The government is considering suspending the visa on arrival facility for Chinese tourists due to the outbreak of coronavirus in Wuhan, Minister of Public Health Anutin Charnvirakul said on Thursday (January 30).

That's the Thai master plan????

Anutin is so far out of touch he's in a league of his own, health minister they call him!!!!!

Suspending all of the Chinese would make more sense......

YOU CAN HAVE THE VIRUS AND NOT SHOW SYMPTOMS. 

 

How difficult is it for these people to understand what is going on? 
 

Cancel all visas. No exceptions. Or pay the price.

Did you ever try to teach a Thai anyone else would understand ? YOU CAN'T !

A mistake that the Chinese HAVE repeated this time. When this virus was revealed in early December, China arrested the 8 doctors who reported it as spreading false news, and bringing China into disrepute. It wasn't until the cases started increasing that China reluctantly revealed it!

 

There is an excellent article in the New York Times on this subject. Worth reading.

 

And I am a Brit who doesn't usually like what the USA does. This article is very interesting.

Agree with you on that article, very revealing. Sad but true and in part, why we are where we are now and where we are heading.

I read something quite to the contrary today. I can not post it here as not sure if allowed. But I will PM you the article if you wish.

By comparison to the initial denial and failure to inform even it's own medical authorities of the SARS outbreak this time the reaction has been faster. Unlike an outbreak of a known  disease such as  measles or  chicken pox which is quickly identifiable if a cluster of people present with a new strain of a virus with flu like symptoms it is inevitable that it will take time to recognize it as  such unfortunately only because it demonstrates the  ability to kill quickly without hospital/medical intervention. Information and identification obviously is initiated due to the cluster of  deaths and pathology separating it  from the background of other "normal" infections such as  seasonal influenza. If this  new  virus was not potentially lethal at all it  could exist for a  long time with  no urgent cause to identify it.

Chinese government will not blame you if you shut it down. Kim jong an is so friendly with China, he Shutted down as well.

Out of the confirmed cases in China, more than 1200 are considered to be in a critical condition (according to Thailand's own official report). The situation is serious and I hope someone understands this in the gov, this is not just a flu.

 

In Thailand here's what today's report states: since the beginning 44 lab tests came back negative, 14 positives, 144 still waiting for results. 27 people are currently in isolation rooms.

Not just a flu, over 50,000 americans have contacted the flu so far this year and over 800 have died ehat you are thinking the flu no big deal
