A man infected with COVID-19 spat in another man’s face as they waited to board a train in Thailand, and the coronavirus-stricken man soon dropped dead thereafter according to report by TMZ.
A surveillance video shows the disturbing interaction on a train platform in Bangkok with the patient walking up to another man in line to buy tickets.
The sick spitter, 56-year-old Anan Sahoh, later tested positive for COVID-19 after he was found dead Tuesday on a train headed to Narathiwat.
According to reports, the spitter passed a mandatory temperature check in order to board the train, and fellow passengers say he was coughing and vomiting.
Sahoh eventually dropped dead in front of an onboard toilet, according to the report, and medical personnel performed a coronavirus test that came back positive for COVID-19.
Now, authorities in Thailand are on the hunt for the man who got the face full of spit, but so far he remains on the loose.
In combat against Covid-19, Thailand’s prime minister announced a nationwide 10 p.m.-to-4 a.m curfew starting Friday to combat the spread of the coronavirus, as cases continue to mount both in Southeast Asia’s second-largest economy as well as in the region more broadly.
