This can only be determined by mass random testing    How many people has Thailand tested to reach this conclusion - what is the "R-Rate" across the country   Without the above you

The Asian Flu of 1957-58 a deadly pandemic that killed over a million worldwide.  116,000 in the US at a time with a much lower population.  No lockdowns, no economic destruction, immune systems ada

When will it be a concern? You must act now! Before we find out that these cheap vaccines that are coming in don't really work so good. Give the Thai people and us a choice of vaccines.

Unfortunately we have low-end falang walking along Pattaya Beach road between 5 pm to 7 pm shirtless, no masks, no social distancing at a time when the beach is most crowded. No cooperation and completely oblivious to their surroundings. The same type of people who intentionally remove or adjust their masks as  soon as theey pass shopping mall security. This behaviour only infuriates Thais and adds fire to the tightening of immigration laws.

Obviously that’s not creating a problem according to the WHO

Thailand's Covid-19 situation is not severe, an infectious disease expert at MedPark Hospital, said on Sunday.

 

Asst Prof Mondej Sookpranee said the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Johns Hopkins (JHU) evaluate the situation in each country once they receive information.

 

According to WHO, Thailand's number of Covid-19 cases from December 14 to January 14 and 24-hour average were 7,025 and 271 respectively, accounting for an infection rate of 10.2 per cent and 0.4 per cent respectively per 100,000 population.

 

Meanwhile, JHU said the country's number of Covid-19 cases in the past 30 days and 24-hour average were 7,189 and 459 respectively, accounting for an infection rate per 100,000 population of 10.4 per cent and 0.7 per cent respectively.

 

"Both organisations have evaluated Thailand in "not high burden and not growing" countries, thanks to people's cooperation to contain the spread of the virus", Mondej said.

 

He urged Thais to continue following the government's Covid-19 prevention measures.
