As a result of the ban, the Labour Ministry will have to postpone sending Thai workers to Israel under the employment cooperation project between the two countries. Previously, Israel's health ministry had imposed a 14-day house quarantine on visitors from Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong and Macau. Thailand hoped Israel would review the ban after learning about the measures Thailand is taking to contain the virus, and given the good relations between the countries. The TIC project is jointly implemented by the Thai Labour Ministry, Israel and the International Organisation for Migration. Deputy Public Health Minister Sathit Pitutecha said one other Wuhan returnee remained under observation at Chon Buri Hospital.
