ATTENTION: Latest reports from social media say that if you arrive in Vietnam from South Korea you will be automatically locked up in quarantine for 14 days. You may want to reconsider your travel plans.
** ANYONE TRAVELLING FROM KOREA TO VIETNAM **

Flights arriving in Vietnam from Korea are being forced into mandatory 14 day quarantine. The passengers didn't know this until they arrived, total surprise. Because quarantine facilities are full, they're sleeping in the airport, and only given a small sandwich to eat.

Pretty messed up situation, and shameful that these flights haven't been cancelled!! Make sure you are keeping up to date and researching travel restrictions, because you might not know.

Having a travel thread for coronavirus is handy as it saves people time from trawling through a 100+ page thread looking for specific information.

Coronavirus travel advice: The latest travel bans, border closures and restrictions

Here is the latest travel advice from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office

As the coronavirus outbreak continues to spread, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office is publishing regular updates for those planning to travel abroad.
As of February 29 at 9am, a total of 10,483 people have been tested for the illness in the UK, of which 10,460 were confirmed negative and 23 positive.

The current advice is to stay indoors and avoid contact with other people immediately if you’ve travelled to the UK from:
Hubei province in China in the last 14 days, even if you do not have symptoms
Iran, lockdown areas in northern Italy or special care zones in South Korea since February 19, even if you do not have symptoms
Other parts of mainland China or South Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan or Thailand in the last 14 days and have a cough, high temperature or shortness of breath (even if your symptoms are mild)
Other parts of northern Italy (anywhere north of Pisa, Florence and Rimini), Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar or Vietnam since February 19 and have a cough, high temperature or shortness of breath (even if your symptoms are mild)

Thailand authorities have decided that visitors arriving from France and Germany are high risk for COVID-19. However, Cambodia, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia and Laos are not on the radar, due to the low numbers of infections officially reported.

New anti-virus measures for foreign visitors and Thais returning from high risk areas
March 3, 2020

Thailand’s Public Health Ministry, via a ministerial announcement, has designated nine countries and two territories as high risk areas for COVID-19, and visitors to Thailand from these areas will be subject to 14-day home quarantine and will have to adhere to health related follow-up measures.

The nine countries, defined by Thailand as “high risk”, are Japan, South Korea, Germany, China, Taiwan, France, Singapore, Italy and Iran, and the two territories are Macau and Hong Kong.

Ministerial announcements specify the following four measures for enforcement:

Visitors and Thai citizens returning from the high risk areas will be subject to 14-days home quarantine, even if they are cleared of the disease, unless they have permission from health officials.

Those who do not have a permanent residence or lodging in Thailand are required to show officials, upon arrival, evidence of where officials can locate them during the 14-day period.

Those who have flu-like symptoms upon their arrival, such as a body temperature exceeding 37.5oC, a runny nose, sore throat or breathing difficulties, will be sent to state hospitals for further testing, treatment or quarantine, depending on the seriousness of the illness.

For those who cannot produce evidence of a formal lodging, such as a hotel or hostel, during their visit in Thailand, immigration officials are authorized to send them back home or to allow them entry subject to 14-days of self-quarantine.

Foreign visitors or Thai returnees from the high risk areas are required to file a daily report on their health with designated health officials during the quarantine period and, if they become unwell or suspect they may be sick, they must inform health officials within three hours so that they can undergo further testing, receive treatment or be isolated.

All the medical expenses incurred will be borne by the individuals themselves.

Why are they allowed to travel if coming from suspected county's and some may have already transited though another airport.
If I unknowingly end up sharing a flight with these people can I claim compensation from the airlines or airport for related costs if I need to isolate myself and medical costs as it's the airlines that have put me at risk .
