Soon they will be discouraging travel outside Thailand to prevent Thais from spreading the virus to other countries

 

What's already happening is that Thailand is now appearing on lists of countries where you're now required to quarantine yourself if you've been there.

 

Recent development this week from Israel:

Israel's Health Ministry expanded the restrictions to prevent the spread of the coronavirus on Sunday, and announced that travelers returning from Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore and Macau will have to remain quarantined at home for 14 days after returning.

 

It's worth noting is that this applies to everyone coming from the above countries - regardless of whether they're showing any symptoms or not.

This is a big development. I like the way the Israelis are handling this situation, they're not messing around here. Good on them!

 

This is news in itself and should be reported as such... @webfact

As part of efforts to prevent the spread of the deadly coronavirus, Interior Minister Aryeh Deri on Monday said Israel would ban all non-Israelis who were in four East Asian countries and territories in the previous 14 days.

The ban now appears to be more comprehensive that I had first noticed - non Israelis who've been in the listed countries recently are now banned from going to Israel now according to 'The times of Israel' - developing very recent story. There will be some diplomatic fallout from this.

Beggars belief that they are encouraging the Thai populace to avoid a Chinese plague in Japan whilst at the same time encouraging more Chinese tourism !

Is there any restriction on Thai's travelling to China or would that not be PC from a Thai ( the little general) perspective?

They want them to spend their money in Thailand, not in other countries...

And do you really believe Thai people could spread something like an alien virus to the world? Thais never would do that.

They are maybe more concerned about Thai gettin' than givin'.

Please Thais, don't go abroad. Spend your money in Thailand. Get the virus in Thailand.

Non of the information in Thailand about the spreading of the virus can be true. The government control all informations about it and don't let the truth spread out to the people !

I am ending a 6-day break in Singapore. Superbly organised as you might expect. Hand cleansing at every location, temperature checks etc. 80% of locals are not wearing masks as asked by their Government. Queues everywhere for restaurants as has always been the case, but all shops and supermarkets are operating perfectly normally. No panic here.....just elsewhere it would seem.
