Thirteen returnees from Israel and Singapore were immediately sent to the hospital after displaying high fevers upon arriving in Thailand yesterday.

Suvarnabhumi Airport deputy director Kittipong Kittikachorn said that a total of 281 Thais came back to the Kingdom on Sunday, entering Suvarnabhumi Airport.

“The 106 Thais departed from Israel on El Al Flight LY 081 and arrived at the airport at 11.45am,” Kittipong said. “Preliminary screening found that six passengers had high fever and they were rushed to hospital.”

Three expressed an interest in entering alternative quarantine while the other 97 were transported to the government’s quarantine facilities in Chon Buri and Bangkok to complete the mandatory 14-day quarantine.

“The second flight carrying Thais home came from Singapore,” Kittipong added. “Singapore Airlines Flight SQ 976 touched down at Suvarnabhumi at 4.56pm. Out of 175 passengers, seven were found to have high fever and rushed to hospital.”

Six passengers chose to go to alternative quarantine facilities while the other 162 were transported to the government’s quarantine facilities in Bangkok.
