Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul insisted that only about 20,000 Chinese from Wuhan city had entered Thailand during the period. That's a lot of possible carriers walking around the country. For the govt. to state that only 14 have shown symptoms is total BS....

While at it, add to the visa requirements that Chinese must stay under quarantine for two weeks at swampy before allowed to enter. That should do it.

If they come from a shut down area in chins where will they apply for a visa?

Or if the Thai embassy/consulate is closed, where then?

A serious question: I normally get 6 to 10 parcels a month from Aliexpress sellers. Should I be using bleach to clean the packages and contents when I  open from now on?

Very unlikely anything would survive on the surfaces. Won't hurt of course, who knows what other hazardous chemicals Chinese product are covered with.
