Songkhla hotel braces for 300 returnees from Malaysia
Staff at a Songkhla hotel are preparing the place to welcome Thais who will return from Malaysia via the Sadao checkpoint from Saturday (April 18) onwards.
The M SOHO Danok Hotel in Samnak Kham Subdistrict, Sadao District, will be used to quarantine returnees for 14 days to monitor their symptoms and prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Authorities expect 300 of the estimated 3,400 Thais stranded in Malaysia will gradually return via four Thailand-Malaysia border checkpoints, starting on Saturday.
Returnees must show a letter from a Thai embassy or consulate, and medical certificate issued in the past 72 hours, to enter the country.
