BANGKOK – Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha made an unscheduled visit to one of Covid-19 quarantine facilities in Bangkok on Wednesday.
Prayut met with disease control officials at a hotel in Bangkok’s Rama IX area that has been turned into a state quarantine facility for Thai returnees from overseas.
He inspected the quarantine operation at the facility and gave moral support to state officials and hotel staff.
The prime minister asked them about problems they faced to ensure safety of the people put under the mandatory 14-day quarantine.
Prayut praised the hotel management for contributing to the efforts to fight the coronavirus outbreak in the country.
Government officials said Prayut intended to learn firsthand information on state quarantine facilities before a daily meeting of the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) on Thursday.
Since the government has declared state of emergency since March 26, all travelers including Thai returnees are required to take a 14-day state quarantine. (TNA)
