so this Chinese person has only had contact with one other person the whole time in Thailand ?   If I was to say what I want to say in response to this article it would be deleted   

Two labs need to confirm, one is Chula, the other one is National Institute of Health, under Ministry of Public Health, spearheaded by "farang go home" Anutin. I'll let others connect the dots as they

And diagnosis backlog unknown. These numbers mean very little when you don't have the capacity or will to do the lab tests.

Gosh...33!! That is almost one in 500,000 people.

 

Anyone know of a safe route that I can follow from my condo to Villa. 

 

I desperately need some Thai made mozzarella for some lasagna. 

 

It's a crisis!

Perhaps they can email it?

Probably running out of room for taking samples they could diagnose, if they had the capacity to do the tests. They are running into hard limits, the numbers just reflect that.

Now we have news of a British criminal with the infection who was in a Thai jail.  He travelled to Britain on a commercial airliner and probably has infected hundreds of other people.    Yes, let the Chinese come to Thailand....what could possibly go wrong!  🙄

So the mortality rate is somewhere between 1% and 3% I gather. Let's say 2%.

 

All us retirees are on average in our 60's+ ( 50 to 80+)

 

We are also the demographic hardest hit by this new Coroana virus, so what do we think the mortality rate is for us? I'll take a stab at 10% though I suppose it could be anywhere between 3% and 15%.

 

Nobody has specified or even discussed  the mortality  rate for the age range most of us retired ex-pats inhabit, but it's not going to be the current lower numbers (1% - 3%) we hear of!

Update: 1.31 pm

 

After a dramatic pincer movement to avoid a person with suspicious foreign features, I managed to get some Thai made mozzarella (90 baht) and, a bonus, I got home without contracting even a cold!

 

Will update later when I have braved the soi to fetch the children from school, that incredibly is still open. 

 

Sky is reporting that Corona Vid ( I think) is now more dangerous than terrorism after someone in Brighton had some sniffles.

 

Stay safe.

Naturally I contacted them before to see if that was possibly; incredibly they said it was not and though they are working on a teleporting facility at Villa , it will not be ready until next week. 

 

Thanks for your concern in these difficult times.

This article says pretty much the same thing:- https://www.straitstimes.com/asia/east-asia/coronavirus-why-hong-kong-doesnt-have-far-more-confirmed-cases-than-singapore

According to CNN's headline thread Taiwan just added Thailand to it's travel advisory. Mingle with the pariahs and you'll become one. Expect more of the same from other countries.

 

https://edition.cnn.com/asia/live-news/coronavirus-outbreak-02-11-20-intl-hnk/index.html

 

'Thailand: Taiwanese authorities raised the travel alert to Thailand to level one, urging people heading there to "adhere to local preventive measures." The country has confirmed 33 coronavirus cases.'

 

It's about time other countries started doing the same

So by 'will' are you suggesting that lab tests which could be performed are deliberately not being performed?

or reported ????

I don't want to go down the conspiracy theory route, but as others have said, it does seem odd that a country with extremely high exposure to potentially infected Chinese travellers has so few confirmed cases.

Could it be the virus doesn't like tropical temperatures?
