Popular Thai beach resorts disinfect as H1N1 spreads

epa01761658 Health officials disinfect the nightclub area streets of Patong, on the southern resort island of Phuket, Thailand, 14 June 2009. H1N1 infections have now been located in popular Thai beach resorts such as Pattaya, Phuket and Songkhla. Two of the cases in Pattaya were Taiwanese tourists. Thailand's health ministry has ordered the import of two million vaccine doses, anticipating that the new virus could swiftly infect thousands of Thais now that it has reached the human-to-human transmission level locally. Thailand's confirmed cases of the H1N1 swine-flu virus jumped five fold to more than 106 over the weekend. Worldwide, there have been more than 27,700 cases in 74 countries and 141 deaths, nearly all in North America. EPA/YONGYOT PRUKSARAK
