SAMUT PRAKAN: One-hundred-and-thirty-eight Thais stranded in Japan by the Covid-19 pandemic returned home on a special flight from Tokyo on Tuesday.
Japan Airlines Flight JL 031 touched down at Suvarnabhumi airport at 2.53pm. The returnees were met by officials from the departments of disease control and defence.
They included a monk and four diplomats. During health screening, 10 of the returnees were found to be feverish, were separated from the group and taken to a hospital for examination.
The rest were taken by buses to Bangkok Center Hotel and Mövenpick Hotel in Bangkok and the H2DO Hotel in Samut Prakan for 14-day quarantine.
