If you are not banned to fly into Thailand, depending on your passport, you may find some peace of mind here as i am doing right now after my Cambodian tourist visa expired. I don’t know for how long, but could be an option to wait it out.
Could be the better option really, better overall healthcare and I think BKK airport has more flights on, the memes were good fun but now it's starting to cause some effect my anxiety isn't having the best time lol. Where would you recommend in Thailand?

I'm currently using the shittest mask that feels like cut up fabric. Putting toilet paper under to act as defense 2.0. really need to find a bottle of hand San as well.

Becoming a black belt at doing stuff without my hands tho 😂🥋

I am in Pattaya, don’t know about other places right now. Here it’s still pretty relaxed, i guess compared to other parts of the world, but obviously nobody can predict what happens next.

all fine in Phuket, fully stocked supermarkets,no mad rush to stock up on anything, less than 10% of people wearing masks,
beach is fine,( swim everyday, doubt the virus will survive in the sea) although it is unusually hot this year.

Other than avoid large crowds and dont touch everything and wash my hands more often, i do as i usually do

Masks dont do shit....

PS ; costs ya less to stay,( plenty of $200-300/month aircon apts/condos) than Phnom Penh

Why not Cambodia ? You would have to come tomorrow, but once you are here, there should be no problem to apply for a EOS and stay on as long as it takes.
There are worse places to be stuck, and there's no coronavirus here,(except for a few bloody foreigners), because HE has said so. Life is going on completely as normal here (for the moment) while the rest of the world is in lockdown and busy panic-buying. No quarantine, and nobody freaking out at westerner disease-bringers (for the moment.)

Above all, I definitely wouldn't go back to Europe, not now that you've escaped. ;-)

I believe it is no longer possible for foreigners to get a visa for Thailand through an agent in Phnom Penh. However, for Khmer it is still possible. Foreigners have to show up at the Embassy themselves.

A French National in Phnom Penh Confirmed with COVID-19 Infection
AKP Phnom Penh, March 15, 2020 —
Cambodia this afternoon detected another COVID-19 infected case, bringing the total number of confirmed cases in the Kingdom to 8.

According to an announcement of the Ministry of Health issued this afternoon, the new confirmed case is a French man, 35, who flew from Paris, France to Singapore on Mar. 13 and then to Cambodia a day after.

He is currently under quarantine at Khmer-Soviet Friendship Hospital, while his wife and his four-month boy are kept in their house in Sangkat Tuol Tompoung, Phnom Penh awaiting their test results from the Pasteur Institute Cambodia.

The Ministry of Health’s working group has been searching for those who came in contact with the French national.
