Anan Sahoh, a 56-year- old Muslim man (photo right) who had recently traveled to Pakistan and was caught spitting at an unknown person while buying a train ticket at Bangkok’s Bang Sue Railway Station, dies of coronavirus on the same train hours later.
Daily Mail (h/t Mrigank) Anan Sahoh, 56, was found slumped on the passenger train on Monday after he was earlier seen ‘coughing and vomiting’ during the journey. Health officials grew alarmed when CCTV footage at the station in Bangkok showed him spitting at a man who was buying tickets from a machine.
Authorities are now desperately trying to trace the spitting victim to stop him spreading the disease to others.
Anan, who was seen walking on a crutch, was travelling from Bangkok to Narathiwat after recently returning from Pakistan. He spat at the unknown passenger at Bang Sue station in Bangkok, where he boarded the train on Monday on which he was subsequently found dead.
At about 10.15pm, train staff found the passenger collapsed in front of a toilet when the train reached the Thap Sakae district. Medics performed tests on his dead body which showed a positive result for Covid-19. He also had diabetes.
