Thailand's Response - An Outside View

Post by jackspratt » June 22, 2020, 7:43 am

For those on here who have been critical, or cynical, or disbelieving, or even pleasantly surprised at how Thailand has handled the CV-19 epidemic - here is a report from Australia's national broadcaster which generally praises the response, but also recognises the minor hiccups.
Thailand had the world's first coronavirus case outside China. Here's how it avoided disaster

Thailand is emerging as another success story in the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is all the more remarkable considering the country was the first outside of China to detect a case of COVID-19 back in January.

At the time, there was intense speculation the virus could ravage South-East Asia.

But Thailand — along with Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar and Vietnam — have all had low case numbers despite sharing porous borders with China and being densely populated.........

A good read by the Australian media.

The health minister's farang blame game is only getting bandwidth from a few noisome farangs. The Thai's don't speak of it. Notably, in the linked article about Thailand's public health successes, he doesn't even get a mention.

Maybe we should do the same?
