Thai airport detects coronavirus infection

Thailand’s public health ministry says it has found a tourist from the Chinese city of Wuhan infected with the new coronavirus. The inland city has been hit by a pneumonia outbreak that is likely caused by the virus.

The ministry says the 61-year-old woman had a fever of over 38 degrees Celsius as well as respiratory problems upon her arrival at a Thai airport last Wednesday. She was on a group tour from the city in Hubei Province.

After being hospitalized, she was confirmed on Sunday to have been infected with the new coronavirus.

Ministry officials say she is recovering.

Airports in Thailand are equipped with special imaging cameras that can detect human body temperatures. In response to an outbreak of viral pneumonia in China, Thai officials say they have been closely checking passengers arriving from Wuhan since January 3.
