A sickening video from Thailand has emerged showing a man, sick with the deadly coronavirus, spit in an unsuspecting man’s face.
It was revealed that the assailant had dropped dead a little later, close to Thap Sakae district station.
The man tested positive for Covid-19 post-mortem, prompting officials to disinfect the carriage and urge fellow travelers who may have come into contact with the man to self-isolate for 14 days.
According to Inquisitr, a list of 15 passengers who may have come into contact with the infected man has been drafted. Eleven of these passengers have now been quarantined.
The spitter, Anan Sahoh, 56, was later found unresponsive slumped over a seat in a carriage after the disgusting assault.
Sahoh had been traveling from Bangkok to Narathiwat, in the south of Thailand, according to The Sun.
It was also believed by authorities that he had traveled back from Pakistan as he was deemed “fit to fly.” He also passed a temperature check at Suvarnabhumi Airport.
Sahoh spat at a man in front of him outside of the Bang Sue station’s ticket box, even though, according to the footage, Sahoh was dependent on a crutch to move about.
Local authorities are desperately attempting to reach the spitting victim as he may be infected with the coronavirus.
A State Railway of Thailand spokesman said: “We are now worried about a man that was spat at in the security camera footage.
“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.”
The King of Thailand recently made headlines after it was revealed that he had been holed up at a luxury hotel in Germany with his harem of 20 women, as part of his coronavirus self-isolation.
The monarch’s actions drew protests as the country struggles with the pressure piled on by the coronavirus pandemic.
