Four Thai nationals who flew to Thailand from New Zealand this week have been taken to hospital with high fevers, prompting Covid-19 fears.

The travellers had a health screening at Bangkok Airport after their Thai Airways flight TG492 arrived from Auckland on Wednesday, according to the Bangkok Post .

Two other passengers on board were Kiwis, one of which has shared an update on Twitter. 

Wayne Hay last night said he has had the first of two Covid-19 tests and that so far his temperature has remained normal.

All passengers on board the flight have been taken to a hotel to go into quarantine.

It comes as New Zealand works to tighten up quarantine and managed isolation protocols following a number of mishaps.

Two women who arrived from the UK were confirmed to have Covid-19 this week. They had left quarantine for compassionate exemption reasons, but weren't tested before leaving.
