Singapore mandates state-quarantine for Thais but not other harder-hit countries

The Singaporean government has mandated that all Thai arrivals to the city-state must undergo 14-day mandatory state quarantine before being allowed into the city.

Singapore, which has 45,298 cases, said that Thais must serve their “Stay-Home Notice” at dedicated government SHN facilities.

However, arrivals from China (83,581 cases), Germany (198,765 cases), and Japan (20,174), among other countries, will only need to be tested upon arrival and do not have to carry out their SHN in government facilities.

Thailand was not included in a list of exemptions despite having only 3,197 cases.
