"Stop this covid 19 import" Kurt,so you would like to see every Thai citizen and foreigner being banned from entering Thailand. How long ? Until there is a vaccine ? Unbelievable !

Did this returning people having a 'fit to travel' certificate, provided by thai London Officials? It seems such document has lesser value than paper it is written on. How many people were infected during return flight we will learn later, probably not? By now we know that many return travels to Thailand bring back a lot Covid-19 infected Thai people. Stop this Covid-19 import.
