A Chinese woman on holiday at an unnamed resort in Mae Rim, just north of Chiang Mai city, was found dead in her room yesterday morning. The cause was not apparent and authorities, fearing the spread of Wuhan Coronavirus, took all possible precautions in removing her body and belongings, according to the local police.

According to her four fellow travellers , she arrived in Chiang Mai yesterday and was in good health.

Medical authorities speculate that it is unlikely anything to do with the current coronavirus outbreak in China. An autopsy is currently underway.
