On Tuesday, a 56-year-old man was found dead from coronavirus, and just before he died, he was filmed spitting in a stranger's face. Anan Sahoh, the man who can be seen in the viral clip, died after he took a train from Bangkok south to Narathiwat. Upon discovery of his body, he tested positive for COVID-19, Metro UK reports.
The security footage that has surfaced online was taken from Bang Sue station in Bangkok, and Sahoh can be seen ignoring social distancing markers in the line to buy tickets. He reportedly passed a temperature check before boarding the train, but when he was on board, he was seen vomiting and coughing. He collapsed and died in front of a toilet on board the train just as it reached Thap Sakae district station. Sahoh had just recently returned from Pakistan, and had passed virus checks at Survarnabhumi Airport. The carriage that he traveled on has since been disinfected by authorities.
"We are now worried about a man that was spat at in the security camera footage," said Thailand's State Railway director Thakoon Intrachom. "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." Additionally, he said the State Railway is now trying to track down the man who was spat on in the video. "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."
