BANGKOK (NNT) - A survey, by Thailand’s Public Health Ministry, taken between 16 and 31 May, has found that over 85% of Thai people are on guard against COVID-19.

 

Department of Health Service Support Director-General Dr Tares Krassanairawiwong said the survey, which was conducted on 25,265 samples nationwide, showed 94.8% of respondents were paying attention to the wearing of face masks, washing their hands with soap or alcohol gel (88.8%), eating (87.9%) and maintaining social distancing (83%). The respondents also avoid gatherings and interprovincial travel.

 

The survey also showed that 65% to 75% of people want to be vaccinated against COVID-19, while the Public Health Ministry is encouraging people to get their COVID-19 jabs, to build herd immunity.

 

According to the ministry, the total number of COVID-19 vaccine doses administered in Thailand, as of 18 June, was 7,483,083, of which 5,434,119 people were given their first dose and 2,048,964 people have received both doses.

No other real options available at the moment.

Self protection until vaccines are available in numbers to math the population.

The data did not include that 90% had admitted walking into a lamp post whilst using a mobile phone......
