Its of the utmost importance to STOP any and all travel to china directly and not allow any conecting from china flights here. What possible other fix is there? Still chasing tourist numbers? Hope not!

They really don't know how to spot an opportunity, they could buy a ton of overpriced stuff with tax payers money to "fight the virus" and get the usual kickback. This would be great for PR and their wallet.

Here are a few suggestions for starting:

- Face masks

- Alcohol hand gel

- Quarantine equipment

- Ambulances

- More screening equipment

Better off going on TV and educating the population properly... a WHO official or viral scientist outlining dos and donts and put it out on all channels... 

 

Be good if the king were to make an appeal for the Thai people to prepare and rise to the crisis with calm and support of each other and the nation...reassurance goes a long way. 

 

Cancel all trips to and from China, immediately start training the medical staff on protocols along with the police and army and prepare to shutdown all major meeting points such as Cinemas, exhibition centers, large markets etc... its going to ramp up imo so best get on with preparing asap.... 

 

Then i woke up ...........

The thermal cameras are at the entrance to immigration hall. Surely they could be manned and monitor ALL incoming passengers. Thermal cameras aren't expensive and AOT could afford to buy more and cover every area of airport with them like they do with CCTV cameras. Software to trigger alerts when it sees something bad should already exist.

Thermal can help in detection but unfortunately this virus can be carried without any symptoms, high temperature etc.

This is the PERFECT time to get on public television and radio to teach the entire nation on proper hygiene, precautionary measures to limit risk of transmitting virus, etc... they have a reason to listen; FEAR. 3-4 days ago, nobody would have cared.
