Western expats and tourists a drop in the bucket

Of course. The Chinese who are applying for special, additional extensions to avoid the virus back home have to visit immigration more often and spend more time there. There will be a disproportionate number of them there for at least the next few months, while most westerners will opt to return home rather than extend and risk getting trapped by canceled flights in March and April. This whole week is going to be a humiliating international rebuttal of Thailand's claim that it has magically few infections.

 

Certainly a factor, but not the only factor.

There is certainly a change, reason it seems empty in western bars/restaurants etc but busy at immigration. In CM immigration it is mostly asians now when I go there. 
But I guess expats and tourists in general aren't that significant, Let's say tourism is down 50% it is still 'only' around 6.5% of their GDP. For expats it must be far far less.

Tell that to the "young folks" in the "Arab Quarter" of Pattaya:

 

"In Kuwait, we cannot even look at a woman," he said.

"In Thailand, nobody cares what you do."
