Hua Hin's district chief and mayor joined a large entourage of tourist police and health officials who descended on a popular downtown market to hand out face masks and alcohol gel to guard against coronavirus. 

 

The move came after the eighth person found to have the new deadly virus coming out of China was diagnosed in Hua Hin itself.

Good thing. In respect of the alcohol gel - alcohol alone would be enough 😉

yesterday I went to Market Village in HH with my new girlfriend and we were wearing masks. 

Most employees of various mall businesses were wearing masks.

the mall was busy but not as busy as a normal Sunday based upon it was too easy to find a scooter parking space.

I was looking at everyone on the sidewalks as we rode along for about 5 kms. i would say one in 200 people had masks.

more in the local food markets. friday and saturday night was very slow in bar areas especially for the chinese new year.

we are going to stock up on more water today.

some expats and "white" tourists are wearing masks and so are some chinese tourists that you see in groups.

A lot of uncertainty about what type of mask to wear. Generally in healthcare we wear the N95 or N99 mask that will filter out down to 0.3 microns. These masks were initially instituted for use in Tuberculosis precautions. Any airborne disease we would get our N95 mask tested to be fitted properly to make a perfect seal, otherwise you are still vulnerable. I have now found this reddit thread with a P.H.D. claiming that with Coronavirus actually needs filtration down to 0.12 microns... Just providing this info for those of you to go research for yourself.

Stupid district chief. These masks not help. Need the N95 masks minimum. The virus is so small that these cheap once not help at all. Just same as for pollution. There also need N95

New gf??

Biggest tid bit here.

Would love to know  more.  I'm going to make some assumptions here. I assume this is a salary position night shift mandatory.  Days off when boss takes a  side trip. 

Comes with hot aunt or mom.

Did you "split" the last one or is this just a new addition on top [excuse the pun]?
