The governor of Surin went on his personal Facebook page to update about the latest case of coronavirus in the north eastern Thai province. 

 

There are now five cases. 

 

The latest is a 19 year old spa employee from Pattaya who caught the virus from an infected Swedish tourist.

 

She arrived in Surin in the early hours of Monday morning on a tour bus that left Pattaya on Sunday night. 

 

All those on the service were told to report to health authorities as a matter of urgency.

 

The service was Nakhon Chai Air First Class 30 seats from Rayong to Surin #8424. It left Pattaya at 9.10 pm Sunday and reached Surin at 4.30 am Monday.

 

The governor went on to say that 2,692 people had arrived back in the province from outside. He would not just call Bangkok or its surrounding areas as the only risky places now as everywhere in Thailand is risky, he said. The returnees came from all over.

 

Some 413 people are considered to be at risk of having contracted the virus.

 

He said starkly: If we as a province are to get through this crisis stay home, only go out if absolutely necessary from now on. 

 

Sanook further reported that Surin's borders with Cambodia were now very quiet.

And so the exodus of people back to their home places is spreading the virus far afield, as we all predicted it would. Social distancing is all very well, but until you stop people leaving high number areas like Bangkok, the numbers are just going to keep rising.

By the bus load it seems 

 

I advised two Thai friends of mine who were planning to go home yesterday not to go anywhere near a bus station let alone a bus, they stayed

 

I told them I would give them 2000baht a month x2 what the Thai government thinks is enough lol

 

How long does it take for my posts to actually appear on the forum live - yes I see them but from another device they are not there - so how long TVF
