Bangkok quarantine for people returning from foreign trips

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) will set up a local COVID-19 quarantine center to screen people returning to Thailand from foreign countries. The center can accommodate 700 people, reported yesterday (April 5, 2020).

The center is responsible for health services, screening people with high fever and register people on quarantine. Local officials are on hand to secure safety, provide clean accommodation, food and necessities, and fire prevention around the clock.
