Why some people think that there is no virus in Thailand when most people actually do not have any symptoms ?

Much of the credit goes to the Thai  people themselves for not being stupid and selfish as we have seen elsewhere.

 

Is amazing how stupid/selfish/difficult some people are. I hate them.

We testing thousands. Is all negative. If positive we test more people. 

Have you had a test? Why not?

No Thailand  isn't as good as the reports. Thailand would be a special case, and unique if it was. Unique because it would be the only country on the planet without a disease reservoir. 

You mentioned Taiwan (24m people),  which doesn't seem to have a disease reservoir.

Same for New Zealand AFAIK, and Mauritius and quite a few of small islands and territories. 

Vietnam is bigger (95m) and most probably didn't have a disease reservoir for quite a while,  the current outbreak has probably been imported. That can happen if you have hard to control land borders,  and that may happen to Thailand, too. 

 

And of course western countries can never acknowledge that a developing country from Asia handled things better than the British Empire or God's own country.

I agree with the O.P. Given the small numbers of testing here and obviously people with no or mild symptoms would not normally even seek testing if they could get it, the chance of there actually being ZERO cases in Thailand in the resident population is ZERO. That's the reason to keep masking and other measures. It is low. Let's keep it that way! One case can become millions without the proper measures as we see in the USA. Until the pandemic is under control globally Thailand isn't out of the woods.

How long? Depends of course. Perhaps two years.

 

Clearly the only smart way to think, but it seems difficult for many around here...

Fortunately, I don't have to decide whether that are covert carriers in Thailand or not.  All I have to decide is whether to wear my mask, wash my hands as often as possible, and stay home.  I do all three.
