Aaah you sure got me there buddy. Yep, I didn’t bring my own hand gel. That’s why I’ve got it all wrong and airport staff are actually doing their utmost best at stopping more potentially infected people from getting through. They’re all taking their job very VERY seriously. I’m a fool and all the precautions are actually being followed through by the airport staff. Oh and the PM really does have it all under control. 

 

Tell me, are you the type of guy who brings his own cutlery to a restaurant? Because let me tell you, there’s nothing worse than the arrogant, know it all, so called experienced eater, long time restaurant visitor or lurker who doesn’t PACK AND USE HIS OWN BLOODY CUTLERY. Or his own airbag/seatbelt when getting in a car. Or his own arrival form. Or the myriad number of things that should be commonplace in certain situations. 

 

No I did not have the forethought to bring my own gel. You know who else didn’t? Literally everybody in the airport at the time. It’s the job of staff in public places to appropriately prepare such items. You know, like in a HOSPITAL?

Did your plain land at a hospital ?????? If you go to a restaurant you expect there to be knives forks etc . If you drive a car , you expect it to have a stearing wheel seatbelt etc IF YOU GO TO AN AIRPORT YOU EXPECT THERE TO BE SOMEBODY TO CHECK YOUR PASSPORT THAT'S IT, OR DO YOU EXPECT SOMEONE TO WAIT TO PICK UP YOUR SUITCASE GO THREU PASSPORT CONTROLE TAKE A TAXI AND SPEND YOUR HOLLIDAY TIME FOR YOU WHILE YOU STAY AT THE AIRPORT WAIT FOR THIS PERSON TO COME BACK CHECK IN YOUR LUGGAGE AND GIVE YOU YOUR BOARDINGPASS SO YOU CAN FLY BACK TO WHEREVER YOU CAME FROM . LOOKS LIKE YOUR A PERSON THAT WAITS FOR SOMEONE TO COME CLEAN THEIR ... AFTER THEY FINISH TAKING A .... MAYBE YOU SHOULD BE BRINGING YOUR MOMMY NEXT TIME .

In short, there's not a chance in hell they are going to contain this thing. I advise everyone to plan accordingly.

"Who say that?"

I'm not taking sides here ... can see some merit in in the original post and in some of those who have reacted so ... enthusiastically.

 

... but a tiny point ... it's really difficult to carry bottles of ANYTHING on flights ... i can't recall seeing hand sanitizer packaged in small enough bottles to get past the scanners.

 

My plan is to re-pack some sanitizer into a 100ml bottle for my flight into Don Muaeng this weekend and hope nobody asks me to explain what's in it ... my Thai is limited to sawaddi-khrup and kop-kun-khrup ... and i haven't got the time or spare brain cells to memorise the Thai for "Good morning officer, It's hand sanitizer that i took out of a big bottle and put into this little bottle''*

 

* อรุณสวัสดิ์เจ้าหน้าที่มันเป็นเจลทำความสะอาดมือที่ฉันหยิบขวดใหญ่ออกมาแล้วใส่ลงไปในขวดเล็ก ๆ นี้ according to Google

There are small bottles of hand sanitizer sold . Its like a small spray bottle not much bigger then a lighter .

You have to take your own precautions....they never will.

I carry a small 75ml spray bottle of isopropyl alcohol.

N95 mask only used in densely packed spaces or high risk areas...

packed subway carriage etc.

As for learning disinfectant in Thai - sure, I’ll do that if you willing teach it to the millions of potentially infected Chinese visitors coming here AND get them to ask for it.

Chinese already have it. It's the Chinese who are dying, no-one else. They're prepared. You werent.

 

Runny nose doesn't mean you are infected.

A large portion of the visiting population in this place comes to areas where bodily fluids are exchanged with multiple persons per evening. I don't think hand sanitizers are gonna cut it. Or are we pretending Chinese go to pattaya for the beaches? 

I thought the OP was about Coronavirus and how to take precautions while traveling ?

 

What happens here is a different matter altogether and people should protect themselves appropriately.

Did the OP bother to buy and wear his own mask? Didn't mention it anywhere. Or is that only required if you're a snotty, grotty Asiatic sort?

A total dingbat if you ask me!

Don't panic. Many people in Thailand are worrying about the coronavirus. The probability of getting infected is 1000.000 times less than to get infected by a mosquito (aedes aegypti = dengue or aedes anopheles = malaria) or to have a fatal accident. You can kiss or having sex with your partner without fear. The most important precautious action is to wash your hands very often. Hands are the most contagious parts of your body. Take care for yourself, don't blame others. The status for the medical judgement is not different from a normal flu.

All the stats are being updated in real time on WeChat. The ones inside China anyway.

 

I think it's about 80 people outside China so they'll have to monitored in the coutrl they're in.
