BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand recorded a new coronavirus infection, taking its tally to 42 cases since January, a health official said on Saturday.

 

The victim is a 21-year-old Thai salesman whose job brought him exposure to foreign tourists, the permanent secretary of the health ministry, Sukhum Kanchanaphimai, told a news conference.

 

Thailand has not yet had a death from the virus, although 28 patients have recovered and 14 are being treated in hospital.

 

The rapid spread of the coronavirus has fuelled fears of a pandemic, with six countries reporting their first cases this week as the World Health Organization raised its global risk alert to "very high".

When is the wet season in Thailand?

Not looking forward to it.....

I would be more worried about winter in Thailand come Nov/Dec, as for the wet season, I think it's May to July, if we get any rain as I heard the rain man got the Coronavirus and died, but that is on the hush, hush 🙂

#42 exposure to foreign tourists of coarse you think there going to say which foreign nationality.

 

This is just an example, but if a Thai ladyboy was working in Pattaya, it would be impossible to know the nationalities of his customers.
