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.

Which should be suspended for the time being until the virus is under control and China can prove the flights are safe.

But I know T.A.T would not approve of such a measure, profits from Chinese New Year and arrival figures are more important than health issues.

Another UK tabloid. Tomorrows chip wrapper we said in the days of newspapers being an entity.

 

Correct on the death toll, 'up to' means they don't know how many infected. It's around 473 as of last night.

598 as of this morning

Well China has now put a complete lockdown on travel to, from and inside Wuhan province. Planes, trains, buses and even subways have been stopped to contain the virus. 

But they have not stopped the cars

Wuhan has now been closed down with all transport shut off after several deaths over night, maybe Thailand needs to stop travelers at the border to do health checks etc as well to avoid this from becoming a major problem in Thailand but that would ruin their tourist numbers. Just maybe they need to place the populations health and well being above making money and getting tourists but I highly doubt it

But what about the money they bring in

Yes, I was in conversation with five Chinese earlier this morning. That is what they said. Some have relatives in Wuhan and have been on WeChat almost continuously. They said the word is it was snakes and spiders.

I just hope 'some' countries don't start putting more flights into and out of China through other major city airports in China.

At some point panic will set in and all hell will let loose. The internet is a great device for amplifying paranoia exponentially. If the virus don't gets you then the panic buying and hysteria may well do so. So far only the ill and the very old need to be worried so that is most TVF users safe and sound. But since most don't go out and sit hunched over their computers my advice would be....

 

get masks plenty of them

get hand gel lots of it

stock up with loads of bottled water , tinned goods , crackers and the like.

 

when you go out wear the mask and only make essential trips

avoid crowded places particularly those frequented by Chinese

on return scrub up well paying particular attention to your hands and shower before returning to the internet for updates. 

watch the movie Contagion - which is wholly based on scientific evidence.

I think this should be added here:

Chinese told to comply with airport coronavirus checks after woman ‘evaded’ screening in France

  • Embassies urge citizens to follow instructions after traveller from Wuhan posts on social media that she took medicine to bring down her temperature
  • Passenger has been contacted and asked to call French emergency hotline
