So they are not talking about those that got in through the quarantine.

so the "foreigners" could be Myanmar, Cambodia or Indian workers.... but the country is closed, and the government said they had tackled all smuggling from the neighboring countries, are these the ones falling  through the cracks 555

Wow some jump or maybe just finally testing people. Kiss goodbye to the borders opening in the next few months and restrictions on the lock down.

 

This is sad for those in the country and those who want to go back.
