

Presumedly these positives were on  the plane to Thailand and had Covid-19 or caught the Covid while on the flights. OK , how do the pilots not catch the Covid ?
