Deputy Health Minister Satit Pitutecha said on Saturday (Mar 7) that all Thais returning from South Korea from Sunday (March 8) will be transferred to the Sattahip Army Base in Chonburi province, to screen for Covid-19 symptoms. Those having fever will be sent to a hospital. The measures also apply to foreigners, who could be shifted to a hotel if they are in good health.
The returning Thai labourers will be in quarantine at Sattahip Army house.
Satit admitted that 200 Thai labourers had arrived. Some of them were resisting the screening measure from the health officers and some 70-80 had fled.
The Department of Disease Control has checked their travel history in order to bring them back to quarantine and punish them under the Disease Control Act.
