The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, along with partnership from the Ministry go Public Health, have provided an update this weekend on the number of people who have entered Thailand so far under repatriation measures.
The Spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Director-General of the Department of Information, Cherdkiat Atthakor, told Associated press that although many Thai Nationals remain overseas and many foreigners have applied to re-enter the country, the process is moving along more quickly (but still safely) due to more quarantine locations.
He also said that the ministry of foreign affairs was providing assistance to those stranded overseas with lack of finances and prioritizing those to return along with the elderly and infirm.
A total of 69,764 Thais from 97 countries have returned since operations began on April 4, with 14,080 making it back this month alone.
Certificates of Entry (COE) have been provided to 5,700 foreigners conforming to the 11 categories indicated by the state. All have been required to follow state regulations and undergo a 14-day quarantine.
