Thailand Confirms Six New Cases of Coronavirus, Four of Them Thai Nationals

Thailand confirmed six new cases of the new coronavirus on Tuesday, four of them Thai nationals and two Chinese. The four Thai people included a couple who had visited Japan and two drivers who had picked up Chinese passengers in Thailand, the health ministry said.

The new cases brought the total reported in the country to 25.

The death toll from the new coronavirus now stands at 425 with the number of infections almost doubling in a day to more than 20,000.

All of China’s provinces and territories have now been touched by the outbreak. China has asked the European Union for help in purchasing urgent medical supplies from its member countries.

It is recommended that persons begin to practice the following:

– wear protective masks in public

– wash hands more regularly than before with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub

– only eat meat that you can confirm its origin, if not, eat tinned food

– stay at least 3 feet away while speaking with persons

– avoid shaking hands and hugging if possible

– if you feel throat discomfort, gargle with warm salt and water at least 3 times daily

A) hold a mouthful of diluted warm salt water

B) raise your head, let the salt water stay around your throat area for a few seconds

C) open your mouth slightly and exhale slowly, let air bubbling through the water in your throat and make a continuous “ha, ha” sound

D) spit out the salt water after a few seconds

E) repeat 3-5 times daily

Because viruses or bacteria lurk in the pharynx through the nasal passage, diluted saltwater can kill them on the spot, thereby achieving the purpose of preventing infection. This method is simple, effective, easy to do but requires perseverance.

Be in the know…the life you save could be your own.
