BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand's public health ministry reported seven new cases of the coronavirus on Saturday, including three Thais and four Chinese.

 

The new cases brought the total reported in the country to 32, among the world's highest number of infections outside of China.

 

"The seven new cases are all in hospital," said Suwannachai Wattanayingcharoenchai, director-general of the Disease Control Department.

 

One of the Thai cases was part of the group of 138 evacuated from China's coronavirus epicentre of Wuhan on Tuesday, Suwannachai told reporters.

 

The other two Thais had exposure to tourists, he said.

 

Among the four Chinese, three are members of the families of previously reported cases, while the other is a tourist from a "risky area" in China, said Suwannachai.

 

Among the 32 cases Thailand has reported so far, 23 are Chinese while nine are Thais.

 

As of Saturday, one more patient was allowed to go home, bringing the count of discharges to 10, said Suwannachai.

 

Twenty-two other patients remain in hospital, he said.

The point is,  you can not stop living to avoid death.   The show must go on. 

 

The bad guys are all going to their deep underground bases.    They will come out when it is over.    Be waiting for them when they emerge.
