One-day quarantine in Mae Sot needed for Myanmar MoU workers

18

Health workers are making preparations to test Myanmar workers for Covid-19 on the Myanmar-Thai border.

Starting on 4 July, Myanmar workers with the MOU system, who are going through the Myawady-Mae Sot No (2) friendship bridge to Thailand for work in the past, need to stay for a day in the Mae Sot quarantine centre.
Instead of testing COVID-19 on the bridge as before, the health examination process is moved to Malkuluam village near Mae Sot where the quarantine centre is located. The Thai government announced MOU workers need a day of quarantine in the centre near the village.
Previously, MOU workers, who entered from the Myawady-Mae Sot No (2) friendship bridge, were tested for COVID-19, prepared for paperwork and delivered directly to the factories and workplaces as per the contract without any quarantine by officials from Mae Sot.
MOU workers need to enter one-day quarantine but have some difficulties as some agencies ask K1.7 million for service fees in addition to 6,000 Thai baht for one-day quarantine at present. — TWA/GNLM
