Infected people are arriving from China, should they close the borders to the Chinese?

Seems a pointless exercise, as you have no say nor influence in this country unless you are a Thai national.

 

 

 

It's an opinion poll, we all know what we think won't have any bearing upon what happens. That's why they're called opinion polls. I for one am interested in what others think.

I see, so according to you, although some water entered through the top hatch of the conning tower (submarine) we should not bother closing or sealing it as we dive. 

 

We should drown.

 

Does that sum it up?

 

i hope you will forgive me if i respond to this metaphoric submersion with a haiku:

we will never drown

as long as we keep

our submarines on dry land

They're NOT allowed to. 

Xi hasn't given them permission!

Closing stable door after horse has bolted.

I don't understand.

Many think it was pig or birds at the wet market in Wuhan; some one else thinks it was horsemeat? Horse is pretty good eating I read on the internet. But like Abe Lincoln said "don't believe all you read on the internet".

Close the door with China ok but since the virus is now in other countries you'd have to close those doors too.

too little too late, Thailand had the opportunity of doing Pro active measures by controlling/stopping/restricting the arrival of Chinese citizens, unfortunately (here in Thailand) money talks louder then people health concerns and they kept let them (Chinese) coming, now they are trying the reactive measures but the "cat" is already out and about

Let's just see how many of those 40 possible cases turn positive.   Hopefully all.  AMD hopefully we dont get and new human to human cases in Thailand  from this initial batch.

It's ALREADY too late.

 

Here are a couple of things (obviously this is about SARS, which is 1 protein different from current Wuhan corona virus, so probably same things apply):

- SARS can survive up to 6 hours in human faeces, up to 4 days in diarrhoea

- SARS showed only minimal reduction when kept in sub-zero temperature (like a fridge)

- SARS could be effectively killed by disinfectants like chlorine bleach, within 5 minutes

- SARS could also be killed by UV light, where 264 nm was especially effective, killing off viruses in seconds

 

As said, although this is for SARS, the strains are near identical so above is probably true for current virus as well.

 

EDIT: I should provide links as well:

Well supported report, Op!

    It should have been done before but just because it wasn't done before does not mean it shouldn't be done now.  The virus is still spreading and now China has announced that it can be spread during the incubation period.

The virus is already here, closing the borders won't help.

It will help , if you have a flood and you have a way to stop the rest of the water to come in , would you just let the floodgates open ???? Little bit strange post in my mind .

using your way of thinking you can only close the floodgates IF you know that the flood is coming. You cannot see this virus coming so you cannot close the floodgates as you claim. With this virus how long ago did the very first person contract this virus? Nobody knows. This virus could have started anything up to 6 months ago and it has all that time to flood other countries. Remember that it has an incubation period which does not show any symptoms and then it only shows a normal flu symptom which is already rampant in the US for years. It is not until the symptoms start to cause other medical problems like pneumonia that it is linked to this virus. How many people have contracted this virus that have traveled out of China in the last 6 months. It is too late for the floodgates

Someone has just sent me a copy of a communication from a friend in China. According to this there are tens of thousands of people affected by the coronavirus, quite a different number to what the government are letting on.
