Plus the racist health minister who lambasted farangs for not taking masks from his filthy polluted hands has now conceded they don't really help after all. They are currently trying to trace over a 1000 Thais who have already returned from Korean hot spots, who have had no testing whatsoever. Not to mention the confusion over the 5000+ Thai's still there (illegally). They took no action against the many Chinese that continued to enter Thailand even after China blocked all tour groups from travelling. Locally, there were reports of hostility to such Chinese. Yes, it's good they have sanitisers everywhere, and have increased cleaning of public areas in the main Malls, but to my mind, it's more luck than judgement that the numbers are as low as claimed. If you don't test, you don't find. But that applies everywhere.
Where Thailand does benefit is from a professional health service just going about doing what they have to do irrespective of the rants of the clowns who govern them. I had a minor op at a hospital here where a diagnosed sufferer was in quarantine and it was business as usual. And it was through such medics that the one reported death became known about.
