Yes. Please explain what benefit was derived which isn't a benefit accrued to the population as a whole. Here we see politicians acting in good faith and for the benefit of society. Especially do explain how they are benefiting from pushing back against anti vax sentiment in a way which is inimical to the benefit of their populations. Provide references to bolster your story.

 

That is why I posted the definition of exploit.

I posted this because I consider this to be a positive political trend.

My second post was to make sure it didn't get deleted as "non-Thailand related."

The term exploit is very clearly defined as a negative motive

 

"make use of (a situation) in a way considered unfair or underhand."

 

to use someone or something unfairly for your own advantage:

I posted the first definition that came up when I searched for a definition for exploit.

It was neutral.

exploit definition "make full use of and derive benefit from (a resource)."

from Oxford Languages via google.

Apparently some political leaders are looking to exploit bad feelings against the unvaccinated.

Thailand may not be exempt from this trend, we will see.

 

Well it makes a change from those other political leaders exploiting anti-vaccine misinformation with the predicted outcome of large numbers of unnecessary serious illnesses, hospitalizations and deaths.

Given that one of the main reason for lack of vaccinations is the government's seemingly deliberate poor management of the vaccine rollout and inferior vaccine selection, this seems unlikely.

Maybe, but after a terrible start Thailand now has vaccination statistics comparable with the UK and US. 

But I was concerned that this topic would be deleted as "not Thailand-related" if there was no explicit connection to Thailand.

Simply amazing that a wealthy, arguably entitled, sports star, who resides in Monaco no less, is a working-class hero to the unvaxxed.

 

Meanwhile Serbian president Aleksandar Vučić is making the most of the situation.

 

He's going to have to get vaccinated if he wants to get to 21 and beyond.

Remember when we used to ask the question of how the Nazi's came to commit mass atrocities? Well this is how. Listening to some of the world leaders you can totally understand how under war conditions they would slaughter millions of their own people.

 

Don't think it can't happen again.

One more point to Godwin.
