Recommended Posts

For these time now upon yous... 

BJ if still in place; would have been the only Official with the GetUp&Go to have done something proactive about the whole problem with the Chinese, & be the only brave enough stand up against the e$tablishment.

What an insult....yesterday it was all waïs-prosternations-garlands and today it's go back from where you came from....well of course it's the right thing to do, but very insulting to the picky sensitive Chinese who will further boycott Thailand once the outbreak is contained. Bootlicking the Chinese in the first place was a wrong move...they should have rather betted on the big spending Indians....and encourage the europeans to come back with special "tourist THB exchange rates"....

They are doing the right right thing. Chinese are their only hope. Other nationalities know they are not welcome and may die in IDC. How heads would roll if a Chinese died in IDC. Everyone else are 2nd Class citizens. how can anyone not but admire the Chinese consular Director. A  be

I don't know if anyone else has picked up on it but one source of info on YouTube has put it out there earlier today that the R# is now 4.  If that is true every Chinese traveller that has been in contact with someone from Wohan, who may also be a traveller, can possibly infect 4 other people.  Do the math. 4. 16. 128. 256. 1024. 4096. 16384. If it isn't contained we can be in for a bad time.

R0 is the average that's used in a mathematical model. Somebody like the Thai taxi driver or the patient in Chiang Mai's hospital general ward could have infected dozens. It's not a constant, but varies according to countermeasures and the population density. Obviously it will drop to zero if everybody is already infected.

"Considering"? That sounds a little strong. Let's organise an action committee and hold a series of meetings.

Good idea stop Visa on arrival a .person applying for a visa should produce a certificate of health when applying for one. No certificate no visa..

South Korea, North Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, Vietnam, Philippines, Hong Kong, India, and Taiwan all have some sort of ban on Chinese. Some a complete ban.
 

Thailand and Cambodia are on their knees servicing them in true Thai / Khmer fashion. 
 

They will pay the price for this.

I can agree with your sentiment.

Nothing about this  virus indicates any more and maybe less  danger to populations health than any existing variety of endemic or  potentially endemic disease.

But advantage is  being taken in  various ways while ignoring  equal or greater  humanitarian crisis elsewhere that have  no political or financial priority.

 

 

Very fitting username.

Today from the NYT:

Wuhan Coronavirus Looks Increasingly Like a Pandemic, Experts Say

 

The Wuhan coronavirus spreading from China is now likely to become a pandemic that circles the globe, according to many of the world’s leading infectious disease experts.
 

The prospect is daunting. A pandemic — an ongoing epidemic on two or more continents — may well have global consequences, despite the extraordinary travel restrictions and quarantines now imposed by China and other countries, including the United States.
 

Scientists do not yet know how lethal the new coronavirus is, however, so there is uncertainty about how much damage a pandemic might cause. But there is growing consensus that the pathogen is readily transmitted between humans.
 

The Wuhan coronavirus is spreading more like influenza, which is highly transmissible, than like its slow-moving viral cousins, SARS and MERS, scientists have found. “It’s very, very transmissible, and it almost certainly is going to be a pandemic,” said Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease. “But will it be catastrophic? I don’t know.”
