A total of 167 Thai Nationals who have spent the last two weeks in a state mandatory quarantine at the Brighton Grand Hotel in Pattaya were released today to return to their home provinces.
The group had returned from Mumbai, India two weeks prior in a Thai repatriation flight and were placed into quarantine at the hotel in Pattaya. While under quarantine they were unable to leave their rooms, checked daily for their medical status and given several tests for the Covid19 Coronavirus. They are not exposed to the general population of Pattaya.
The group originally numbered 168, however one had previously tested positive for the Covid19 Coronavirus and was transported to a hospital earlier in the quarantine. This case was already counted at the national level as an imported case.
The quarantined individuals are to return directly to their home province under the notification of local leaders and medical volunteers and are asked to continue safe hygiene practices and immediately report to a hospital if found sick.
Pattaya has eight hotels serving as state quarantine centers currently. All are under guard twenty four hours a day according to authorities and staff utilize the strictest precautions when interacting with those in quarantine. Patients are to go directly home after being released and not allowed to go into the Pattaya area unless they are a Chonburi resident.
