Response to Corona Virus

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

They must have him in the hospital, responses stopped.
Nah, don't think so. If that were the case it would be all over the news.

He's probably too embarrassed to make any further posts.
I hope you don't believe there has only been one case of The virus in the KoW.

I think we should not take this Yankee "Brazil Boy" too seriously. Just check his post history.

My wife and kids are arriving from China on Tuesday, from Sichuan just 200 km from Hubei Province where Wuhan, and I'm taking them to the most crowed restaurant on Riverside I can find.

The post seems to long and detailed to be just a joke.
The fact that he had multiple Chinese wifes and mixed kids is also quite irrelevant.

He could have been in Cambodia for 6 weeks but him or him + the wife and kid could have gone back a few days during the lunar New year.

It's the discrepancy in his posts:
6 kids - then a 2 year old son - then wife and kids

And of course his boasting about coming back from China and then choosing the busiest restaurant on Riverside he can find

Sock or not the post states a good question. And it seems if most had simptoms of a cold they would take an hospital bed that someone else may need for the real illness. I could understand if the reply was having difficulty with breathing. Then go to hospital.

"they would take an hospital bed that someone else may need for the real illness"


The hospitals don't care if it's a real illness or not as long as someone is paying for that bed, I could ask to stay in hospital because my big toe is in pain...as long as I give them 500 dollars a night they would let me stay...

The guy with the virus stays outside if he ain't got any money...Simple as that...

I believe a lot of people that go there die, in fact there are so many sick people there it's the last place I would want to go.

Think about it,,,how many people go to a bar or restaurant and die, If you are sick / unwell, that's the place to go.

I agree with you totally there Duncan, that is always the possiblity that you would end up taking out more than what you went in with, and to top it off you would have paid for the pleasure of it. It's the fact of Western hospital that you could end up with an infection by going into hospital. Yes they are full of sick people.
My only point is why go into hospital if you are not sure if you had the virus, self isolation is the safest all round. The hospital staff can't treat you at that stage anyway. Later you may need assistance to air your breathing, that's all what can be done has I understand.
