    So how many tests were done? If the testing regime is low in number, the virus will spread like wildfire undetected.

      Wikipedia has a page to compare testing by country.
      https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:COVID-19_testing_by_country

      Thailand is doing quite well in this regards. They have done millions of tests, and with a positivity rate of about 0.8%, this is very very good compared to other countries in the table. This means that Thailand is doing much more tests per infected person in the country than most of the countries on the list and is much closer to New Zealand and Taiwan in this regard than Britain and Germany.
