High anxiety - Dusit poll confirms the worst as Thailand suffers in pandemic

A Suan Dusit University poll painted a grim picture of the state of mind and finances of the Thai public in these virus infected times. 

 

The results from a sample of 1,239 people surveyed last week will come as no surprise to anyone. 

 

People were asked to comment on the top ten things concerning them apart from actually contracting Covid-19.

 

Nearly three quarters of respondents said that a rise in household expenses and a decline in their health were of most concern. 

 

Just over 67% cited a drop in salaries. 

 

Others around 60% spoke of the fears of having no chance to save, losing their jobs, increased debt, inability to pay school fees and just plain stress.

The NIDA statistical poll referenced in the BP today claims that almost 60% of those polled have not lowered their guard significantly or at all due to ongoing health considerations and well less than 10% claim they have significantly lowered their guard.

Good to hear but the government messaging needs to be much stronger that the threat from this virus isn't nearly over. Yes the step by step opening is good but in the context of understanding that it is conditional.
