The 2019-nCoV coronavirus, now deemed an international public health emergency by the World Health Organisation, has resulted in dozens of high-season flights to Thai southern beach resorts cancelled.

Reporters surveying the scene on Phuket’s Pa Tong Beach this week were able to count a few, mainly from Europe and Russia, South Korea and Japan, sunbathing, swimming and tossing around frisbees.

There are also Chinese tourists still to be found on Phuket as well, many booking cruises around the Andaman Sea.
