The news has become viral with thousands of Thais on social media praying for him.
is currently also on a global focus as it could emerge as the “hub for the coronavirus
infections” outside China due to the rumoured reports that it had hosted almost 692,000 Chinese travellers from the 1st
of December 2019 till the 26th of January 2020. About 16 percent of these were residents from Wuhan. (Considering that figures from TAT showed that Thailand received about 11 million Chinese visitors for the whole of of 2019, this works out to be an average of about 900,000 visitors per month, the mentioned figure seems to be not fake as it represents figures for two months that are over peak high season periods,it fact it seems too low, hence it is difficult to dispute theses figures unless the past figures from TAT were all fake)
is also facing a terrible air pollution
problem that has been affecting many parts of the country with the pm2.5 levels exceeding safe levels.
Both health conditions are of a particular concern to the vulnerable segmensts such as the elderly, young and people with immunity compromised conditions or those with underlying chronic diseases.
