Thailand MERS ALERT

Thailand Mers 2015 - BANGKOk Minister says situation under control; people who came in contact with Omani patient quarantined

THE PUBLIC Health Ministry has put Thailand on a nationwide alert for MERS after one foreigner tested positive for the virus at a Bangkok hospital on Thursday, with various measures being implemented to ensure it does not spread. Public Health Minister Dr Rajata Rajatanavin said authorities were ensuring the situation was under control, with a total of 141 people in the country on the watch-list. Most of these people have already been located and quarantined.

Health authorities are also working closely with other agencies such as the Foreign Ministry, the Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department and the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration to prevent the spread of Middle East respiratory syndrome. The World Health Organisation's office in Thailand has also provided specialists and advisers to help Thailand contain any MERS outbreak.

"There are two groups of people who had close contact with the Omani MERS patient. The first group, which consists of 66 people, is the riskier group, including three close relatives, 47 medical staff and airline passengers who sat close to the patient on the plane on their way to Thailand," Rajata said. "The second group has 75 people who came close to the patient but did not have direct contact. They were other airline passengers, taxi drivers and hotel staff. All of them will be monitored for 14 days but they don't need to go to hospital yet."

According to the minister, the chance of a widespread MERS outbreak in Thailand like that in South Korea is very low because Thai health authorities were able to identify the first patient quickly before he could travel further and infect other people. The acting WHO representative to Thailand, Richard Brown, praised Thailand's swift action to prevent the spread of MERS and the progress in tracking people who had come into contact with the single MERS patient.

Professor Dr Yong Poovorawan, a top virologist at Chulalongkorn University's faculty of medicine, said the MERS virus was less infectious than SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) or common flu. The low infection rate of the virus combined with the swift measures to contain it makes the chance of a widespread outbreak in Thailand very low, he said.

Yong suggested that if anyone had come from countries where MERS existed and experienced flu-like symptoms such as cough, runny nose and fever within 14 days, they must wear a facemask and visit a hospital for a check-up.

"There are now 14 centres of the Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department and laboratories in the medical schools that can test for the MERS virus," he said.

Rajata also said the condition of the first MERS patient, a 75-year-old man from Oman, had improved slightly but he was still in a special unit at Bamrasnaradura Infectious Diseases Institute in Nonthaburi. Three of his close relatives have been isolated in the same unit as well; two of them have flu symptoms.

"If their [three relatives] MERS test results are positive, there is nothing to worry about as all of them are already in quarantine," he said.

Dr Vitoon Leungdilok, the public health chief of Trang province in southern Thailand, said there was one possible MERS patient who has just returned from South Korea. Authorities got the contact number for this person as part of the monitoring system.

"We will ensure that everyone from at-risk countries is closely monitored," he said.

Dr Surasing Wisarurat, the deputy public health chief of Chiang Mai in northern Thailand, said there were many possible MERS patients as airlines fly directly from South Korea to Chiang Mai, but the public should not panic. So far, the province has quarantined four people, including three who came from China, but found no MERS virus. In the southern province of Songkhla, Dr Suwich Thampalo of the Disease Control Department said doctors were now stationed at Hat Yai and Narathiwat airports to help screen possible MERS patients. In addition, there will be extra measures when Muslim Thais in southern provinces leave for the Middle East for the hajj in August.

Meanwhile, Tourism Council of Thailand president Ittirit Kinglake said MERS could trigger fear among Thais as well as tourists staying in the country. However, he said people should not panic. He advised tourism operators, particularly hotels, airlines, stores, shops, and every public area, to be aware of this problem. They have been urged to clean up places in order to avoid virus infections.

Ten Fabulous Tourist Tips For Thailand

Fabulous Tourist Advice Thailand and Thai Girls


Having lived in Thailand here is some advice. If you have ever considered life in Thailand - i'd suggest have a thorough read about Thai Life, Thai Girls, and Thailand in general. Amazing Thailand is full of amazing people. You just have to find them.

Monks

Our Top 10 Tips For Thailand


1. Do not pat someone on the head - it's disrespectful, and considered a sacred part of the body. The feet are considered the least important part of the body - don't step on anyone's toes. A body is like a hierarchy the top being the most important. I like this tradition in Thailand.

2. Monk's are not allowed to beg for money. Scammers, they'll do anything. There was a Thai monk who was scamming many people. He got found out when he was pictured in first class on a plane wearing designer sunglasses. Many people questioned how he could afford such luxuries. Needless to say - because he SCAMMED tourists in Thailand.

3. Don't take a woolly jumper! It gets very hot all over Thailand. That's why many tourists dress like they've just woken up. Thai girls dress amazingly. Little shorts and tight tops. Love!

4. They have two seasons - one of them being the monsoon season lasts for 6 months! Take a rain coat. During the monsoon season the weather can be so unpredictable. There will be times when it will rain for short periods, but with super heavy rain. Take a poncho! 

5. Respect all elders - especially in this culture. In the West we do respect elders. But we don't take care of them as much as they do in Thailand. In England we will send old people to an old peoples home. In Thailand, they will look after the elders, Often they will live with the family whilst the parents go to work.

6. One article said "don't touch a girl if you don't know them" - I think this applies to every country in the world! Saying that, if you do go through with this - 2 things could happen; 1. Get arrested. or 2. You will touch a Ladyboy, and i'll leave the rest to your imagination. Ladyboy's in Thailand are crazy.

7. Don't dis-respect their King he's like a God to them. The possibility of going to jail's high! See 10. La Majeste - People get sent to prison for things like social media opinions in relation to the king. You just can't do it.

8. Avoid scammers see number 2. There's also the scam of Thai girls, 'falling in love with you' and then spiking you and robbing you. This can happen often. Just be careful - there are some lovely Thai girls and people. 

9. They call westerners 'falang'. Don't be surprised if you hear this term regularly. Some westerners in Thailand think it's a racist term. But I don't, you get used to it.

10. Don't end up in prison - i've seen Bridget Jones 2!
