The Public Health Ministry is urging Thais to postpone any planned visits to Singapore and Japan, citing the rising number of COVID-19 coronavirus cases in the two countries.

Thailand’s total confirmed cases of the virus has risen to 35. The permanent secretary at the Public Health Ministry Dr Sukhum Kanchanapima says that the virus outbreak in the two countries has reached the “third stage,” where locals with no record of meeting with Chinese people are found to be infected.

Thais who visited Japan and Singapore in the past 14 days, and have fever or exhibit other symptoms, must meet doctors and will receive treatment free of charge

Sukhum says the situation in Thailand is now at the second stage but it must brace for the third stage.
