In the meanwhile, Deputy Prime Minister and Public Health Minister Anutin Charnwirakul, who had also accompanied the Prime Minister to the airport yesterday, will assume the duties as the acting Prime Minister.
The news has become viral with thousands of Thais on social media praying for him.
Thailand is currently also on a global focus as it could emerge as the “hub for the coronavirus infections” outside China due to the fact that it had hosted almost 890,000 Chinese travellers from the 1st of December 2019 till the 26 of January 2020. About 18 percent of these were residents from Wuhan.
Additionally, Thailand is also facing a terrible air pollution problem that has been affecting many parts of the country with the pm2.5 levels exceeding safe levels.
Both health conditions are of a particular concern to the vulnerable segmensts such as the elderly, young and people with immunity compromised conditions or those with underlying chronic diseases.
