Krabi Applies Proactive Screening for Stranded Tourists on Phi Phi Island

Provincial Public Health Officials have conducted aggressive Covid-19 testing on 274 foreign tourists, stranded on Phi Phi Island in a proactive approach to screen for new coronavirus infections.

It will take two days for medical staff and health officials to collect samples for coronavirus tests to be performed at the laboratory in Krabi hospital.

Meanwhile, Krabi deputy governor met local business operators on Phi Phi Island to assess the relaxation of the lockdown in the future.

The tourist island has been under lockdown since April 10. Entry into and exit from the island is banned by the provincial authorities to curb the spread of the coronavirus outbreak.
