As concern grows about the spread of Wuhan Coronavirus, analysis of flight schedules has shown that the Thai capital, Bangkok, is the top international destination for travellers from the central Chinese city.

 

At least nine people have died in the outbreak of the respiratory virus, with a further 440 cases reported.

 

Travellers from China have been diagnosed with Wuhan Coronavirus in Japan, South Korea, Thailand and the US.

 

As Chinese New Year on 25 January approaches, record numbers of travellers are expected in the region.

 

John Grant of the schedule analysts, OAG, has looked at the number of seats on flights departing from Wuhan in the first three months of 2020. He said: “Nearly 90 per cent of all capacity offered is to other cities in China.

Yes, there is a quarantaine imposed by now over the province of Wuhan, yet it seems that many people from there were already travelling by the time the quarantaine was established. Happy Chinese New Year, though !

He's looking at forward bookings. Y'know, people who have yet to travel.

 

Wuhan is not a province. It's the capital city of Hebei province.

Looking forward to the TAT spin on this.

Why? If the Chinese Government is not telling the truth how would TAT know?

Yes. The entire city is on lockdown as of this morning. It’s probably a lot worse than they are telling the world.

Whatever spin TAT want to put on it, and whatever the Chinese want to say the fact is that the World Health Organisation are deeply involved in it and not from arms length. On the ground. There's representatives at every press conference.

 

It was the WHO who said close the city, and the Chinese closed the city, despite the fact that it's CNY tomorrow.

 

How you can manage to get TAT in the mix I don't know but if that's your axe, feel free to grind it.
