The Ministry of Public Health coordinated requests for information from South Korea after a woman was found infected with the virus after returning from Thailand.

Dr. Thanarak Pliphat, Deputy Director-General of the Department of Disease Control Referring to the news report that the Korea Department of Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) found the country’s 16th new case of the new coronavirus, the latest case is a 42-year-old woman who returned from Thailand. news received It is coordinating with the South Korean Department of Disease Control regarding the results of the preliminary investigation and laboratory results. in order to remove information Used to work in order to see if this patient is actually infected. Where would the infection come from?

“I would like to look at it in a common sense way that since Chinese people in Thailand can still get sick. can still infect Thai people in general, when tourists go anywhere they tend to go in groups Where there are a lot of tourists, Chinese and Korean people tend to travel in that place. So the chances of tourists infecting each other are theoretically possible.”

however Confirmed that Thailand is still at the point where the spread of the virus is still at a limited level as before. But this news did not affect the level of Thailand’s risk assessment at all. We already have low-risk opportunities to come into contact with people infected with this disease in Thailand. But if the spread of the disease in Thailand continues without being detected for a while, we may have an increase in the number of patients. And when there are more infected patients in the country to a certain point Thailand’s risk level will increase.

“Now we are doing our best to find as many patients as possible. and will search for the person who touches it to take a history come to examine the body, detect the infection and follow up the person who touched it for a while.

As for the latest situation of the coronavirus infection in Thailand, on February 4, at 8:00 a.m., there are still 19 cases, 8 cases have returned home, 11 are still being treated at the hospital, while the patients are under investigation criteria.

Still 373 hospital treatments, and on February 3, 7 new patients were found to be under investigation.

Dr. Thanarak said that from having met an infected person in the country, it was a taxi driver. Causing us to work in two areas: to watch out for Thai people together and to watch out for people who travel from abroad as well
