Know Your Emergency Numbers – country by country comprehensive list

In this current situation with the Corona virus impacting people, do you know the emergency numbers of the country you are going to?

In many parts of the world, people believe the emergency phone number is 911, the North American response number. It is not universal nor is 999, the UK number.  112 has become standard in many parts of the world but not everywhere.

Also, in some countries, there is one number for all services: fire, police and ambulance. In other nations, the numbers are different for each service.

I encourage people to know the emergency service number (s) of the country they are going to before travel. Write the numbers down and have them in your passport/purse/wallet and /or programmed into your phone. When in a crisis situation, you may not be able to count on your memory to work or be able to easily find the number.

Make sure you have travel insurance.

The advice is if you have beento mainland China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau and you experience cough or fever or shortness of breath within 14 days of leaving those countries  stay inside and call for emergency help.
