The Department of Disease Control (DDC) on Tuesday (March 10) added Spain to risky areas for Covid-19 infection, urging people to postpone travel. 

 

The other risky areas include Taiwan, Germany, Singapore, France, and Japan. 

 

Those returning from the high-risk areas must visit a doctor if they suffer symptoms such as cough, sore throat, runny nose, and breathing difficulty within 14 days of arrival and also report their travel history to the health officer.

 

Meanwhile, all returnees from countries and territories at high risk of the Covid-19 infection: South Korea, China (including Hong Kong and Macau), Italy, and Iran, need to show a medical certificate before boarding the aircraft and undergo self-quarantine for 14 days after arriving in Thailand.

Taiwan 45 cases with clear and strict containment policies in place since end of Jan.

I agree with adding Spain, France, Germany and Japan as they all have more than 1000 cases.

 

But to add Singapore (178) and Taiwan (48) cases is not very logical when USA has 1016 cases.

Risk factor is calculated by how many cases per million of the population.

 

Singapore is 30.4 / million according to your own link, which is very high

Exactly Singapore is only about half the size of Bangkok!

Well there's only around 250 people in Singapore, probably why it's on the list.

Thailand has survived this long with millions of Chinese tourists coming and going.  When people come into the country the infect other in close contact but it does not seem to spread on a massive scale probably due to the climate.

 

Good idea to avoid crowded places, especially indoor AC.

Don't eat any street food or food out in the open.  Given this behavior Thailand should be just filled with cases. But it is not.

 

Seeing as they baring foreigners, we can assume Thailand is not lying about their own numbers. What would be the point of baring foreigners then?

Thailand should add itself to that list. Stop hiding data, start testing and then put itself between high risk areas.
