I wonder how they would have scored if the cut off date had been 2 or 3 weeks earlier?

And what it would be if it were counted up until right now?

Much has changed since late December after all.

Thailand has incarcerated 40,000  Samut Sakhon factory workers inside their place of work putting the infected in with the uninfected and is waiting for the uninfected to become infected to reach herd immunity so they can open the province and get back to making money.That's how Thailand is dealing with the pandemic.No isolation of the infected from healthy people if they are foreigners.Just bundle them all in together and keep them working until they drop dead.

You mean after they bundled 40,000 factory workers together without isolating the infected from the uninfected whilst they wait for herd immunity deliberately allowing them to become infected?As reported in another article today.

I am sure UNHRC are monitoring the situation, and there will questions asked of the Thai Authorities from the US and EU over possible Human Rights violations in the Fish Canning Industry in Thailand.

I possibly see a ban on Thai tinned Fish coming soon.

If you go and take a look at the leader board, you'll find that 6 out of the top 10 places go to island nations, with no troublesome land borders to deal with. Which IMO makes Thailand's performance that much more laudable.

 

Way to go Thailand, keep it up.

Lock up the infected, barricade the migrants in their factories and homes, and hope like hell they obtain herd immunity.  Has anyone every heard of such an atrocity before.  For this they are lauded as having it under control and having a great response.  Well credit is due to all of the island countries ahead of Thailand, but no credit is due to Thailand when they destroy human rights and freedoms people have.  Treating migrants like cattle is just plain old xenophobic on their part, and mostly because they do not want to spend the money in truly caring for them.

I just read that in the other paper. Quite unbelievable and the doctor openly stating the aims of this is reach herd immunity within the migrant workers. TBH I'm speechless. Deplorable.

I don't know the ranking of India, but to me they are on the right track since September 2020 to get this mess under control.

India is currently ranked 2nd for the total number of cases but has only 112 deaths per million of population compared to the US which is rank 1st in total number of infections and has 1444 deaths per million of population.Thanks for the link to the article which is a bit of a kick up the rear for the western countries when it comes to dealing with the pandemic.

This is the way to stop the infection spreading and killing hundreds of thousands of people like in the US etc.

The Thais are more focused on saving their lives than worrying about freedom and rights nonsense. 
The virus doesn’t care about “rights” of Karens, the PC brigade, farangs refusing to wear free masks handed out by the health minister etc 

Sensible approach. 
 

fourth best in the world for handling the Covid situation. 
stunning result. 
Thankyou people of Thailand. Keeping us safe from this shocking pandemic that is killing millions.

Some people will try to turn it into a negative.

I think the Thais that run the show don't care much about saving lives as much as they care about making a mint out of this sht fight.That's how market forces work.The pandemic is just a business tool.

Its a pity they do not think of the lives of the migrants who are at risk of being infected to see how their experiment in herd immunity goes.

Responding and achieving something are two totally different things.

Not true, they are mixing them together deliberately and waiting for herd immunity. Direct from the CCSA spokesman Dr Taweesilp

Most Thais already were wearing masks, well at least in Bangkok, and it was due to the PM 2.5 readings and the air quality.  I have been wearing them myself for a few years already when the Air quality was bad so it was not much of a change to wear it everyday in the stores or on public transport.  Same with using the in house air purifier in all of the rooms in the house.

Where does it say that Frits?If I could I would link the story where they say they are isolating both and are waiting for herd immunity but I'm not allowed to link it.

No link but a reworked version was found "The Government is waiting for these un-infected workers to develop herd immunity.  Because of being placed in together with other who have been found positive they might get mild levels of infection from their ill colleagues, Dr Taweesilp said.  The Government believes that once there was herd immunity, business and other activities could resume in the province."

Not most Thais in Bangkok, people wore them while having a cold and only a couple because of PM 2.5

Lot less people would die if they where ranked 4th in responding to drunk drivers , red light crossers , no helmet wearers etc . The 4th place in responding to covid only counts when the nr's are correct and i am sure they have never been .

Surely the point now is how you recover from Covid19, and return your economy to something like normal. Whatever the arguements about how the UK has handled the pandemic, at least there is a vacination plan that is going to potentially see everyone vacinated by October, I do not see Thailand being able to reopen until they also have a similar plan.
