WUHAN VIRUS IN THAILAND – As China struggles to contain the new coronavirus that was believed to have started in Wuhan, foreign countries are discovering more cases of the virus.
This time, Thailand had confirmed six new cases of the coronavirus. That sums up to a total of 14 people infected in the country.
According to a report from CNN, all of those infected were Chinese. Five out of the six new cases are members of the same family who traveled to Hubei province.
Meanwhile, the sixth new infected Chinese was from Chongquing province. With this, Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health, Sukhum Kanchanapimai urged the public against non-essential travel to China.
In addition, he requested that residents of Thailand to report to the authorities if they spot anyone, including Chinese tourists who came from China if they show symptoms of the disease.
However, recent reports suggested that the virus could still be transmitted even at its incubation period. This meant that even though a person does not show symptoms, he/she could still spread the virus.
As per the article, Thailand was said to be one of the most popular destinations for Chinese tourists. More than ten million Chinese visit to Thailand yearly based on figures.
