Anutin not flying to Wuhan
Minister of Public Health Anutin Charnvirakul has pulled out of the team flying to Wuhan on Tuesday to extricate Thai people stranded in the Chinese city, citing procedural difficulties.
Anutin had said earlier that he would be travelling in the plane to Wuhan along with other officials and medical staff to bring Thais home, as he had been appointed by the Cabinet to take care of the situation.
Anutin said 142 Thais are scheduled to arrive at U-Tapao International Airport in Chonburi province on Tuesday evening and he would be there to receive them.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has already said that Thais arriving from Wuhan will have to be quarantined for 14 days, Anutin said.
