F, all just info! The virus can remain many hours/days on smooth surfaces, stainless steel, guns, tables, etc. On carton, paper, many hours. A infected police man infected colleagues during his incubation time without knowing it, and so are the paper fine ticket booklets. Are the police colleagues now in self isolation?

Good to see Insp K has added another string to his bow- now he's a virologist!!

One police officer infected. At which police station was he working? Are all his colleagues at that station already given a check up and /or told to go in self containment for 2 weeks? Don't tell me his colleagues are still out to do helmet checks/write tickets along the roads. Fine way to spread the virus.

@Christy.  Still worried about having contracted the virus.Still not went for a test ? What are you gonna do with the information if someone was tested positive in Layan  ?

Kurt | 28 March 2020 - 10:11:39

Without doubt, Bangla Area in Patong is a virus breading area. Needs to be closed off/avoided to visit. ( 24 hrs/day curfew).  Not Naiharn Beach, hehehe.

Christy Sweet | 27 March 2020 - 21:31:46

Please tell us  about the first 13, any in Layan area?
