This puts the total to 32 confirmed cases– 23 Chinese visitors and 9 Thai nationals.

One of the Thai cases is a man who was among the 138 Thai nationals brought back to Thailand from Wuhan, Hubei Province, China on last Tuesday and who were immediately placed in quarantine at Thai Navy guesthouses.

He tested negative for novel coronavirus for two days running, but displayed mild flu-like symptoms on 7 February, yesterday, whereupon tests confirmed 2019-nCoV infection. The Ministry reports that the man is doing well today.

The Ministry of Public Health says that 375 persons are currently under investigation, while 279 have been treated for symptoms and discharged.
