A meeting at the Foreign Ministry on Monday (January 27) will discuss plans to evacuate Thai people from Wuhan in China if the coronavirus situation worsens.

 

The meeting will be attended by Transport ministry officials, Thai Airways and related agencies including the security department. The Rapid Response Centre working group will also take part, and representatives from the Thai Embassy and all Thai consulates in China will participate through video conferencing to discuss the overall situation of the disease and the number of Thai people living in Wuhan.

 

There are less than 100 Thais living in Wuhan. If officials find the situation of the disease spiralling out of control, the Thai government may use military C-130 planes to pick up Thai people stranded in Wuhan immediately. Thai Airways, which is a commercial airline, cannot fly as the Chinese government has closed operations at Wuhan airport.

With the City of Wuhan, and many others "Locked Down " there will be little or no way that any people will be able to leave.

Why are the Thai Authorities wasting time on this issue ?, when there are more important things that need attending to with regard to the potential spread of this Virus.

people will only be allowed to be repatriated from Wuhan when the Virus has been eradicated fully

My heart goes out to those who are stranded in a foreign land. 

Thank you

but the best thing to do is actualy to stay where we are

every travel is a way to spread the risk and also a potential way to be contaminated

all the travels in a reduced space with others people, particularly if it's for hours, are dangerous

Why all the criticism of the Thais when it's what a lot of other countries are doing?

Are you sure of this?

If it's true it's totaly counter productive

Just the usual Thai bashing.

Probably the same reasons as the other nations doing the same thing.

So far reported that the US, France and Japan are doing so. Aussies also considering it, while the UK has told citizens to leave without explaining how as yet.
