Inbound Flight Ban To Extend Till End Of April Nationwide
Earlier today, the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) has announced that all inbound flights heading into Thailand will be further banned till 30th April 2020. This is in all in the hopes to further curb the coronavirus outbreak.
However, repatriation flights and some others for the Covid-19 control will be exempted from the ban. This includes state and military aircrafts, humanitarian aid, medical and relief flights as well as cargo flights. Anyone arriving on the exempted flights will be subject to a 14-day quarantine.
This will be the third extension on the ban since it was imposed earlier this month, on 3rd April. With the existing night curfew taking place in Thailand, there’s no doubt that the government is taking strict measures to curb the spread of Covid-19.
Just today, Thailand has seen an increase of 30 new Covid-19 cases, accumulating to a total of 2,643 cases with 43 total deaths. Meanwhile, a total of 1,497 patients have recovered and been discharged.
