Later, Anutin will use this case as proof that 'dirty' farang are spreading the virus in Thailand.

Then again, probably not.

I really don't understand why Thailand didn't ban the go-go bars from opening a few weeks back after the Lumpini boxing stadium which also spread to the go-go bars.

But they didn't so wringing your hands on why they didn't isn't really important or even relevant any more.

Case 20: A 25 year old Swedish air hostess who had recently been in Spain and Sweden. She arrived on a flight from Sweden on the 20th and started showing symptoms that day.

 

What does this say about the effectiveness of whatever screening they're doing at the airports -- she arrives from international travel and becomes sick the same day?  But no mention of her being detected by airport screening.

 

Both Sweden and Spain are now on the MOPH's list of "local transmission" countries. I'm not sure Sweden was back on the 20th, since the list was expanded on the 22nd. But Spain definitely was at the time of her arrival.

The young prostitutes will not be fatally affected like the (mostly) old foreigners. Not a good time to be a sex addict.

You can spread it even if you don't show symptoms.

 

In the first few days, the number of virus in the body isn't that great but you can still spread the virus when you speak to others via droplets of saliva in the air.

It is only when the number of virus overwhelms the body after multiplying, that body temperature rise and cough develops.

 

 

 

Thanks for clarifying tha, explains a lot.

Maybe I am mistaken or don’t fully understand the virus as yet.

You May have the virus but show no symptoms,thus allowing you to travel or work. Then after a week or two you get sick or start showing the symptoms. Can the virus be spread prior to showing symptoms,or does it get transmitted once the symptoms arrive.

I personally hope that the Thai authorities lock the place down and enforce it with military presence. If not this will continue to escalate and continue for months. I would much rather go through a 4 week isolation or shut down than going on for months or even a year. People have to relize that a lot of Thai people live day to day and cannot afford to have no income for months on end. Better to have a hard shut down for a month,than a year of misery.

A large part of the reason for worldwide panic, is that this is the first virus that I know of, that you are able to spread to others, without being at all symptomatic. I think this is what is causing the greatest degree of concern, this is what is affecting the markets so profoundly, and this is what it causing massive over reaction from the Thai army, and many governments around the world. What is the 7pm curfew going to accomplish? All nightlife is closed anyway.

This could have been prevented. However, money & profits came first. There should have been no entry of  European tourists  and the  bars should have been shut down.

And Boxing was good and ignored Army ignored them it’s a money maker

So, all the cases are:

1. Because Thais had contact with westerners;

2. Because Thais went to Europe.

 

At this point, my questions are:

1. Westerners can't get infected in Thailand?

2. There's no Thai to Thai contagion?

3. There's no Thai to westerners contagion?

 

What's funny is that the Thai prostitutes have been infected by Westerners, and it wasn't them who infected who knows how many Westerners easy and bad sex seekers. 😀

 

What exactly is a "freelancer"?😄

Why was she allowed to fly back if symptoms had developed overseas? She could have infected an entire planeload of passengers. Dangerously stupid!

it was the Swiss  fault so its  ok.......wonder if  she notified them (Swiss) before  leaping on that plane  though
