    How can all these people test positive when they are tested before they get on a plane negative.i think the testing here is not 100 percent

      Thai Nationals returning don’t require a Neg Covid test prior to returning home like foreign nationals that have received their COE. it makes no sense. so a thai could have covid and be asymptomatic but a foreigner is neg, they fly together, maybe even sit in the same row, the chance of the foreigner contracting covid has just gone up exponentially.

      why not make the thai have a neg covid test to return. this would fix the issue of positive tests in quarantine (almost entirely). Don’t allow anyone on the plane that hasn’t received a neg test 72 hours before the flight and the risk of contracting while in flight is nearly eliminated.

    Thais do not require a test for COE.
