Troops being brought home under strict measures

General Nattapon Srisawat, special adviser to the Royal Thai Army, said the 151 Thai soldiers who had gone to Hawaii to participate in the Lightning Forge 2020 training programme will be returning home on Wednesday. Their Thai Airways flight, TG8087, will land at Suvarnabhumi airport at 5.40pm.



He said the troops had been quarantined for 14 days and underwent Covid-19 tests twice before being allowed to fly. None of them have tested positive. Upon arrival, they will be moved to state quarantine facilities in Chonburi, where they will stay for another 14 days under the care of military doctors, before they are given a health certificate and allowed to go home.
