    The daliy rate of Thai people found to be infected in quarantene following in bound flights appears to be growing at an alarming rate. Why are they allowed on flights into Thailand without having a Covid 19 test, just a phone call to the embassy for a fit to fly verbal questioning? Would the infection rate not go down, and the risk for other Thai people be reduced if pre-flight Covids test were mandatory?

    interesting how these ppl test positive several days AFTER arrival. A covid test is required to get a Certificate of Entry so they did test negative prior to travelling to Thailand … Strange

      A negative covid test is not required for Thai nationals. Unless the airline requires it, they don’t have to have a test. they just get issued a COE from their local embassy/consulate to come home.
      I’d hate to be sitting on the airplane next to a thai national knowing they didn’t have to be tested prior to flying.
      I think all airlines should require a negative test regardless of who you are.

    It looks like Thailand is trying to create a fake “second wave” with bogus test and fake cases. Just like in the US where they are now pushing a case-demic based on testing when the vast majority of those tested are asymptomatic. If they are not showing symptoms they are should not be called cases. Please use the correct terminology and stop trying to scare people.

    The longest so far to test positive in quarantine is 11 days that I have seen. Very interesting and makes it clear that the quarantine does work. It also seems most of the people testing positive are coming from the middle eastern country’s and I see there’s always someone from my country America. They majority’s seems to be Thais though returning home? Interesting…..

    The paranoia is increasing it seems and is only going to help those who want to lockdown the country for extended periods of time. Zero covid tolerance is a death sentence for the economy. Not sure why this is so controversial. Vaccine is not 100 % the answer to all your prayers for several reasons which you will eventually realize .

    I do not believe some of them are positive.
    I think there is a racket going on where the testers are supplying healthy people to the hospitals.
    The hospitals make money and they kick back to the persons who do the testing. There are no second opinions.
    Many of these tested positive have no symptoms. They are asymptomatic.
    In addition Thai insurance is not paying up because they claim the asymptomatic patients are not ill.
    The scamming Thais make money both ways.
    The hospitals are paid for patients who they claim are ill, and the insurance not paying, because they claim the patients are not ill.
