People stuck on the ship, hundreds isolated in PP hotels, no transit through Malaysia and MAS not flying people out anymore. Is this true?
I think it is. I know last night nine Dutchies were denied on a KLM flight to AMS in KUL after the news became public. I can imagine no country is willing to let any of these passengers in without any quarantine because they're scared this will be another 'Yokohama like case' (nearly 10% infected now on that ship).

Now it's up the competent authorities here to to find and quarantine the passengers and solve the problems. Letting them of the ship was easy, getting them out of the country will be a major pain in the *ss.

Dutch passengers, coming from the Westerdam and still in Cambodia are advised to contact the local heath-center....

That’s the advice given. What a shitstorm.

Als er Nederlanders zijn die dit lezen kun je ook contact met mij opnemen via PM. Sterkte.

How many people were infected?

How many people will be affected by the R0 factor?

Get ready, it's a ticking time bomb.
R0 means zero infected here. Probably a lab error, according to the Cambodian Ministry of Health.
Ummmm....The R0 is how infectious a virus is. Every virus/disease has one. The flu is something like R1.3. The coronavirus has fluctuated but is currently at R3.3

'Animals live for man': China's appetite for wildlife likely to survive virus

https://www.yahoo.com/news/animals-live ... 38405.html


HONG KONG/BEIJING (Reuters) - For the past two weeks China's police have been raiding houses, restaurants and makeshift markets across the country, arresting nearly 700 people for breaking the temporary ban on catching, selling or eating wild animals.

The scale of the crackdown, which has netted almost 40,000 animals including squirrels, weasels and boars, suggests that China's taste for eating wildlife and using animal parts for medicinal purposes is not likely to disappear overnight, despite potential links to the new coronavirus.

Traders legally selling donkey, dog, deer, crocodile and other meat told Reuters they plan to get back to business as soon as the markets reopen.............

Knowing the following:
Cambodia has closed no borders,
Implemented no quarantine,
Cancelled no flights,
Cambodia has done no Contact tracing for 3 infected that travelled the country before,
Barely any testing at all,
Just lost the whole group of these potentially infected people around the city.

At this point I am quite confident to say that Cambodia has an outbreak of the virus and the government just is too stupid to notice it / they are covering it up.

Or the virus isn’t as potent in Cambodia as it appears to be in cooler areas. Time will tell.

Coronavirus Proves One Thing: China's Rise Is Built on Quicksand

https://nationalinterest.org/blog/buzz/ ... and-124146

We may not build hospitals in 10 days with forced labor, but we are better able to create conditions where we don’t have to.

Despite China’s incredible economic success as of late, it’s important to remember that it is still fundamentally a communist country.

Recent events have been a stern reminder.

Freedom can be messy, but it’s nothing like the mess an authoritarian regime creates when it fears losing power.

The disturbing outbreak of the coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in China and the communist government’s response to it should be a reminder of the consequence of a system based on state control, without rule by the people and a vibrant civil society.
