  1. OK, then not a surprise. People who are foolish enough not to respect Thai officials or law enforcement get what they deserve. I think people who believe the whole "land of smiles" story don't realize what a fine line we all walk.

This will help make it unnecessary to vaccinate every single person in the country in order to contain the virus and dramatically lower the R value.
