Yes. At the airport, train stations, bus stations in Wuhan.

what about the ones driving to nearby provinces/cities and get into the planes/trains/bus for better traveling deals, how they control them.... my in laws in Hunan, yesterday, told us they have 5-6 in their city hospital, they were driving when they felt sick.... great control they have

If he hasn’t recently been to Wuhan, the virus is now present in Thai livestock or it’s transmitted from person to person which considering the high infection rate being reported in China seems unfortunately to be the case, if he has the new corona virus that is. 

I think fake story.

The only reports so far are from the Sun, Mirror and Daily Mail. Anyone seen this confirmed by a media source with any credibility? 

Not in Thai news.

 

They check Wuhan people in Phuket airport for the problem.

So far... there's no evidence of human to human transmission for this virus. And WHO has, thus far, specifically advised against any travel restrictions.

 

the same WHO that also advised for no travel restrictions after the 2018 ebola epidemic outbreak in Congo.... maybe WHO is financed by the big pharmaceutical/labs companies..... btw, BBC reporter did say there was evidence of human to human transmission. The Chinese originally claimed 21 people infected, 12 returned home, 1 dead, the remaining balance? no comment, couple days later they said it was 49 infected, yesterday they said 138 or 139....BBC health reporter claimed there are more then 1,700 people infected one way or another, since China has so many people, this later number appear to be more accurate but I can't confirm it, knowing China because lived there for 12 years, no way Chinese government will tell the truth, there's no way, if they do it will create panic, they do provide information on the government news TV but barely no details, coverage is very short and lacks information, they speak about it the same way they speak about the rain or the snow

Ya, I wasn't arguing the no HtoH part is conclusively known or confirmed... just that that remains WHO's current assessment. Time will tell...

An impressive response from the medical services. 
 

Its good to see this response rather than ‘no insurance no hospital’ type approach... 

 

Even in unfortunate circumstances it’s good to see Thailand in a positive light in the news for a change.

Well, he has insurance and also a gofundme.

Hope all generously donate to his cause.

Seems there was a further update from the Thai MoPH on last Friday...

 

https://ddc.moph.go.th/viralpneumonia/eng/file/declaration/declaration_170163.pd

 

https://ddc.moph.go.th/viralpneumonia/eng/declaration.html

 

From January 3-16, 2020, among 86 flights, 13,624 passengers and crew members have been screened, and 21 patients met the criteria for investigation. Most of the cases have been found to be infected with influenza virus, and 12 cases recovered and were allowed to return home.

 

There are two confirmed cases who have been treated in an isolation ward at Bamrasnaradura Infectious Disease Institute. The first confirmed case has recovered and has no fever. The case is currently waiting for confirmation that she is no longer infectious, upon which the doctor will then allow the patient to go home. The same protocol applies to the second confirmed case who is being treated and has been monitoring for further confirmation of no viremia before returning to home.

 

Among the 16 close contacts of the first confirmed case and the 20 close contacts of the second confirmed case, the novel coronavirus has not been found.
