Nonthaburi Provincial Public Health Office has issued a warning that passengers on two flights from London face the risk of being infected by Covid-19.

 

The Nonthaburi Provincial Public Health Office has announced that passengers of two Thai Airways (THAI) flights from London to Bangkok may be at risk because three people who took these flights were found to be infected with Covid-19. 

 

The three passengers had developed symptoms en route and later tested positive for the virus. 

 

In an announcement on Facebook page of Nonthaburi Provincial Public Health Office, the public health office said passengers who took TG917 flights from Heathrow to Suvarnabhumi on March 27 and 28 should either quarantine themselves or have themselves tested for novel coronavirus. 

 

A passenger on seat number 49D of TG917, which left Heathrow Airport at 9.25pm on March 27 and landed in Suvarnabhumi on March 28 at 3.51pm, was found to be infected. 

 

Two passengers on TG917, which left Heathrow Airport on March 28 at 9.25pm and arrived in Bangkok the following afternoon, were also found to be infected. 

 

The public health office said people who were on either of the two flights must isolate themselves at home, wear face masks and observe their symptoms for 14 days. Those who feel ill are required to go to the closest hospital and tell the doctors about their travel history.

Did they say this when it was all happening from China in Jan..  I recall they had open arms to the Chinese. Knowing full well the situation 

Interesting that they didn't find any of the half a million Chinese people that flew out of Wuhan to be positive back when it really mattered 🤫 I think I can see where this narrative is going  

No mentioning that the three are foreigners from UK. So they were Thai who brought the virus with them?

The London flu, much worse than the Wuhan flu !!

Indeed, since you get one of the worst kind of Farangs on top of the Wuhan flu. Thai scientists have decided to call it Wuhan Gin Pom flu.

Why do they only list the 1 seat with the infected person?  They don't know the other seats the infected people were in?
 

People asking about cleaning and turn-around time.  These long haul flights have at least a 24 hr turn around time thus easily cleaned.

my angle was that a plane is built to fly...

if it is left non flying, it slowly dies.

 

Hence the even higher costs in eventually 'restoring' it back to full flight status. Many deeper levels of maintenance require the serviced aircraft to fly, as part of it's post-maint checks... 

 

these aircraft, flying one or not, still get basic Servicings, so there will always be Costs anyway.

I wonder if one of these cases is a Brits Thai wife who flew back from the UK then took a 10 hour bus journey home to my town before testing positive.

 

The other positive cases in my town are Thai husband and wife who worked in a Bangkok entertainment establishment before heading home. not sure if they flew or arrived by bus.

Sorry, but isn't it also just as likely that they were infected by getting into a seat from some flying out of Thailand few hours earlier at Heathrow  ? Are they tracing all the people that flew out on the potentially infected plane ? No, thought not. 

This virus can be transmitted by the infected inside a 12 hour period?

 

Really? That would be scary.
