Thai govt considering suspension of visa on arrival for visitors from China

Recommended Posts

The Chinese are the least of your concerns now. Good luck tracking down everybody that taxi driver who caught it was in contact with. Should of shut out the Chinese the over a week ago.

True and that is also why all the people comparing this to the Flu and saying it is nothing, should sit back and think a bit.

 

The danger in this is not so much the amount of people that die, but the many people who need medical care and get critically ill. Many people with other deceases, will also die due to lack of treatment and ressources.

Wuhan is a clear example of what will happen, when this gets out of hand. Thailand has not yet realised this and it is already too late here. The outbreak is a reality in Thailand and MANY more infected will show up. 

Indeed. Which is why I'm saying it's a good idea to wear the mask: chances are high we all will get this virus at a time or another, but you really, really don't want to get it at the same time everybody else is also at the hospital. Anything that gets you over the first waves makes sense.

African students in China are struggling to find food and supplies in the coronavirus lockdown

If a lockdown turns into a siege, what will happen is the inhabitants will simply break out. Then we'll see if the commies are true to their blood and will meet them with machine guns. The result would probably be deadlier than the virus.

WHO modelling and previous pandemics have both shown restricting air travel delays the spread of pandemics by a short amount of time, would not actually stop the disease from getting to any particular country, and would have minimal impact on the magnitude of the pandemic.

"It's completely clear from empirical evidence from pandemic influenza that reducing air travel has an incredibly minor effect on the ultimate spread of diseases like this,"

But in one of the recent videos I saw there, it showed a guy trying to get out of an ambulance, fighting with two guards, and then having one of the guards grab the guy in a headlock and wrestle him back into the ambulance.

I was very surprised to read about something similar in a CNN article: https://edition.cnn.com/2020/01/30/asia/chinese-health-care-virus-intl-hnk/index.html

 

Quote

According to University of Michigan's Gallagher, there is also a lack of health care professionals, in part because of a fear that becoming a doctor or nurse puts them at risk of violence. Last month, a Beijing doctor was fatally stabbed by a patient's relative. The problem is so widespread that China has passed a new law -- which comes into effect later this year -- to protect medical workers.

 

What the actual hell are they thinking attacking doctors?

Active ingredient found against coronavirus

 German researchers have discovered a substance that inhibits various coronaviruses.  The natural product comes from Asia and also has an effect on other dangerous diseases such as Ebola, Lassa or Zika virus.

It's been discovered a while ago.

 

Prof. Grünwaller also states in the article the approval as medicine is still far away.

Facts are of minor importance. This is just a good old hysteria. "virus.....China!!!!!.... AAAAAAAAAAHHHH."

Let authorities and the experts do what they have to do and just chillax everybody...

Both China and Thailand are doing a good job in monitoring and controlling this virus. 

If the usa and the rest of the world cant prevent a yearly influenza epidemic with annually tens of thousands of deaths, stop bitching about Thailand and China.
