I think it's way too difficult to tell, and definitely way too early to tell. 

It's simply too complex of an issue. We have yet to see the damage / lives lost from the economy / unemployment / homelessness / mental health issues etc. And we have yet to see what the actual death rate / damage of the virus was. I think it could be extremely overstated, but I really don't know, anyone who does think they know I think is overconfident. We have massive mislabeling of covid-deaths, we don't know if we can trust the tests. We don't know jack bro.

Best approach ever... Don't test. Thailand either has some very forward thinking people or the fact that they were not able to do a mass testing program is what has Thailand looking the best by the numbers (statistics). 

 

One protocol that underpins all other responses to this... don't test. If you don't test there is no emergency for the non-emergency. In other words don't create an emergency when there is none. And for those of you that think there is a legitimate emergency going on.... do this for me, go to ANY emergency room or ICU ANYWHERE in the world and tell me... is there an emergency there? I'll give you the answer, as I happen to know. No, there is no emergency there.

Thailand has had no new Corona cases reported for 50 or so days now , reason being that Thailand took steps early to stop the spread , borders were closed , intercity public transport was stopped , most things got closed own , curfews were imposed  , everyone wore masks , social distanced , hands sanitised many times per day

   Got rid of the virus .

IF every other Country would have taken the same measures , the World would be Corona free by now .

  Other Countries did not take the same measures and so the virus has spread .

Had every other Countries taken the same measures as Thailand did , the World would be Corona virus free by now 

Yes if everyone had taken the same measure, I.e, don’t test, they would also be Corona “free”. 
 

Saying it twice doesn’t make it any more believable.

Does anybody know how people Thailand has tested for Covid-19?

I did see a comment that Thailand has so far tested 700,000 people and that GB has tested 15 million people. IF true that is serious food for thought.

I agree with the success that the authorities have had in tackling the pandemic, no question they've done a lot of things right, however at this point in time with Covid virtually gone from the country they need to provide the general public and the masses with more assistance. The people need to get back on their feet, the authorities need to show more generosity and more sympathy in regard to the millions and millions of people who are currently out of work, and they need to come up with an intelligent strategy pertaining to International tourism.

 

There are many ways International tourists can be allowed into Thailand, in a very safe manner without the overzealous protectionism that's currently in place. This kind of thing really needs to be thought through as there are billions of dollars at stake and millions of jobs on the line. 

 

Easy for wealthy authorities to be overly careful. But, people need to live.

 

I have a suggestion. Every officer in the army, and every member of the administration forego your salaries and donate them to the public assistance fund, until the economy returns to normal. You proclaim to love your nation and it's people. Do not say it. That is meaningless. Show it! 

 It wasn't salaries that made authorities wealthy. Foregoing them would do nothing to help the poor masses. It would be justly seen as a cynical act of symbolism. Use some of those current accounts that are keeping the baht artificially high to bring in proper social programs such as unemployment insurance and a decent retirement benefit. Open free meal kitchens buying food from local farmers. Unemployed cooks and service staff could be put on the gov payroll.

One more who watched too many conspiracy theories.

It will change our DNA. Wow! That's where I stopped reading.

Why do so many people think that mainstream media reports incorrect and some nutters who spread conspiracy theories are right?

 

Maybe next thing we read is that the Amis brought the virus from the moon. But then they were never up there so that can't be true. Or maybe one of those flat-earthers got the virus from the edge of the flat earth. Maybe! I am sure the mainstream media would not tell us such horrific details.

No it wouldn't, unless everyone commits hari-kari. Viruses don't work that way or we'd be over the flu by now. The cat is out of the wuhan bag. Also, cast your mind back to when Thailand did nothing while thousands upon thousands of Chinese piled in. They have not done everything right, barring brainwashing easy minds.

Thailand began testing all people who entered from China from the middle of January

OK, you are suggesting that I have been brainwashed by the Thai authorities because I stated Thailand is Corona free .

  I am willing to listen and learn .

What evidence can you provide to show that Thailand isnt actually Corona free ?

Tell me  what you are basing your beliefs on
