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. 

How is that a conspiracy theory lol.  Loosen up.

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.

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!  🙄

Reported in UK MSM as testing negative. False alarm!

I do quarterly appointments to Bumrungrad Hospital for blood work, etc. and renew my medications. My next visit is on March 4, 2020. I'm wondering if I should cancel the appointment for a later date considering the fact that some Coronavirus patients may be housed at the hospital. Any opinions?

Don't enter the rooms where they keep the COVID-19 patients.

That is a ridiculous answer. If you have nothing to offer why respond? It's people like you that makes aking a serious question impossible. I will now call you an "expletive" so I don't get a suspension. You fool.

"The 33rd patient got sick from contact and her condition is not severe," Suwanchai said.

 

People who had come into contact with her were under observation, he added.

I'm sure people have a good idea what I'm getting at

 

And everything you have to say would be alarmist dreck, simply becuase you lack the inability to read a simple news article and jump to whatever conclusion fits your current bias.

My previous response was somewhat tongue-in-cheek (sorry that that offended you), but it was actually seriously meant.

 

Let me try again without any attempt of humour: You asked for opinions. My opinion is that as long as you avoid contact with any COVID-19 patients there is no reason for you to not keep your appointment.

Because those who are partial to conspiracy theories usually ascribe sinister motives to events - in this case, the static or barely-changing  number of people diagnosed with the virus

In Vietnam, official media reported that a village of 10,000 north-west of the capital, Hanoi, had been put in lockdown because of a cluster of cases there.

The online newspaper VN Express cited a senior official of Vinh Phuc province as reporting an increase in cases in the Son Loi commune.

Vietnam has confirmed 16 cases, most of them in the province.

Apparently, it was a Viet student who studied in Wuhan who introduced the virus to her family and neighbors. Vietnam doesn't give tourist visa to Chinese people and people who were in China in the last 2 weeks. They also stopped flights with continental China.

Vietnam is way stricter than Thailand, putting a whole small town under quarantine. I am quite amazed how Thailand is still resisting with open borders. The next 2 weeks might see a big change. We'll see.
