A Thai immigration spokesman said that no cases of the Covid-19 virus had been found after dozens of passengers who were on the Westerdam cruise ship arrived in the country from Phnom Penh, the Cambodian capital.

 

The Cambodian authorities had allowed the ship to stop in their country.

 

Pol Maj-Gen Surapong Chaijan, a deputy of the IB, said that 18 passengers arrived at Suvarnabhumi on Friday and 61 on Saturday.

 

All were screened and cleared of the virus. There are about 19 flights daily into Thailand from Phnom Penh.

 

Maj-Gen Surapong said everything was in hand. His chief Lt-Gen Sompong Chingduang had ordered watches at five international airports (the two in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket and Hat Yai) as well as land and sea borders.

 

All arrivals from the ship would be allowed entry after being screened by medical personnel and their stays in Thailand would be monitored.

 

Similarly there were no problems at the Mae Sot border area where everything was in hand.

There was concern expressed in reports that hundreds of Chinese were passing into Thailand over the Friendship bridge between Myanmar and Tak province.

 

Surapong said that about 70-100 Chinese were traversing the bridge per day and no one had the virus. Checks were all in place.

 

Three that had come from infected areas in China were passed clear after checks.

 

Thailand was one of several countries that denied docking to the Westerdam.

Airports of Thailand Pcl (AOT) announced this week that it is working with the Department of Disease Control to tighten the screening of passengers from Cambodia after the “Westerdam” cruise ship docked at Sihanoukville, Cambodia, last week and some 20 passengers were diagnosed as infected with the new coronavirus (Covid-19).

 

According to an AOT statement, measures have been put in place at Suvarnabhumi, Don Mueang and Phuket international airports, which receive flights from Cambodia. All these airports will prepare separate bays for planes arriving from Cambodia from February 14-21, a practice similar to the one used for passengers coming from China.

As for the flight TG585 departing from Phnom Penh, which had carried 27 passengers who had disembarked from “Westerdam”, the medical staff had screened all passengers and found no signs of infection or fever, and had allowed them to proceed to their destinations. All passengers leaving Thailand are given advice on virus protection as well as a Health Beware Card.

 

Suvarnabhumi Airport receives 19 flights from Cambodia every day, while Don Mueang gets seven flights per day and Phuket airport has one flight per day. Other airports under the AOT’s administration (Chiang Mai, Hat Yai, and Mae Fah Luang-Chiang Rai) do not receive flights from Cambodia.

I know they urge people to wear face masks, but to cover a whole table just for that cause?
