Thailand has effective health surveillance systems for disease control

 

Since the beginning of this year, Thailand has implemented travellers’ health screening with thermal scans at Suvarnabhumi, Don Mueang, Chiang Mai, Phuket and Krabi International Airports. Health surveillance systems are also in place at the Department of Airports’ 28 other airports nationwide including the above-mentioned Krabi Airport, and the U-Tapao Rayong-Pattaya International, Samui, Sukhothai and Trat Airports. All have stepped up hygiene measures, including extra cleaning and disinfection as well as provided hand sanitisers.

 

Thai airlines have also implemented preventive measures, including passengers’ health screening and intensifying hygiene measures. Several airlines have also announced fee waiver policies for flight changes and cancellations, credit accounts and refunds on reserved tickets for flights to high-risk destinations.

 

The Department of Health, Ministry of Public Health has stressed the importance of strict hygiene measures at government places, restaurants, food stalls, hotels, and petrol stations. The measures also cover public transport, including city buses and commuter vans, rapid transit (sky train and subway) and ferries, as well as intercity buses, coaches and trains.

 

The Department of Disease Control, Ministry of Public Health, has released a series of recommendations for the general public and the public and private organisations as well as operators of public spaces on the coronavirus preventive measures.

 

Thailand’s tourism and travel activities go on as usual

 

While a massive preventive campaign is under way nationwide to block the spread of the 2019-nCoV, all shops, department stores, attractions, restaurants, museums and tourist spots are open as normal. All events, sports activities, conferences and exhibitions are proceeding normally.

 

By just taking normal medical precautions, visitors can proceed with their plans as usual. Follow the Department of Disease Control’s daily recommendations for protecting yourself from pneumonia caused by the coronavirus: frequently wash your hands with soap and water or alcohol gel; do not use your hands to touch your eyes, nose, or mouth unnecessarily, and strictly follow the “avoid eating uncooked food, use serving spoons, wash your hands” instructions.
