The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand is requiring travelers from Covid-19 infected countries and territories to undergo thermal-body scans and produce medical certificates prior to boarding their flights to Thailand to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.
As more and more countries ramp up their fight against the COVID-19 coronavirus, people are being subjected an ever-increasing scrutiny and denial of their freedom to move about as they wish. Whole nations like Italy are being declared a quarantine zone, with more nations about to do the same. In Thailand, travelers must produce medical certificate papers in addition to a thermal body scan which not only scans by records what it sees. Some are even calling for people to stop using cash, and at this point, I think we can figure out what’s really going on.
Remember when the World Trade Center Twin Towers came down? I sure do, and regardless of what you think is the reason as to how they came down, one thing is not in dispute. That event was used as an excuse to pass the draconian Patriot Act which permanently limited freedoms of the average America, and gave our government unprecedented and nearly unlimited power. Could it be that the hype over the COVID-19 coronavirus like we see here in Thailand is to accomplish the same purpose? COVID-19 has George Soros and the New World Order written all over it.
Medical certificate and thermal body scan needed before flying
FROM BANGKOK POST: Transport Minister Saksayam Chidchob said on Monday the CAAT has issued an official announcement, saying travellers from South Korea, China, Italy, Iran, Macau and Hong Kong who fail to show their health certificates to authorities before boarding their flights to Thailand will not be allowed to continue their journey.
The restrictions are in line with Thailand’s Communicable Diseases Act 2015, the minister said.
Upon arriving at Thai airports, they must present their health certificate along with a filled-out T8 form to disease control officials for verification, said Mr Saksayam. According to the minister, anyone found producing fake certificates to Thai health authorities will face legal action and mandatory quarantine.
Mr Saksayam also assured that Suvarnabhumi airport, as Thailand’s main international gateway, has put strict screening measures in place to help curb the spread of the disease from air travellers. He also insisted that to date, airport officials assigned to screen passengers have not shown any fever and/or other symptoms. Withaya Yamuang, director-general of the Marine Department, on Monday also applied similar rules to boat passengers and crews from Covid-19 affected countries and territories.
“Boat passengers and crew will be required to provide health certificates to enter Thailand, and they will also be subjected to the country’s quarantine regulations,” Mr Withaya said. In addition, boat captains must submit necessary documents to disease control authorities 24 hours prior to docking, he said.
The documents include the maritime declaration of health, a list of 10 ports they had just visited, crew and passenger manifest and the results of their body temperature checks over the past week. Violators are liable to fines of between 1,000 and 10,000 baht.
As of Monday, Thai officials had confirmed 50 local cases of Covid-19. Thirty-three people have recovered, 16 patients are still in hospitals while one has died.
The latest confirmed case involves a Thai student who recently returned from Iran. Officials in Nakhon Si Thammarat have identified 157 people who came in close contact with the infected student. Their blood samples were being tested, but some of them had already left Thailand.
Another 4,518 people have been placed under observation. Of them, 2,729 has been cleared or recovered. Most of them had seasonal influenza, he said.
In another development, health authorities and local officials in Nakhon Pathom’s Muang district, on Monday raided a hotel where a group of 32 Chinese tourists were staying, following tip-offs from netizens on social media which sparked worries among local residents.
After the raid, officers found that the Chinese tourists were employees of a private firm, who travelled from China’s Zhejiang province. All were found to be in good health. READ MORE
