137 Thai evacuees, repatriated from the Chinese city of Wuhan on February 4, were given a warm farewell as they started on their journeys back home from the Royal Thai Navy’s Sattahip base, south of Pattaya this morning.

The Thai Deputy Public Health Minister Sathit Pitutaecha, Chon Buri governor Pakkarathorn Thienchai, naval officers and medical personnel sent the group on their way as they were transported in various buses back to connecting buses or airline services, or their home towns. Departure gifts were given to the group.

The 137 evacuees completed a 14 day mandatory quarantine period and underwent final medical checks yesterday before being allowed to return home today. The final evacuee, who was infected with the coronavirus and since recovered from the disease, will remain under observation at the Chon Buri provincial hospital.

Several of the evacuees were picked up by their families, while many others were taken to Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang airports, or to bus terminals in Bangkok. The evacuees time at Sattahip, and their transport arrangements, were covered by the Royal Thai Navy.

After saying their goodbyes several evacuees expressed their appreciation and gratitude to the RTN officials with cards and hugs.
