I know a couple people who are due to fly out soon but they are in limbo because until the foreign office gives an official advice warning not to travel, if you take it off your own back to cancel, then your insurance won’t pay out.


Bizarrely when we arrived at Heathrow Thursday morning I was expecting E Gates off and everyone face to face to immigration.
Not a sausage no thermal scanners no special lanes if you'd been in the Far East absolutely nothing and yet both Bangkoks two main airports have thermal scanners taking tempertures on inbound flights.
I had really been expecting a tug after being in Manila and Bangkok.....nothing !

I would not and will not be booking any trips until this is under control.....its a recipe for being stranded overseas for potentially months. If I'd already booked for say next month I would abort and take the flight cost loss FCO advice or otherwise

People are literally going to get marooned here

You wait until this takes off in India Jesus wept....

You are a ray of sunshine aren't you? Lol. I'm off tomorrow and hopefully in the month I'm away it will sort itself out. No way will I cancel.

Hardly...today Kuwait have started evacuating their citizens from Thailand.
When someone like me who worries about nothing and would have zero problem in being stranded for a year declines a trip others should take notice...
The chances of any of us catching it is probably 0.00001% but the chance of associated disruption I'd now put at 40-50%

Life can and will go on and anyway getting stranded in a sun kissed country sounds way more preferable to staying in this rain sodden shithole for the next month.

Totallly agree Ears.
America overnight now banning any foreign citizen that has been in Iran in the last 14 days.


Can't see the point in doing that now as covid-19 is in the USA, heard a spokesman from Washington DC on the radio saying it's here and we can expect more cases.

A chappy from Washington saying last night that the virus has probably been in the area for around six weeks.

He went on to say that many are probably unaware that they have got covid-19 - instead thinking they have a winter cold - and are spreading it willy-nilly.

He stated that cases could rise into the hundreds over the coming weeks.

A UK boffin has said the same for here.

Another 32 cases this afternoon in UK

I believe 87 people out of 65 million = approx. 0.000133% of the UK population.

I won't be worrying about this virus for a while yet.

I know every news agency is busy shouting from the rooftops every time anyone so much as sneezes in the UK.

What would be interesting - and indeed far more newsworthy, is to know exactly what the situation is now in Wuhan. What is the current rate of infection/recovery/contingency planning etc etc.

I can't remember the last news bulletin I saw or read that gave any China information, and that surely is the blueprint in terms of restrictive measures in a worse case scenario over here.

I wont be worrying period (my mate now laughing his socks off) having returned from Far East but the spread of this could escalate wildly into the population in the uk. Christ even the chief medical officer says possibilty of 1 in 5 off sick moving forward

To answer the other question I was reading early February that the true death figure from China was 93,000 in local media rags (Not Chinese before our friend avidly bites)

It's quite instructive to compare Europe as whole with China as, in terms of geography, they are roughly similar size (3.931 and 3.705 million square miles respectively). Population is a bit more different 747.5 million for Europe, 1.4 billion for China, in effect doubled.

Yesterday, China reported 131 new cases, whereas all European countries combined reported 897 new cases.

I wonder how bad this really will get and how far down the line it could stretch, in the UK that is. Been reading reports of two to three months.

Been in Sri Lanka for nearly a week Heathrow saw about ten aisians wearing masks otherwise total normality. All staff on plane wearing masks and we're scanned by infa red at Colombia on arrivAl.
First time I've looked at news and wish I hadn't I haven't missed the hysteria at all.
Talking to an Italian yesterday his gf said he predicted a major world crisis last for the money people to work to their own advantage and here it is. I don't usually go for conspiracies but it wouldn't shock me.
BBC made me laugh picture of a huge tourist area CLOSED for deep cleaning followed by one of the same place on its busiest day ever. Calm down ffs.

Very little chance of any of us getting it I agree but what happens if leisure travel flights are locked down. Dr at Reading University yesterday leading the development of a vaccine is saying 12-18 months before available because of mandatory testing required.
Fair play that you went though have to say I wouldnt have and certainly wont be anytime soon.

Europe maybe where if worse came to worse you could return home overland but not Asia or further east (or the States for that matter)

Why not? Have you not looked at the data?

If Thailand's your destination of choice...?....they currently have just 50 cases and one death. Bearing in mind they were the first county outside of China to have a recorded case of Covid-19, that's a pretty impressive containment record.

At present, you are far more at risk in Europe in...

Italy 5883 cases....
Germany 800
France 716
Spain 503
Switerland 268
UK 206
Netherlands 188
Belgium 169
Sweden 161
Norway 155
Austria 79

If someone on here has the ear of the club or indeed if they read this can they explain why they bothered to put posters up about washing your hands in toilets and kiosk areas which is great and should be done in anycase why they only supply cold water to do so?

If you think Thailand the most racist country on planet earth and in the top 5 of corruption are even remotely telling the truth because of the huge "face" issue involved than think again.

100's are returning from Korea infected. I'd be surprised if the real figure is less than Italy at best and highly likely more with their 39 Million annual visitors (rapidly dropping)

More to the point though where the hell is India on that list !! The most depraved disgusting dirty snot blowing underpants in swimming pool filthy buggers alive

As I said I'm in Lanka where they have had one case which turned out to test negative. Meanwhile the Chinese have invested shut loads over here and as a result want their workers doing all the labour. They have all been sent home and travel from China has been stopped for some time. In that time the EU and UK have really done fook all bar running around with their arms in the arm whilst screaming and wetting their knickers. At the end of the day I'm far safer here than in Blighty imo.

But your figures don't add up Harv.

If it was as rife as you think, then a proportion of the thousands that have come back from holidaying there in the last two months would have been bringing infection home with them - there's no opportunity for Thai authorities to lie with figures then, is there? And then we'd have had the same restrictions as travelling from Italy put on it.

In fact, have there been any actual confirmed reports of any Brits infected after returning from Thailand? I don't recall seeing any, and I'm keeping a very close eye on it.
