The deputy director of Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi airport says 9 Thai nationals, returning from Jordan and South Korea, have been diagnosed with “high fevers” and rushed to hospital. The first 8 were part of a group of 120 who touched down on a Royal Jordanian flight yesterday afternoon.

“Preliminary screenings found that 8 passengers had high fevers and were rushed to a hospital. The rest were transported to the government’s quarantine facilities for the mandatory 14 day quarantine, except 1 person who had an arrest warrant waiting for him, who was taken into official custody.”

Meanwhile, Nation Thailand reports that another repatriated Thai national found to be running a high fever was also hospitalised after getting off a Korean Air flight last night. He was one of 200 passengers, with the remaining 199 transferred to state quarantine facilities in the capital.

To date, South Korea has recorded 13,511 Covid-19 cases and 289 deaths from the virus, while Jordan has reported 1,183 cases and 10 deaths.
