The Philippines has some of the strictest lockdown and mask wearing mandates in the world.  If lockdowns and masks really worked, why are their numbers so bad?  What did TH do differently than PH?  As far as I know, nothing really.

Some possible explanations:

1. Widespread ignoring of the rules, by both citizens and local authorities.

2.  More crowding on public transport, other public areas, and in private housing.

3.  A lower level of public health; those with an underlying disease are more vulnerable to Covid-19.

4. Due to their proficiency in English, combined with relative poverty, The Philippines might have a higher percentage of their labour force working abroad than any other country on earth. I have seen suggestions as high as 10%. Perhaps a large number of their cases are repatriates (Filipino's who caught Covid-19 abroad.) Even in Thailand, repatriates now account for about 15% of total cases.

1) TH doesn't do this?

2) TH doesn't do this?

3) Where does this information come from?

4)  Were they allowed to go out in society with no testing, no lockdowns and no masks?  The answer is no.

 

Basically all of the answers given have zero relevance to the fact that the lockdowns were much more strict, the penalites for breaking mandated rules were harse, and masks have been widely enforced for many many months.

5. They are Christian and love religious mass gatherings (cf Indonesia,  Israel - similar kind of religion,  similar Covid problems)

6. They love music and singing.

 

1. and 2. are obviously the most important reasons, as I can personally attest.  No need to be a genius to figure this out.

But then,  OP isn't really asking a question,  he is just trolling.
