LINK RE VIRUS STRAINS:

Two separate types of the novel coronavirus — one more aggressive than the other — could be infecting people during the sweeping outbreak, Chinese scientists revealed in a new study.

The preliminary study, conducted by researchers from Peking University’s School of Life Sciences and the Institute Pasteur of Shanghai under the Chinese Academy of Sciences, revealed that the infection has evolved into two major types, designated L and S.

Phnom Penh (FN), Mar. 5 – The Ministry of Health, via Fresh News, has urged those who have been in contact with the Japanese man infected with Covid-19 to urgently seek for health test.

Anyone have any idea of what the Chinese are spraying around in the streets etc to kill this virus or what product is used to sterilize items like handrails on escalators and items in public places and homes.
No answers. So here is my solution.

After questioning, the experts concluded that there was no connection to Covid-19, and the team recommended the above three Chinese to be hygienic when meeting their friends. However, these three Chinese men, who come from the disease area in China, have symptoms such as a cough, runny nose, 38 °fever, and shortness of breath.
Mr. Meas Pheakdey said that in this case, the health department will continue to monitor the three nationals above. Moreover, in relation to the health of the people in Phnom Penh, especially in Covid-19, the governor was very careful and always ready to take action.

Have most of the symptoms but no testing as they have questioned them instead.

I’d be curious to know what the Thai measurements/units column indicates for concentration, as there seems little correlation with numbers in relation to % concentration.
5% = 5, 10 or 1 Thai wotsits
But
2.5% = up to 30

The first column is the % of dettol mixture. The second column is how long in minutes (to do whatever). The one which says '30' is seconds not minutes.
Hope that helps some. :hattip:

Scarry, they either have absolutely no test kits or they simply don´t care about their people.
