Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Health, Anutin Charnvirakul, agreed to review the regulations for the entry of eleven groups of foreigners into the kingdom.
His remark came after a member of an Egyptian military team that stopped at U-Tapao Airport was infected with Covid-19.
During his stay there, he went to a mall. The test was known after he left the country.
Anutin said the next full meeting of the Center for Covid-19 Situation Management (CCSA) would consider 11 categories of foreigners who are allowed to enter Thailand.
He will also discuss this with the Prime Minister in the cabinet.
“We will try to improve some points that have not been strictly enforced,” he said.
When asked if flights from Egypt could be temporarily suspended, he said the State Department should consider more from now on.
The country is returning to normal, but if there is a problem, we are ready to go back to the previous step, he said.
Health officials investigated immediately after finding that the foreign soldiers were infected with the coronavirus.
The flaws will be fixed. The safety of the people is a top priority, Anutin said.
