Thailand Post increases preventive measures against Covid-19

Thailand Post has employed occupational health and safety measures within its facilities to protect both customers and staff from the new coronavirus (Covid-19), Kalong Subsa-ard, chief operations officer and acting managing director of Thailand Post Co Ltd, said this week.

 

“We will be using disinfectant spray at stations that receive inbound parcels from overseas,” he said. “This applies to all parcels from all countries, not only China, as a precaution against the virus which could spread from person to person.”

This measure will start at the Suvarnabhumi office as it is the first inbound centre that receives parcels from overseas before distributing to other centres in the country. “Three more offices will soon follow including Laksi Centre, Bangkok EMS Centre and Bangkok Mail Centre,” he added.

 

Thailand Post has also distributed 100,000 sanitary face masks to all its employees and advised them to wear them while interacting with customers, as well as keep the workplace clean at all times.

Kalong further added that due to the outbreak of Covid-19, international mail services to many destinations were affected as follows:

 

➤ Sending parcel to China will be available only through Courier Post and International LogisPost to all destinations except Wuhan and Hubei province, which are now temporarily closed. China Post has also warned of late delivery since they will avoid face-to-face delivery and will call receivers to pick up parcels at the post office’s lockers.

➤ Hong Kong has also warned of late delivery as they employ extra preventive measures against the Covid-19 outbreak.

 

➤ As far as sending parcels to countries whose mail services go through China is concerned, dispatches to Mongolia are available only through EMS World while all international mail to North Korea is suspended.

 

Senders who wish to cancel mail that has not been dispatched yet can contact the post office where they sent the package to take the package back and get a full refund. For more information, contact Call Centre 1545 or thailandpost.co.th

You won’t find it on postal packages ... you’ll find it incubating on the hordes of Chinese that you welcome through your airports every day.

Just how effective are these masks I wonder? There seems to be varying opinions on whether they will prevent the virus permeating through them.

Wasn't there also someone (a nurse in China?) who contracted it through their eyes - it was thought they had conjunctivitis to begin with.

Right, I've got it sussed:

Send all the incoming Chinese tourists via Thailand Post and spray them, as no one in government has the balls to quarantine them, or stop them coming in.

We have a plastic cRate we normally use in the orchard put aside for postie to drop things in,  Thai and Chinese mail.   If he needs a signature we use our own pen.  The plastic crate is left out in the sun for the rest of the day.  Hopefully the heat will kill the virus.

Just place the packets in sunshine for a few hours if worried. The heat and UV will kill pretty much everything. 

 

Thai post seems to be doing the right thing with workplace safety measures, good.

Our postman manages to do that with everything he delivers! It's always baking hot, no matter what it is!
