Immigration Police join efforts at airports to prevent spread of Wuhan virus

Recommended Posts

The way things stand I am pretty right up here in the sticks.......unless some one back home turns up their toes......or one of the girls who is expecting drops a premmy.

It's better than nothing

but unfortunately pretty useless

the virus can be undetected on someone during few days

and still the person is contagious. The only way is to ban all the

arrivals from China. but they are afraid of the financial losses

 

I tend to agree with your overall comment. But doing what they're doing is not entirely useless. They will, hopefully, catch those who are showing symptoms. But obviously, they won't catch those not yet showing symptoms...

 

So for me, the authorities doing something is better than nothing. Every one with symptoms that they do intercept is one less wandering around Thailand with the potential to spread the virus.

if it goes off (like in china) i'd expect anyone who can to escape the cities to head back to their family villages before they close them off

I don't get it

should be an out dated news or?

My understanding was Wuhan airports was already closed and no plane 

could take off from this area,particularly for tourist purpose?

Nobody told the boss of Immigration yet about Wuhun airport. The man whose job it is , on holidays.

Ok the mask & gloves may protect the IO. But he'll be passing on the droplets he caught on his gloves from the passport right to the next one.

 

Only solution I can think of is wear disposable safety gear when interacting with an IO and get rid of it ASAP afterwards.

Right, and how they can manage for taking the fingerprints?

They don't clean the glass after each traveller, it should be a huge 

transmission way for the virus

Immigration officers can wear the masks and hide behind screens but passengers have to remove masks to be photographed and have to touch a fingerprint reader touched by tens of thousands of others previously, including Chinese nationals coming directly from the country where the outbreak started...

 

Hope those billion dollar biometrics were worth it, hey, they might even be the cause of a massive pandemic.

This is true .

But the financial losses will be much bigger if they let them in , ( even a person in apparently good health can transmit the virus ...) , and than there is a mayor outbreak in Thailand . NOBODY will come to visit Thailand anymore .

Malaysia refuses ALL flights/transport from Wuhan, planes underway will be sent back. Mongolia closes ALL borders with China.

Good call from them. Will be very hard to enforce though.

Pol Colonel Cherngron Rimphadee, deputy spokesman of Immigration Police, said: “We have assigned separate bays for planes arriving from Wuhan and Guangzhou to screen infected travellers at Suvarnabhumi, Don Mueang, Phuket and Chiang Mai international airports,” he said.

Profit, profit, profit profit.... take the quick buck now while you can, hat's your MO

but wait for the huge losses yet to come when this outbreak is well and truly established in Thailand.

Managers and commanders must monitor their subordinates’ condition and alert medical staff immediately if they display abnormality.

Enforce an hourly cleanup of passenger screening areas, including the passport checking booths, form filling counters, as well as equipments that have direct contact with passengers, with disinfectant and alcohol spray.

Shouldn't they have been doing this anyway?  As a standard precaution, even in non-emergencies? It appears not.
