Authorities are calling for immediate quarantine and Covid-19 testing for 157 passengers of 7 flights to and from Phuket in the last few weeks. Passengers on these 7 domestic flights, mostly between Phuket and Bangkok, are considered at risk after Covid-19 infections were found on each flight.
Seating charts were released with seat numbers and rows where Covid-19 infections and at-risk passengers were seated on each Phuket flight, but they are urging anyone who was on these flights to report and get tested. They request passengers to go to the nearest hospital to their home for treatment. People are also urged to call 094-593-8875 or 062-243-5116 for more information or any questions.
