Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha on Wednesday said that he had ordered the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to quickly organize flights to pick up Thais stranded overseas after a student died of COVID-19 in Egypt.
"Repatriation flights would be provided on an ongoing basis and would bring back tens of thousands of Thai people now waiting to return home from overseas," said Prayut.
A Thai student passed away on Tuesday in a hospital in Cairo due to a lung inflammation caused by the coronavirus, the ministry announced.
The Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) in Thailand said that 325 Thais who returned on a repatriation flight earlier from Egypt, were tested for COVID-19.
Also, three Thai monks at a Buddhist temple in Las Vegas of the United States had been infected with the virus and two of them were taken to hospital and required the use of a respirator, according to the CCSA.
Meanwhile in Uzbekistan, 27 of the Thai workers have been found to be infected with COVID-19, raising concerns amongst other Thais there that they may be contracted with the virus.
