    The chances are the figures for new cases and deaths will continue to rise until Prayut grasps the nettle and imposes a robust and meaningful lockdown for at least 2 weeks. He should learn from the mistakes of other Countries. It’s false economy allowing non essential services to be open at all. At this rate the GDP will once again be lowered.
    Prayut may have been good with his shopping list for weapons, tanks etc but his shopping list for securing Covid vaccines is embarrassing. At this rate the death too will reach 3 figures (daily) before the end of the month.

    31 deaths in a day is as many as die of flu in Thailand in an average year.
