The Defence Ministry aims to bring back more Thais stranded in other countries – from 400 a day to 500 from June 5.

Spokesman Lt-General Kongcheep Tantawanich said that at the moment 400 Thais return home a day via three to five flights to limit the spread of Covid-19.

However, the ministry aims to bring back home more Thai nationals as “responsible organisations have evaluated their capacity for disease control management”, he said.

They are now preparing locations to receive and quarantine more returnees – up to 500 a day from June 5.

This comes after Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said he would like to see more stranded Thais brought back home, Kongcheep said.
