There are no cases KNOWN at this time. For all anyone knows there could be hundreds of symptom free, but infectious, people roaming around.

As of yesterday, Bangkok Airways has suspended all flights to/from Hong Kong until October.

They are citing CAA edicts but other airlines are still flying there from Bangkok. (For now!)

To me it sounded like they were very happy to have a reason to suspend a loss leading business (in the current time). Reading the CAA announcements it seems that the onus is on the airlines to make sure that nobody gets on the plane without fulfilling all the new requirements so it might have been a question of "why bother"

there are several gatherings on the island over the next few days rthat involve people from all over Thailand and other countries - they have not been cancelled or postponed - so it could well mn that in 2 weeks or so Samui will have their first cases.

 

I find it surprising that the local authorities are allowing these gatherings to take place.

Gang warfare between the Maoris and Coconuts.... situation normal. Keep out of the cities. Both of them.

As far as I know of a hospital here, there are at least two known cases on Samui, but of course this is kept confidential. No one wants to scare away the tourists...
