Well, also, that's Sunlight brand dish detergent ( not hand cleaner) if I'm not wrong, and the kids are touching their hands together in what water?

What a complete joke.

Only for the 'show', not a single picture showing real measures (which are unnecessary anyway).

But I suppose @Mishmash praises Cambodia and that school for 'doing something'!!!

This hysteria is way more threatening than the virus itself.

Well I would tend to agree. I think encouraging better practices helps - but the general environment needs a whole lot of improvement as far as hygiene goes.

"He's alive. He's alive. Quick take him off the list!"

Strange, yesterday the data site showed 107 deaths, this morning it has dropped back to 106. Did someone just wake up and say, "Who me? No, I'm not dead. I was just having a kip."

In a major breakthrough in the global fight against coronavirus, scientists in Australia have developed a lab-grown version of the disease.

Described as a "game changer" that will help scientists determine whether a future vaccine is effective, experts at Melbourne's Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity on Tuesday became the world's first scientific lab outside of China to recreate the virus.

They will now share it with the World Health Organisation (WHO) in Europe, which will in turn share it with labs worldwide — including one from Queensland — involved in the worldwide race to develop a vaccine.

The team of scientists grew the virus from a patient who had been infected since Friday.

7,000+ passengers arrived at Don Meuang Airport, Bangkok on the 254 direct flights from Wuhan in the month of January prior to the flights being suspended.


Steps planned to boost consumption, tourism
Chinese tourists seen falling 2m this year

The government plans to introduce additional measures next month to boost consumption and tourism, its finance minister said on Tuesday, as it tries to shore up a faltering economy potentially facing a sharp blow from the coronavirus in China.

Tourism, a key growth driver and previously the only bright spot in the economy, has been hit hard by China's ban on all group tours.

China is Thailand's biggest source of foreign tourists, with 11 million Chinese visitors last year accounting for 28% of the total. The Tourism Authority of Thailand expects Chinese visits to fall by 2 million this year.....

At the average of 1,300 USD Chinese tourists spend on a holiday in Thailand, that is a2.6 Billion USD hit. It is not just airline stocks that are going to suffer.

The economic downturn will start to hit all across Asia. China the worst off thats clear.

Those on the lower part of the economic ladder will suffer greatly if the shutdowns extend.

Drop off in tourists will hurt Thailand and Cambodia. China tourist industry finished for the time being.

Interestingly those with the virus detetected outside of China have all survived at this stage. Reason is the numbers can be handled by the medical facilities. Its when the hospitals are over run the deaths occur.

Stopping all flights from China seems the best way to control the import of the virus.
