Thailand to allow in Chinese fruit traders as it eases COVID lockdown

Yesterday, Thailand's Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) announced that it has decided to allow Chinese fruit traders to enter Thailand, as the nation inches towards 80 days free of COVID-19 local transmission.

CCSA spokesman Taweesin Visanuyothin also said that the CCSA panel has also agreed to allow Chinese traders to return to Thailand to buy Thai fruits for export, in order to help Thai farmers. "However, the Chinese travellers will be subject to strict Covid-19 screening upon arrival and will have to go through 14 days mandatory quarantine at their own expense," said Dr Taweesin.

According to straitstimes.com¸ Dr Taweesin said the panel will seek approval for these changes from the CCSA, chaired by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, at a meeting scheduled for Aug 21.
