Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul has asked members of the public to stay calm over the ministry’s proposal to designate COVID-19 as Thailand’s 14th dangerous infectious disease.

 

In his Facebook post today, the minister said that the proposal, which he and the Infectious Disease Control Committee is yet to endorse, is intended to support medical personnel performance in containing the spread of coronavirus and to provide legal cover for official actions.

 

He said that members of the Infectious Disease Control Committee are senior doctors, who have experience in coping with infectious diseases, adding that people can still pursue a normal life.

not in Thailand - the numbers have been going down since first reported 3 weeks ago completely bucking the trend reported from all other countries - it's a miracle 

 

Thailand is managing this so well they have given up reporting "under investigation cases and testing" and just instruct people to go home self isolate and not tell anyone, they are right on it

You might say they've got it COVID 19 times over!

That's Thainess 101. Stick your head in the sand and work hard on pretending everything is well, while somebody is ramming a tree trunk up the trademan's. Kreng jai, na.
