A kind Thai forum user has posted (translated) Swiss embassy advice about the possibility of foreigners in Thailad being forced into expensive hospital or hotel quarantine should they test positive for covid.

1. According to the Thai emergency decree, everybody who has a positive Covid test is required to inform the health authorities. Failure to do so can result in a fine up to 20K Baht.

2. People who are positive can be put in Quarantine in ASQ (alternative state quarantine) on their own cost. Refusal to go into quarantine can be punished with up to 2y in jail and 40K Baht fine.

3. People with severe symptoms will be sent to a Hospital. The Thai health authorities can decide whether to send the people into a field hospital or a "hospitel" (communal quarantine places).

4. People with no or light symptoms can be allowed to quarantine at home, only if

- they are less than 65y old
- they have no existing health problems that would put them on high risks
- they have a place to stay that is suitable for quarantine.

5. The Swiss Embassy is aware that some condo management companies have denied isolation in the condo block due to the risk for the other residents, in which case, the health authorities would then order the quarantine in a ASQ hotel, hospital or hospitel.

A positive covid test or covid contact may lead to expensive incarceration in hospital with health insurance refusing to payout on the grounds that you are not actually in need of medical treatmant

Insurance in Thailand can be a nightmare at the best of times with the chances of a payout often being very remote indeed. But now in covid times Thailand's mandatory quarantine in state facilities even when not actually in need of treatment leads to a horror show.

But there is worse, the worthless insurance that you have to buy to get an entry may be deemed insufficient for the immigration police checking your papers on arrival. So what do you do then?

Well the Thai authorities have now set up a facility to buy sufficient worthless insurance to get you in to the country should you be pulled up at the border.

The Ministry of Tourism and Sports and the Office of the Insurance Commission invited 10 insurance firms to sell COVID-19 insurance policies to the visitors who lacked such insurance coverage as they arrive.
