By the end of June, the government plans to phase out the provided free state quarantine accommodation facilities for Thai nationals returning from abroad.

Anyway those were proberly not the people you were thinking about...

For sure, Tjampman. I was meaning the ordinary tourist seafarers.

The situation you mention for the Philippinos must have been pretty awful.
