This is a horrifying video shows a man with Covid-19 spits in the face of another traveler in Thailand before boarding a train and dropping dead.
Anan Sahoh, 56, tested positive for the virus after he was discovered dead Tuesday on the train from Bangkok to the southern city of Narathiwat, Metro UK reported.
Before embarking on the journey, Sahoh was seen on surveillance footage spitting on an unidentified man buying tickets at the Bang Sue station in Bangkok, the outlet reported.
Medics said that Anan had recently returned from Pakistan and passed through the country’s Suvarnabhumi Airport. He had a ‘fit to fly’ health certificate and was not detected by thermal scans or temperature checks at the airport.
He then passed a mandatory temperature check to board the train. However, the man developed a cough and vomited during the journey and train staff found him collapsed in front of a toilet when the train reached the station.
Medical personnel performed tests on him that confirmed he had been positive for COVID-19, the outlet reported.
Thakoon Intrachom, the director of Thailand’s State Railway, said they’re now trying to track down the straphanger who was potentially exposed to the man, according to the report.
“We are now worried about a man that was spat at in the security camera footage,” he said.
“Initially, we coordinated with the railway police but they have not found him yet. We want to announce that if anyone knows him or if he has heard about the news, then he should please go to the hospital immediately.”
He was later confirmed to have Covid-19 and officials disinfected the carriage and ordered anyone onboard to quarantine for 14 days.
