It’s official. Ironman will not be cancelling flights from China, will not be evacuated Cambodians from the affected areas, either.

Likely most of the Chinese workers on the building sites throughout Cambodia went home for Chinese New Year. They must be heading back.

Article below from the Bangkok Post this morning. Two taxi drivers now.

Bangkok is looking a bit like a ghost town, but I can only see about a klick though due to the smog anyway and it smells. No masks except over in the local Burmese market at half the quality, unpackaged and twice the price. Signs everywhere on Pharmacies, no masks, no hand sanitizer.

I think Bangkok is ripe for a spike in cases. Wash your hands boys and wash your hands again. I wanted to hit the Thermae for a quickie before I left but the thought of a basement bar full of hookers and Chinese punters changed my mind

See y'all tonight in Siem Reap. Hey, wash your hands too. Don't lick any random girls either.

You just reminded me of another pic I snapped in Bangkok...

China is using drones to scold people for going outside and not wearing masks amid the coronavirus outbreak
