Anutin explains why some cruise ships welcome

The government allowed two cruise ships, the Seabourn Ovation and Quantum of the Seas, to dock at Phuket because the majority of the 2,000 passengers aboard each were European, Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul said this week.

 

The Westerdam has been denied permission to berth at Laem Chabang Port in Chonburi because most of its passengers are from Hong Kong and the Chinese mainland, and China is dealing with an outbreak of the coronavirus COVID-19, he said. 

 

The Ovation and Quantum have been turned away nowhere else, whereas the Westerdam is struggling to find a place anywhere to land, he added.

As well, Anutin said, the Ovation and Quantum’s stays in Phuket were for only 10 hours.

 

Trisulee Trisaranakul, a deputy government spokeswoman, said the Ovation’s medics reported that no passenger had shown symptoms of the virus anywhere along its voyage.

 

Thailand has no measure for restriction passenger ships’ travels, she said, but the ministry was obliged to follow safety procedures and earn the public’s confidence.

This guy is going to have a really, really... hard time.

 

The best is yet to come !

 

We are talking about loss of face times facepalms times "i want to become invisible" times "my-brain-is-fried" style of hard time...

 

"Two passengers who arrived at NSCBI Airport (West Bengal, India) from Bangkok have tested positive for the novel #coronavirus - Airports Authority of India"

 

Wait... From Bangkok ? Nonnn. Mais ce n'est pas possible ! We were told.... ? 😉

 

And to increase the "bad luck factor"... both passenger have an indian name... Or perhaps they were living in China ?

 

Or not.

OMG

This thing could possibly go really Ballistic in the number of cases if the Indian Authorities do not get to grips with this in some kind of rapid fashion.

I hate to imagine the outcome if the Virus gets a hold in this Country with its 1.3 Billion Inhabitants, who mostly live in poor living conditions.

Passenger list has 1/29 from China/Hong Kong, most of the rest were from western countries.
