PHUKET:-- Thousands of people arriving at Phuket International Airport from elsewhere in the country today (Apr 22) were subjected to the first day of mandatory rapid tests for COVID-19 as a requisite for entering the province.

 

Phuket Governor Narong Woonciew today inspected the operations to ensure they went smoothly, though long queues of people were found waiting to undergo the procedure.

 

Governor Narong during his live video press conference this morning said that it was expected that very few people would be able to avoid having to take the rapid test, even though the first two flights today carried less than 150 passengers in total.

The 500 baht is one thing,  but what happen if you test positive (fale positive or otherwise)?

Suddenly that long weekend in Phuket could turn into a nightmare. 

If only going for 'that long weekend in Phuket' then you should not be travelling so deserve anything that's thrown at you
