PHUKET: Phuket Vice Governor Phichet Panaphong has ordered officials to ramp up their efforts to ensure all migrant workers returning from Myanmar are checked for COVID-19 following a Thai woman returning from Myanmar testing positive for the virus in Chiang Mai, sparking fears of an outbreak there, and two Myanmar women testing positive for the virus in Chiang Rai.

 

Concerns have been specifically raised over how the two Myanmar women in Chiang Rai had managed to enter the country without being tested.

 

V/Gov Phichet told the meeting of the Phuket Provincial Communicable Disease Committee at Phuket Provincial Hall yesterday (Nov 30) that the central government had ordered all border provinces to set up teams to screen arrivals.
