Good point K ^^

I clearly remember my favourite epidemiologist saying on TV that airliners were the most perfect virus vectors you could invent - talking about SARS.
However a quick google scroll shows wildly different opinions.

Over the past few years i have regularly been breathing high spore-count mouldy air on Air Asia,
so i have big doubt about the filters.

(i suspect equatorial airlines have a big issue with that. Air Asia seems to, on a number of their planes.
which is maybe why they often fly with a cabin temperature approaching freezing point.
It helps control the mould. but just guessing there)

Translation ^^^ from Youtube discussion of this vid -

TRANSLATION: Doctor picks up phone: "I don't want to go home?! I don't want to go home to celebrate New Year's, huh?! What did you guys do?! What did you guys do?! [Not 100% on the next few sentences, so "rough" translation.] You five went to see some sick people, and then there were four ???, and then we came out, there were thirteen ???.

We don't want to live?! Look at this situation!"

Nurse walks up to try and comfort him.

Doctor continues: "What exactly is it do you guys want to do, huh?! No, I don't want it! Fine, if you guys don't think it's convenient, then forget it! Take [them?] away! Go home! Go home and don't work!"

Nurse: "Don't make a fuss..."

Doctor: "I'm not making a fuss! There are so many sickbeds, what do we do?!"

The rest of this I'm not 100% sure on the technicalities, but the nurse is telling him there are others that can come, and he responds with "yeah, well, tell them to come fly over here!" and pushes her away. And the person recording sounds desperate because she tried to contact people and it seems she got no response.

Doctor before cutting off: "I don't want extra doctors?! I don't want extra doctors?! I have doctors,?! Then how do I see people-"

.A later post from same translator

Basic translation is: I want to survive also but there are so many people laying on the ground. Hard to translate because it's a local dialect. He's trying to find a higher up but unsuccessful. No breaks no nothing

Thai Airways and Thai Air Asia are both taking steps to prevent any possible spread of Novel Coronavirus pneumonia through tourist arrivals from Wuhan, the source of the outbreak. Thai Air Asia, which operates two daily flights to Wuhan from Bangkok and one from Phuket, suspended services yesterday. Meanwhile Malaysia-based Air Asia, has also suspended scheduled flights to and from Kota Kinabalu to Wuhan

A spokesperson for Thai Airways says the national carrier has also adopted preventive measures to maintain confidence among passengers and Thais concerned about the spread of the virus beyond the shores of China. The measures include cabin cleanliness, thermal screening of passengers before boarding, observation of unusual symptoms of passengers while onboard and the use of face masks and gloves by cabin crew. AoT airports in Thailand are also routinely screening passengers as they disembark flights from China.

How the coronavirus was created
“The Chinese market at the center of the deadly coronavirus outbreak sold live animals — including wolf pups, foxes, rats and peacocks — to eat, according to a new report.“

The Wuhan virus has now spread from China to at least seven countries – Thailand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam, Singapore and the United States – and that number is expected to rise.

Countries all over the world have intensified efforts to stop the spread of the Wuhan virus, which can be difficult to detect amid fears the virus is mutating.

As the Lunar New Year starts, the virus is now being detected in a number of countries as Chinese tourists travel around the world on their annual holiday.

In Thailand, a popular holiday destination for Chinese tourists, four cases have been confirmed. Thailand has taken high-level measures to monitor and prevent the spread of a new coronavirus, Sukhum Kanchanapimai, the Ministry of Public Health’s permanent secretary, told the Bangkok Post.

It's going to spread like wildfire here because Khmers are fucking terrible at covering their mouth when they cough or sneeze.

Mmmm, tasty coronavirus-ridden bat
