The latest case of coronavirus in Krabi is a Frenchman who arrived in Thailand on the 16th of March and flew to Phuket. He subsequently stayed at a hotel on Koh Phi Phi from 17th to 25th before taking a ferry to Koh Lanta. 

 

He then came down with a fever and on the 29th tested positive for coronavirus. 

 

The authorities in Krabi are trying to trace nine passengers who were on the Phi Phi to Lanta ferry on the 25th who used the 11.30 to 1.30pm service. They should contact their nearest health facility. 

 

There are now eight confirmed cases of the virus in Krabi. One has gone home. Five are in Krabi Hospital and two in Koh Lanta Hospital. 

 

Twenty people have been tested and results are they are awaiting results. 

 

Meanwhile an emergency medical facility to be called Sanam Hospital in Ao Nang has been donated by a well known philanthropist called Chuan Phukaoluan.

 

Donations of bedding and mattresses have been received and TOT have set up communications.

 

The facility will have 60 rooms and 120 beds.

 

The military and local authority were conducting cleaning and preparations at the facility yesterday, reported Sanook.

Phuket didn't enforce the required 14 days quarantine and let him got out of the premises.... just shows how good the communication is between Thailand governments (provincial/central)

Or how dumb the Phuket minister was trying to keep tourism afloat and ignoring all the information about what was going to happen.
