Over 137,000 visitors have come under 'Test & Go' since Feb 1


The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) on Monday refuted rumours of the “Test & Go” scheme allowing foreigners into the country being paused, with spokesperson Apisamai Srirangsan saying the scheme was going on as usual.

Under the Test & Go scheme, 137,090 people had entered the country from February 1-20, and 3,495 people had tested positive for Covid-19, or 2.55 per cent of the total.

The public health system and measures used are still supportive and available, Dr Apisamai said.

"Even if it is a tourist coming from a European country that has relaxed virus preventive measures, they still have to follow the measures of the Thai public health system when they come to Thailand,​" she said.
