#Bangkok’s streets were nearly deserted a day after the Thai government declared an emergency will take stricter measures on Thursday to control the #coronavirus outbreak that has infected hundreds of people in the Southeast Asian country.

Many residences said tougher measures that could involve a total shutdown of cities may be inevitable, but some worry about the economic impact that could follow.

At Suvarnabhumi airport, tourists are catching remaining flights out. Diane Britto and her sister from Portugal are among those trying to leave.

The pair, who had been in Thailand since March 2, had their flight canceled last week but are lucky to have found a flight home leaving Wednesday evening.

Thailand confirmed 107 new cases of the virus that causes COVID-19, bringing the total to 934.??
