Thailand has set up a COVID-19 testing laboratory inside Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport. It’s thought to be the first in Southeast Asia. The lab will analyse swab tests on-site. Once foreigners are approved to come into Thailand for business on a short-term stay for less than seven days, they will have to go through a swab test at Suvarnabhumi after touching down. Each test will cost them US$100. The lab, a permanent fixture in the airport, can be used as a testing facility for other diseases like Ebola and MERS or other new emerging viruses in the future.
