Well, this is reported by 'The Sun' no less who clearly haven't done their homework. High altitude travel is not possible from an island with no airport!

 

SEA PLANE don't need an airport that is why they are called a SEA PLANE init.

That's right. Two Canadian girls died on Phi Phi of suspected phosphine poisoning. But that doesn't lead to pneumonia-like symptoms. Just death and brain lesions.

Unfortunately that is not exactly true. As per this article regarding an earlier incident. 

 

--Thailand tourist's lung tissue 'gone' after mysterious death 
Jill St Onge, one of 2 tourists who died of unknown causes, pathologist says her "lungs were 100 percent congested"

Given the past history of these islands, definitely a possibility, as is coronavirus from China.

The Airbus A380 has a non-stop Phuket Koh Phi Phi flight..... Flying at 10.000m .... who writes this <deleted> seriously?

It must be the vertical take off version of the A380, I heard it was quite popular.

But it will likely not impact the need to bring in more and more tourists from mainland China.  Thailand, along with other SEA countries will become the Petri dish for the next pandemic.  Throw in the ongoing pollution from burning sugar cane and methinks this is the beginning of something horribly bad...

The number of people infected with a new virus in China tripled over the weekend, with the outbreak spreading from Wuhan to other major cities.

There are now more than 200 cases, mostly in Wuhan, though the respiratory illness has also been detected in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen. 

Three people have died. Japan, Thailand and South Korea have reported cases. 

The new strain of coronavirus, which causes a type of pneumonia, can pass from person to person, China confirmed.

It has been confirmed it is being transmitted person to person, so he didn't have to have been in Wuhan recently. Given teh numbers of Chinese tourists arriving for CNY, we are all at risk. Not to be alarmist, but it could develop into a pandemic.

The Chinese Spring festival (the Chinese New Year) is coming up. 400 million people will travel home to their parents during this period. The Chinese government cannot stop this from happening. 

 

This situation could look very different in 2 weeks time (in China anyway)

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. 

It is P to P transmission,  that's the scary part

Right now there is a persistent outbreak of type of flu with bronchitis and associated symptoms lasting for an extended time period (two weeks or more) going on here in Krabi (Koh Phi Phi is located in Krabi Province). 

I don't know the numbers, but many people here have it. The symptoms are not severe but quite persistent.
