Cooperation is the driving force in surviving the pandemic

Volunteers have been playing a crucial role in keeping Thailand’s health system working and have helped save lives, admitted Assistant Secretary-General of National Health Security Office, Dr. Yupadee Sirisinsuk.

 

She said that, when the COVID-19 outbreak was at its peak in July this year, the health service system in Thailand was close to collapse. The authorities decided they had to introduce a new model of care, home and community isolation (HI-CI). The volunteers, who had been helping vulnerable people long before that, also helped to close the gaps in the system.

 

“The data shows that some patients were having to wait several days for treatment. As we saw in the news, some died in their homes because no one followed up on their condition. Volunteers filled this gap. They helped to monitor the symptoms, provide emotional support and even supply oxygen tanks for severe symptom patients.”

Set up a "National Health Volunteers" day to show appreciation. They've played such an important part in the pandemic in Thailand and continue to do so. Do it yearly and continue to attract people with good intentions to volunteer.

Totally agree.  If there was any sense of cooperation on the roads the daily death toll would halve. This lack is apparent on every soi littered with rubbish; every fire spreading carcinogenic fumes; every dog allowed to roam any road.

Yes well done to the hard working health workers who have put themselves at risk in the front line. Time for their regime to stop filling the pockets and order and deliver effective innoculation to all. Thousands are dyng, mamed or will have bankruptcy , long Covid and debt while they do nothing but promise.

The pressure is on the authorities. Their knickers are starting to show as to the piled up mangling regarding most everything. 

Something's got to give. 

Save for the fashionable demonstrations on the streets, there might be a rebellious spirit looming among the truer populations. 

 

Awaiting.
