Authorities are intensifying Covid-19 screening in Thai airports after the virus's 'highly immune-evasive' XBB strain was detected in the country.

The Thai health ministry issued the directive following two passengers testing positive for the rapidly spreading variant.

The World Health Organization said XBB - an offshoot of the Omicron strain - has shown immunity to current vaccines and is the most evasive Covid variant to date.

It has already been found in at least 26 countries, the organisation said.
