    1. We are in a HAQ in Bangkok after arrival from Amsterdam. Like everyone entering Thailand by plan we needed a COE, Negative PCR test within 72 hours before departure, Fit to fly. Entering Thailand having a PCR test on day 0 and on day 6.
      Just tell me, if you have Corona before entering Thailand, how this get undiscovered. Not possible at all. We have been following the reporting and figures closely, and looking at the quarantaine regime here, those corona infections are infected INSIDE THAILAND. Being in quarantaine! No other conclusion is possible.

      1. I would also question this, I do realize it is possible to pass the test 72 hours before the plane takes off and fail the test upon entering Thailand but for most very unlikely and more likely to show up when in isolation for 14 days.
        So upon arrival and the test at the airport, I would make sure the person doing the test was following all proper cleaning methods before my test, have you watched them wash their hands, have they put on a new pair of rubber gloves, have they put on a new face mask, have you seen them take the test stick out of sanitary package, have they replaced the test stick a sanitary package as soon as possible after the test and finally the test microscope has it been stairlized between test slides? Myself I would want to be treated as soon as possible if I really have corvid-19 and if not go about a normal stay.

  1. I am sorry but Thailand is foolish letting all overseas travelers in until a vaccine is found
    if the Virus takes hold in Thailand with the new strains now they may never stop it
    I wish you well Thailand
    Lives are more important than money however if you take more notice of your roads deaths that would be a big help also to your population
